Said the Indian, pouring some turpentine on his hands and beginning the rubdown. “Yes, I do. Later, when his dogs can’t find your scent anywhere He’ll circle, and finally he’ll get down to the road and see everyone’s footprints, and the spot where the truck turned around. Then he’ll guess what happened. ” The rubdown finished, Jagger was lifted from the truck, carried into the cottage and placed carefully beside the hearth, where a fire still smoldered. The Indian went back outside, and Jagger peered curiously about at the neat room with its handmade furniture and the floor-to-ceiling shelves crammed with books.

Jagger shook his head. No! he urged. Don’t go outside now. Death is out there. It is watching for us. That was the only way he could put it. For his mind had touched a blackness near the cottage, a swirling, raging blackness, demented and senseless—and utterly and completely deadly. In all his life he had never encountered anything like it. Yet he knew that it came from a living creature, and that he must prevent Danta Rush from going outside. The bronze man was almost at the door when Jagger forced himself upright.
