He wore a thin white sweatshirt under his apron his powerful apd,hairy_ arms were bare; a strapped witch accentuated his lean wrist; his nails were short, well cared fbK healthy. He lifted his cup of steaming coffee with both hands and something in the gesture rang anothe b*ll in Mrs. Malone's memory. "Wail!" she cried aloud. "I'm remembering! A movie a long tim- ago . . ." "You're getting warmer," Rud interrupted harshly. "But what d you say we drop the subject?" "That's fin* with me. But I d want the truth about my bow After all, I'd like lo know wher I'm Roing. And why- IT there anything crooked about this dea I'd better know it; I've told yo all about myself. Now just ex actly who is this Mrs. Ever son and who's the foreign gentl&ma with th« bracelet? And why th million dollar outfit?" Rudy and Victor exchanged glance. The look mi£ht hav meant anything. "I can tell you the story." Rudy *e:an. And then hesitated, **I*m all ears." Mrs. Malone said • • • '"\7~OU don't, have to believe -"- anything \ tell you." Rudy on tinned "I'll give it to you ind you can take It or Ele nibbed his head reflectively "To go back a ways: Mrs. Everon wasn't always rich. She start- d out as a waitress in Oklahoma nd married a man much older n herself. I figure she had her ye on some oil leares he held. nvwav his wells rame in." "Lucky, wasn't she?" Rudy shook his head, "No. She wasn't. They moved West and btiill a little house on op of a hill near Los Angeles Pappy was a millionaire, all right. ut he turned out to be ignorant lealous and tight as the lickens. She did all her ouseworJc, made her own clothes, never went anywhere. But she ilayed with it. Twenty years I juess she figured he'd die first, ind then she'd have her fling." "That's what 1 call a smart woman," Mrs. NTnlone said. "IE you like them smart. I don't." 'You've got to hand it lo her She was patient and faithful- She never let on she was unhappy. and sh'e kept herself young. Not so bad 1 . Then the old man died oft —that was three years ago—and left her his millions." "It wasn't in the papers." "No. She didn't want publicity She was after position. A real place in the social sun- I know, because I was one ol her first em- ployes. I answered an ad in the paper, and here J am: driver, mechanic, bodyguard and father confessor to a rich dame. Mrs. Malone inclined her head toward the Filipino. "And Victor?*' ^She itole Victor from a cock- tafl bar in Beverly Hills. The perfect hnusehoy Unattached Needs no sleep. Crave* no personal satisfaction." • • • TT was on the lip of her tonjnie - to ask: "How come h* talks like a professor?" But she checked lerself She must have made some sign. however, because Rudy smiled, a bit derisively she thought. I know what you're thinking," he said "Tell the lady. Victor You graduated from Columbia, didn't you?" "Yes. 1 did." Victor said. "That explains It." said Mrs Malone. "But why do you work as a houseboy—surely you have enough education to do something more?" > "11 is not bad work," explained Victor. "The pay is excellent." '*Some day. when he has collected his stake." Rudy continued, "he'll go back home, he doesn't care much what he does or where he goes - -" Mrs. Malone met hi squarely "H happens 1 do care, are we going?" He hesitated he cofTee in his cup, creating mall vortex of bubbles. "The story is," he said at last. 'we're on our way to a place of safety." "I don't gel you," she said.
