Nevertheless it was someone tn the house. It had to be.

Vtl HE had said so blithely, tn the kitchen the day ol the picnic, that she would come by way ol the bridge. That Luke should return unexpectedly nnd otter to. carry the heavy oasket over the over her, a feeling of warmth and bridge (or her was something en-1 comfort. It was as though she had been lost and loard herself saying she would ell Stella at one*. She knew *U he time, that U wa> Wednesday, .hat Stella wasn't there, thai thil was her afternoon, she'd gone at eleven. Bu\ there wo» no point In into it: it she got hungry, for goodness 1 sake, she could go down to her own kitchen and flx a curi of soup, couldn't she? So she said she'd eat and h« sounded salisliocl nnd then, easual- ly, never dreaming how he brought the terror into full play agvln. he said, "Oh. by the way. Ann. we'll have to yet a new typewriter. I slopped nt that place In Cleveland and they couldn't lix yours They sajd it was smashed beyond repair." "I haven't got any urge to save, but l'v« »lways wanted a convertible—if you'd lend mo enough to buy it, I'd have an incentive to pay you back!" VERMEER telephone bell rang. In quiet room it made a hi compelling sound thai brought her to her teet. sent the blood racing through tier veins. She stumbled over a footstool, picked up the receiver and stood there, sayim nothing, only clutching the rc^- ceiver in tight moist fingers. It was Rush. •Blello—" he said. And thi agflin, impatiently. "Hello . . .!" At the sound of his familiar voice a sense of reassurance swept tirely unforeseen by the murderer, had been lost and tcrriHcd and For a moment it wai alone and suddenly had reached a haven. She could breathe ogam. Thisi was Kusn. Ann! he said. Delinted Cotton Seed (Actual Six*) Murderer! like a word in a foreign language, her tongue shaped it. her lips spoke it, but it had no meaning. And yet it had. She shivered. Why was she being an ostrich? What on earth could she gain by hiding her head and refusing to face facts? There was substance to her terror, all right, and foundation to her fear, and she had to stop being a jellyfish and admit it. The wax—the letter. . . . Luke was dead, wasn't he? dead and buried? What more substance did she want? She knew her salvation lay In being honest but the dilliculty with honesty was that it was all inclusive. It she were to be fair she couldn't exclude Hush and Laurie from her suspicions. Although it was quite absurd to think for one moment that eitiier of them would want to kill her. :ing the receiver but she must have clone so because when she looked, long minutes later, it was back on the hook where it belonged. Hush's words brought a sickening sensation of terror that almost stopped her heart. The typewriter! She'd wanted evidence, demanded facts from her memory, anything to stop her from beinp. an ostrich. Dear God, how could she have forgotten the typewriter? Frantically, her mind lashed by panic, she remembered how everyone had said. "What a narrt cape. Annl It you hadn't stepped to one side . . .1" It took a frightful effort to move but she managed to get lo the dresser. She pulled and tugged at top drawer, it came out crook- f. sticking, ns it always did. at one side. Her hands, hot aiul feverish now. pushed aside gloves and handkerchiefs, found what she was searching for. She held them, felt their rough hardness against her fingers. "Ann, what's wrong, darling?" She opened her mouth to the words, they would gushed from her mouth In an torrent, frightened, incoherent, senseless too because they were so fantastic. But something stopped her. Sorriething~>nnate. Primitive. Simply stopped her tontjue in her mouth and would not let her speak. She said weakly, "ft's only hP ^ave e you U ea't"en anything?" He I struments of death, not,ur,less you became the doctor instead of the husband, the professional taking Ihe place of Rush. "Look, you have Stella fix you some toast and some tea. And soup.
