"The Father of Waters"
THE frightened mare swerved and
reared perilously near the edge of the
road. Choked with rage, I rugged
at the reins, keeping my eyes on Somers.
There seemed no escape, and I couldn't
even curse. I opened my'mouth to shout;
but the sudden rush of blood to my head
caused a warm trickle in the very center
of my forehead.
Somers instantly perceived it. It
seemed to stagger him, for my eyes never
left his face as I struggled with the reins.
His imagination thoroughly tricked him.
Slowly, with an expression of horror, ho
backed away into the darkness, still cover
ing me uncertainly with his revolver but
not daring to fire again. Then to my
ears there came another sound from up
the valley, the ringing of the tonga horn.
