But I'd rather be dead first! She'j crazy. She'i ermiy. I tell you!" Her voice rose in a kind at scream. Mrs. Malone said quickly: think the bu« H coming." She picked up her suitcase. "You'd better be ready. They hate to wait." She feH a certain embarrassment at having witnessed the hysterical outburst. But she was curious, too— vtrj curious. The black-haired driver (ook a deep puff o< his cigaret, dropped it and ground it into the sand with the tip of his polished shoe.* The bus wax making time. R loomed larger »nd larger, seeming to drink in the long MM river at road. Mrs. Malone stood frrmhr planted, waving her winter root so that its fur-trimmed sleeves flapped like a scarecrow's. Then she could hew the brakes beginning to take h<4d. The engine backfired noisily and the bos stowed to a stop. . "Ot» passenger only. . . . Yow'd better wait Jor the "special.' It'll b» along in half an how," the driver called. : "Oh, dear," fh« vnwng woman : eried, "I can't wait! I want to get away from here! I've rot to!" Mr». Malone was first in line. It wa« her privilege to go. But that meant she would never know. "You go ahead," she said. Til Wftlt here. I'm in no hurry." •Oh, tlwak you!" 'THE young womnn scrambled into the bus. Mrs. Malone could see the other passengers craning at the windows to get a better view of the monster trailer. Some of them were standing up and pointing. But the bus couldn't wait. The door closed and the tires began to turn with a bubbling sound. Rapidly, the bus fled. "That was very nice of you," the uniformed man said. "Why did you do it?" "I thought maybe rd take the job." Mrs. Malone had not intended to go so far. The sudden impulse stemmed from her dread of being alone. Her husband had been an exciting companion—adventurous, brave and good-natured—and this would be her first winter without him. The thought <rf the long, idle months ahead, spent as a sort of paying guest in her sister's house, made her reckless and desperate. "What is there in it?" she asked. "For me, I mean? Is this Mrs. What's-Her-Name really crazy?" "Crazy like a fox." the man said. i. , WM not lan ' *>"< >*« wve the Impression of •eirnt because of ber slcmlcrncss and the liifly heel* she wore. "Come imd meet her. You can see for yourself." Mrs. Malone folded her coat and placed it neatly oo top at her suitcase. She was aware of an accelerated heartbeat as she followed the driver and wailed beside him for the steps to make their mysterious appearance. Then she followed him into the trailer, ducking her head to clear the low doorway. She found herself in a narrow entry, from which a door opened to the left. "Mrs. Kverson? I think I've found another cook for you." ^ FIRST quick glance through the door disclosed a necessarily narrow yet luxurious interior: an impression of silvery walls, hydrangea-blue curtains, sofas or bunks upholstered in gray satin. But Mrs. Malone had no opportunity to observe the details. A woman was sitting tailor-fashion on one of the sofas. Her appearance was so extraordinary that her surroundings seemed unimportant in comparison. She wasn't young, nor was she strictly beautiful. She had, rather, the ageless look achieved by certain famous actresses. Her skin was taut, her contours flawless, her hair abundant and rather dark. She had immense blue eyes and a narrow, painted mouth. Her hands were large, the nails lacquered. Here, as so often happens, she stood revealed as a woman possibly in her 40's. She wore a black crepe dress fastened by a clip jet with diamonds in mounting pl.itmum squares. "How do you do?" she said. Her voice was a cicen alto, un- expected in so slight a woman. "Wher« did you find her, Rudy?" she asked the driver. "Did she drop out of the sky. like a ' frog in a rainstorm? A cook in the middle of the Mojavc! How come?" • • • ATns. MALONE explained quickly. She was not a cook by profession, hut she was willing to try, provided, of course, that too much was not expected of her —fancy desserts, for instance, such as pastries. "1 understand soups, meats and sauces. They say I make the best coffee in California. That's about all . . ." "It will be enough," Mrs. Everson interrupted, "if you're also willing to learn. What's your name?" "Malone." "Molly?" The crimson mnulh smiled' there was a trace of mockery in the eyes. "My name's Margaret." "I'll call you Malone." Mrs. Evcrson unfolded and stood up. She was not tall, but she gave the impression of height because of her slcndcrncss and the lofty heels she wore. Quenching her cigaret in a crystal dish full of half-smoked stubs stained with lipstick, she said: "This Is the situation. As you sec.
