NEA HKVICf. WC XXXIII \Y/HEK CliarJic Reddy opened h is eyes once mo re, his II rsl sensation was one of surprise— thai he was si ill alive, surprise that, apparently, not much time had elapsed, and thai Tom O'Neill was sli]] in the workshop wtth him. His head throbbed with a regularity thai paced his heartbeat and sickened him with its monotony and persistence. Tom was looking down at him with a dull, expressionless face. "1 was going lo kill you, Charlie. I was going to kill you, Charlie. But L was too tired." Reddy suddenly felt a surgin desire to live. He struggled up onto one elbow and passed his hand exploring)? over his face-— it was still there, lie got lo his knees, then, and resled his weight for a moment on his heels. He marshaled his mental forces slowly as he stood up. The light touch he decided, would be best "Lucky for me, Tom," he saic thickly. "Glad you were too lired What happens now?" Tom shook his head. "1 don' know. I was standing here think ing: shall 1 kill him, too? Am then, I said: Tom, you're ioe tired. Too tired, now." "You killed Noll and Marti Falter?" Tom nodded. "Nell and Faltc and Andreyvilch." Tears over flowed onto his cheks, "Poor ol Andreyvilch!" "Andrcy Yakov Isn't dead Tom." Tom shook his head sadly, "Ye. he is. Andreyvitch is dead. 1 di il myself." Reddy didn't argue. "Why di you kill Falter, Tom?" "Falter wns a blackguard, h belonged dead. lie took my wif away from me. And he took m money away from me. Almos SI5.000 he took away from mt Five hundred dollars a month paid htm. Fifteen thousand dol irs and Nellie- And tic laughed I me, called me names. A drunk- d, he called me, and a—o silly id man trying lo keep a young ife. I'm not old; <Jil isn't old." Tom covered his face, trying lo uiftlc Ins coughing sobs. "Why (i i d you kill Nellie, 'om?" Hcddy asked it gently. * * » pOM bowed his white head like a nonplussed schoolboy. When ic looked up, the muscles in his ace were twitching: '*! did, didn't I?" he asked •hildishly. "1 did kill Nellie?" **Yes, yon did, Tom," Reddy answered soothingly as he look cautious backward step toward I he cupboard. Without taking his eyes from Tom, he reached down and lified out the other blue figurine. As soon as he held il in ]is hands, he felt a surge of excitement. It weighed more than the first one! Tom was nodding his head. "She didn't love me anymore. She was going to tell the police I killed Martin Falter, she said 1 would go to jail and she would get all of my money. She knew I killed Martin Falter because sh*» found the—" His staring eyes focused on the blue figurine Reddy cradled in his hiuids. He shook hts head chidingly, . "No, no, Charlie, put (hat bat'k. l"he other one i.s yours." Reddy tapped tlie figurine—it gave back a solid, thudding echo. "Put it bat-k, Charlie," Tom repented patiently. Reddy was wrapping il in a square of cheesecloth, "I'd beUei take this one, Tom. You're being very sensible about everything, you know I'd belter take along." "Put it back, Charlie." Reddy recognized a new tone in Tom's voice. He looked up into the muzzle of a rusty old .15. Tom held the bulk of the heavy gut in a steady hand. Reddy decided to smile. "Now om," he admonished qu telly, 'ou w.-mt this all over and done vith, don'i you? You're tirad, Tom, you want to rest now." O'Neill blinked slowly, then shook his head. "Not in jail. There's no rest in jail. Only black, slinking air. Nn breeze, mi ocenn. no sunshine. Nothing but air and loud voices. Nellie was going to put me in jail, and so I killed Nellie." Roddy's mind pawed frantically through a jumble of impulses: He discarded the strongest one—thm of jumping Tom—the man's band was too (irmly on (he trigger) His : best bet was to talk quietly and think fast: "Tom, I'm not going io put you in jail. No one in Dolorosa is going to put yrm in jail. We'll take you some place sunny and quiet where you can" '~YNBILL'S eyes bad begun to burn like brilliant blue nr-on .libes. He stnml motionless. His voice was still unhurried and positive: "No. I want to go alone. No one will take rue anywhere. 1 know where 1 want to go. And I'll go alone. Give me my blue lady, Charlie. I'll take her along with me for a tittle ways." Reddy held the figurine loward him, "All right. Torn. Here it is, take it." Tom shook bis head, smiling a little. "Go over there, Charlie, and get a sack from the cupboard. Put the blue lady in a sack." Reddy eyed Ihe cupboard, he could see a pile of burlap on Ihe lowest shelf. He turned :is if to obey Torn—as he did, he fumbled the figuring and il fell will hollow crash on Ihe brick door. He saw Ihe hand with the gun drop limply lo Tours side as the white-haired man stared down at the fragments. Roddy felt that il was safe lo look and \vhat lie saw on the floor widened his eyes. He glanced up again wfirily, but Tom still .stood as though hypnotized by the pieces. Reddy dropped to his knees lo examine Ihe stained wadding thai bad been scaled within the blue lady.
