A*- n T> ASIL WILLING turned. A man stood nearby, tall, muscular and hardy. His rather full lips were smiling. His blue eyes were alert and amused. "I've been looking forward to this meeting for a long time," he said cordially. "You know me?" "By a simple process of elim- fciation:^all the others .are here." The man was still smiling. "Of course, I know you by reputation and . . . Will you excuse me , moment? 1 see my sister is grow' ling impatient." * | "But . . ." Basil was left alone. I A woman's voice spoke at h: lelbow imperiously. "I've been ei jpecting you for the last half hour." ! She sat in a wing chair close to jthe smouldering fire. Her hair was jwhite; her eyes, deep-set in discol- jored sockets; her moirlh, drawn k>nly the eyes themselves—-large, [dark, lustrous—hinted at what she jmight have been in her youth. One ihand held an ebony stick with an ;ivory handle. "I think you've made a mistake," ; began Basil. • "Mistake?" She was displeased 'Veins as violet as her dress stooc .out like earthworms coiled under the skin of the hand (hat clenche< the stick. "Your voice is dillercni tonight. Not at all the way i usually sounds " "And I'm f\,rt I look different too," said Basil. Again sh« interrupted "Are you laughing at me, sir? You Know 1 am blind." • * • '' T} ASIL Iooked at hcT eyes. For the first time he saw that the pupils were grsy wilh cataract. "I beg your pardc:,. I didn't realize." "That I'm totally blind? It doesn't matter." Her voice sank almost to a whisper, -"I hear someone coming. They're always watching. Leave me at once, please!" It was impossible to resist the desperate urgency in her voice. Basil moved toward the other end of the room and lit a cigaret, looking about for the little mnn wilh the air of someone searching an ash tray. "Why, Basil Willing! To think of meeting you here!" He turned. The face was pure eighteenth century — arching brows, provoking eyes, flaring nostrils and demure mouth, all fashioned on such a fine scale and with such a flawless tex(ure that It was porcelain to the earthenware of the other faces. Her hair was the ripe, dark gold of autumnal wheat She wore it brushed away from brow and ear, fr« ami floating. Her shoulders were dazzling while above the den»e black at * sleeve- Y«i don't remember met N« matterr Soft lavjrhter under lined her ww4«. "We we an mppoaed fc* know each »Ui«-. w less gown. "You dont remember me? No matter!" Soft laughter underlined her next words. -*We are all supposed other!" I GAIN the tone implied a double meaning that escaped him. Something seemed to stir in that part of memory below the threshold of consciousness, but be couldn't bring it to the surface. "Why shouldn't I be here?" 'Well. I've always associated you with the other side of the fence." "What fence, Rosamund?" She was serious now. "So you do remember me'" iged and rather plump, with an mxious manner. I ;an't tell you .._ .iis name because 1 don't know it to know each myself. Has he been here?" "No." It was Rosamund's turn ' be pti77.1ed. "Only the people "Who could Finlay?" forget Rosamund 'Yet we met only a few times. Before the war. wasn't it? So much has happened since. For one thing, I'm no longer Rosamund Finlay." "You're married?" He was surprised. At 18 Rosamund Finlay had taken the small world of fashion by storm. Newspapers and magazines carried her fame outside that world until she became a popular symbol of beauty, gaiety and elegance. "Yes, I'm married." Rosamund hesitated. "There's my husband. You know him? Thereon Yorke." She looked toward the other end of the room, at a slout, gray-haired man twice her age who stood before the fire with one hand on the while' marble mantelpiece. "I've heard of him," said Basil. Thereon Yorke belonged to another world. During the twenties he had owned the most discreet speakeasy in Manhattan. No trouble with police. No hint of the sordid or brutal. His artless pa- Irons had never believed the stories about his relations with the underworld. He kept those patrons after Repeal. The speakeasy became a night club—the sort where there is no floor show and the food is as good as Ihe wine. But why had Rosamund Thereon Yorke? Finlay married IJASIL smiled. "I'm looking for someone I expected to nnd here this evening and I don't see him. lie'* a ktU* -Then have to ask you to. - -- , excuse me while I explain to my host," *l>r. Zimmer* Defter not interrupt him while he's talking to MM» Basil down room. The man who _^.- comed him was approaching the blind woman still beside the fire "Miss Shaw?" "Don't you know her?" Rosamund was disconcerted. "I thought she spoke to you when you came in." "She mistook me for someom else," said Basil. "I didn't ever know her name." "She is Katberine Shaw," explained Rosamund. "Very old very lame, very blind and Ten rich. The man behind her is hei nephew, Brinsley Shaw. The woman in gray oo the other aide is her companion, a Miss Dean. I daresay you know all the others." "Yours is the only familiar face." •Then I'll be your cicerone. The sickly looking man by the piano is Stephen Lawrence." The poet?" "I believe he docs write verse. The pale girl beside him fe his daughter. Pcnlita. The frivolous little woman in black lace is our host's sister. Mrs. Mann." 'And the couple silting near the hall curtain?" prompted Basil. "Some people named Canning from some place like Roslyn or Ivarchmont.** TPHE little man was not in the room. Basil saw the butler appear In the doorway. "Yes. Otto?" Dr. Zimmer asked. Beyond Otto, hesitant and/jwk- ward. stood the small plump figure Basil would never forget— hands fidgeting, eyes restless and uneasy. There was a sudden hush as Olio announced slowly and clearly: "Dr. Basil Willing." (T« Be Television- Tonite, Tomorrow \VMCT, Memphis.
