She drove through town without actually seeing it, only vaguely aware that people turned to look at her. There would be no pity in their eyes now, as there had been after Chris's death; there would"be curiosity, scorn, contemptuous I- told you so glances. "Stop It, Katy!" her common sense scolded. The highway was jammed with Sunday afternoon traffic, but no until she found herself neatly sandwiched between a jalopy crammed to its battered extremi ties with eager, boisterous teen agers and a convertible that Icerei out of her rear-view mirror di she see why. She moaned aloud, "Oh nor The tie-up was at her own driveway, where another of Led belter's deputies was trying t keep the sight-seers moving.

"I'm Scott," the otTicer sakl You'll find Deputy Donnell at the louse, Elmo." Katy wondered if they had come o arrest her.

That was the way It had begun— Ted was their guest for a month then two months, until he cam one day to say he had a joh an was taking a room in town. I couldn't say she was sorry, ox actly. She liked Ted, but havin him around all the time was un handy, just the same; it meant a ways planning for three instead o two, always remembering that yo were hostess.

Katy tried to call Johnny back, but Johnny either didn't hear her, or wouldn't return. Katy sighed, and gave her car gas. As she moved on up the driveway she could still hear the horns of the Sunday sightseers on the highway. People were enjoying the thrill of looking at the place where a murder had occurred.
