Ede stopped involuntarily as she looked al the face grains at her from the pillows at the high, four-poster bed. It was the face of a mummy, dried, shrunken, twisted. Blue veins siood out starkly at the temples. The high cheekbones seemed •bout to burst through the yellowed, almost transparent skin. Only the eyes were familiar. Still pale-gray and sardonic, they glowed uncompromisingly and challcngingly Irom de«p dark sockets. "So you got here, did you, Ede?" Cornelius Frey's voice was 3. high- pitched whisper escaping from between cracked lips. "I'm almost glad to see yon. Well, gel out, get out, and'leave us in peace." ' Ed« started, then saw that the last remark had been addressed to the nurse. The nurse smiled tolerantly and departed, with a swish of starched skirls. "Come over here, Ede," Cornelius commanded. "Sit down where I can se* you.** Ede crossed the room, kissed her father on the forehead and took one of Cornelius's withered hands in her own. It was incredibly hard and bnriv. liki. a claw 1950 b, NEA bnict, he. "How are you, Dad?" she faid. "How am I?" The sardonic eyes gleamed up at her. "That's n tool' question. H ow would anyone be hen he's dying?" Ede forced a smile. "Dying? You, Dad? Don't be silly. They can't kill you." ' "They can't, eh! That's what thought for 68 years. 1 was «ong. They've got me this lime nd don't you forget it, Ede Frey. But I'll not die before 1 say what I've got to say lo you." • * • JgDE drew up a chair and »al facing him. For a long moment his eyes burned into hers. "You look tired," he decided, at last. "And not especially happy." "I'm only tired from the trip, Dud," Ede said. "And I'm happy enough." "Don't lie to me. I've got eyes, haven't 17 You still married to that insolent young puppy?" "Still married, Dad." "Wcfl, how do you get along? On the pittance you have, J suppose. I've seen no more writings by him." "We manage. And Peter's always trying. He'U come through again, all right." "I don't believe it. But I didn't haul you all the w;iy up here to talk about him." The pale-gray eyes lit up with amusement. "You don't know why I sent lor you, of course. I suppose you think, now I'm dying, that it was lo pamper you'by forgiving-you for going against my wishes." There was something behind this questioning, Ede knew. Old Cornelius Frey wasn't interested in Peter, nor in Peter's success as a playwright. He was probably not even concerned very much with the amount Ede and Peter had to live on. ' F-de knew that her father had not sent for her to forgive her There was some other reason. A reason that Ede did not understand. Kde said slowly, -I didnt want to go against you that time, Dad. Dut I honestly did lov« Peter Flood." "Bah! Calf lov«. But you've paid for it. I can see it in your face. Well, I'm not going to forgive you. 1 never forgive." "I know you don't," Ede smiled. "You're really an old devil, Dad. A wicked man." 'You're damn right I'm a wicked man," rasped old Cornelius, a gur- Ble of satisfaction in his voice. "I've hail a lot of fun bring wicked. I so t what I wanted out of this fool world and I mad* a lot of money and 1 enjoyed doing it. And I swore that that jackanapes you married would never get any good out of my money. But now"—all al once th* bantering, almost gleeful note left hi« voice—"I don't know. I don't know at all." The voice trailed away. • * • UDE leaned forward in her chair. "Listen. Dad, if anything'! worrying you, (ell me. I'll do anything you ask." —' 'All right." Life teemed to corn* back into Cornelius's voice. "Remember you said that. Now I'll tell y.-ju something, Ede. I had them send for you because you're the only one of my children who isn't a fool." "Oh,' Father—" Ede began. He held up a hand. "I know what I'm talking about. Jeffrey'! a nervous old fuddy-duddy. Fuss- J.-jg a;id twittering sboui. He doesn't earn hah" what I pay, him at the agency. And Myron goes around with his head in the clouds. 1 riun't know what he wauls and he doesn't either. I made a place for him in the business because what else could I do with him? As for Jenn . . . well, she's'.scarcely nfor£ Ihaii a child. She may have brains. 1 don't know. I haven't seen any signs of them yet and I won't be around long enough to find out." "I'll lake care ol her," Ede said: "Of her? Ha!" Cornelius laughed shakily. "YOu don't seem to realize it, my dear, but you're going to take care of the whole darn bunch of them." Ede almost jumped. "Dad! What on earth do you mean?"
