XXXI A ZALEA PALMER opened her ^ eyes wide in Martin Queripel's office and sighed as il to herself: "That's the first time in my life I ever fainted. I like it! I think I'll make a habit of it. I've had a perfect rest. Old-fashioned things are the best. And now, I'm a poet!" i Azalea blinked her eyes, seeming suddenly to become aware of the three serious gentlemen, gazing at her knees. Her eyes traveled toward her feet, which Qucri- pel had propped ridiculously on the edge of the office chair in order to cause the blood to flow to her head and bring her out of her fainting spell. She emitted a shrill little scream as she covered her knees and dropped her legs to the Boor. The three gallant gentlemen showed embarrassed expressions for a moment until Azalea, realizing the humor of (he situation, awarded J th'em a forgiving smile. j She refused the' six outstretched : hands from the three gentlemen surrounding her, gathered herself into a mystery of action and was on her feet and int« her chair i again, facing Martin Queripel, the private detective, his assistant, Timothy O'Hca, and the young lawyer, Harley Kenyon. j Her first words to Queripel were: j "Does Paul know all this you've Itold me?" j Queripel shook his head. "Paul I Moody doesn't know," he said. f Now she was ready for hysterics. : She cried: "Why not, in heaven's name? How cruel to keep him waiting! Run, run! Tell him!" "Why don't you go and tell him yourself," Queripel proposed. "Oh, how I'd love to! But he told me he wouldn't let me see him behind the bars.

Ele said he couldn't bear it." Queripel hnd an answer even for this. "If you're going to be the wife of ^that square-jawed sculptor you'd better begin to assert your control over him before it is too late." "That's true! Let's go!" Azalea paused, then asked: "Can I see him if I go to the jail?" » » • JJARLEY KENYON reassured her that she could, and added, "You won't see him behind bars in a cell. I'll have one of the turnkeys drag him to your feet in the conference room." "Come on!" she cried and dashed from the room, the men following after her like the tail of a comet. Queripel was thinking that he would really have to let O'Hea drive his car, since he could not trust his own sleepy and shattered nerves, but Azalea led the way to her own limousine, with the uniformed chauffeur to open the door for them. They piled in and reached the jail, whizzing past traffic policemen too busy making out tickets for minor speedsters to notice their outlaw velocity. After brief delays that were eternities to Azalea,- a guard brought Paul Moody, to .the conference room. The young sculptor came in sullenly, never dreaming that Azalea was to be there. When his cell-weary harrowed eyes met the rainbows and light- nings glowing and gleaming behind her tear-drenched eyelashes, his cry was a mingling of agony and rapture. He rather groaned than laughed as he crushed her in his powerful arms. And she was so blissful and so glad to be so hurt by his too fervent embrace that she cried lierself blind. She tried to tell Paul all that had happened and to tell everything nil at once. So he had not the faintest idea of what she was saying, and had to look over her shoulder to Qnnripcl for Information and interpretation. • When he learned all tlearly, his knees buckled and Azalea had to hold htm up. She said: "Go on and faint! That's what I did! It's wonderful." But he disobeyed her—for perhaps the last time. JJE was ready to rush for his hat and make a dash for .freedom. But Kenyon had to tell him that whole spools ot legal red tape had to be reeled o(I before he could be released from custody. This was almost a more crushing blow than his first miserable entry into jail. But brave Azalea wn« there with the build-up of cheer. She said: "When I realize how the women will mob you and how all the beautiful models will pose for your beautiful sculptures and make me look like a mess in miniature, I think I'll just arrange to have you kept in here for life. Steel bar* will be a comfort, provided I can move in and share your quarters with you. Can you arrange that, Mr. Qucripcl?" "I'll try," lied the very private detective. But Paul Moody was staring at her with a gaze ot adoration that seemed fairly to devour her. He drew her into his arms more tightly and said: "Steel bars? They can be broken. But your little round arms—oh. Azalea! Ouch!" -. . ».' • •-'. 'T'HAT was when she clenched him so tightly that his own ribl hurt. Then their lips met and— The jailer, being a modest man, turned his eyes away. And so did Timothy O'Hea, who had a wife. And so did Harley Kenyon, who could not bear the sight. And so did Martin Queripel. And so, no doubt, will the gcntl* reader.
