It seemed inconceivable, fantastic. Ames Warburton, however, if Ring's eyes hadn't played her tricks, pushed or flung violently over the cliffs by something so dark and swill as to remain unseen. In other words, could it be that we were fighting, not a person, but a thing'. And did this great Long Island estate—lush, green and innocuous in Broad daylight—harbor something Inhuman and hellish that came by darkness to haunt the Peacock Path? Just there I stiffened suddenly. Two soft but imperative raps had sounded at the door. I slipped quietly oft the bed, opened the door a crack. All my vague imaginalions, I guess, had me jittery. Sally Cravath stood tiicre. In something dark-blue and clingy. "Open it wider, you dope." she whispered. "What do you think I am. an eel?" I obeyed mechanically with, 1 presume, my moulh open. Sally said, smiling faintly: "Jim. please stop ogling me. And try anc keep the ivolflight out of your eyes. 1 had to come for—for help. 1 I dropped the offensive eyes. "T should think," I said, "Ihat an}' girl belonging to » plusji es- ablishment like this could afford a pair of mules." Sally extended a bare foot. She jlinked, as if surprised to find that she owned It. "Oh, I must hav» kicked them off in Uncle Marney's room. And forgot them when 1 ... well, flounced out?" "You've been flouncing?" I said politelj. * • • CHE perched on the bed, drew her knee* up, rested a small chin between them. "Don't be so humorous. But I think you'd call it that. Anyhow, I left that stubborn obstinate, pigheaded character in a hurry." I saw then that jhe waj Indeed agitated. There was a trace of flush beneath the lan-and-coral of her cheeks and her voic« shook slightly. "Take It e«jy," I Mid. "Look, Jim," ihe »aid. "I've been In there begging him to go to the police. It's obvious lo me— and I know darn well to you too— that we should have called them hours ago. Will you please tell me what he's waiting for after this thing happening to Dolly? A bigger and better murder, maybe?" 'We haven't established one murder yet." "Oh, nuts. Let's not kid ourselves, Ames was killed and Dolly half-killed. And before that someone tried to get Uncle Marney.' She locked at me steadily, shadows In her big gray eyes. "And Sally's lips thinned to a firm red line. "I issued an ultimatum. I've given him tonight to think it over. Then, if he doesn't come to lis senses, I'm calling the police myself." "What rtid he say?" "What didn't he say!" She gave me a wry smile. "And he said it all with his top blown. He bawled me out for 10 minutes straight and never stopped for breath." "Listen," I said, "you picked a bad night for ultimatums, that's all. Your uncle's upset and I don't blame him. It was pretty rugged out there, with Mrs. Dumont." "Oh!" Her voice hardened. "My uncle's upset, is her Well, what anybody who thinks the whole i series of coinci- to have his heat thing is just donees ought read." Personally, I agreed with her And I began wondering, a touch disturbedly, about Marston Cravath. Up to a certain poinl, protecting against the family esculcheon notoriety was laudable But beyond that point it became plain stupidity. Unless . . . unless Cravath had a more cogent reason for keeping the law out of this. "Mow." I inquired, "was it let with your uncleZ" about Ames . and Dolly? Himself too, for that matter?" "Okay," I said soothingly. "But where do I come in?" She hugged her knees. "I'd like it if you went to Uncle Marney in the morning, when he's cooled off. and tried to knock some «nse into his head. After all, Jim, it's up to him to call the police. ,He's the head of this house. It's going to look very funny to the police and—everybody else, if his niece has to s«id for them," J AROSE then, stood facing her. There was, between us, about two feet of floor space. "Okay. It'll probably cost me my Job, but I'll make your uncte a few polite suggestions." Sally Jet a moment pass. Then, quite softly. "Did anybody ever tell you, Jim OrUi, that you're » very nice guy?'* "Forget it," I said, catching hold of myself. "And go to bed." Her face, a kind of lovely mask was tilled toward me. Her lips were red, slightly parted. 1 lost hold. I burned up that two feet of floor space. Then, blue flowing thing and all, she was In my arms. For > moment, operations in lh« universe were suspended. An awfully short though. She pushed gently. The slap she gave forearm wasn't so gentle, smarted. "Now you," the said, "forget that!" And she was gone. (I. B* C«*U»u*d) moment, me awey, my It (ARK.)
