The satisfied sparkle in her large gray eyes was genuine. She made a portrait of mature beauly between the drapes at Ihe doorway, tall, almost slender, aristocratic. Because her fur neckpiece was Ihrown back on her shoulders, there was a da7/.ling play of color find brilliance from Ihe strand of huge diamonds at her throat. Sterling got up tardily, late hi erasing a frown of annoyance. "I didn't expect you this early," he said lamely. "I'm glad it's early, m stop In and visit, unless that frown "Sorry I frowned, Miriam. Your necklace always does that lo me, you know, when you come in alone at night wearing il. "I've been facing YOU for almosl three years," Ma Miriam stood rigid.

"You're referring particularly to hip morning, aren't you. darling? That's why you've been fidgeting since I came in here . . . why you're upset. Still worried that money you that t rrally .about needing asked me for." "I made it plain needed it, didn't 1? You've written checks for me before. You haven't forgotten that you married a poor man. have you. Miriam?" "But never before has rl been $10,000, Marcus. And never before did it have to be in cash. What am I to think? What sort of things do you have to pay in huge sums of cash? I've read about some o* them: blackmail, bribes, racketeering." "1 told you there was nothing disgraceful about H.

I've been hoping lo see you grow up with courage to face things." Something in Marcus Sterling snapped. "I've been • facing you for almost Ihrec years." he said. He had hurled it at her bitterly. He instantly regretted his words. Miriam slood rigid, her back I'm had Thanks. I'll drink il when ready for bed." When she turned away from him, she added, "Cnod night." Sterling watched her go, power- ess to get out of his chair. He mumbled, "Good night." He heard the door of her bedroom close before he got-to his feet. His clothes clung to his big body uncomfortably. His checks burned. He pnced nervously. He looked at his wnlch. Five more minutes. He went over to the radio and turned it on. There would be an announcement of 11 o'clock and tlien the news. 'Flint might be a Soort idea, lo have the news going on Hie radio, to prevent voices— his voice nnd Bindle's voice—from being distinguishable upstairs. He bnd already forgotten about the dmihle dnse rif sleeping drops in Miriam's drink. Miri.-un's voice cmiic down to him. lie went out into Ihe hall. Miriam was standing at the head of the stairway. "1 forgot about the cars, Marcus," Miriam called d«,wn. "Your cnr had Hie driveway blocked. and now my car has you blocked from gelling out. I'll throw you my keys. Here they are." A ring of keys fell at his feet. "Be careful about my keys" Miriani called. "Leave them bcsioVe the telephone. Thanks," Sterling watched her move away . . watched until she closed her door. He picked up the keys am p.nlmed them wilh the ring around one finger, fie wns bark at the radio just in lime lo hear the II o'clock "hing." He hurried back into the halt, moved quickly to the front door. He saw a tbick, shadowy figure coining toward the porrh, wailed for the first heavy footsie]!.
