He nodded. "Right here at the Inn, (or the last six years. Been my home since my wife passed on. The kids are scattered and gone — even got > missionary daughter in Africa. Lives outside Nairobi. Married a preacher." Lucy placed a glass and a bottle on the table. As she did so. I heard the sound of a car doot clamming. It .seemed to come from the drive beside the Inn. Abner Cornwallis paid no attention, but the girl raised her head attentively. Then she moved quickly out into the hall and disappeared. I turned in my chair and glanced up at a mirror over the bar. It reflected the hall and the front door, »n are* which could not otherwise be seen from Inside the bar. I saw the front screen door open. A man entered •nd smiled at the girl. He was ot medium height, slight, maybe 10 years older than the girl, which, I guessed would make him around 30. He had close-cropped 'brown hair, graying a little at the temples, and wore a soft brown- and-tan checked jacket. He was only a little taller than the girl. She spoke to him, and pointed out the door. He shrugged, patted her check, and went out, closing the screen quietly. The girl came back down the hall. As she passed the archway, Abner Cornwall!, called, "Hey, Lucy, wheh's Hoy coming back?" "It's hard to tell, Abner." She entered the lobby. "A,m«n iuM cam* in," I Mid to him, "but he left What does Roy look like?" He swallowed another inch of his drink and gazed broodingly at the scant remainder. "Big man," he said. "Six-footer. 200 pounds." He looked up at me. "It wasn't Roy," I said. I drank my beer and thought about the girt named Lucy and the man who wasn't Roy. ROY arrived presently, perspiring and grinning, a big man indeed, a happy young man with friendly brown eyes. "It's a boy, Abner," he said to the sheriff. and IM was almost panting. "Eight pounds, three ounces." He brushed a sleeve over his broad red face. The old man stood up, shook Roy's hand and said courteously, "Congratulations." I stood, too, and shook his hand. "Good for you, Roy," I said. "My name's Bennett." "Pleased to meet you. Golly, it was » long wait." Two sunburned men wearing overalls and straw hats entered the bar and Soy passed out some cigars to the accompaniment of friendly and somewhat coarse comments. I stood up. "Going to be in town long?" Cornwallis asked.' "I'll be' around • couple of days, I guess. I'm staying in Steel City. Do you know Dr. Jatrett?" "Doc? Yes. Hit room's Just down the hall from mine." "Medium - sized man, rather thin, around 30, short brown hair?" I asked. He nodded. "That's Doc. You've met "him?" "Not yet, but I want to." I left the bar and as I moved down the hall I glanced into the lobby. Lucy wns no longer at the desk. In her place was an elderly gray-haired lady who wore rim- leas glasses attached to I black ribbon. I went on out through the screen door and arouna the drive to where I'd left my car. A number.of cars were parked there now. The second one from mine was a new, green two-tone coach with a metal medical emblem attached to the rear license plate bearing the word Physician. I went to my car, a two-year- old sedan. I rolled down the drive and around the square until I found a parking space facing the Inn. I was about to turn oft the motor when I saw the girl, Lucy, and the man in the brown checked jacket leave the Inn by the side entrance beneath th« portico. They went to the coach, got in, and came down the drive. I followed. • « • FIVE miles out ot town th« coach turned off and stopped before > long low building faced with sandstone. A sign over the entrance said, The Oasis—Cocktails — Steaks — Sea Food. The man and the girl got out of the coach and entered the place. I waited a couple of minutes and then followed them. It was a pleasant place, quiet, and discreetly decorated in soft shades of sand and blond pine paneling. There were beige leather-and-pine booths along one wall and a double row of tables in the center ot the big room. Beyond was a gleaming bar faced with chrome stools topped with beige leather seats. The stools were empty. A achol- arly looking bartender was deftly pouring what looked like martinis into two long - stemmed glasses. People were eating and drinking" in the booths and at the tables. I looked, .aroupd, but I didnt see the man in the checkered jacket or the girl named Lucy. A youth said, "Check your hat, sir?" I gave him my hat, accepted I check. A white-coated waiter came up to the bar, placed the two glasses on a tray and hurried to a far booth. My gaze followed him, and I saw the girl. She was looking directly at me, but when my gaze met hers, she glanced ' quickly away. (To Be Continue*) SECEDED FIRST South Carolina was the first state to secede from the Union.
