"Oh, I wish you wouldn't listen to any of them!" she appealed to the sherifl. "Can't you get in touch with the man in Cheyenne? The man who says he repaired th« bridge just a week before Luke died? Wouldn't that prove I'm not making it up?" "We didn't say you were making it up," Enos said. "No one said that. We said you were reading something into it that wasn't there." "And it's not surprising," Rush said. "Not when you think 3f everything she's been through, poor darling. Gas acts as 3 depressive—that's probably the reason for most of this—she hasn't had time to—" "Won't someone listen?" Ann wailed. "You know 1 always wound the clock! No one was ever supposed to touch it but me!" Her eyes blazed suddenly. "Where is the clock? What have you done with it?" Rush wet his lips and Sam Blanding said, "I'm afraid there's not much left of it, Mrs. Bancrolt. It's—" "But the look!" she insisted, her voice too nigh and tight. "Wasn't there enough left to tell whether or not the case was locked?" Everyone looked at her numbly 'Silently. " ~ "Because don't you see"— She struggled with the words because she was trying to straighten out her thoughts al the same time— "the clock case was never locked. I've racked my brain— I've thought and thought. It's the only way it could nave happened, the only way it could nave stuck enough for Tommy to pull it over And if it was locked—" Her eyes were dilated with norror—"then you'll have to believe me!" "Ann," Rush said. "Darling, 'ou're confused." • • • JHK stiflencd and drew away ^ from his touch. "Hush, 1 know you mean well >ut you're asking me to doubt my own senses. 1 held that can of wax in my hands. I scraped my ingernail on that shool 1 was the one who got the letter from the man In Cheyenne and don't forget Unit if Luke hadn't come back—no one knew he was going to—" "Where is the letter. Ann? ?Yom the man in Cheyenne?" "I'll get it." Gay said, "if you'll tell me where it is.", Her voice startled Ann. It was the first lime she had spoken since the thing began. If youl) tell me where it is! Her mouth went slack and she stared al Gay and then, abruptly and without warning, she beqnn again to cry. The whole thing was hopeless, She didn't have a chance. "That's right, darling." It was Rush, making soothing sounds. "Tell us where you put the letter and Gay will g e t it for you." She shook her head back and forth but she was too drained ol emotion to say a word. "Mrs. Bancroft." Sam Blanding said. "Mr. Barton, here, asked a question that, the way 1 figure it. is kind of imrjcrtant He saic why would someone want to kil you? You know"— He lookec down at his fingers—"you're making a oretty serious accusation against someone, even if you haven't Dinned it down to any om person yet. Your Usl sort of ha: to be kind of limited and it seem: like nretty soon you're going to get dow7 to your husband am your sister. Can't think o much—* • • • J3UT Laurie stood up. She stoot in the sunlight and ner nai: wns a nalo arour -' her fane. He face was very nale and her eye. were black and hot and furious. "I've had enough of—of these— islrlonicsl" She bit the words ft and let them fall on '.he green latting. "The whole thing to holic, from beginning to end. In lie first place, why would anyone ratil to murder Ann? Or Tommy illier? It's crazy!" And then she drew herself up, traighl and proud. Her face lashed. "Naturally you all know I've ot a motive. If. by a motive, you ncan will 1 Rain from Ann's death. You probably know the enns of my father's will H well is everyone else In town and. If •ou don't, I'm sure Enos can give OU full particular:! Only, don't orget, by the same token, Ann as the same motive!" Her voice was scathing and bitter, her gaze nked Ann. "1 don't know why you'd want to do a thing to me at > time like this, Ann! I musi ay—" She stopped a moment and icr eyes narrowed. She looked at Rush and then at Enos. "Well, he does sound crazyl" Ann flinched as though Laurie had struck her. "Oh. that's already occurred to you. has il?" Laurie's voice was cold as .ce. "And to Hush and £nos as wc'l! That's the reason !or all this insisting that everything's fine and dandy!" Her figure was slim and deftant. "Well. ['II go on record publicly right now as saying that I don't want your money! Not a cent of it! I've enough of my own for my needs and it doesn't look a> though—" Her voice shook a trifle but she went on stubbornly—"It doesn't look as though I'll be marrying tor a while yet. And now. U you'll excuse me"— Her politeness was razor-edged—"I'm golnj to my room!" They watched her go and no one made a move to stop her. After her angry figure had passed from sight they all turned automatically and looked again at Ann. She bad shrunk back Into her chair. She'was biting her thumb. But their faces compelled her to speak. She shivered. And then she said, her voice ragged with strain. "But don't you see. if it is Laurie —if she's the one—-then that's exactly whnt she would say!"
