"Murphy's waking upi M Gloria gasped, grabbing up tru; precious pie. "I got to get out of here! Wha would he think? r Or—or my husband?" She had already unlocked the kitchen window, was out on the fire escape before Hausen caugb her by the ami. He whispered urgently, "I'll in tomorrow for* my piece of pie Could be I ought to find out wha kind of apples you use. Toots," lie gave her a little shove am even as she whirled inside -he own window into the living room the lights behind her snapped of She sank down in the big chair panting, listening, but by now th party downstairs going ft: blast, people screaming wit laughter, the radio blaring, so sh .couldn't hear n 113'thing else for few moments and then Murphy snore came blessedly, She tiptoed to the door, opened carefully, and picked up the cmpl cup beside his chair and put il I the sink, suddenly realizing how .very weary she was.
