Ph. 3-8962 Moultrle & B'dwaj To Walk The Night By William Sloane XXX A FTER a while he went on, and his voice was lower and graver, somehow. "LeNormand -was kitted by some kind of chemical, or else a ray of some sort. And it must have been because of his work. There was no other reason to kill him." "There was Selena." "Yes," he said. "Selena. Selena who won't tell me who she was .before we met her. Bark, can you, for God's sake, tell me why she should be so silent about her past unless it would connect her, or someone she is sheltering, with that murder?" His voice was suddenly strained and urgent. "You see what I have to think, don't you, Bark? I know it was a scientist's murder. ] am certain Selena knows who did it. That's why she's keeping such a careful watch against giving anything away about her past." "And she married LeNormand just to keep an eye on him?" He nodded grimly. "Yes. Do you think I like this? Do you think I enjoy suspecting my wife of being implicated in a murder —a horrible murder, at that, and of a man I liked?" "1 think you're building a lot on a pretty slender foundation." "You see, Bark," he said quietly, "if I can't eliminate this horrible idea I have in my mind, I'll have to live with it for the rest of my life." WE got up, after that, and stiii'tcd down the mountain. The wind was cold nl our backs, and we hurried. Several times I should have liked to smoke another pipe, but the matches were all gone. I muttered about that annoying fact to Jerry, and was surprised to find that he was rery bothered about it. He was ttrUio that the matches we bad used there on the mountain were the last ones in the house Neither of us liked th? idea o a fireless evening, a cold supper and a long drive into town th> next day. Suddenly he stopped aim turrled back to me with a grin. "Say, I know what we can do We'll get a fire with a spark from the car battery. Why didn't ] think of that before?" OUR path .brought us rounc the shoulder of a ridge and into sight of the house about a quarter of a mile ahead of us. The moment we saw it, both of us stopped. The window at our end a living room window, was glowing with light. From the orange warmth of it in the shadow of the wall, from the way it flickered, even at that distance we knew the light could come only from the fireplace. Jerry looked at the light awhile without speaking or moving. For a minute or two his expression was incredulous, and then it changed, tightened, altered, in a way that I could not analyze. "Maybe Selena thought of the battery stunt before we did, or maybe she found a match," I suggested. "No," he said, "the car's still in tha shed and there wasn't a match in the house . . ." His voice trailed of! slowly, reluctantly, I thought. Sure enough, when we entered the living room there was a big, crackling fire on the hearth, dried desert wood that burned intensely and was gone to ash in an hour. Selena was sitting on the settle, looking into the flames. "Hello," she said. "Have an Interesting walk?" "Sure," I said, "only keeping UP with » lom-lcticd mountain goat like your husband is no job for one who hath been long in city pent." Jerry was standing behind the settle, behind Selena; he took out his package of cigarets. and put one between his lips. His voice was perfectly casual. "Gimme a match, will you, honey?" That woman could think, and think fast. Only the smallest trace of some expression went over her face; then she stooped and pulled out from the flames a long twig of mesquite. "Here," she said, and held it to his cigaret. He drew in a long drag of smoke and looked at her across the flame without saying anything except "Thanks." She tossed the twig back into the flames. "We were worried," I remarked. "Jerry was positive there wasn't a match in the house. But I see you found one." Jerry came round the end of the settle and stood at the opposite side of the fireplace, looking down at his wife. "Yes," he said, "where did you find the match?" • * * SHE looked up at him and there was a sort of stillncs;, in her face that I shall never for- jet. "Does it matter?" "No," he said, "it doesn't matter at all where you found it It matters if you found it." The remark made no sense to me at all, and I still don't understand it, but Selena did. "You shouldn't have said that." There was no anger, no sharpness in her tone, only what sounded to me at the time like despair. Jerry was staring at her; the ook on his face was so thinly sharp, so direct, so full of horroi hat I was instantly aware that his conversation, which was meaningless to me, possessed some sort of positive and dread- i.)l implication (or him. "So," he said, "so that's it, I've wondered for a long time." She looked at h!ns calmly. "] rlcd to stop you." <To be Continued} "Oh, 1 know I'm going to pass this year.
