He had held her by her. blouse, and nea/ly the whole front of H tore off in his hand as she fell. She whimpered, looked appealingly up at me, then self-consciously drew her skirt 'down to her knees. Herman turned to me, grinning in anticipation. I thought of telling him what Cleo had told me, that'she knew I hadn't killed his brother. I didn't think it would make any difference. Ramie probably knew I hadn't He w'w here with a muscle man to beat me' up and mark me up 90 that everybody would know he had avenged his brother's murder. Continuing to grin, he moved toward me, and Babe Tussig moved in at the same time. 1 took a couple of quick steps back to the* bar, grabbed the bourbon bottle and crashed the neck off on the edge of the bar. I swung the bottle around, spraying whiskey I missed Tussig but 1 got Berman in the eyes. He swore. Momentum , carried Tussig into me as I use< ; the broken neck ol the' bottl«. " In the army they had given n: a sinidge of judo, but I'd taken a post-graduate course" in rough house fighting, growing up in the resort business. When you had a drunken bum to attend to you didn't give him a chance to sta .a free-for-all. You got him the quickest way you could, and if you ruined him, H was too bad. I pretty nearly ruined Babe 'ussig. He screamed and clutched is throat as he reeled backwards. hoped I hadn't cut his jugular ein as I turned toward Herman. He was wiping the .vhiskey out f his reddened eyes. It was too asy, I threw away the bottle. Two fast jabs that Berman took >n the neck stopped him cold. He wung a roundhouse right that ] ,ad to take on my left elbow, bul caught his jaw with a right.hook He was going away and trying to •over up when I got through with another jab. I followed with -a took to his solar plexus that ben' him forward. I lifted an uppercut from the ioor, and h* wen 1 over so hard that his head bouncec !rom the rug.

A push woult fiave floored him, but I turned tc Cleo. She. had pulled herself up She eyed the sleeping Berman am the bleeding Tussig. She shook her head. "Now you're in for H. Kee the blinds drawn at night, Jim mer." Berman stirred. He'got up 6 i elbow. His breathing wa troubling him. He dragged him self to his feet, seeing me out o the corner of his eye but not look Ing at me. "Come on, Cleo, Get going!" Cleo gave, me a look that sni could lake care of herse t was still worried about me Sht went out. Berman followe b\i* !ler her and Tussij moved be- ind Berman. Tussig's sports iirt was soaked from his bleeding eck. An engine raced oulfide nd tires spun in gravel, and they ere gone. I went back and tried the phone gain, wanting to tell Gene Sawer what had happened.- It was point with me to convince my wn lawyer that I wasn't guilty f Charlie Berman's murder. But he phone service was definitely ut off. I thought ol driving back to the il and picking up my stuff. B*Wes, it was in order to go back nd accept congratulations from my fellow inmates and to say oodby. But of the five men in he jail, four were out of town haracters who meant nothing to ne. Only Hal Hover had been an acquaintance, and he was all set 0 be released a minute after midnight. I gave up the idea ot driving back to the jail. The sleepless nights were beginning to tell on me, and 1 dropped onto a davenport. It was nearly 8 when I woke up. * • • T DRESSED and wen, outside. The *- air was warm but pleasant, and :he water was a liquid mirror. Already the neon lights were on at -he resort on Queen Point. My father had been proud of those neon lights. He claimed there was mile.of tubing, and I imagine that H was a great exaggeration, there was a lot of tubing, and [ had hired a neon man just to seep it in repair. I hadn't been on the premises since the Hermans had taken over.- Now that Gene Sawyer told me I was going to get the place back, 1 felt an urge to look it over and see what Charlie and Earnie Ber- man.had done with it. I walked back to the house, passing the sand trap that had alttfost Sent me to the electric chair. Those tell-tale slugs thai had matched the bullets taken from Charlie German's body had been dug from that sand trap. They cashed a check at the filling station where I'd always bought my ga.s, and I parked adjacent to the-resort property.
