XV11 CLOIVLY she got to her feet Her heart was beating heavily She moved oul of the closet, uno the bedroom. Someone had taken the can of wax. WHY? . On n sudden impulse she turned to the closet again, to look once more, to make absolutely certain she had not oeen mistaken. But her search svas fruitless. The can of wax wasn't there. She wondered what to do. There must be something she should do, some proper procedure she should follow. A few questions to the maids, perhaps, to lind out who had been m her room this morning? Quiet Questions that might tell her who lind had the opportunity to lake the can of wax. Bui she realized almost at once that would be tutile. Every member o£ the household had been in and out of the room last night. As for the maids—well she could ask them if they had taken it. Maybe they had—maybe Susan had found the closet door standing open and seen the can of wax and returned it to the back hall broom closet where it belonRed. She drew a long unsteady orealh and wem to ihe oack nail. She ! opened tne oroom closci. The jcloset was crowded but neat: there wns a vacuum. brooms atiij .brushes and mops. uncl. standing against the wall on ihe shell above, cans ol cleaner and wax :ma furnilurr oolish. There was a can ol floor wax on the shelf and !/U>n stretched to reach it. She ,brought it down and tugged al the lid with cold Hrmers. The lid came ofl and she looked Inside. She ( wax was more than naif used up. -This was not the can ot wax that (had been in her closet, • • • I CHE went hack to her room. She r- 1 held herself under rigid control. She tried to think. Tried to marshal her forces. Her shoes! Of course The shoes I were still in her closet, in tlieir original oo.v. She hadn't touched Ihem since yesterday afternoon when she d ntii them on to go lo the club for lunch. The wax would still be on the soles of her slices. She went Into the closet and gol the box. She carried it oul into the bedroom, crossed to the chaise longue and SRI down. She took Ihe lid from the box, lifted the tissue from the shoes. The shoes were placed in the box ns shoes ordinarily are, turned inward, the oows face to face. Gingerly she lifted them oul. turned them over, looked at the soles. There wasn't any wnx on the soles. None at all. Unbelievingly she scratched the leather surface wilh her fingernail, but there wai nothing there. No wax at all nor any trace of wax. The fear crept insidiously into her body, chilling her. It was one thing to be afraid someone was deliberately planning your murder—but it was something else again to wonder if you were—if you were— •She fell rather tlian saw someone watching ner She looked up. Laurie was slanding in lilt doorway "for heaven's sake. Ann," Laurie said almost aucrulously. "What arc you cJuing? We've wen .wailing downstair; and Rinda's pjomj! 10 miss ner train. What are you doing willl your shoes?" Ann said. "Oh. Oh, yes 1— J'm sorry. 1 didn't mean 10 ucep you waning, " "Rmda said you wanlcd to send a package into town," Laurie said. "Whore is it?" "Well. II was the— the shoes," Ann said, wondering cra/ily now long Laurie liad oeen standing In Hi? doorway, watching ner. "You know 1 told YOU they hurt me. 1 thought maybe I'd return them." "Well, then, give them nere. Hindu doesn't mind returning Ihem?" "It's probably horrible of me to ask hei but she will be downtown and I've had them a week." "All right. I'll uive them lo her. Are Tommy and 1 supposed to pick up Hie groceries?" "It you will." Laurie icft (he shoe box under her arm. and Ann wnk bm-K in the chaise. She felt exhausted, depleted. drained of emotion. The can of wax had vanished mysteriously and now the shoet were gone. But she hadn't been able to think ot anything else to say when she'd looked up and found I>aurle watching her Irom the doorway. If Laurie had been there more than a lew seconds she'd seen Ann examining the shoes, looking for traces ol Ihe wnx she knew had been there yeslerday. If Laurie had put the wax on the shoes— except that she didn't dare think a thought like that! Then she reminded herself pililessly that she could not exclude Laurie. Not yet. Laurie had the same opportunities as had the others; Laurie had possibly a stronger motive because Ann controlled Laurie's inheritance. But it didn't bcur tlilnlclng ot. Madness lay in thai direction.
