At the moment, the gentleman was smiling at his own thoughts, which undoubtedly had somethinf; .to do with one of ihe three ladies who were joining him for lunch. Mark was wondering \vhat a pernod would do to Bessy if he told her it was only licorice water. But when they finally arrived nnd he saw Roberta, he decided to po-slpone th. ( : pernod. Kobcrla looked ns if she conkln't cone. He embraced them all in Gallic fashion and compromised on vermoulh cassis.- • After the first drink, he said: "What are you concealing so imperfectly, Roberta?" "Nothing," she answered. "Can't you forget your work for nn hour?", "Not when you look ]ikc this. What happened between the lime you talked lo me this morning nnd now?" . "The girl at the soap counter isn't there," Bessy said. "Her name is Miller, and there's something nasty about il," Boiilnh added. "Miller." Mark closed his eyes for an instant. "Miller. Wait. . . . Is thai the girl who jumped from n window?" There was silence before Roberta said, "I don't know ... Is that what she did?" Mark snid, "If her first name was Ruth, it is." * t * '"THEM she fold him all she knew, A Urioring the food he had or- dcri-'.; until Uculah put a fork in hand nnd Bessy buttered i (if bread.
