"We'll give you enough gas to get to a station. Got oil and water?" "Yeah. But I didn't want gas [while we were carrying it" j "Let's go, then." "Grab on," Ricky said, tossing fcis gold cup on the front seat. "Ricky . . ." .Sharon was still troubled. "Let's wait for the truck." He laughed and patted her cheek. "You're still worried about Link. He won't be anywhere near any parade I lead. And we won't race, will we, guys?" "Race?" Jerry repeated, trying to look shocked. "We're DTA members." Still grinning he added seriously, "We won't do anything to gum up the works, Sharon, Don't worry." The boys laid hands on the little coupe and rolled it toward one of the big doors. Sharon folio wed,'actually pleased that they would drive back. She hadn't .ridden in the coupe, and she •wanted to know what it was like too. Before they left, Ricky and Sharon got hamburgers. But .neither was able to eat. Ricky took a couple of quick bites and then decided he wasn't hungry. "You look half - starved," Sharon said. "I just can't eat," he said, get- iting to his feet "Let's get started." Ricky drove out of Des Moines very slowly, with Link, Jerry, Chub and Sherm following. They blew their horns, but not to make him hurry. They wanted everyone to §e« that they belonged with the prize-winning little car, "Runs like a top," Ricky said to Sharon "Handles like a dream. It's a feather. Oh, ba^y, but I bet it can drag! Some I I'M iMMi t» AM « *MM bf NEA Scrvic*. where I can find out what it will really do." "Not tonight," Sharon cau-> tioned. "Still worrying? I won't be careless. I've got everything to be careful for now. Why. I'm in business. I really am. I can probably get a bank loan now if I need money. Kid, I've got it made!" They drove out of Des Moines on to the open highway. The night was bright and clear, the road was dry, there was little traffic. Ricky pressed down on the gas pedal with just a little pressure. The coupe picked up like a bird; It rolled smoothly, easily, without effort, the twin pipes crooning. He glanced at his speedometer. Sixty! It didn't seem possible. He'd thought he was doing 45, at the most There was that much difference between the new coupe and the old. Maybe that's 1 what new shocks did for it—plus everything else. He sailed down the smooth white highway behind his lights. It was so easy, so effortless. What a feeling, driving a rod that did everything right Look at that ... 70, and he wasn't even trying. It was like something alive. It wanted to go. He couldn't hold it back. TTE glanced at Sharon. She looked peaceful, happy and pretty. The ride was so smooth she didn't even know he was hitting 70. If it was that smooth, it couldn't .be considered speeding. He looked in his rear-vision mirror. /The guys were giving him plenty of room as they trailed him. Nobody was risking a sudden stop and a bump. Good fuys! Ricky began to hum. Sharon loqked at him and smiled. "Happy?" she asked. "So happy I could loop -the loop with this baby." "You sound happy." for ..." He sang it "Mainly you." "Me?" "You talked me into entering the show after I'd given up." "I knew you would do a good job, I guess. And it was important not to give up the DTA ideals. That won a lot of respect for you." "You did it, though. I was ready to give up and go back to ratting around." "But you didn't" "I won't, ever. I'm through with that crazy stuff. When I think of the crazy things I used to do. ... I was stupid." Sharon sighed and leaned back. She looked tired. Ricky smiled and began to sing quietly. He kept glancing at her sweet, relaxed face. Her eyes closed, the long lashes lying darkly against her cheeks. There was a faint smile on her full red mouth. He wanted to lean over and . . . The lights were moving up on him. He knew ... he knew. . . . The lights coming fast, like an arrow aimed at the back of his head. * * * CO this was Link's way. He wanted another of the sam* . . . the bumping, the bullying, and a fight, so he could use hi» fists. ... It was Link all right, and he was riding inches away from Ricky's back bumper. Ricky glanced at Sharon. She was asleep. Tired as she was, car motion wouldn't wake her. And once, just once. ... It would be better than beating Link in a fight. Better than anything. It was the only thing that would cut Link down to size. Ricky knew now what was missing in his life. He had accomplished everything, reached every goal but the one he had striven for the longest without progress. Once to beat Link at something! And this was it. This was th« " way. The night or day that he ran Link's convertible into the ground, the fight would be won. His life would be complete. It was all he needed to make everything perfect. Just once, and Link would never dare be' *t him again.
