Ke got out of the train at Liver- Pool Street, looked up Roger Dickson in a telephone directory, hesitated about phoning him, then decided It might be better to go rieot along and call in person. A manservant answered ttx door. "Mr. Dickaonr" •I'm sorry, sir. Mr. Dfekgon hot at home.** "I set. Von can't letf me where I could find him?" "We*, no, sir, I'm a/raid I can't. He should have been back this evening, but I've had a telegram to say not to expect him till the morning." Paul took a tight hold oa him- "He'« o«t of town perhaps?" "Mr. Dickson's been in Paris, sir far the week-end. Would yoy care to leave alnessage?" Paul's face was white and set. A hmiult at emotion surged through him. Ragx. Jealousy. And a very reeJ anxiety. "I don't Ifaink to, thank., I*U call again." "Very good, sir." He turned away as the door closed upon him. Well, that was lhat! tie shouldn't have been such a fool as to come chasing up to London. Hadn't he only got what he'd expected? Only what had he expected? And what had be got for that matter? There might be 5fl explanations as to why Roger IJickson was in Paris. It might even be that Patience wasn't witk him. Or, a she were, perhaps they'd both gone over in a party. But supposing they hadn't? Supposing just the two at them had gone— TyjORNING found him, after t 1 * sleepiest night, wondering what was the best thing to do about «. Meet all the trains from Paris? Meet all the planes? Since he couldn't very well be in several places at once, this wasn't a very feasible proposition. On consideration, he decided to go to Dickson's flat agaio. 'Ah, yes, sir," said th« manservant. "You called yesterday. WiM yoti come in, sarT** 'Mr. Dickeon't back?" •Yee, sir. He arrived only a sfeort wbiie ago. I*» tea Mm yoti'pt here." . The man showed him into a sort of combined silting and dining room. Paul admitted grudgingly to himself that it was exceedingly comfortable. Books lined the walls. There were deep leather arm chairs/ "You wanted to see me?" He turned to find Roger standing in the doorway, disgustingly handsome in a red-and-white-striped dressing gown, * red silk scar* around hia neck. "I'm sorry. Please (orgive me. The trouble it I've got such a shocking memory for facet. I know yo«, of course, but I just can't place you." "You don't know me," »id Paul aggressively. Roger's brows drew together. It struck him that the young man looked white and strained, and rather M tf be might be alter his blood. "But you know someone know," went. on' Paul. "Palience Mond. Perhaps you'd be • gooc enough to tell me where she is.' Roger looked at him. "Ii your Christian name Paoi by a»y chance?" Paul glared at him. "Yes. But what's that got to do with it?" "Only that she's mentioned you to me." "Where U she?" demanded Paul hotly. ' Roger held hu temper. "Pa- tw said easfty. Tin, she'i on her way back horn* to th« country. l>e j«M seen hw off oa the 8:40." "Your man toW mt you'd b«ea in Paris." "So I have. I Itaveled tack over night." "Was Patience with you?" Roger reached for a box o* ciga- rets, offered it to Paul who refused to have one, and lit one for himself. So this WM what all the trouble was about! "She wasn't with me exactly. I mean, there were other pcopl* there too. Her sister and •-'-tfcir man, at it happened." Paul started. "Her sister?" "Ye*. Her twin iiat«r, Char- loHe." "Jumping Jupiterr "I say, is anything wrongr* Paul swalioweo hard. "Wa€ Uie sister at i party given on the stage at th a Apollo alter that new show opened there a week or two back?" "Sure. She's Cnrlotta, She'i in the show. I say. you tmwt b« the young man who mis look her for Patience. CK course! I'd lorgotr ten. Patience wa« most meet about «.* Paul pushed a hand back over his hair. "Thi« ParU bueineM," went on Boger, "was a bit of an escapade. Unfortunately, Patience and I loat the plane home yesterday afternoon." "Patience and I—" Paul'i jealousy slirred again. "Mow convenient!" "Don't be silly," laid Roger shortly. "If it had been convenient d?-,y 0 >' H triir>k,. we'd have traveled back by night on that awful Newhaven-Dieppe route without even so much as a couple of berths?
