The next t i m e she looked down at the terrace, the shadows were Bone from the bright reflection, II mtis! hnve been Aunt MillJcunt •before, and now she had settled down with her magazine for the rest nf Ihe evening. Amy's bedroom was on tills side of the house. Could Katherine make her way down tho length of Ihe slanting roof She looked over her shoulder at it, squinting, trying hard to sec it clearly, barely able to distinguish a sort of dark, li eaeherous wetness stretching all around her. If she made even one slip . . . It was jusl at this moment —21 mliui'.es alter eight, as she looked at her watch — that she heard a sound from the room below her. She couldn't Icll what it was for a second, and then she realized dial it was the sound of someone's shoe stepping onto the metal threshold of the long windows. Someone, was standing there below her looking out into the rain. She leaned forward again, craning, and peered at the reflection. She could not make it out clearly. Tho rain slanted softly across it, and splashed irilo it, wrinkling ihf> surface, the hi irk t; pr.Umrht v a• <n - .iud£>, in- tiUtificlj il fflithl nSt* bWfi Atlfil MilliceM; it fnljht hftte '-' Pa\il. And then the Shadow ffiov'cd. f(s rti-ms waved iri the rofjcdtlori. The person In the doohVny Was lighting a cigarette.

She leaned nut as far as she cotilc beyond the odgd ot the roof, afic said sofily — wondering if the sound would carry through Ihe j-nlr) __. or .just .tiow far U woulc carry: "Auhl Millicehl." The shadow moved again. It Was looking around; ahd Iheh A.unl M i 11 i c o n I' s voice dMfted up "Katherine" "Yes." "Ara you titiisidc" "Yes." "Bui v/liy doh't you come in side Where are you Whal arc you doing?" Knthcrine said, "Shhh," again mid Ihcn as distinctly as sh. could, Irylntf still to keep her voice just above a whisper: "' can't get down. I'm on the roof Conic and help me." And then, at last, with escape so close to her, she. could no i Jon per control herself; she began [ to cry w h i 1 c the rain poured down her face. The shadow disnppercad for a moment. Aunt Milllccnt's voice floated up, a sound of purpose in the drifting rain, "Jusl lut me get a coal." Almost as soon as she was gone, it seemed she was back again. Knlhcrinc leaned forward again ^nd hoard her say, "Darling Look at you! What en earth have you been doing" Katherine shook her head. She whispered loudly, trying to make her voice sound forceful, assured, "I can't get down- without a ladder." Some of Aunt Milliccnt's confidence returned, She Said, "But darling, it's not far il all. Jusl jump right on down and I'll catch you. Il isn't more than 12 or '13 feet."
