J EJY ROY VICKERS CHAPTER XXXII. f'i'hen came the hoarse screa n of af O A CHA1 AN f echoed Alan, (man in mortal agony. "It's a fff'od thing that) Alan was urging her to a run. fellow doe;;n't understand Running towards them wa.* a policeman, who drew his revolver English. That ia the patron. By · neries of mortgages he probably o-wns the greater pr.rt of this outfit. The driver Is bis paid servant and he lives on the difference." They drove out of the dock fa!ea; Shirley, isnc-ring the dirti- new of the gharri, looked about. her. They were passing through a narrow sidestrctt with a view of thn main street ahead of them. "Oh. ihey have basest" exclaimed Shirley, might be a Village." A.nd this street here street In Greenwich "You'll find bits of over? place here ami of every time,' answered Alan. "You'll find bits of the history of every country in tivj world walking vbout." They turned into the main road, narrowly escaping collision with th»j latest model of a Rol!s-Royc« driven by a liveried chauffeur. On th-2 other side of the RolVRoyco wns a team of fou- oxen drawing a cart laden with beer barrels, in ehargre of a driver i n flowing robes and a dirty red heiiddresa. "Look at those t^wo thinjjst" exclaimed Alan. "There's some three or four thousand years between th-wn--and neither of them is out of placo here." Presently they seemed to be passing out of the city proper into a suburban quarter. In a quiet ·q lare of compartutivoly modern stuccoed buildings, the gharri ·topped. "This ia the Luteda," said Alan. "1 stayed here once before and. a.- far aa I can remember, it should b« good enough." As they walked throug-h the revolving jijlas? doors he added: "It's run by a quiet, decent Armenian--" "Not now, boss," said a sleek sian standing in thrs lounge. Alan turned. "Oh, you've bought the place, ha-'e youl" he a.tclahned. "I gather you're American." "No. I'm a Bulgarian," explained the man. "Bill I've h«d fifteen years' experience in New York. Andropoulides, who had the place before me, ia dead. So are his -wife and child. He had a bit :o© much to say to th« police." Alan n o d d e d indifferently. Shirley wondered irhat the man oj«ant by trouble with the police. The hotel seemed confortable jnough at first sight, though the proprietor was ana,lle to provide -.hem with a private sitting-room. rhoy engaged threci bedrooms in jach of which was n reproduction »f the statue of Liberty and two religions subjects. "I'd better go and see about that 'ujtffage of ours," said Alan when the;/ lhad inspected their rooms. "The lobby here is quite decent and if I were you I'd stay there. Well go on a tour of inspection when f [jot back." In th* lobby Shirley endured the conversation of the proprietor for an hour, at tha end tit which, being called away, he presented hnr with a copy of La vie Parisienne and of a three-months-old New ¥"ork paper. For anol her two hours ahe endured the boredom of total inactivity and then, seeing the proprietor return, decided to go out. She found anothi-r main road turning into the heart of the city, then, fascinated whh the sights iind sounds about BIT, walked on. Presently, a few ysrds ahead of her a door opened ind out «f it ran an elderly Jew, crying loudly, the tears streaming down his chc'iks. At the sam- ti.-ne, behind her, she heard Alan's voice. "Look out! There's going to be trouble 1" She turned round and aa she turned had a fleeting glimpse of men surrounding the Je-w. and fired. Instantly then came an answering report from behind them. The next moment Alan picked her up in his arms and v-tusked her to a doorway. The d«;or was locked, but the brickwork on either side wan just wide enough tt shield them from a chance bullet. Alan's arms were about her, crushing her so that ahe could not breathe. At that moment ; 11 fear had left her. "His back Is exposed. He is risking his lifo for me," ran her thoughts. "Why the devil did yoi leave that hotel when I told you n t to?" he growled at heir -- it eemod hours later. "1 don't know. I waa bored waiting for you. I'm very sorry, Alan. Is it all over?" "Yes. Don't look behind you. We'd better go back an I have some Ituvch." By the end of the first month Shirley had interviewed a number of minor officials, obtainin,; from them illusory promises a id accomplishing in fact nothing whatever towards obtaining a g -ant of military protection. But in other respects the month had not been wasted. She ad become familiar with the city and such of the customs of its inhabitant* as concerned herself i nd her mission. Also ahe had acquired a house. Alan had been agttinst taking n, house a soon aa she ha mentioned it, and had never ex ilain«d his reasons. Finally the boredom resulting from a lack of rivacy at the hotel had won him o er. They had taken the furnished house of a once prosperous native of appartntly modern sympathies, for the hous« was well furnished throughout. It was p easant enough even if judged by Vmcri- can standards. It had twelve rooms and a garden that (loped down to the tide Jess sea. A boose that would have been co nmon- place enough in any Long Island bay, but for the fact that house, garden and waterfront wen surrounded by spiked iron taling,i twelve feet high. Shirley had been puzzled oy tht palings, thinking them a mi .-taken form of decoration until AUn explained. "Wait till you sea an i xcited mob of a thousand or so R ussul- men running amuck--you"l b s glad enough of the palings then," he had told her. And she had ooked from the Massive oak sideboard to the rest of the furniture atv' tried to imagine tho frenzied tR tissul- men. The task of housekeeping she had not attempted and a S «Yish Jewess looked after the Gree ; cook and two housemaids, and on the whole made a very good job of it. ' While she was making her futile journeys to the various municipal offices, Alan was actively em loyed in inspecting and overhauling the local depot ef Macedonian Developments. "Things seers to be fn a rather better state down here than t'ae report led me to believe," he totd her one (.lay. "I shall make a t"ip up country this week and Insptct the nu'nes and the track that's a ready laid. In the meantir-.e, i ' you want help with your end i f tha stick, let me know." "·Am I being too slow, Ala a?" "No. I didn't mean you t take that remark aa a criticism." "I can't really tell yet whether I am likely to do any pood or not," she said thoughtfully. "1 am working my way through a lot o" nonentities and sifting them out --and it takes time to discover tha they are nonentities. Tomorrow I';n seeing the Commissioner. Judging by -the difficulty of running him to earth, he's rather exclusive." They were sitting over the tiri: after dinner. It waa now the middle of November and a spell of cold weather had j;et in. Alan was looking through sn account book while sh« waa turning the pages of a catalogue. Suddenly sh« laughed and he looked up. "Feeling a bit nervous?" he asked. "1 was thinking ho-w funnily it has all turned out." she answered. "You nwulfi me think of something dangerous and thrilling when you talked of Macedonia. It's all frightfully picturesque, of tburett, and interesting in its way, but I go out everj.' mm-ning in a comfortable hired car, do a bit of shopping; n.nd tall: to polite officials. And in thc evening--well, look at us. It may be the influence of this dreadful furniture but I feel that wo are becoming exactly like an ordinary American suburban couple." Thero' waa a king silence and she thought that he had returned his attention to tie account book. But presently he spoka: "Except that wo are not a 'couple,' Shirley." "You are very Jfteral," she objected lightly. Inexplicably to her, the words had hurt her. Inexplicably, too, there had leaped into her mind that moment when his arms had been about her, shielding her from the chance of being hit by a, stray bullet in the street "I suppose the truth is you «et frightfully -bored with the eve- rungs here?" he suggested. "And sigh for the o!d days?" ahe supplemented. "You're wrong, Alan. I'm not bored hero with you. You couldn't bore me if you tried." To her surprise he slammed th* notebook and tucked it under hi* arm. wJ,' 1 ,' 10 m ? 5t Sratified to hear that. Shirley," he rasped back. "But I feel in very special danger of boring you tonight And ns I don't want to spoil my reputation I'll go to bed. Good niglrt," Shirley was amused. This, sh« sensed, was no ordinary outburst of bearish ness. Mjj voic« had sounded definitely angry. For long she sat by herself, puzzling her bram to discover how ihe had offended him. At breakfast on the following nvoming he seemed to have forgotten the incident, aj;d she, too, bad put it out of her mind by the time the hired car was -waiting for her. "Good luck with the Commissioner!" he said itmiably as she left the house. Shirley feh that she was goin e to have good inck with the Commissioner. Perhap.1 it was tha really sumptuous offices that ga»e her that impression. She was shown into an ante- room th»t might have formed part of a roy*l ·olte. where, after some delay, v«. minor official requested ier to sign « caller's book, giving particaUrs of herself. She signed the book as "Mrs. Alan Bennaway," ir^ter which the minor official madt small conversation with her for a full hour; then, glancing-at tlw clock, he exclaimed abruptly: "Monsieur Stavros awaits you* pleasure, madame." The Commissioner, a p/affy Greek in early middle-age, got Hp as she entered and then set down abruptly as if hill gettin;; up had been a mistake--as, indeed, it had been. "This is the first time I have had the pleasure o' addressing an American lady," hi- said in fluent French, "In it possible that I can have the good fortune of being of some service?" "The Commissioner is too kind," responded Shirley, and then listened patiently to a disclaimer on the part of the Commissioner and a panegyric of the riches of America.
