Opening the box. she ran her fingers across Hie purple velvet lining—idly she picked with her fingernail at the edge of the cushion. The cushion tilted. Hagar attempted to push il back inlo place, but it had become wedged. Using a hair pin as a lever, she dug carefully at the side of the velvet cushion to put it straight. It finally popped out. Hagar brushed the loose glue out of the box. blowing into it to remove the small particles. She held it close to Ihe light to appraise its condition, and it was then Dial she noticed the numbers. There ;were two sets of figures, engraved one beneath the other, and n single figure at the bottom. Probably some jeweler's code number, she decided. Arranged in a peculiar way, though, for that sort of thing: 10-4; and below lhat, 8-2; and below that, 6. She pressed the cushion back in place and closed the box. She started Ihe motor. Pulling [he wheel hard over, she whirled the little car around and pointed its nose downhill. CHE brought the car to a bouncing slop in front of Walter's mail box. As she climbed out and slammed the door, she was jeering at herself: "So far, old lady, you've behaved like n stupid cat worrving nt Ihe tail the lizard has left behind." She climbed the slcps lo Martin's porch, "Well, here's hoping it's not too Inte to catrh the lizard!" Jfagar saw n light inside and pounded on tile door. "Falter? Hey, it's me! Hagar. I've come to talk business." She leaned againsl the door. II creaked open about two feet and stopped. She stepped inside and looked around: \Vhat a pigsty! There was a bottle of red wine overturned on Die floor and a murky pool had spread out. around and under it. Probably lying drunk on his bed, Hagar decided, and made up her mind to prove it. She approached the half-open door of what she judged would be the bedroom and peeked inside. She froze for a few seconds, then her body perked up Inlo boardlike stiffness and she loitered backward into the studio. Though she could not now see through the bedroom doorway, the picture on the oiher side was photographed on her brain. Martin Falter, in blue and white striped pajama trousers, sprawled across the bed, the hair on his naked chest matted with glistening dark red, his head lolling on Ihe edge of a round pillow-bolster, and the whole dreadful tableau slartlingly illuminaled by the light of a fluorescent reading lamp. Her eyes lost their look of va- canl horror and became only astonished and curious as Ihev darled over the disordered studio. Except for the spilled wine, Hagar thought, there was no sign of a fight. She noticed, then, that the front door was wide open and went over to close it. She reached for the knob, paused a momenl and pushed the door closed with her foot. Cinching up her nerves, she decided to look for Ihe r^.^n o i,, | nc bedroom. Taking a pair of gloves from her pocket, she slipped them on and walked through the bedroom noor on liploe and closed il behind »cr. She kept her eyes ofT (he bed as much as possible. ON the floor, near the clnset door, she saw nn open suitcase; a number of clean shirts and socks were strewn around il, Hagar concluded the bag rind been already searched and lurncd her attention to a wardrobe chest op- posile Ihe bed. She examined Ihe contents of the drawers nnd found but a few nrUU nnri nnrlc of clothing. Slowly, then, her eyes averted, sno advanced toward Ihe bed. She crouched beside it and, feeling as though she were about to touch a dead snake, slid her hand under the pillow bolster. There was nothing lucked away Iherc. nnd she was nboul to withdraw her hand when she realized that the area under the pillow was hard and smooth rather than resilient. She pressed her ringers down on what seemed to be a wood panel about 10 inches wide which extended from her edge of the bed to a point almost halfway across. She sat back on her heels and cons 4< red: There seemed to be a rectangular piece cut out of the mattress, and in the hole there seemed (o be some sort of com- parlmcnt or box resting on top of Ihs springs. Hagar realized that there was no way of exploring this further without moving Faller's body. She shivered. Then, warily, she untucked the sheet from Ihe side of Ihe bed and peered underneath. Filled in snugly belwcen Ihe mattress and bedstead was a gray wooden box of a type used by carpenters to carry tools. Hagar slid her hands in on each side of it and pulled- it slid forward quite easily. Hagar glanced up al ihe bed and her slomach churned! The pillow bolster was sellling as she moved the box from beneath it and Faller's head and shoulders had begun to slant toward her! (To Be Continued) .
