Reluctantly I abandoned my plans for trout fishing and drove up to Beech Tree. As I approached the Tweed Funeral Home on the square. I saw that Wilbur Tweed was out polishing the black sedan. I stopped at the curb and called to him, "Where does Mrs. Osborn live?" "She won't give her permission," he said, and he smiled slyly, showing hte prominent teeth. "I culled her this morning and advised her against it." "Thanks," I said dryly. -Doc Jarrett said it was a coronary," he said stubbornly, "and I'll back Doc to the hilt." "We're not questioning Dr. Jarrett's professional ability. We just want to clear the books. You mentioned that you were with Mr. Osborn when he died. Would you mind telling m« who else wny present?" "Well, there was Alice, and Abner Cornwall!* and my sister, Nellie, and Doc—" "And you all had been to the Christmas play at the school?" "Yes, but how'd you know?" "Mrs. Osborn told me. Would you plcnsc tell m* how »o grt to her place?" H« eyed me silently (or b mo ment. Then he said abruptly, 'Straight through town. Three miles out, on your right. A white and green frame house on a hill, green barn in back. But you may as well save yourself the trip. I'll phone her before you get there, and she won't sign." * • • I PARKED in the drive and walked over clipped grass to the front porch. It Was small, more of a stoop, with three cement steps and a painted wooden railing. The front door was open and I peered through a screen at a small neat living room attractively furnished with maroon carpeting, bright chairs and a flowered sectional divan. I pressed a bell button, listened to melodious chimes and waited. "Mrs. Osborn," I called loudly. Nothing. I turned, left the stoop and walked around to the rear of the house. A fat gray cat lay on the steps. "Nice kitty," I said. She stood up, stretched her front paws out, arched her back and tail, showed a pink needle- toothed yawn, and then moved to me on velvet pads and rubbed against my legs, her tail high. "Kitty," I said, "you're shedding." I walked over the grass to the green barn, opened a door. It was dusky inside and smelted like all barns smell, » good odor of hay and damp earth and horses. But the stalls were empty. I left the barn and stepped out into the bright sunshine. The gray cat stood by the pump busily applying a pink tongue to the soft fur of her chest. A» I l«»ned down to scratch her ears I thought I detected a movement by th« corner of the b«rn. I looked up quickly, thinking It was Alice Osborn, but saw only high grass bending and run tling hi th« breeze I pccrea clowljp •* tht burn, «nd «t U« wooded hill behind it, and then stood up straight and turned toward the house. I glanced back at the bam, remembering the half-imaginary movement, and then reached for the screen door- . cnob. • • • THERE was . a sharp crack! from behind me and a small thudding sound beside my head. : stared dumbly at the little black hole and the broken flecks of white paint. It took me may- je two seconds to realize that the hole had been made by a sullet. And then I jerked open ,he screen door, jumped inside and peered cautiously out at the wooded hill behind the barn. I saw nothing but green foliage waving in the breeze, and I heard nothing but the sudden angry screaming of the birds. I turned, took two steps into ;he kitchen, and stopped. I saw double sink beneath an open screened window Jianked by Bright flowered curtains. One of ;he sinks was half full of water to which were submerged thres medium-sized potatoes. Two of the potatoes were peeled and the curling skins were on a piece of newspaper beside th« sink. A small paring knife was on top of the peelings. I noted a small hole in the screen, a tiny hole through which a fly was already crawling. A woman lay on the floor, gen- 'ly reclining on the green linoleum, her arms outflung, one leg bent gracefully exposing • soft undercurve of white thigh. Her eyes were half open, with just the barest glint of pupils behind the dark lashes, and there was a small contented smile on her lips. Just beneath the neckline of her neat print house dress was » small red stain.. I had never seen Alice Osborn. I had talked to her on the telephone and something about her had oddly attracted me. I would never talk to her again, but 1 would not forget her, and 1 felt » deep sadness and a sense of outrage. There was no need for mt to touch her, but 1 did, on one cheek. The skin was still warm. And she was lovely, even tu death.
