The janitor complained: <**Morc blinking chaps all over the place, pretending to be what they ain't-" For some reason it made Gloria remember the new little )anitor this morning. Could he be a cop Loo? As she got out ot the elevator, she was surprised to find a new doorman on duty. "Is Eric on vacation?" Gloria asked him. "No, Ma'am, He's on duty mornings and me evenings." He was rvery tall, bigger than Eric even in the shoulders, with keener, more friendly look about him as he walked with her out onto the ^itlewnlk, saying impulsively as he looked at her white net shopping bag, "If you're going to Fifth Avenue, I saw some de- licipiis-looking pears at Tony's. You're Mrs. Brown.^ aren't you?" "Mrs. Miltiadea Brown," she told him proudly. "Thank you tor telling me. My husband loves pears." It was only later that she remembered she'd forgotten to ask his name. She pattered along, the high heels of her xvhite sandals clicking against the pavement, planning her menu. A loud shrill whistle, the kind small boys achieve with a finger in the mouth, made her jump. "Hi, Handsome!" Sammy came rushing toward her across the av- enue ignoring traffic with terrifying nonchalance. "Next lime,'* she shivered ns he came up, grinning, "wnit for the Hght so I won't hnve a heart attack. Why, Sammy! Are for me? You shouldn't have spent your money." • * • T.1E was holding out lo her in his Xi small grimy hand a twist of once-white paper from which protruded the heads of two wilted, bedraggled carnations, one white and the other pink. "I didn't," he confessed. "There's a guy with a pushcart gives 'em away nights when he can't sell 'cm. They looked good this morning but— ypu're kind'a late today, ain't you?" Before she could answer, a noisy argument broke out on the sidewalk behind them and they lurnod to watch a girl in pink slacks very light across the seat and wearing a sleev-y blouse that hid very little trying lo yank her arm away from the grip of a small man in a gray suit. Gloria recognized the man. It was the little janitor. "Aw, it's only Sal," Sammy said. "She's always gelting coked up and making a fuss and the flatties haul her itu" Flatties. So the little janitor was a cop, Gloria thought. Could he by any chance be the plainclothes, man the lieutenant had sent to follow her? "Leggo my ami," the girl was screaming. She had hair golden on topHand black at the roots. The ofiicer looked down the block at the policeman controlling traffic and then as if suddenly conscious of the gathering crowd and of Gloria and Sammy watching him, he dropped the girl's arm, walked oil, scowling. "You mean," Gloria asked Sammy, horrified, "she lakes drugs?" "It ain't luilhin," Sammy insisted. "She'll sleep it oft." He was almost blubbering and suddenly Gloria knew why; hc'c waited all day to give her his flowers and now his bubble of romance had burst. She put her white-gloved hand up lo touch the carnations, proudly as if they had been green orchids. "This is the very nicest corsage I ever had. I cannot tell you how much it means lo me on this particular day to hnve R boy friend bring me flowers, Sammy," she said sincerely. She'd called him her boy friend! The tide of joy running up burned his neck nrick-red and to hide his embarrassment, he tore out into :he street, yelling happily, "PiuersJ Pipers!" • » • /"^"LOKIA, smiling, went on down VJF the street to Tony's at the very end of the block. It was a nice- looking stand wilh oranges, grapefruit, apples and other fruit arranged in designs on one side, with the vegetables on the other. Tony himself was a hunchback wilh his head twisted on one side, giving on« the queer feeling he could see both before an behind at once, but his brown suit was pressed and his white apron clean. "Pears?" Tony repeated her query. "Sure, 1 gotta da swell pear. Better ones inside. You come see, Mrs. Brown?" How did he know her name? Without waiting for her to answer, he took her arm, prop«litng her inside his shop, behind the high fruit counter. "Stop it!" Gloria gasped. "I'll yell!" She was pushed Into the back room where a woman was standing. "Why, Mrs. BenortU" Gloria gasped. "If you make too much noises, I come back," the hunchback warned.' Scowling at Mra. Behoni, he ordered: "You, Sadie, talk fast and get her out of here. If you were not my cousin's cousin . . . It is dangerous." Mrs. Bcnoni looked terrible; she'd been crying, her usually carefully-kept hair was disheveled, and her eyes looked wild as she grabbed at Gloria's hand. V'You got to help' me!" she begged. "Benny, my husband, is in terrible danger and I have no one but you."
