Sn could hear their voices in th downstairs hall. They were com ing toward ihd stairs. She turne the key noiselessly in the lock then turned, ran almost, to th bed. Th*-)l was where they won! expect to find her, lying down trying to mm her headache. She lugged the covers aw crumpled them slightly, Jerke one pillow sideways. Then lay down. She closed her eye tried to relax her tensed muscle And then Rush was there, stand ing beside the bed, looking dow at her. "Hello, darling," he said. "How the headache? Any better?" "A Little, I think>" she said. He stooped to kiss her forehcac iglUCJied up, looked around room. The heat in here is enough to vc you another." he said.

"And you didn't eat," he said, till watching tier. "I'll fix you tray." Hi left (lie room and her only eeling wa* one 3f overwhelming clieJ that she hadn't shown the ear. [3INDA came In but only for -*-*• minute. She seemed lo under- itand that Ann wanted to be alone. Gay didn't come in, just stood .her? in the doorway. "They picked me up at the station," Gay said. "I'm so sorry ibout your head, Ann. Laurie's ixing supper, she said you wcren :o worry about a thing. And I'L iclp her." She smiled at Ann, her slow smile, and, as cjuieUy as sh :iad come. Gay wont away. Rush came back with a tray. A tureen of thick steaming vege table soup, buttered toast, (ragran hot tea. He helped her undress got out a nightgown and be jacket, propped her on pillow watched tier eat. Amazingly tasted wonderful. She ale greedily "Better now?" Rush asked, lak ing the' tray- She sighed a little, -tretched he toes down in the bed. She did fee better. Could she have been • little b crE^y this afternoon? It could all be so easily plained. One of the maids mu have left the can of wax In closet Rush had probably carried the golf bolls upstairs, unthinking As for the bridge—-well regard less of what The man trotn * Wyoming sajd. the rope* had frayed. They must nave. Thai's all there wns to any of It- She Inured softly, "Darling, you're a wonderful doctor.' she said to Hush. "The soup was wonderful and you'r* wonder I ill— evcryUiint{'s wonderful!" She felt liglilhcndod with reliel. She told in she even thought she might : ;iblc to sleep now. "And leave the windows wide >en," she said. "That fresh air 'en tastes good." • • • IE left her alone and she settled deeper into the pillows, nulled ie covers up around her shoul- en. It realty was amazing the way er mind had worke<i this nller- oon. Imagine sitting down in our bedroom, trying to figure oul hy one of five people would r ant you to Jie. And since she could think of no once iv able reason why either ommy or Gay would want to Kill cr, and because, subconsciously r otherwise, she wanted so much j absolve Laurie and Rush, she ad taken the devious rout* to linda. How could she have thought Rinda capahle of such a thing? low could her sense of fairness ave been so distorted, her loyal- ies so completely blotted out? Even if she'd thought Rinda able to plot such a thing and carry it out, now had she been able to convince herself thai that old col- oge scandal was a strong enough motive for murder? Poor Rinda. She'd suffered agonies over thai old affair. She still did. The casual relerence to il the other evening had made her turn white. Probably more than anything else in the world she wnnted to forget It And how idiotic of Ann to think that because nine years ago Rindi had 5^en someone die, had been perhaps the =ause of his dying, she should now w«im lo murder Ann simply because Ann shared that knowledge.
