[TJREAKFAST morning, I XXXII over th« next was still feeling (& queasy about the letdown I'd gotten from Dava Fields, but everything around High Hill had a strong urge to get back to normal. \ The dining room waiters were planning a water carnival, some girls were getting up a bicycle outing. But I sat beside AJ Kemmer's desk and stared at his chair And it was as it In a dream that Kitty Lane appeared and silently moved to his chair aQd sat down in it. "First thing, I want to go over the financial records," she said. "Where are the bank statements and things like that?" I stood up, I walked around, prodding my brain into motion. There was something wrong about all this. Weren't niere formalities that had to happen first—probate, court order! But I knew ; phone number that would give me a quick answer to all thaL "Excuse me, Kitty, I'll be back in a couple of minutes," 1 said. I walked across lo the rec hall and went upstairs to Ihe .jhone booth. I put in a long distance call to Alex Craige, an old high school classmate of mine who had become a well-heeled Philadelphia lawyer. His high, excitable voice splattered a greeting into my ear. "Some free legal advice, if you -have a moment," I said. "Shoot, chisclcr." "Is there such a thing as an oral will?" "There is. / noncupative will.' "Wlia.'s that mean?" "It's not written down." Lawyers have to talk technical even when they're not getting paid lor iL "I'll tell you Ihe siluatlon. A man--call him M>'- A—is critically injured. He's oevtt «ud« «ut • will. Just before he dies', he tells Mr. B he wants the estate to go some third party. Now, what do you have to do to make that legal?" "Is anybody present beside Mr. B?" "No." "For • noncupative will to be valid, there have to be two witnesses. Furthermore, the amount of the bequest can't exceed $500. At least, that's the law in this slate." "Then who gets the man's property if those conditions aren't met, and there aren't any known relatives?" "The good old Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, son." TriTTY greeted me with 9 frown. "How do you open this safe?" "Search me," I said. "There must be a note of the combination somewhere." I watched Kitty prowl around the room. I watched her lithe, fi rm I y mil scled arms. Yes t ah e could have handled that ax, I thought Al's behavior, the hints that he'd like to Junk her, could easily have been enough to set her ofl. She would have brooded and fumed, and halfway through the night, she might have charged out of her room and hunted him down and bashed him — hitting Kddie to gel him out of the way, or just accidentally. ... A hand slammed Ihe desk. "Are you going to pay any attention to me? 1 * Kilty yelped. *;Do you want me to start my first day by firing you?" It was too much. "You might word-of-mouth will woa't stanc up." "You don T t know what you'n talking about)" "Okay, wait till you get it officially.** "Get out of here." "Don't be silly. I just explained you're not boss , nround here. 3 hink it'd be a better idea if you jot out yourself — you're only messing things up. Why don't you o to your room and rest it off?" Abruptly her face weakened 'art by part gave way—even hei engraved eyebrows got & crumpled ook. She lifted herself out of the chair. "I'll fix you for this." I went to the side window and watched her go across the cinder* .oward Chicken Alley. A question hammered at me: If £itty had slugged AJ, would he lave tried to leave her his dough n his dying moments? And there was another question. A touchier one. A question that seemed to have been poking at me for some time without my pay- ng attention: Why had it taken Eddie so long lo report what Al had said? It was a funny thing. Eddie hadn't said a word about it when Kealey quizzed him the night ot beating. T SNATCHED the phouc off th« window sill and called the is- pital. Mr. and Mrs, Fields had already left, the reception clerk said. "This is Sergeant Morrison— H I said, "special investigator. State Police. I want you lo look at your visitors' record." "You mean the sign-In she«t, sir?" * "That's right,* I snapped, "Yesterday's. Tell me the names of any visitors Mr. Fields had before 2 p. m." "Oh, none, sir — vlsUing hours start at 2." "1 know that. Wasn't there anybody before that?" as well hear it now as later, You're not the owner of this place, You're not Inheriting a thing—nol the fu?-7. on I'te grass/ I wailed for the explosion.
