XIH PLOTUA was still bolstering her courage with sophistry when her telephone rang again and Reuben's voice said breathlessly from the switchboard, "Tomorrow night at 9. Same place." He hung up before she could answer or ask any questions; probably someone WAS coming into the lobby. "Tomorrow. Then I've got to 'let hold of the pie tonight somehow," Gloria figured. But this wasnt going to be easy with a cop sitting outside the Benonis' door. The Benonis* fire escape window would be locked, o[ course, but there was still the dumbwaiter door. "It'd be burglary," she decided cloubttully. She hurried into the bathroom where she kept the lurn- inol pills in the medicine cabinet that the doctor had given her to use that week when she hadn't been sure that Miltiades was going to ask her to marry him. • Five minutes later, clad alluringly in her green chilTon negligee, she opened her door with a cup in her hand. "I just made myself some cofFee, officer. What is your name? I thought maybe you'd like one too." "Murphy," he told her. **Very kind of you I'm sure, but we aren't supposed to take anything on duty." "Well, ITI just leave U here in case you change your mind. I put in two lumps and real cream," she beamed, setting the cup down beside him on the red carpet. I'll pour it Into the aspidistra." ic warned looking down the corridor at the plant- Gloria merely smiled, left him, jul when she looked back, broalh- essly, through the crack of the door, he'd taken the cup into his hand, was sniffing it hungrily. She closed the door gently. She had nit all three pills in the cofTeo so in about 20 minutes, there was a noise like a kitten purring. At about the third snore, she tiptoed to the dumbwaiter, opened the door and looked down the shaft. "It would be away down at the bottom!" she worried as she pulled on the rope as carefully as she could, but it seemed to make a horrible racket coming up to her floor. What if someone saw her crawling across? Worse yet, what if she got on and someone decided to put out a garbage pail early, instead ol waiting for tomorrow and hauled Gloria down to a lower floor? She could imagine the inquiry: "How do you do, Mrs. Drown. Did you think you were debris?" QLORIA giggled and felt a trine ^ less shaky. The first thing to do was to take out those two shelves. She tugged at them, trying not to remember how Jack the Cork had looked, all doubled up like a corkscrew with the red slain on the front of his coat. Ugh! Just as she finished, put a small slippered foot experimentally on the dumbwaiter, a blast of laughter froze her to immobility as someone opened the dumbwaiter door on the floor below. A man's slightly fii7.7.y tenor drifted upward and a girl laughed and said, "That's the wrong door, Gus! Give me the cocktail shaker before you drop it, darling." Whew! That had been close. Gathering her trailing skirls about her, Gloria slid hastily into the dumbwaiter, pushed on the little door beyond. If it was locked—it wasn't. She slid to the kitchen floor with great sigh of relief and closed he dumbwaiter door behind her. I was light enough in the room 0 see. She was just stretching out her land to take the pie when the ight in the kitchen flashed on, ind Gloria stared horrified at lansen, the little janitor, standing n the dining room doorway watching her wllh hard gruj eyej that did not smile at all. "Oh. Good — good evening!" Gloria stammered. "I—I just .Iropped in to pick up my pie. Over there." When he did not answer, just glanced at the pi* and then looked sternly back at her as if he didn't like this at all, and she'd tetter explain but fast, she added breathlessly, "The lieutenant told me you'd be looking after me still. Lieutenant McGann, 1 mean. What did he say your name wns—Mr. Hansen? I didn't expect you'd be here." 'Yeah," he snarled. "So you were expecting me, hunh? And you dropped by for a pie." He look a step toward her snapping, "Or a necklace maybe?" QI.OHIA caught her breath. Maybe they had been expecting her. Maybe it was just a police trap to find out how much she knew. As she stood there, wondering frantically what to ».iy next besides a denial which h« would not believe, she could feel his eyes going over her, taking her all in, her shining golden hair, her slim perfect body under the thin green chiffon, the arch of her small foot in its satin slipper and she smiled inwardly. Of course. 'I never even saw a real emerald in my life," she said. "I think you plainclothes detectives arc so much more interesting than the men in uniforms!" She slid her jade green eyes under their long thick lashes admiringly over his face from which the sternness was melting. She murmured, "Do you like apple pic?" but her eyci Hid something else. "How about you'n me having a piece of that pie together?" Hansen said. "I could use some chow. You're a cute little button, Toots."
