Coming out of the gloom of the passage and the silence, they Imade Mannering's heart give sickening thump. He shivered in- j voluntarily, and then recovered enough to face up to his plight J "Move a step forward," the man ordered. It wasn't Tenner; it was a young ' cultured voice. Mannering shuffled forward s lew paces—and then back-heeled. There was a gasp as his heel struck the man's shin. Mannering whirled around while the other , was backing away, his mouth wide : open because of the pain. Something waved wildly in his right hand—not a gun but an electric torch. Mannering twisted the i man's wrist until the torch dropped, and then backed .away and showed his automatic. Scared eyes turned towards it. The other , had recovered his balance and was ( standing on one leg. as tf the pain ! from the kick was still acute. He drew in short, gasping breaths; noisy breaths. "Go into the kitchen," Mannering ordered. I The other hobbled in, obediently. Mannering stood by the door, listening, tense, bui all was silent. Had anyone else been roused, they would have shown up by now. The man probably in blue eyes narrowed in a pale but here was .young— the early twenties. healthy face. He limped to the table and leaned against it, raised his right leg and hoisted the leg of his pajamas; a blue leather slipper fell off. The kick hod broken the skin, and blood was oozing up gently from the shin. He muttered: "I'll make you pay for that." Manncring's voice w»« harsh; not a voice even Lorna would recognize. "Who are you?" "What does it matter to you? Clout me and be done with it." "I'll fix you when I'm ready. Who are you?" • T^HE pajama leg drooped slowly downwards; so did the man's resistance.^ "If you must know, I'm Charles Kenley." "Son of Wilfrid?" "His nephew, as a matter of fact, but "Just answer my questions.'* Mannering moved the gun an inch or two. "Were you upstairs in the room with twin beds?" The man nodded. "What woke you up?" "I heard something down here, and came to investigate." "Why didn't you bring a gun?" "Because I'm not used to keeping guns now that I'm a civilian again," said Kenley. "I suppose you know you'll get 10 years for breaking into a house and using a gun. "If you're not careful, I'll get a life sentence," Mannering said. He rather liked young Kenley, the answers appeared to come spontaneously, truthfully; if they did, then Kenley was not one of Penner's ruthless gang. "If you came to open the safe, you shouldn't have much trouble," Kenley muttered, "I'm always telling the Old Man that he ought to buy » new one, the one he's got must have come out of the ark." He was talking quickly, and to cover his nervousness. "Er—would you give me a cigaret?" •There's a packet behind you," said Mannering. Young Kenley turned, groped (or and found the cigarets, took one out Mannering had been prepared to Ind the armed watchman, to encounter some, of the men whom h« lad met at Bayswater—but this rather naive and likable young man presented a diflcrent prob- lem. It was one thing to attack the watchman, or to lay him out when he was attacked, but to knock out young Kenley in cold blood— Mannering was getting soft Kenley hurled the packet at him, and leaped forward. The cigarets patted Mannering's head, and the clenched fist grazed his chin. Mannering swayed to one side, and drove a punch to Kenley's stomach, which only half landed, and took a buffet on the side of the head. Another blow at the solar plexus drove Kenley's wind out with a wheezing gasp, his chin jutted forward. Mannering's fist on his chin rocked Kenley and made his eyes roll. Five minutes later, he was as securely bound and gagged as the watchman. Mannering draggea him, chair and all, into the scullery which led oil to the kitchen. The key was in the lock, and he turned it No chance that the men would work together, now, and perhaps break their bonds. TJE stood outside the first of the locked doors, and tried the «ys from Fenner's ring. He still thought of the man upstairs as fenner. The third key turned the lock, and he stepped into a draw- flg room, pastel blues and greens. In one corner was an elegant writing bureau. One of the two small keys on Fenner's ring opened ,t, and he found several small notebooks, some \lelters and • eather-bound book which looked very old. Some of the pages were oose, and the brown leather cover was badly rubbed at the corners and at the spine. Mannering put them all In a pile, strung, them round with » »rd, and made a loop to use as a handle. Then he relocked the bureau, went outside and put his haul on the settle near the front door. The door was bolted and chained; he unfastened it, then turned the catch. He could now escape from upstairs or down. He went to the kitchen. Neither prisoner appeared to have mad* much effort to wriggle free.
