XIX VLMA drew a deep breath. So * it was Bright Muncie who had been in that office where the man lay murdered! For all his petty weaknesses, Tommy was Incapable of such a crime and she should have known it all along. She went over to him and touched his hair gently. "Tommy-something very serious has happened." she began. "We may be involved. The only way we can be of help to each other, is by being truthful. I beg you, in the name of everything we have meant to each other, be frank!" "All right," he said. "What Is it?" "A man has been killed. At the Mammoth Gold - buying Company's offices. I went there to sell our old jewelry. And I picked this cuff-link up on the floor." She told him the details and then added, "Why would Bright Muncie have been there?" "Good heavens, I don't know, y^lma! Of course, in his position ^>s assistant -gtneral manager. Bright took care of gelling the bids for the workroom sweepings But this year Mammoth didn't «vcn putlin a bid." "Look here, Tommy! ft's time yo« told me all about your new Job with Bright—I don't care how confidential it's supposed to be." His face was more serious his eyes more truthful than she had ever seen them before. "Too confidential, I'm beginning to think!" he said grimly. "But I swear ail I've ever done or been told to do was to collect payments due and hand them over to Bright?" "' Have >'°>» ever collected from Mammoth?" "No. Never!" , "From Higgins, ft e winning company on the floor sweeping bid? "Yes. The first time was when 1 bought you the wlvu foxe*. Bright gave me » package to take down. I don't know what wai in it." "That was quite a while ago. Anything since then?" "Yes. Last night, after midnight." "After midnight?" "I was sent down right after the sweeping was over. The carpenters had started laying the new floor." "Bright sent you, I suppose. And who gave you the money?" • • • "TTIGGINS himself. In h« private office. Part of It was intended for me. Having all that cash to spend was what got me into trouble. 1 * "And the rest you were »o turn over to Bright?" "Well, yes. At least I was tup- posed to hold it until Bright asked for it." "Until Bright asked for it personally? Why not turn H in to the cashier at Trumbull'st" "I understood the money was to be used in some dealings with (he diamond curb-market along the Bowery—the sort of thing The House couldn't do officially but which was necessary because of the diamond shortage." "And Bright made these curb- market deals personally or through Higgins and Company?" "I honestly don't know." Tliey were looking at each other .-•ilh growing comprehension. Alma got the f«ling that for the first lime in months they were working toward a genuine cooperation. "Jewels," he said at length, "I'm beginning to think that the smell Hamlet noticed in Denmark was a bunch of roses compared to what we're up against here!" Despite the seriousness of (he moment she could not help smiling; it was so good to the old Tommy through the uncertain mists which had been separating them. 'No matter what he did " she said, "we've always thought of Bright as Mr. Muncie's son, first. It made him practically immune to any very serious criticism." • • • W JT certainly did in my mind. But now I'm not so sure. The Mammoth firm has always put in a bid. Could they have been deliberately prevented from doing so this time? If Bright had been threatened with exposure by Mr. Wheeler, the manager, he might have gone there this morning To try to stop it." 'Wait! We must not think too fantastically. Tommy, have you ever had any other conta-ts through the Higgins Company? Outside of Bright?" He thought a moment and then frowned. "Only one," he said at length. "After 1 was paid oft last night Mr. Higgins gave me some stuff to take to Mrs. Dcnton. Wanted a Trumbull appraisal of it. But there's nothing unusual about that: The House appraises for loti of small firms." "What was wrong with their own bonded messenger?" "Nothing that I know of. Higgins knew I'd be going to The House this morning and just asked roe to hand her the stuff, which I did. Said his messenger would pick up the receipt later." "I thought I had a first-class ideology where TrumbuD's was concerned," she said slowly, "but I'm a suspicious sleuth beside you! Tommy, what have you thought about the thefts at The House? Doesn't this begin to hook up with them?" It certainly began to make a pattern tor Alma. She thought of Mrs. Denlon, a greedy woman who demanded luxuries. She worked a* an assistant to Marie Lcshinka, the chief appraiser. Frankly eager for extra money, a selfish, cruel woman, even though she was an expert at her work. "What do you mean?" Tommy asked. "Think, Tommy. Think. It's clear em"".h."
