As she opened her eyes the dawn was just beginning to stim pink streamers of light into the sky. A soft cool May breeze plucked at the sprigged chinl?. drapes and bore a flowery fra- prance into the room, mingled with the dank wet smell of the river. Somewhere a rooster crowed tn- v sistcntly and a do.; began to bark. ^ The dog was probably Steve's : htinling dog Cass. Wasn't it silly she should remember a dog's name after all this time? She began to think about Steve Wysong as she lay there. She had felt an odd stir of excitement when she had seen him yoslcrdny and she felt it again now. Presently she threw back (he covers and got out of the warm bed and padded in her bare feet to the window. The sun won id soon be up. She could ct!£h the river smell more strongly now and hear the rush of water over the riftle. Another sound floated up the hill, echoing faintly, tho sound of metal striking wood and the clanking of a chain. That would be Steve gelling his boat oul to go up the river anc: run his lines before the misl rose from 1lic river On sudden impulse Laurie opened one of her suitcases anc rummaged in it, bringing out a pair of p.ile blue shorts, a while • shirt monogrammed in K iue and isome blue rope sandals. Her hands By henc frnhorl shook as she began to dress. If ;he didn't hurry she'd never be ible to catch him. A splash of icy vater on her face from the bath- oom lap, a hasty brush or two at her hair and a couple of expert daubs with a lipstick at her mouth and she was off, down the stairs and out the front door, eagerness making her feet fi: . Steve's boat had already left his dock. She trolled along the path at the edge of the • -ter, following ;he sound of the creaking oarlocks. The mist was so thick it was hard to keep in the path. "Steve 1 ." she called out, "Wait for mel" • * » 'T'HE creaking of the oarlocks ceased for an instant and then began again as the boat was pulled toward the bank. The dip of the oars sounded rhythmic in the stillness, a dark blur in the mist emerged gradually into first the shape of the boat and then Steve's figure hunched over the oars. "Laurie?" He peered at her through the misL "Great guns what are you doing up this early?" You always used to let me help you run your lines that other summer- Remember?" The boat bumped the sandy bank and Steve stood tip, holding out his hand. She fell the warm strength of his grasp as stepped down. The boat rocke< slightly and she settled herself on the wet seat, squirming a lilt I because it felt damp and cold on her bare thighs. "Lovely morning. Isn't it?" she said. She wrinkled her nose anc moved a bait bucket full of craw dads out from unrter her feet. "Why Laurie, what's the mat ter?" Steve said grinning. "An old fisherman like yon shouldn mind the smel! of dead crawdads Besides there couldn't be mor than one or two dead ones in lha bucket. The rest . are nice an lively. Louis and 1 seined them nly yester<iny." He tipped up his altered old brown hat with the ies on it, and picked up the oars gain and pulled the boat or I into e stream. "They smell like they're all cad," Laurie replied. Laurie was aware of : quick varm feeling of sheer pleasure. he loved the river, the smell and ne feel and the sound Oi it. It •mist be something she had in- critcd from her father, she :i ought, "Is that the same hat you wore he last time I was here?" she sked Steve, for want of some- iiing to say. "Nope. Lost that one in the big ool by the rock cliffs where we Iways fish for channel catfish. Remember the place? 'ind blew t off one day and it sank before could get to it. I'll probably look into it and think I've got a good fat channel cat on my line ometime." , He slopped rowing and let Ihe boat clrif with the current for a second or two while •. lit. his pipe, A drift of sweet smelling tobacco smoke floated on the morning air. * • » I" AURIE studied the strong lean " lines ot Steve's face. He was much more handsome than she had remembered. His face was .hin, almost angular, but the bone structure was fine. He had a ,lrong mouth witii a hint of gen- ilencss about it and there .were laughter crinkles at the corners of nis eyes. She was struck all at once by the incongruity of her ^in^ here, with a man who was practically a ^stranger, sitting in a damp smelly old row boat on a river in the mist at 5 o'clock in the morning, when o. ly yesterday she had been in New York. This seemed like a different world. It was a different ./orld! One that her fricnns in New York, her mother and Mark and Fletcher did not dream existed, and would not have appreciated even if they had known it. Fletcher and Mark went fishing sometimes, but they flew down to Florida and fished from Mark's big cabin cruller.
