WHItqm M. Hmm III. MUrlteM >? HI* XXXH T ENORMAND'S death was an unsolved mystery. Tha police had never been able to find the murderer, but they don't flnd *very murderer anyway. Galli- Galli and his cards was a trick, in a night club where I was none too sober and probably easy to fool. Most mind reading of the sort I'd accused Selena of on the Montauk road was a matter of close observation of the small gestures and expressions of the other person, and Selena was a highly intelligent woman. She had pulled on the brake because some scrap of sound or a flash of sun reflected from the approaching car had warned her. And as for the fire at Cloud Mesa, she had simply found a mntch. There was no part of my story which did not have a rational explanation. "All those things," Dr. Lister said quietly, "are out of the ordinary But I don't see any mystery in them. 1 can think of an explanation for every single one. Except LeNormand's death, of course." "And Jerry's," I said brutally. "Yes," tie replied In a low voice. "That is the hardest of i all for mo to accept." j "There are some common fac- : tors." 1 said "There's no expla- \ nation in either death. The presence of Selena, Jerry and me in the vicinity both times. And Le- Normand's questions were part of the setting." "Anything else 9 " "And there was a fire, both times." He nodded. "Jerry had nothing to do with the fires. And 1 didn't. That leaves Selena. Selena and the equations." The pi«ce« were ilowlv fitting themselves together in my mind, but nothing was wholly clear yet, and the picture which was forming was not translatable into ordinary words. "The only other thing I'm sure of," 1 said lamely, "is that when Jerry realized Selena had managed to light the fire, he thought at once of something else." "And that means, or suggests, that if you are right the answer must He in her." There was no shadow of doubt in my mind on that point "It's got to. If we' knew who she is and where she came from—" "Luella Jamison?" "What do you think?" He shook his head. "I don't see how sh« could be. Even if the idiocy were the result of some mechanical factor, and not congenital, it could not have cleared up so fast." * • * WHEN he finally spoke he chose his words slowly and carefully. "Selena is the most intelligent and the most beautiful woman I've ever met." He paused again, and went on in an altered voice. "1 was not entirely happy about Jerry's marrying her She seemed hard to me. not merely on the surface but all the way through. I kept watching her, hoping to see her tender or openly m love with Jerry, and I never did. She was cold and reasonable: impersonal is perhaps the word, and 1 never knew whether she was different to Jerry I worried about it. I didn't believe, till tonight, that she had another side at all." I was puzzled. What, 1 wondered, had 1 told him to make him revise his estimate of Selena? "You told me that the first evening you were out there she wu reading on* oj Jtrry'* olal DOOKS, DO you remember saying that? One of his old booki of fairy stories." "I was trying to remember what story she was reading," I told him finally, to explain my silence. "I only looked at the few words I told you about—" '"The Little Mermaid,'" he said, "the saddest and the best of all Andersen's stories. You must have read it. Don't you remember the little mermaid princess who lived at the bottom of the sea? One day she came up to the top of the water and saw a ship with a prince in it. She saved him from drowning and brought him to land. And she fell in love with him." * • • IT came back to me with a rush. "The witch transformed her fish's tail into legs and feet, but whenever she walked she felt ai if she were treading on sharp knives. She gave her tongue to the witch, so she could not speak. And she agreed that it she didn't win the prince's love, she had to die without an immortal, human soul." He looked away, "Jerry always used to ery about that part of it" The rest of the story was flashing through my mind. How the little mermaid, after devoting herself to the prince, found that tie was going U> marry someone else, and how, on his wedding night, she slipped over the rail of the ship on which the wedding party was sailing, and dissolved into the sea foam. Perhaps. But in the instant when the memory of the story completed itself in my mind, another explanation for Selena's reaction to it occurred to me She might have cried because the story was moving and beautiful —or because it was true. It was a fantastic, horrible notion, and I wanted immediately to stop thinking of it 1 remembered Jerry's he .ookod at Selena there on the settle before the fire she had somehow managed to light Certainly there had been.horror ftn4 Incredulity in his eyes.
