The Way West (1955)

She knew him when he stepped out, knew him by the thin, clean shadow that he was against the shad owed night, and boldness died in her and her legs trembled to run; and then she thought he'd go about his business before he knew that she was there and she would have to hold still or creep off in the dark and so not shame him with her knowing. She said, "Mr. Mack," and heard her voice as no more than a whis per, drowned by the sh-h-h of the spring. "Mr. Mack."
" What's that? Who is it?" Then, lower-voiced, "Oh, hello."
" It's Mercy McBee."
" I see now. How are you?"
" Mr. Mack?"
He came up to her, not answering. In the cover of the night she let herself search his face, seeing the peaks of his cheeks and the pockets of his eyes in the starshine.
" Mr. Mack?"
" You're up late."
" Don't reckon I could sleep."
" Good night for sleeping."
" Mr. Mack?"
" Yes."
" Could we get away a piece, so's to talk?"
He took her arm without answering and led her out from camp, down toward the steamboat spring. "It has seemed best not to try to see you, Mercy."
" I wouldn't try to see you but-but-"
" What is it?"
" I'm afeard, Mr. Mack. I'm so afeard."
His voice sharpened. "Afraid?"
