Above the spiky mass of snapdragons, colorful as Joseph's coat, the leaves o{ the mock orang* bushes piled each other iike hills of slick green pebbles. Along the opposite hedge of eu- ''. genia, crisp white daisies vi, brated to the thin silver light, and dark as dried blood on the Jtncc splashed the early roses. A "manicured garden." Peter's words.

She givt money ud target the ***M t, NfA SC««C£. ht *hoJ« experience. But five or ten dollars was nothing, Gus said. It would have to be a dramatic amount, « beau geste so that there should be expiation in the giving and dazzled fratitude !n the receiving. But she would never be able to explain this need to Gus. How could she, when she was not even able fo explain it to herself? If only she had some money of her own, a savings account, or a lump sum cached away. She thought of the possessions which she could turn into cash. Her mink stole — but Gus had given her .that as a birthday present last year. Her jewelry—pins, earrings, watch, necklace, rings— all were his presents and she wore them frequently; he took pride in her wearing them and would notice if one were missing. She thought of selling the star sapphire pin he had given her, which she supposed was her most valuable single piece. She could s«y that she had lost it. But then Gus would report the loss to the insurance company and she could never stand up under the grilling of investigators, A ND then she remembered that she did have something of her own. A diamond lavaliere that had belonged to » great-aunt on her father's side. Her parents had presented it to her with embarrassing pomp on her list birthday. It was out of fashion »nd she had kept it in the vault, thinking that one day she would have the jewels reset. That was something Gus would never miss, if he remembered that she had it at all, and if he should ever question her about it, she would feel justified in admitting that she had sold it tor reasons of her own, since it was not something he had given her •or even a thing sh« bad OUT OUR WA By J. *.

Come In *oonl during their marriage. The pendant was on a platinum chain, as she recalled, and the center diamond was large and pear-shaped, though the tiny emeralds around it were mere chips. She wondered how much it would bring. Fortunately, Gus had left the car for her because he had expected her to shop for his. shorts. This she considered a stroke of luck; more than that, an omen auguring the success of her scheme. In fact, the motif of the day had changed from frustrating accident to purposeful integration. At the bank, in the bottom of a safety deposit box was the tiny manila envelope she sought. She unclasped it and slid the pendant to her palm. The fine-linked chain curled limply around the beveled edge inside of which the emeralds were muddy and chipped. The diamond itself was clear and many- faceted but smaller than she had pictured it, and somehow sad, a businesslike piece bought perhaps more as an investment or a testament of improved position than to enhance the throat of the beloved. • • * rVF her great-aunt Mary, Hs orig- ^ inal owner, she had only the dimmest recollection. A little old lady who wore black dresses and always looked as though «ne needed a g^ood dusting. Th« jewel winked up .at her with no more appeal than > piece of rock-candy, cutting short her reminiscence. She slipped the necklace back into its envelope, shoved rt'fnto her purse, dumped the papers pell-mell into the box, waved the curtain aside, and made bold sounds with her heels. In Beverly Hills, she parked in front of the stationery store which she regularly patronized, and walked the two blocks to Chagiantz, the jeweler. The store front of Chagiantz's was a solid slab of black marble. Two little oblongs at window displayed > few wares hung on arthritic knuckles of driftwood. After the sunlight, the interior was at first totally dark except for tmall illuminated oblong I showcases along the left wall in which Jennet found herself absently looking for tropical' fish. <.T« Be
