XXVI BBESE, coldly boslile, said nothing in reply to Mr. Pan- Sera's greeting. "I am Paul Paneiera," the man went on ensily. "And you, I'm sure :ire Mr. Reese. Miss Roland has described you so often, it is almost ns if ! know you, Mr. Reese." Tim stayed silent, antagonistic. Tim's antagonism toward Mr. Paneiera was not because ht doubled Jean, or was it because Mr. Panciora had taken credit.for designing the Dress of lh« Year. It was because Mr. Paneiera kept intruding on Tim's dream. Now the man was in Jean's apartment, hehaving as if he belonged there and with the key to the door in his [land. Mr. Paneiera went on: "Jean—Miss Roland will be very happy to see you, I can assure you of that." Mr. Paneiera, wilh the apartment ';ey in his hand, knew Ihe reason for Tim's hostile silence and knew he was facing a critical problem. Now Jciiri, too, was Hearing ruin. If she was found out, they both were lost. The firm of Jean Paul was lost. To /nake things worse, the secret of the designer was out. Indeed, about then Miss Major would be revealing it to Cochet. Cochel would offer this Tim Reese much richer rewards than Tim had ever dreamed of. And Tim would certainly not refuse to do designing for Cochel, especially if he found out about Jean. Paul Paneiera faced »e problem audaciously. "Miss Roland and I usually have ofir morning conference here over coffee. Privacy is practically unknown downstairs, as you can imagine." He held the apartment key up. smiled brightly. "Business .icrmil. me, an old friend and partner, the privilege." Tim relaxed i little. "1 saw you it the Kmpire last night, Mr. Pan- eiera," he said. "You seem to have Quite a time of it taking bowi f or my work. 1 * "It was your evening, of course Yours and Miss Roland's." Mr. Pancicra was as spontaneous as he could be. "If I had kno^n you were in (own, I would have certainly had you on the platform to receive the award. Taking bows is one of my chores. I'm the front here, (a use a cheap but apposite expression. I shall be .very happy to turn the chore over to you from now on." "Thanks." Tim said flatly. "And if you can turn that little gold mannequin over 'to me, too, I'll appreciate it." "Why, of course, Mr. Reese! It's yours, after all." Mr. Panciera was all graciousness. "I'll have it sent to you immediately, if you wish. Or, if you're going to stay in town, I'll fetch it to you." "Fine," Tim said, flatly again. 'I'm over at the Corona, You can send it lo me Ihere." • • • . PANC1KRA, , trifle ill at ease now, looked toward the passageway that led into the rear of the apartment. "Did Miss Roland know you were coming?" He shook his head. "I though! I'd surprise her." "But' she knows you're here?" Mr. Panciera asked quickly. "The maid loir! her, I'm sure." "She is probably preparing a beautiful entrance." He lowered his voice. "She is very fond of you", I suppose you know that. Indeed, she IE very much in love with you." Tim was immediately interested. "How do you know?" "She told me so r and in no un- certain term*. Her positiven«« surprised ine, I must say." Tim softened. "Why?" "You know her, how lovely sh« . Her loveliness makeg her so sublimely self-sufficient, I could never picture her declaring hei need for any man. It was hard foi me to believe she had fallen in love." He smiled his admiration "You are one of our time's great conquerors, Mr. Reese." "It just sort of happened, 1 luess." Tim said, vaguely remembering Midge's words. ' • • • "TJONT underrate yourself, Mr. Reese." Mr. Panciera wae comradely now. "You have genius, youth, good looks. I have always considered your and Miss Roland's meeting one of heaven's nicest inventions. "She certainly IB beautiful," Tim went on. "r.asl night when 1 saw her, I couldn't believe anyone could ever be so beautiful. I felt kind of reverent, I guess that's the way to put it." "Other-worldly is Ihe only way to describe her." Mr. Panciera feeling his problems were beinp solved, was expansive. "Otherworldly." "There's no way to describe her," Tim said. "Perfectly said. Perfectly said." Mr. Paneiera now very much at ease decided it wai lime lo gel down to bread and butter. "By Ihe way, Mr. Reese, 1 suppose you know that Miss Roland and 1 are very anxious to have you aa a member of the firm. Indeed, since meeting you here, I've been entertaining the idea of a three-way partnership—you and Miss Kolani' and I." Tim was amused. "I've been thinking of a firm of my own."
