PART II - THE VOLCANO ERUPTS
CHAPTER 3 - A SHOT IN THE WINDOW

"I'm worried about you," she whispered.
" Don't be silly," I said. "Sleep well, we will see clearer in the morning."
In a few minutes' time I was fast asleep.
A sharp noise woke me. It sounded as though somebody had dropped a glass and stepped on it. It seemed to have happened on the floor near my bed. In a daze I sat up.
" What happened?" I heard Lonci ask in a frightened voice.
I put on the light and looked around in the room. Then I stepped to the window and pulled the drapes aside. There was a small, round hole in the middle of the glass panel. From a distance I heard the noise of a plane.
" Do you see anything?" my wife inquired nervously.
" Nothing at all. It p£obably was the building superintendent or someone on the street who knocked over a garbage can in his enthusiasm."
" That's a relief," she sighed, reassured.
Before turning out the light, I carefully picked up a bullet from the floor and put it in the ashtray next to my bed. Before falling asleep it crossed my mind that this shot was almost like a message, warning me that great things were in the offing, and that I could not hesitate to take my part and do my duty.
Next morning the super's wife came up and told our hostess that, for several months, an AVO officer lived in the apartment across, one floor up. He had left during the night, taking all his things.
By then, the AVO's lot was far from being a happy one.
