Arnold Pfiefler looked through a window, open a few inches, and saw Stephanie Smith talking to Hagnr Blair. Stephanie had Hie cameo in her hands. "Isn't it lovely, Hagar? You can't imagine what it means to have it in my hands after all these years." Arnold saw Hagar plump down on the bed opposite Stephanie and say: "Hold on, girl. The cameo's not really yours yet, you know. We can't play finders-keepers when there's just been a murder because of that brooch. Or. at least, we're assuming that's why somebody stuck a knife into Falter." Arnold stiffened. So they knew about Marlin! "Another thing," Hagnr continued. "What's the story on this cameo? As far as you're concerned, I mean. You act like a Crusader holding the Holy Grail. I've got to know whether to aid and abet you or turn the thing over to the police." She brooded. "Have to, anyhow, I guess." Arnold shuddered. What would the police find out? Then Stephanie began to lalk. "You can't, Hagar!" Hagar shrugged: "It's evidence n a murder, don't forget!" "lint you want it loo! You can't give it up." "Oh, yes 1 can. Po you think I wanl Chief Peters In jug me for complicity? We're already suspects—or will be, anyhow, by tomorrow morning, But 1-think this is a gooil time for you to give me Uie story on the cameo. Your story, that is." Stephanie spnke: "Nell O'Neill is my aunt." Arnold choked uack an involuntary gasp. « • • '7^11 K girl's eyes were lowered to the cameo: "She doesn't know it, ol course, she hasn't seen me since 1 was a little girl. I despise Nellya, even if she is my mother's sister. She stole this cameo from my mother. My mother was dying (hen. She lived only a few days after Nellya left us." Arnold forgot the penetrating salt air. Me moved dangerously close to Ihc window to hear Hagar's words: "How did you know she was here in this little corner of the country'/" "I saw her picture in the paper when she married Tom O'Neill. There was a big story about it being his fifth marriage. II told all about how much money his other marriages had cost him in settlements and alimony. And the article called Nellya 'the blond Russian dnnccr.' " "Uinm. 1 think I remember seeing it. She was a ballerina wasn't she_?" Stephanie gave a short, bilter laugh. "A ballerina! One must have a soul to be a ballerina! My mother was the ballerina. My mother was dancing"ihe ballet in Moscow when she was only nine years old." Hagar stared at the girl. "This is the most fantastic story I've ever heard." "My mother showed me that it was a locket. It contains a picture of her and of my father." "Let me see." Stephanie looked troubled. "1 don't know how to open il. My mother used lo open it and show me the pictures. You press something and the cameo springs away from the frame. I think 1 can learn how it opens if only 1 can keep the cameo long cnouah." Stephanie spoke again, beseechingly: "Do you understand, llasar? It gives me an identity. A family!" I * 4 A .rtiNOl.D ducked as Hagai stood abruptly and faced the win- daw. "What happened lo your father?" "Mother received word that he was killed in Russia during llic revolution. He was trying lo escape und come lo her. He was captured and shot." "He must have been on the losing side. Did he have a lille?" "1 don't know. But sometimes mother used to lease me when I was naughty and say that liitle countesses didn't behave that way." "Clrcal graven gods! Vou don't suppose you're a counless?" Stephanie smiled. "I don'l suppose so. I've always thought ol myself aa an orphan who started making her own way in Ihe world by working in a department store in Chicago." She turned away again and perched on the foot of the bed. "Can you prove the cameo's yours?" "No." "Then how do you intern! tu get it away from Nell?" "She'll sell it. U'c know Ihat." "Wonder how she happened to let Falter gel hold of it?" Hngar was speculating. "Well, with, him dead, (here's no question of her ownership. She can claim it—if she can find it, But, here's some- Ihing we've almost lost sight of: Who put it in my collection cabinet. And why?" Closing her eyes lightly, she appeared lo be thinking hard. "Umm. 1 think I know the answer lo that one, though." Stephanie leaned forjvard "Who?" "Arnold PflefTer." (Tu lit Continued) Each year the earth rotates on its axis about 366!t times. SICK?
