We get somu exjiosure, of course, and if it's Ijad. we knock oil (or e month, bul we'-c pretty carclul." There wos a monitor apparatus, so delicate that it picked up and constantly buzzed with the cosmic rays in the air. and when Surinov held it to the walJ t.iat faced the oihez room where the radioactive solutions were kept, its buzzing ticks redoubled in mechanical fury. There was something .he called a "culie-pie"— a movable instrument (or detecting spillage on dry innocent-lookir.f; surhices. There was the film badge he earned in his pocket to record exposure. I "This piece of camera lilro," he [explained, "is alTected b- the rays, ;co whon you develop it, the dark;ness reveals the amount of radia- i lion the body is getting. Trie mort I exposure, thj blacker the film." i And he showed her. too. the Ibt.ick plastic ring he wore on Ms 'finecr. which also contained film. »•* Ito p«M .~^ K«*rt^ IT HEA UtVICE. ST^ He picked up a box and spilled its contents out on a table—dozens of black rings. SI slipped one on her Index finger. It was [ar too large. "Show you how we fix that —modern method." he said, and he proceeded to wrap It with adhesive tape. While he 'xed the ring for her. she hid the symbolism of their play in Idle chatter. "Honestly! •Culie-pie. stiU. there's something kind of admirable about the American Irreverence for danger Or maybe it's not irreverence, maybe it'i a wry acknowledgment. Anyway. it'« gallant and " love vis for it." "You'd have loved the Oak Ridgers then. They had aome lulus for nicknames. There ar about 30-odd meters for detecting gamma rays and almost every one had a slang term. There was the •Walkie-Squ a w kie'—that one squawked. And the 'Walkie-Poppie' . ." "Thai popped." "Smari girl." He continued to pad the ring. -And then Uiere was 'Chang and Eng' after the Siamese twins, and one they called 'Pluto' until the bras* in Washington decided it sounded too much like plutonium, which at that time might have been a giveaway, so they rechnstened It •Zeus.' 1 think the slang came from the constant emphasis on secrecy. You oegin to be atraid to say an;- real names out loud and so you made up silly ones as a kind of code. Here, madam, made to order." He slipped the ring on her third finger, turning its face palmward. "That's the way you wear It—with the dim case inside. That is, if you wan t its m.-igic to work. But you don't, CHE continued to look up at him, UunkJng h« was g 0in j to more but he stopped and their eyes locked. She £elt the great lurch of her innards and Uien the aick watering of her bones. Her own lips parted and the air broke in cool pieces in her fevered mouth, and she threw Her bud back, thinking, "1 don't car*, tt t die for it, I don't care." When she felt his solid Up*, solid as 11 they too 'iad bones, come down on her warm ones, and his arms go solidly around her. she could have cried with loving herself for not having moved away. Outside, the scene was the *ame. What had she thought to see- trees creaking i, a black wind? One kiss was very little, after all. Now thai she was gone from him. she wanted more, much more, everything, again and again and forever and only witi him. She let despair '\vet r through her. partly because fiere was solace in melodrama and because it distracted her from the physical longing of which she must rid herself before she could face Peter Surinov again. Perhaps he already knew from the way she had returned his kiss. • • • UT when she heard hfi roice behind her. she knew that she had not given herself away. It was not the rich baritom of the lecturer. It had picked up sediment, lost authority. "1—1 don't know what to say. Won't you just turn around?" She wheeled stowly, and the sight of him further composed her. She saw him, lank and forlorn, pigeon-toed and baggy- kneed, with his head to one tide as If it had been slapped there. Who could feel love for a hangdog? Where was the nil. white- coated superman whose arms had made a cave around her and whose lips had promised everythin* she knew she was misting'' Her face firmed to a nerveless nwlu, *i,<! she said, "That wa? stupid of us." "I know it was. Please don't be mad. 1—you're so lovely." His big hands came up and Happed down like a seal's. "I'm not in the least angry. Don't be silly.
