IX THE old iron-studded door^ of •*• Bob's Place was a familiar and welcome sight to the bibulous of Dolorosa. Bob claimed he had stolen it from a Spanish monastery in the Pyrenees during bis voliinlary military service in Spam's civil war. The story of bow be got it out of the Pyrenees and into California was a 1ale which became more astounding and dramatic with each retelling: He had lost his left arm in that adventure. Bob was a writer of pseudoscientific fiction during his leisure hours and, though his volume of literary sales was small, his fantastic imagination was a source of amazement to friend and foe and editor. Following Nell O'Neill's example, Andre; Yakov perched on a stool and leaned his elbows on a strip of illuminated plate glass. Tropical fish swam lazily underneath it among coral and aquatic plants. The man who proved to be the fabulous Bob Knox bowed to : Yakov and .then turned his gold- i glinted smile on Nell: i "You're just in time, lovely lady. 11 think Papa wants to go home/' ' He gestured toward the farthest I booth, "Behold the weary reveler!" Nell and Yakov turned and looked. Tom's crisp while hair showed up clearly against the table lop. One arm hung nt his side and the other rested on the board. "Kicked by A Moscow Mule," Bob observed cheerily. "That's what ginger beer and vodka will do," Nell slid from her stool and walked over to the booth. "Ginger beer and vodka?" asked Yakov. "At once? Together?" He searched the amiable face in front of him. The man had sleepy- looking eyes of an indeterminate aquatic color, and there was a fan of creases, indicating either joviality or sun, raying from their corners. There was a round button of a nose, a surprisingly well- modeled mouth and a fleshy chin. Bob was answering his question: "Sure. Put ginger beer and vodka in a chilled copper mug and you have a Moscow "Mule. Try one?" Yakov nodded. "It should he an experience." Bob began his manipulations, "Coming right up," * • * VF^HILE he waited for his drink, •* Yakov watched Nell awaken Tom. The while thatch finally bobbed tip and the pink face turned toward her: "Well," Tom said. "Well, so it's you. Come running back to your poor old fool of a husband, huh? .Old fool of a husband, that's what I am. That's what you think 1 am, isn't it?" "Tom," Nell demanded, "where's Martin?" "Where's Martin?" he mimicked. "How should I know where that blackguard is? Shall I tell you where he belongs?" Andrey grinned at him and raised the cup Bob gave him in salute. Torn slapped him on the back. "Good old Andrcjrvilch. Good old comradesky!" Tom raised his newly filled cup for a toast. Yakov responded with "Long life!" and they both drank. Yakov placet! an arm across Tom's shoulders and Tom grinned at him delightedly. "Tom, my friend," Yakov said casually, *H am still most anxious to moot our fellow artist. Martin Kill *or." O'lsYill frowned. "Ho knows hotter th.nn to stny in my company. And if he didn't know before, ho knows now. I told him just what t thought nf him. And 1 told him hist ivbnt he could exnect from Tom O'NfiU unless he keeps out of my sight." Tom wnverl a nfino* toward Rnl> who was lenninc on his one good elbow not for nway. oncnly listening (n (he conversation. "Didn't T, Rob? You heard me (ell him off. didn't I?" Bob gravely bowed endorsement. "Unmistakably and irrevocably. With clarity and dispatch." Nell sfoorl up and touched An- drc.v's arm. He made a slight gesture Inward her and continued to give Tom his attention. "I would like to henr more about this, my friend, but there is a small errand 1 must attend. Would you be so kind as to remain here, you and Nollya. for a short time, and wait for me?" * * • AN hour later Nell still sat at the bar, but had moved down to the far end near the wall. "Listen Rob. I'm going home. When Mr. Ynkov comes/bEick, ask him if he'll get Tom over to our place. You won't mind if 1 leave Tom here?" i' Bob snook^rus"head amiably, "Npt at all.ylovely lady. He's not doing.any harm over there. But if your RtissiaVi friend doesn't come hnck pretty soon, I'll trundle Tom into my little back room and 'let him .sleep it oft in there." He leaned against the bar and gazed up admiringly at Nell. "You know, that's the ntce thing about the old hoy, he usually knoxvs when he's had n drop ton much and then he lets me suggest the back-room treatment. Most times, he just ambles in there on his own hook and takes a short nap. He did it once today." Bob acknowledged her wave of farewell and ^watched her stride across the room and up the two steps to the old door. There was a brief surge of fresh, cold air as it opened and swung closed.
