Memphis, Channel 5 JLITDGE iIA xxxrv * BURNETT stood In the doorway looking at me. "Who ehecks you out around here?" "There's nobody to check you out," I said. "Nobody's in charge You'll have to wait till the courts iljjicdde who's the owner." v ' ". "Sav« the jokes—I'm not doing •ny liiughing today." ' There was a fl :rry o[ voices out/«l(!e. I gl.inced back through the ••Window. A taxi was'unloading at .the driveway~E(.die and Roslyn .were back homo. Eddie was =et- tting a large-scale welcome. Boslyn •hovered close to him, fierce-eyed :and protecting. Eddie's turban ibandage was gone—there was only :» small white patch above his ilorehead at the hairline. f "Say!" I spun around at Midge • Come here, qulckl" I rushed lo ,the tool rack; pulled out an ax pnd Hushed it at her hands. j "Do me a /avor. It's very im- rportant. Sock me." t pointed lo |the front of my head. "With the .blunt end." I'ls^ this supposed to be funny?" L-J " "" Uer "I life and death, jMidgc. Believe me—believe me .this once. The police — they're rooming—I've got to be found lying ihore. Do what I ask you—BO 1 a head." • s "I think you've gone batty" I grabbed her shoulders. "You've |got to do it, Midge. It's the only .thing that II save me. They think |I did it. If t; 1C y find me lyin = here—I'll explain it aU to you later." I forced th ax into her (hands. "It's the only way—believe ^uic. iMidi»e. Swing, please" I VJwinted to the front of my head Tagairi. ; "If you really mean it ... I'll •hit you easy. Turn around."' ^ "ft'o, hit me in front." J She shook her head. "I—I couldn't in front." , "What's the difference, for Pete's sake!" : "I might miss and hit your face." "Gtaai!" I slapped my hands to- Bjr Joseph ShaKt gether. "Great!" I took the ax from her and pu.. it back in the rack. Midge's gray-green eyes almost exploded. "Were you 1 kidding me you—?" She lunged through the doorway. * • • T CAUOHT her arm,and pulled her back. "You little dope, you've just done something very important. I wanted to know whether a woman would hit a man—her husband—on the forehead If he asked her lo." "Why on earth do you want to know that?" I'll tell you in a minute. But you couldn't imnjjine 3'oursclf doing that, could you?" "You'mean if I loved the man?" "Right." "I've changed my mind. Give me back the ax." "Sure. I'll give it back to you But first I want to tell you something." I took holr" of both her arms. They were smooth, soft, pleasant things to grip. I held on. "I want to get acquainted with you. Midge—take a walk with you—iotd your hand when you're not looking—find out your middle, and whether you like blueberries or Strauss waltzes or men with straight hair." I was holding her close now, and she wasn't fighting rne. And noxv I was kissing her. Somebody was in the doorway. "Hate to bust into the heavy scene," said Ilos yn Fields. "Just give me our mail and you, can take up where you left off." 1 floundered ou. to the mail page. I look four letters out of . Eddie's slot. Automatically, I dealt them on the counter one by one lo make sure Ihcr- was no mistake. One caught my eye yellow envelope with sepia imprint: ."Bart Jamison, Empire State Building." Bart Jamison. The high-powered Iheatrical press agent. "Say—say—" I said, somewhat , "I'm coining over u>.uik| to Eddie—I want to talk to Eddie.' "He's gone [or a walk," Roslyn snapped. "He needs to relax. Don'1 bother him." • • • J WANDERED back Into the-office. New thoughts were raising a rumpus in my. head. Midgl stood there, calm and assured, holding a handkerchief. Businesslike, she took hold of me and cleaned the lipstick off my mouth. "Now explain about the skul! socking," she said firmly. "Skull socking?" I sat down at the desk. "I'll iell you. I thoTigbt Roslyn Fields was the one who hit Eddie. Now I know 'different. You helped me see it. She couldn't have hit him like that." And in that moment, I had It. "Listcnl I've ot it. Don't open your mouth. I've got it." l started walking around the room. "A! caught Eddie in here. That was it. Ktlrfie was monkeying with the safe. There wasn't any business meeting—Eddie was here by himself, gelling into the sate. You sec? Eddie needs money—he needs it lo break into big-time show business—his wile wants that, so bad, it's been driving him nuts." I kept pacing, -cling the desk. "Eddie made the tie-up with Rocky Silone. Sure, I know Eddie turned him down while you were there, but he must have gone back and seen Rocky later. A chance to make big dough in a hurry? It's what he'd been dreaming about. Eddie found out a way to get wto the safe and started switching the phony money (or good. But then Rocky got murdered and the deal was over, except lhat Al moved Ihe body, and Eddie saw a chance lo make up his deficil al one crack by means of a liltle blackmail. You see, he was too close to the thing, too obvious, for Al lo really suspecl him. When A! and I went out to pay oft the blackmailer, Eddie tjok advantage of the lime to swilch Ihe phony money he slill had left, but we came back too soon and Eddie had to beat It. So Eddie tried again late c'. nlghl, aflcr Ihe dance, probably after he saw Al go to his collage. Bui Al came back. Maybe he remembered he hadn't changed Ihe combination, the way i told him to."
