Andrey Yakov strolled into the next room, closing Ihe door quietly. Martin Faller's bedroom was quite different from the outer one. Most significant was the fastidious order here. The low, wide couch-bed with its heavy linen spread and bolstered pillows, smooth and precise. A handsome desk clock set in pigskin registered the lime. 4:35. Beside the clock was a letter. Yakov picked it up and looked at the San Francisco postmark. In Ihe upper left corner he saw/ a small engraved crest above the address of a well-known art dealer. Slipping the letter from the envelope, Yakov began to read. Halfway down the page, he gave a surprised grunt — his eyes raced through the remainder of the letter. Hurriedly, he returned the paper to the envelope and placed it where he had found it. His attitude had abruptly changed, his. next movements were quick and smooth like those of a hunting cat. But he was gazing out the window, apparently in idle contemplation, when Nell opened the door. • » • J-JE turned to her, smiling, "The delicate colors of the western ocean at sunset, I shall never tire oJ them." He turned and continued talking casually: "I look forward to seeing Miss Blair's cameo collection. * It may be that we can negotiate an exchange of pieces, perhaps she has something that-will ease my disappointment concerning your wonderful cameo." Nell's eyes focused on his face "You'll see my cameo." . "Aha! You have then remembered where it is?" < "Yes. Yes, 1 have remembered." He looked at her Intently, folding his lower lip between thumb and forefinger: "Then, perhaps, if it should be the piece I am look- ins; for, you will consent to sell it?" "Perhaps." Yakov's eyes narrowed, but he was still smiling as he said: "it would be to your advantage—in many ways." As they left the bedroom, .Yakov looked around for Tom: "Your husband? He is waiting outside?" Nell's lips tightened: "No. He's down at Bob's, drinking again." Yakov looked concerned. "A pity." They had closed Martin's front door and were descending the steps when tNell stopped abruptly. She gripped Yakov's i arm and poinled down the hill to the corner on the opposite side of the street He saw the figure of Tom O'Neill. Standing opposite him, feet apart, .in a careless attitude, was a tall man. Nell exploded. "He's got hold of Martin. No telling what he'll say to him." Yakov. noting the creases of worry and'annoyance, around her large blue eyes, suggested soothingly: "Perhaps he will tell our friend Martin Falter that we are here seeking his company." Nell, staring intently down the hill, did not answer. As she walched, Martin turned from Tom as though to start up the hill. Tom follosved and grabbed Martin's arm, the two men faced each other once more and seemed to be arguing. Martin turned his face toward the top of the hill and lifled a hanrt in salute. He gave no further sign of recognition, however. "Do we go in pursuit?" Antlrey Yakov asked with a half-smile. "No!" she answered with suppressed fury: "It would only Rivo Tom a chance to make a big scene. We'll go on to Ilagar Blair's." • • • , j\JELL kept sitent as they drove to the Three Wishes Shop. She was reviewing, bitterly, the many other occasions when Tom had made an ugly Issue of cerlain friendships of hers. She cringed inwardly as she recalled the Insh- ings he'd given her with that fiendish tongue of his. AJwjjys, during [heir violent quarrels, he'd bring up her former career, taunting her with his favorite epithet "stag party prima donna." She'd been serious about her dancing, had tried to be artistic about it. She might have made something of herself, if she hadn't given up her career to marry Tom. At thai time, however, marrying rich Tom O'Neill hadn't seemed a bad idea. She needed money desperately at tile time they met and had sold him the cameo, weeping pathetically and telling him it was i urecious family heirloom. Tom had wept into his champagne and had given her a large sum for the brooch. Then, on their wedding day. he'd made a great ceremonj of giving it back. He told her it had been a lifelong ambition to install a beautiful wife in a cozy studio home and live out his life among sympathetic creative friends. He qualified himselt for this group by calling himself a "ceramist." Once she had hoped to persuade Tom to give up Dolorosa. But right at the crucial moment, one of his miserable clay pots'had won a minor prize at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts. He had conducted a three-day celebration and had vowed to dedicate the rest of his days to "his art." In Dolorbsa! So now the caineo was her only means of escape. Provided it turned out to be the rare piece Yakov was looking for. And, provided she could get it back, somehow, from Martin Falter.
