Liaison, Pt. 6 of 6. A little later, Jill Rustane finished having her car fueled and drove into the business section of the town. She had recently finished an extended shift at the general store and wanted to relax some place for awhile, but the unseasonable weather greatly alleviated normal nightly activity about the area. She reasoned that she would be too well-noticed in a bar alone and then thought a swim at the "Y" would be ideal. Considering how bad she felt mentally and physically, a pampering by soothing water was exactly what she needed. She drove on a few more minutes to the new exercise center, parked in front of it, and was bewildered by the bleak vacancy around. From her position, lights could be seen inside the building, but the absence of people and a heavy drizzle falling made the night seem eerie, foreboding.
