"You'r* not like brother JefT, are you?" -Why do you say that?' asked. "Northcott looked direcll.v at her. "Jeff is afraid of me. You're not." -"No," said Edc calmly- "I'm not." "You were perfectly right In thinking that t could have invitee you here for one of two reasons,' Northcott said, "But you']] b* glad that it isn't bad news. I did. however, want to find out what you were like.** "And now that you know, Mr Northcott?" He gestured, with a slim long- fingered hand. "What makes you think 1 know? You haven't been here three minutes." "I don't underestimate your In telligence/* Ed*- said.-' "You've formed an opinion." A kind of gray smile flickeret across Northcott's face. "Righ again. And I don't mind telling you that it's a good one. You'r something like your father, Mis Frey. But not altogether like him. "Not yet, anyway," Ede salt "My profanity's nowhere near a picturesque." "Not even," he said, the gra smile lingering, "when the Morn Glo account gets obstreperous?" "Not even then." Ede waited a ocond. "Mr. Northcott, docs your ailing me over here give me the Sght to ask you a question?" He nodded. "Certainly." "In that case," said Ede, *Td ike to know if you're perfectly atisfied with (he service you get ram Froy & Company?" It was then that she * saw hrough the thin veiling of polite- less, the supreme egotist in North- :ott **I don't wonder," he said. "You know, 'of course, that I could lake he account away al any time." 'Yes." She nodded. "I know hat." "Suppose I were to?" SADIST into Ihe bargain, thought Ede. He likes the cat- and-mouse game. She shrugged. We'd be sorry. But if you do, we'll just lighten our belts And presently we'll get another soap account." *'Oh, you will?" Norlheott's eyes were not smiling now. They glit- ;ered from behind the gold- rimmed spectacles. "You think .hat would b« easy?* "Not easy. But possible." "You hold our business relatively lightly, then, Miss Frey?" He's putting me on the spot, Ede said to herself. If I don't lick him now, he'll lick me for evermore She compelled herself to Northcott's colorless eyes. "You're quite wrong, Mr. Northcott," she said, "I don't hold your business lightly. On the contrary, it's the most valuable account in our agency. But I don't think you're going to take it away." "Why not?" The power of hts gaze easily equaled hers. "Because," she said, as matter- of-factly as she could, "it wouldn't gain you a thing. You know perfectly well, Mr. Northcott, that you couldn't get better work from any other agency in the country." A queer expression came over Northcott's face. It made her think a gray wolf, grinning. "You're very confident, Miss Krey." Ede shrugged. "I'll back my team/' she said. "H we lose, that's just hard luck. But, t ot course, you're not playing fair with me." There was a wary look in North- colt's opaque eyes. "Just what do you mean by that?" "Only Jhal there's something in back of all this. Something you haven't told me." He put his hnnrls on the desk, folded them and leaned forward. 'You're very shrewd, Miss Frey. And you're a belter contact man han your brother. I like people who aren't afraid of me." 'TMIEN Edith Frey said an outrageous thing. It was the sort of thing that might easily have jeopardized Ihe relationship be- .ween Lewis Northcott and Frey & Company. But the words seemed to slip out involuntarily, as if in protest against this palpable lie. Thai isn't so at all, Mr. North- coll," she said. "You don't actually like people who aren't afraid of yon. You simply fear them. Because they're likely to—to— well, to upset your calculations." North coirs grin broadened, "Are you psycho-analyzing me. Miss Frey?" "Hardly," Ede laughed. **I guess I T m just being rather presumptious. And, of course, we're getting away from the point. Which is. your real motive in sending for m*." Northcott chair. The sat forward conversational his tone dropped out of his voice and he got down to business. I ad mi tied a moment ago, Miss Frey," he said, looking at her intently, "that I asked you over here to find out your strength- A better way to put it would be that I want to find out the strength of Frey & Company now that you're practically in charge of it,* 1 "Yes?" Ede said, and waited. "I won't beat about the bush," Northcott continued. "Frankly, Miss Frey, a couple of other agencies have beeti soliciting the Morn- Glo iccount.
