But I will, believe me, i will. Only, please, let's get it before someone else carries it invay!" ; Hagar couMn'l resist the urge to pry a bit more. "You realize, don't you, my girl, that you're trying to talk me into spending my olrf-age security money on this thing and then wait around for you to pay me back at about 55 per week? And for why?" Stephanie pressed her hands to her face and began to sob. Hagar placed An awkwatd hand on Stephanie's shoulder, "Now, now," she said gruffly, "let's not drown ourselves. If it means that much to you, we can probably figure out something. First things first, though. You go get a handkerchief and mop up." As Stephanie stumbled toward the rear of the shop, Hagar started the closing up chores. "I'd be a perdition liar if I didn't admit I'm enjoying the whole thing. Stolen jewels, a chase, everything but a murder. Well, if we can gel away with it, 1 Ihink f have a plan that will out-fox everybody and put that Giovanni delle Corniole cameo right smack in the middle of my collection. Until,you can buy it. of course. Are you through mopping up?" Hagar went'to the back room. In Ihe small, makeshift silting room behind the stock shelves, she found Stephanie curled up in one of the ballcrcd old armchairs, smoking a cigaret and looked surprisingly calm and poised once again. Hagar flopped into a chair opposile her. "Well," she began, "the thing lo do firsl is gel hold of Falter. I've idea lhat Nell O'Ncill can't prove her ownership of the cameo, nor can he. I definitely smell a large mouse. Bui, if Yakov's going to lake a chance on buying it, I can at least make a couple of passes in thai direction mysel/ and see what happens. "One Ihing 1 do know," she went on. "the cameo has riot been reported missing or slolen by anyone. I'd be bound lo hear aboul anything like that. So, we'll have lo assume that cither Nell or Faller are Ihe legal owners. Anolher Ihing, I'm convinced now llial Faller didn't steal the Ihing from Nell—she'd have accused him. 1 Ihink she gave it to him for reasons of her own. And 1 think she's probably planning to get around him some way to..get il back. But if I know lhat old deadbeat, Falter, she's got a job cul out for her." • * • " JLj'AGAR grinned at Stephanie. L± "Here's another angle: If Nell did give the cameo to Falter, how's she going to'explain it to Tom, her husband, if Falter should slarl to stir up a stink?" ' Stephanie looked da^cd. "I can'l quite understand what you're planning, Hagar. All 1 can think of is, what will happen if Ynkov gels the cameo before we do?" Hagar mashed out her cigaret and stood lip. "I'll lell you what I'm going to do right now: I'm going to pul on my coal, hop in my car and hunt up Falter. He ollered me the cameo for S12.000, and I'm going lo see what will happen if 1 lell him 'yes' on Ihe deal. Maybe I'm a senile old turkey to think of spending thai muc-h cash, inn you cun'l lake n with you, as the man said." Hagar shrugged into an enormous lopcoal and belted il snugly, "Do you want to come along, Stephanie?" Stephanie looked up, al last. "No, Hagar," she was saying. "I'll stay here and hope." "Well, 1 must say you don'l look very hopeiul right now—" "It's probably loo lale." Hagar stared, then, with impatient gestures, sho began to pull on a pair of shabby pigskin gloves. "Thai's neurotic," she told Stephanie. "I( you lie around mooning aboul somebody else getting hold of your cameo, they probably will." All at once Stephanie's eye began to blaze again with Ihe blue lire. She sprang oul of her chair and slood before Hagar with her fists clenched: "They won'L It can'l happen! I've wailed too long!" • • * T.IAGAR watched the girl's face xi admiringly. The tight, beautiful muscles o( her arched neck, the raised bosom, the slraighl-as- a-die shoulders. "Now, now," Hagar soothed ab- scnlmindcdly. "I'll go hunt out Falter and see what's up. Who knows, maybe by this time tomorrow we'll have our little cameo. Meanwhile, lei's be practical. While I'm gone, why don't you run up to the house and put thai pot of slew on the stove? We've got lo keep up our strength if we're going to be pushing and hauling wilh Nell O'Neill and Falter, lo say nothing aboul lhat Russian heavy." She waved her car key and moved toward the door, "1 may be late getting back —depends on whether Fallcr's at home or abroad, [f I'm not there in a couple of hours, you go ahead and eat. Adios!" Hagar fell in excellent, fettle as she slipped through Ihe shop's front door, wulkcj down Ihe street and got in her toy-sized red car. There, right where she might have sat upon il, was the silver box, the box belonging lo the car- ncliitn cameo. It was open. And empty.
