"So you told Ham Grieve thai Jenn wouldn't tjet her income till she was 30. She could have set him straight about that in a minute. She gets her money when she T s 21." "I considered that possibility." said Gil. "but I gambled on Ham's smoothness nnd Jenn's good breeding. I felt sure they never discussed money matters. Naturally Ham wouldn't say to Jenn,, 'Sec here, young lady! Before we get too far involved, how about your financial status?' Nor would Jenn sny to him, 'Better snap me up. Mr. Grieve. I'll be lousy rich when I'm 21.' " .Ede laughed. "Poor Hamilton." "Just what I thought," said Gil. "Poor Hamilton. And I thought I ought to do something about him because he looked a little seedy to me. So, one way or another, we Hot on the subject of my house in Bermuda. There it was, I. said, not rented and probably going to rack arid ruin. 1 was willing to rent it at a bargain and you know Ham Grieve is a sucker for a bargain." • "You let him have your house for nothing, didn't you, Gil?" He Iraocd designs in the tablecloth with his thumbnail. "So what? The point is that Mr. Grieve will be out ot town, indefinitely." Ed t e's eyes were soft green. "Salute, Machiavelli," she sajd. "This lunch ought to b« on me'.' "It will be," Gil (rrinned at her. "Waiter! The check!" _ And that nighl, over (lie extension telephone in her bedroom, Ede called Tommy Melbourne. "It wouldn't do you any harm," she told him, "to drop around here some evening. Just casually, you know." "Whoops." said Tommy Melbourne. ^S the days passed, smoothly now, without anything of much importance happening, Edo began to grow restless. She did not quite understand the feeling. But it seemed lo her that she was drifting, rather aimlessly, without any fixed purpose. Prey & Company was operating like a well-oiled machine and she could sec little reason for her presence there. Reagan was obviously capable of running the agency. And with Mr. Northcott—ol whom Reagan apparently stood in some awe—quiel for the moment, there did not seem to be much that Ede could contribute. " So during this time she saw a great deal of Gil Summerfield. Gil was an easy and charming companion. He was gay, without being » mental lightweight. He was a good listener; an intelligent and discreet confidant. With him Ede could relax and speak her mind. And there was no drive, no exigency, about Gil. He made no demands on her and, better even than that, he never bored her. Then one day the letter from Peler flood came. It was postmarked Reno and Kde smiled ironically and without bitterness as she read the businesslike lines. Ho had flown to Reno from Mexico. He did not elaborate upon his reasons lor being in Mexico in the first place. He covered that phase in a few vague words, obviously willing to allow her to infer »ny- thin? she chose. The m»hi point tie made was that he had established residence in Reno. Evidently. Ede thought. Peter ilidn't trust a Mexican divorce. She wondered, almost disinterestedly, ir Irene Van Sant were with him. then decided that it was im- rnnlerial. That evening,, the entire Frey family happening to be together, Ede seized the moment to break the news. OR s moment they were shocked beyond speech. They sal quite still in their chairs. Visibly dumbfounded. "When did this happen? I thought he was in Bermuda, writing," Jeff exclaimed at last. "It's been happening nil along," Ede informed him. "But I saw no point in telling you until now." "And you're not fighting it?" Jeff said, in perplexity. "Why on earth would I flght It' Jeff!" "Don't you see what H implies if you let him get the divorce? What will people . . ." "I don't give i hoot about what people say or think." Ede interrupted. ... . . , "Well, if you don't. I •do." He WRS working himself up. He seemed to feel that she had brought personal disgrace upon him. "We've got some sort of-—of position to maintain." "Jeff, you're wonderful," Jenn said. "The perfect paterfamilias." And Myron said, unexpectedly. "Oh, simmer down, will you? Ede knows what she's doing." Jenn crossed the room and put her arm around her sister's shoulders. "Listen, darling," she said, "we're not helping you much. I didn't know Peler very well because he was never here. But the important thing is, you .wanted a divorce, didn't you?" "I never wanted anything more in my life." Ede said seriously. Jenn turned to Jen". "H Ede's satisfied, you ought to be." "I still don't like it," Jed said. And right there Tommy Melbourne arrived for * date with Jenn, puling an end to th« eon- clave.
