Against a strong, dominant personality like Norlh- cott. he would have tittle chance. "Listen, Jeff," she said slowly, "you aren't the family heel- You've just been worked into a corner. You say you can't make up your mind. Well, III make it up for you. You're nol, JcfT Frey, going to sell one single share of your stock to Lewis Northcott—or to anyone else.' Ho blinked at her.

And yet, knowing how her father hnd felt and how she felt, Gil had entered into collusion with Lewis Northcott. And for what purpose? Surely not to make money.

Then, suddenly, she thought again of the week-end just passed, ind of Lewis Norlhcott. It was now clear as crystal that Northcott did not do things without reason. Definitely, he had invited her on Lhe cruise with an ulterior motive in mind 1 . Suspicion swam into her mind. Why hart Dan Reagan been invited as well? The thought seemed to clear Kde's brain, set it Lo working again, swiftly, normally. She arose, went down the corridor to Reagan's office. He WM ritting nt his desk, his huge shoulders hunched over • "Dan, y she snid abn.iplly,*"whcre were you in Lewis Noilhcott's plans?" Reagan started. *1 don't know that r follow . . ." And then lie slopped. Ti wai useless to try lo pretend, or evade. under the hard bright searchlights of Edc's eyes. "I see," Ede said coldly, "that you knew he had—plans." He nodded slowly. "Yes, I knew ob, but at a higher salary?* Reagan's eyes dropped to the desk pad. "You seem to know everything. How did you find out iboul all Ihis?" "Prom Northcott himself. But that's neither here nor there. The [joint is that you and Jeflrey and Myron all knew that »orthcoll was trying lo get this agency- You nil knew how my father would have felt about a thing like that nnd how I feel about it. Hut not one of you—not even Myron who turned Northcott down cold—had the decency or the—the loyalty to come to me about it." Sh« laughed. a short hard laugh. * « • T>EAGAN drew a breath. There isn't much I cnn say for myself," he said, in a low voice. "Except that . . . well, I guess it isnl worth saying." "Whatever it Is," Ede said recklessly, "I'd like to hear it. It night, just possibly, make me feel bettor." Reagan braced himself. "1 see what you mean and you're abso- titely wrong. The way I feel about —about business and things like that hasn't a single thing to do with the way I feel aboirt you. You know I'm in love with you, God knows I've made that clear enough, But I thought of something else, too. Yon—this Is kind of hard to say—but y«i aren't sure how long you want to go on in this business. I thought that . . . well, that if what I hop« is going to happen does happen, we —we'd be all set.

You'd naturally have a—a different outlook." Reagan raised troubled blim eyes, said rather awkwardly, "Well, where do we go from here?" "I know exactly where I'm going from here," Ede said evenly.
