She was going to tell me." In the. silence Kaly watched them, Dave, who wanled to believe, Sheriff Henry Leclhetler whose moustached, ruddy face could not hide his doubt, "It that's true—" "Wait, Hank," Dave Jtrgus slopped the sheriff. Then, with that deceptively quiet gentleness that \ arned Katy not to trust him, "Tell us about it, Kaly." Kaly told them. About Agnes Jerome's lelcphone call, and the long wait when she did not come. "I wailed hours, nearly all night, before I went lo bed. And then this morning, I—well—there she was. Major lound her." Dave Argus nodded, trading a look with Ledbetter before he asked, "While you wailed, Kaly, whal did you do?" "Nothing. I just—waited, until —oh, I don't know, Dave! It seemed like hours. I called the place where she works—worked." Past tense. Katy, her English leacher's mind corrected automatically. Again Dave Argus nodded. "She wasn't there. She hadn't been there for more than two hours when you called," he supplied the information from Ihe results of their own questioning. "Before she left she made a telephone call from a pay station in the restaurant. U* U»il«od«c Mjra. Preiuaj- ably that was when she called you." Katy listened. There was not much else she could do. They knew more than she did about Agnes Jerome's movements last night, "She caught the northbound bus, the short local run, at 10:17," Deputy Argus continued, while Henry Ledbelter went on watching, cat-like. He had that look. Katy couldn't help thinking. A big fat tomcat waiting to pounce on a cornered mouse—Katy. She made herself look at Dave. "She lefl the bus a mile from town, al your lane. The driver waited while she ran across the road through your gate. She looked frightened. 'Scared half to death' is the way he put it." "He didn't see anyone else?" Katy knew the answer, even before Argus shook his head, "There was someone, you know," she insisted, fighting to keep her voice from lunging upward toward hysteria. "Someone who trailed the bus in his car and then followed her into Ihe woods and killed her. The same person," she added stubbornly, "who killed my brother and Mr. Murphy." The Sunday afternoon quiet hung like a pal! over the courthouse, which would ordinarily have been wholly descried. Now there was a murder to solve and people were there. In the stillness Henry Lcrlbcller's sigh seemed noisy, affecled. "For your sake. Miss Elmo," he said heavily, "I hope so." Thiry let Katy go home, finally, when it seemed lhat they never would, and Kaly walked alone into the Oclober sunshine. /"iHRIS! . . . Chris —but she, couldn't cry now, any more than she could in those first hours of shock when they said her brother had died a burglar—a Something wa£ dead 'ilhin her. . . . The dreams, hopes, mbitions. even the pleasantnesses of their childhood lhat she and Chris cherished because memories ind dreams—and each other— .vere all they had had since Christopher and Kalherinc Elmo died "i a motor car accident when Chris •as nine and Katy 11 years old. II seemed like such a long lime ago, those 15 years—but not so long as that night two weeks ago when.Ted came to see her. "II— it's Chris, Katy. He's— dead." Ted had stumbled through it, somehow, and Katy had listened, her heart constricting, withering, dying a little, too, at his words. "I—Kaly. I don't know how to tell you." Uul he did tell her, and when he had finished Katy, stunned, just slood there by the fireplace. then not yc! opened for the Fall and camouflaged with a huge bouquet of goldr-nrod Chris had picked that morning. She must have moaned aloud, for Ted moved to take her in his arms. "Please, Tod—" she pushed him away. "Please go, Ted." "You shouldn't be alone." '1 am alone. Terribly alone—" 'You needn't be, darling. Oh," contritely, "I know this isn't the time but, Katy, I love you. I want to hctp you, Katy If I can." • * * p^ATY didn't remember turning away from him, bnl she must have. .She was standing at Ihe window, staring dry-eyed into the night, when he went oul lo his car and drove inlo Ihe blackness out yonder like a madman, running away from grief as she could nol run from hers. She moved like an automaton, down the broad stone steps at the front of the weathered gray courthouse and along Ihe walk past boys playing calch on the lawn, frosl-hilten and brown after last night. Her car wr.s at the curb. She got into it, dully aware o( a gnawing uneasiness that was neither Ihe worry and the grief she had come to know so well in the last two weeks nor the new sense of a trap closing on her. She had not had either breakfast nr lunch. No wonder she felt a nauscn'ins weakness. (!• B* Contained) WEU-.WHAT PO VOU THINK OF TH 1 OWE WHO'S ' HIS LIFE TD BE A SCW1E- BOPV?
