I heaved a great sjgh, and went down to the car. -Now what?" said John Mills. "Drive around the' block" 1 suggested. "Stop under that same sycamore tree." We went around the block and he stopped the car under the sycamore and turned off the lights. An instant later'two dark figures emerged from the bushes. 1 had the door open, and Lucy and Uw Governor lumped in. The Governor said tensely. "Get going. Johnny." John Mills turned onto the highway ana the car moved swiftly westward. A low cloudbank hid Ihe stars, and lightning flashed up ahead. John Mills said casually, "Ixioks like we might have rain We need rain around here." We approached the lights of the city, filmed by rain, and John turned off onto a black-top road lo the airport. The storm was at llr height when he drove up to the administration building and stopped. "You people wail here," he said. "Ill go in and lake a look." WE sal silent in the rain. I had ™ been thinking, and I said over my shoulder, "I guess we can depend on Ginny to keep her mouth shut We don't have to worry about her." Lucy Slrawn drew In a deep. breath. "Roy, do you mean to say she knows?" |*Ves, I guess she knows," I said. But she wouldn'l tell, Lucy." "Oh, wouldn't she!" Lucy-cried. : "No," I said lamely. "She told me she wouldn'l tell if MJSS ilaltie didn't, And we know. Miss Haiti*, won't." John Mills threw the car doot open and leaned In. Rain dripped from the brim ot his hal and his weary eyes looked like hollows in his head. "No flights tonight, Willie," ha said.
