Wear Dip XXX VI r pHE touch of a hand on her forehead awakened Bea. In the dim light of the fire she made out Fred Sillwell bending over her, with a cautioning finger across his lips. She folded back her covers silently, followed him from the radius of light. Another figure joined them as the> moved cau- Uonsly beyond earshot. "Mollie says George is asleep, Fred explained. *'This'U lie a good time." "Hello, Mollie," Bea said "You've changed sides again?" "Look," Fred cut in. "Let's not go into that. Mollie did us a favor in coming to lell us when George went to sleep. Now both of you shut up until we get done whai we want. Don't forget now- J want that rifle." "I'll get it for you," the gir promised. "I've been frighlene< by that nasty old gun and I'll be glad you have it- I can trust you.' "I know," Sillwell said nastily "Mollie's a good girl. And if Mollie wants to eat her cake and have too, she'd better act change her mind again." The rest of the walk to the cave was completed in silence. Fr« Si 11 well stopped well away from the light of the fire burning one side of the entrance. From within came a thickened but no unmelodious voice singing. *'He was asleep when 1 left, Mollie Stark said. "He wakes up has * few drinks and then goes back to sleep again." "I guess we might as well wa a while since we're here," Fre decided. "Where does he keep th rifle, Mollie?" "By his right hand. The bot tie's by his left. There's a flash light hanging handy near the cav mouth. Just inside. Hell go t sleep again pretty soon. Then he' be sorry because he wouldn't eve give Mollie one teeny snifter. 1 The song broke oft, in the lence, the audience of three ould hear the snuff and snort of he currents pushing and pulling t the swinging rock. •Tie's asleep again," Mollie whis- ered. "Let's go." Sillwell said. "One f you be sure to gel that rifle or me. I'll take care of George ' he wakes up- Tuke it easy gong in. He's as apt as not to be tting there waiting for us. George s tricky." E BASCOMBE lay in the left-hand passage, resting omfort on clean while sand. He lept with & smile on his lips, and his heavy glasses resting on his nose. His right hand was near he rifle and his left clutched the neck of a bottle. "All right," Fred said sharply Get him," Bea Cosgrove lunged forward Somehow she collided with Molie, pushed the girl to an abrup stop against rock. Bea got the rifle while she noticed Fred Sillwell's first grab was for the bottle. 'Give me that! He asked me to get it for himt" Bea heard the hissing voice in her ear, fell the strength of Mollie Stack's hands- They staggered back into the main corridor of the cave, wrestling. Bea swung th rifle by the barrel, sent it skiddinj down smooth stone. For a seconr light from the fire glinted on slee and then the rifle was engulf e by darkness. "Now see what you've clone! Bea said loudly. "You made m drop the rifle and k>s« It com pletely!" Mollie had a small cut oo he forehead. Blood from it made semicircle around her eye m finished a question mark by run ning down her cheek. "1 mac you? You did it! Fred! Fred, si* threw the rifle away!" Sill w* 11 took the bottle from h lip*. He sighed. "That was is fool s\vung back and b« lucked George's face. • * • >ASCOMBE turned as If In hia sleep, took the kick on hi» loulder. Bea Cosgrove stepped in front f his lax body as Sillwell aimed nother kick. She caught his ankle the heel of her foot. 1 abdicate," George said clearly. L renounce mj right* one and all, Deluding the right of succession the throne of Speare Island, ow let me get some sleep." Get up. You're coming with We're all going to stick lo- ether from now on. And after ou' sober up a little you and I're oing to have a little talk." Bea and George followed Fred nd Mollie leisurely. Bea at least oticed the couple were deep m talk. She could not near tht words, so she felt sale to say. You don't have lo pretend to b* o drunk any more." "You see too much." he said at ast. "But 1 suppose you have to lotice things when you're in a fix ike this. But anyhow 1 owe you omeihing for not letting Sillwell tick my face in," "I'd do as much for anyone," lea said. "And I suppose you enow what you're talking about?" "Oh sure. 1 know all right. And I'm glad the silly king business is over. 1 was getting awfully Jeepy, and 1 couldn't trust Mok- ie. I'll be safer with the others." "Safer?" "You bet! 1 won't tell anyone else. But it's easy to kill In cold blood the second time. Or would it be the third? 1 couldn't trust you now. That's why it was smart Tor Nona and me to separate." Bea Cosgrove said, "1 thought you were sober. You know you pulled that king act because you were mad at Nona. You did it, and meant it, to get *ven with her." "I meant what 1 said," George said firmly. "Listen, are you actually trying to say you think I killed LJliy Warren?" He nodded. "Probably the fisherman too. After all, yout gun killed Lilly, didn't it?"
