He could make out a darker shape now, could see wildly swirling hair streaming in the water. He pulled again, pulled more strongly. He could not budge the body wedged there so tightly. Nancy's body.

Lighter fluid from her lighter for Miss Wistcr. "Gasoline, turpentine, alcohol, chemical, lighter fluid." Over and over, the words lending themselves for the proper liming. It came at last, the sign for which Jim had waited. To him the most beautiful sound in the whole world—the sobbingg "catch- of-the-brcath," and a series of gasping irregular breaths, as Nancy's bc-dy took over the duty of supplying life and oxygen.
