You, myself and the young lady. Miss—" he paused, giving Stephanie a look of inquiry. : Stephanie's eyes locked with his as she supplied her name. "Smith." . He bowed. Hagar glanced at Stephanie significantly, then back to Yakov. "You can narrow it lo only two prospective buyers. Stephanie and I are partners." i Arnold PfiefTer had been wrapping the silver box in the small square of tapestry. He slipped it inlo his pocket and was beginning to edge out from behind Hagar, one eye on the front door. t "Just a minute. Arnold!" Nell O'Neill challenged. "Where did you get my cameo?" Arnold, his hand on the doorknob, stood glaring at her: "Don't yell at me! As far as I know, this is Martin Falter's property. If you must know, lie's commissioned me to take it up lo,San Francisco for him." i "You'll do no such thing. That •cameo's mine and I intend to have it." Nell took a step toward Arnold who shrank back against the door. "Give it to me now, and save yourself a lot of trouble." Hagar walked over and confronted Nell, "Look here, how can you expect him to turn over the piece to you after Falter has told him he owns it? The thing to do Falter and settle the right of ownership — then we can start bargaining." When Nell transferred her at- (ention to Hagar. Arnold yanked open the front door. With escape assured, he turned on the rest: "I'm sick and tired of this whole meFS and I'm not going lo get further involved in it I'm going out right now and hand Martin back his wretched old pin. Anri then the pack of, you can start playins hare-and-hounds with him I'm through with the whole thing!" He closed the door behind him. Hagar grinned at Yakov and Nell. "Arnold is the intense, high- strung type." Nell cleni-hed her lists. "That little rabbit! He probably stole my cameo from Martin." Vakov assumed an expression of pleased surprise. "Ahn! Bui think how fortunate we are Nellya! This suddenly brings to your mind where you have left your wonderful cameo — in the safe hands of your good friend Mr. Falter. 1 shall buy it from you for a generous price." "What do you call a generous price?" Hagar asked. Yakov fingered his mustache, "Let us simply say I am prepared to belter any offer you can make Miss Blair." • • • JVOTING that Stephanie had moved over Hagar whirled the window, Nell: "Mrs O'Neill, it looks like you've got yourself a golden goose, doesn't it? And il also looks like Mr Yakov here has got a tight grip on the pinfeathers. - But just for the heck of it. I'll make you an oiler," "How much?" "First things first. Right now you haven't got the cameo. Litlle Arnold may have had a temperamental til and chucked it in Ihe ocean." Stephanie hurried lo Hagar and grasped her arm. "Don't say j tilings like thai! Please!" H^ gave Stephanie a slow win!; Vnkov's eves nicked to Ntll as he marlr- a show of ronsuHine his walrh. "Nellya." he said careless- Iv.

"If Ynkov wants thnl cameo bad fnnuoh ( n ton anv offer I'd make, he must own a remarkable collection And. if he has a collection of that class, whv haven't 1 heard about It?

There is a possibility he minh! be huyini; for someone else, but I have a funny hunch that's not it." shifted around ahsent- mindodly. crossed her feel in a fantastic way and leaned precariously on one elbow: ^ "No. Stephanie." she continued, "I'm convinced he wasn't acting for someone else. Did you notice how excited he was when he first saw the cameo? That sort of, 'Hallelujah! The lost is found!' expression? And right after that, when Arnold snatched the cameo away from him. his eyes the color of steel and practically skewered the poor Mule guy." Stephanie grasped ' Hagar's arm, "Hagar. please, let's not just talk and talk about it. Let's do something before Yakov gels the cameo! lie must riot must not!" Hagar stared interestedly at Ihe fireworks provided by Stephanie's blue .eyes. Today was the first time she'd seen Stephanie's reserve melt away, the first time Ihe girl appeared lo have any fire. "It's important to me, Terribly important." Hagar leaned back against the cabinet. "Suppose you tell me why?"
