Thunderhead (Continued From Preceding rage) matter with Brett? He wasn't very polite." "Ah, well, he is not such a friend of mine. I did not lend him some money once when he needed it. Perhaps he will not forgive me." "Miguel," she said, "did they really say that fire was caused by an avia tor s cigaret?" When he told her that was what everyone believed, her heart seemed to turn cold, and she said, knowing the answer, 'Who would it be? Who was up there?" "I think the new man. Stearne Is his name? He was up there when the fire started, and he might have been careless!" "Oh, no! No, he didn't!" Lesley cried, "I know he didn't." But she didn't know. She only knew how Jimmie had acted when he returned from the fire! Oh, poor Jimmie! She was his only friend, and she was doubting him! Del Santo stared at her flushed and earnest face searchlngly. 'Do you know this man very well, that you are so frightened for him?" For the first time, she had a sen sation of dislike, for the suave coolness that never deserted Del Santo, She said hotly, "I do know him, and I'm sure that he wouldn't be stupid enough to light a cigarette in a place like this." "You are probably right," Del Santo agreed smoothly. "Well, whoever It is, it is amazing to me that Mr. Haw- ley has kept his little enterprise going for two years. With the sort of men he gets down here to fly for him." Lesley slipped off her horse sud denly. 'We're Just a few steps from your stable, Miguel. I wonder If you'll take my horse in, please. I'd like to walk the rest of the way to the airport. If you don't mind." "But of course, if you wish It." His face was perfectly unreadable as he took her reins, then took off his hat to her. "Although I can have you driven home easily." She thanked him and walked off down the road. He was standing right at his gate, holding the two horses, but he didn't go inside. She could feel him watching her until she turned a bend in the road. Jerry Barker was coming out of one of the hangers when she arrived. She waved and he came over. His hair was blowing wildly in his face. "How's your hurricane insurance, honey?" he grinned. "This is going to be a swell night to stay home and knit." Lesley looked up at the orange and brown sky. It was darkening swiftly and the black clouds were pouring over Cuyajara. As she looked around, she noticed a tall, strikingly beauti ful dark girl in riding clothes. She was standing on the edge of the field, watching the sky and the activity around the hangar. Lesley had never seen her before and she asked Jerry who the girl was. He looked at her and clicked nil tongue twice In appreciation. "She'i my Idea of what all Venezuelan dames should look like . . . but don't. That's Estella Vargos; the coffee baron's secretary."
