"Don't worry, Hagar, everything will turn out all right, he'll look out for us. Wasn't he wonderful to bring me the cameo?" She cnme to lean over Hagar's shoulder. "What are you looking at?" "These numbers. See, engraved in the bottom of the box: Ten, dash, four. Eight, dash. two. And, underneath, .six." ' Stephanie peered at them: "Are they dates, d'you think?" "Might think so. except for this six down here all by itself. Or. it could be some kind of jeweler's code. Probably nothing important anyhow." She placed the cameo flat on one palm and stared nt it: "Pretty bloody process, getting hold of this thing—maybe it's Jinxed; like the Hope diamond." "Let me have it, Hagar. I'll try again to open it." "Be nice U you could. Can't you remember how your mother used to open it?" Stephanie fingered the cameo's surface: "She pressed something, -ineres a little spring somewhere in the frame." "A secret spring!" Hagnr crowed. "This gets cornier all the time!" "I seem to remember," Stephanie mused as she' pressed the frame experimentally, "that one ol these pointed sections must be lushed down to spring the lock, but I've tried all 12 of them and nothing happens." Hagar leaned back on her pillows, "J wonder why your mother wouldn't consider selling it when she knew it could mean the difference between feast and famine for her little girl." "My father told her never to let it out of her hands. It was their most important possession. he said, it would insure our future. Mother wouldn't part with it because she kept thinking father might still be alive." 'You don't expect him to ap- penr, do you?" "Oh. no. I've been sure for a long time that I'm completely alone in the world." J-JAGAR grinned at her. "Except for me. And rion'i forgel your friend. Charlie Reddy. he's very much in the picture, if I'm any judge." "Mr. Reddy—Charlie—is very nice," Stephanie said primly. "Olj. pot! You'd better open up those eyes and take a better look. if that's the best you can say for him! He's smart, he has a good sense of humor, and he's ncrish- ingly handsome. Wish there'd been somebody like him camped on my trail back about 20 years ago. I wouldn't be such a dried up old prune now U there had been." She wagged a warning finger: "Better look sharp, girl, and grab him before summertime comes along and all those long-legged bron/ed blondes start parading the boardwalk!" Stephanie's honey-brown hair tossed silkily and her blue eyes flashed: "Charlie's intelligent; he doesn't go around admiring legs!" Hagar glanced significant^ at Stephanie's underpinnings: "Lei me tell you something: If he's like most men, he won't even realize you have an intellect until he pirns to lake your rlh iraiiied." Stephanie tilted her small nose, hen her eyes slid obliquely to ingar and she broke inlo laueiiter. Hagnr gave a gratified chuckle, 'And let me give you a bit of information I picked up once under 1 haystack ." she stopped ab- 'uptly and stared at the carnco: 'lley! 1,00k there at the pin!" The cameo had opened In Stephanie's hands. Both women itnrt'd at it. tlagar spoke first: "What did you do? Do you remember what you were doing to it when it opened?" Stephanie's hands seemed frozen on the pin. her two thumbs were resting on two of the points of the gold frame at opposite sides of the center • « W J-JAGAR hopped ofl and leaned tensely the couch —'Iy over the girl's shoulder: "Don't move your hands, girl, until you get their bearings! Look carefully now: one thumb is one Ihe second point down from Ihe top, left side, and one is on the second point up from the bottom, right side. Just suppose those 12 points on the frame are numerals on a clock dint— you'd be pressing 10 and 4, Remember that—10 and 4." She raced to her desk, "I'll write that down, 10 nnd 4." She scribbled the numbers and handed the paper to Stephanie who accepted it without lifting her eyes from (he cameo* "Now." began Hagar jubilantly, "we can—what's the mailer? Oh! Your folks—I forgot lo look at their pictures. 1 was so excited." She peered down. "Mmm. Uh-huh. Your mother, there, very beautiful. Handsome father, too. Distinguished. Even with that mustache, 1 can see his resemblance to you. That's probablj why Nell never recognized you, yon look like your father's side of the family. lie looks like some pumpkins, badges and medals all over his jacket Military man, I suppose?" A clear drop splashed the picture of the woman. Stephanie grabbed up a corner of her skirt and carefully blotted it.
