He had to keep his appointment with Julius Chesney. He put on his jacket and tucked the pistol into his belt. '"What are you doing, Vassili?" "I'm going out." "Have you lost your mind?" He knew now what he would have to do. Lingering farewells were impossible. He walked toward the door. She blocked his passage. "Vassili! ^hat b the matter with you?" "I said i'm going out" "Are you insane? The Gestapo will have you within an hour." "I can't take H any more, Lisa . . ." "Darling," she cried, "our people are working day and night! Another few days . . ." He whirled and bolted through the door. Mike stood across the street from the Piccadilly Ca/e. There seemed little activity about He wondered if he was making a mistake. But it seemed that Lisa was making him do foolish things He hedged and began to turn bock. "Ah, Jay Linden, right on time I see you got rid of your two traveling companions." Mike wheeled around and looked into the mastifT face of Julhif Chesney. A second man. apparently a seaman, stood alongside him. "Wolf, let UP not stand here on the sidewalk, dear fellow I believe a noonday nip is in or- fi'.T," Chosno.v wheezed. "Come :i\' nc. I didn't brins the German nimy with me. My friend here is Antoms, the captain of the Arkadin." The Unto cuutcd U.c tdlt and found an isolated booth. They ordered krast. Mike studied Antonis, who seemed oblivious as he puffed away on his pipe. Chesney, talking in whispers, told Mike the Arkadia was a small, trim and fast motorboat that carried a crew of three. The ship's papers would read: Crete, but actual destination would be Cairo. Antonis, Mike was assumed, knew the route well, having made two other trips with British escapees. Mike's sponsor, the man who was going to pay for his passage, was due to join them shortly. "When do w« sail?" Mike asked. "As soon as we get another escape* to man the boat." "Since I saw you last I raised some money. K Antonis and 1 can handle the boat between us. I'll buy the passage." The leathery old sailor nodded. He reckoned he and Mike could handle the ship. "Four million drachmas," Chesney shot out quickly. "Aren't you stretching it?" "You are the one who seems eager to leave." "I'll give you three million if we sail tonight." Chesney scratched his jowte. 'Let me see your money." • • • MIKE placed his bundle of cash on the table. For the first time, Julius Chesney showed emotion. His fat jowls quivered. His fleshy hand darted over the table. Mike grabbed his wrist. You take half now—half when we get underway." Chesney looked at the money, sighed and withdrew his hand and watched Mike carefully as he counted off a million and a half drachmas. Chesnoy recounted the money, his eyes watering. A small, gray-hatred man entered the cafe and looked around. "Ah, here comes another three million dirtciuuds/' Chcincy said. "Over here. Mr. Cholevas!" he called. The well-dressed elderly gentleman slipped quietly into the booth and nodded to everyone "Jay, meet your sponsor. The benevolent friend of the British, Mr. Apostolos Cholevas." Cholevas nodded quietly. Mike was curious about the man. He wondered why he was doing this. 'What good is my money if the Germans take over my country?" Mr. Cholevas stayed long enough to bave a half glass of wine and to give the money to Chesney He wished Mike a good trip and asked if perhaps he'd write after the war. The old gentleman departed with a last request—in let the British know what was happening in Greece. • « • JULIUS CHESNEY drew a sheaf of papers from his crumpled suit. He spread them out on the table. "Do you have identification papers, Linden?" Mike produced the card and papers that bore the name, Vassili Papadopoulos. "Good — good — this saves me an expense." Chesney wrote the name on the ship's papers. "Now, I believe everything is in order. The gas will r>e aboard before dark, gentlemen. Antonis, meet me later and I'll have the clearance papers and the patrol schedules." "What about inspection of the boat?" Mike asked. "My dear fellow. Do you cast aspersions on my ability? Ah me, by the time I finish oiling everyone's palm there is so little left. So many fingers in the pot, and prices are just outrageous these days." Chesney shoved his way out of the booth ,and patt<:d the pocket filled with drachmas affectionately He extended his hand. "Do be careful, Michael Morrison," Chesney said. "It would be extremely regrettable if the Stcrgiou list were to fall into German hands." Mike stood there, dumbstruck, as Julius Chesney waddled from the cafe Hunting and Fishing License Complete Stock of FishingJTackle GENERAL HDW & Appliance Co. Phone 3-4585 WE'VE GOT IT!
