Ede's (ace was a little grim, reflecting perfectly her mood of the last three day» "Well," Reagan spoke with »o effort; "I've been thinking things over and I was wrong, that's all. I let myself get carried away And it was rotten of me even'to consider that oHer, after everything your falher did for me." Ede said nothing. "And so I'm asking you to forget it,' 1 Reagan went on. "As much as you can, 1 want to—to go on here, doing just what I've always done, as II all this hadn't happened. I know it's a lot to expect bul . . . well, that's the way 1 want it." Ede tapped her knuckles with a pencil. She was thinking of something her father had said about Reagan, something to the effect that Reagan was the best man in the agency, valuable. It seemed, in the light of what had happened, a colti calculating reason for granting Reagan's request. Then, suddenly, she shrugged. Business, no matter how you looked It, was a cold proposition. Heaven knew she had learned that much in* the-Vlast few days. Perhaps it was.^'better to reason coldly, to shake the last :vestiges of Stardust out of Bone's eyes.' 1 ; ••:-•"; ' " • "Well." she began, and at that point the telephone on her desk shrilled. ' It was the girl at the reception desk. A Mr. Cutler desired to see Miss Prey. "Mr. Cutler?" Ede said curiously, into the mouthpiece. "I don't know any Mr. Cutler." "He says thnt he thinks it's important, Miss Frey," the receptionist told her, in a muHled voice. "But he won't tell me what kt is'said. and I can't get him to go away " "Oh. well," sairt;Ede, "perhaps I'd better see him- Send him in." "I'll ?o." Reagan oflered. •. "No," said Ede. "I'd rather you'd stay. I don't know what this is but II can't be anything much." She was entirely wrong. • • • HE man who entered her office was vaguely familiar But it took Ede a second or two to place him. Then she remembered. He was Gil SummerfSeld's manserv- !t. She remembered him from that afternoon when she had faced Gil with the knowledge that he had been working with' Northcott to buy Frey * Company. Mr. Cutler bowed politely. "Mtss Frey?" he said inquiringly. "Yes." Ede stiffened a little. II this was to be an overture from Gil, she'd get rid of his'emissary in a hurry. "What is It?" Mr. Cutler glanced doubtfully at Reagan. "It's all right," Ede said Impatiently. "You can say whatever you've got'to say." Apparently satisfied, Mr. Cutler drew two pieces of paper from hi« inside pocket. "I found these on the living- room Boor after Mr. SummerBeld had gone," he said. "And I took the liberty of reading them, thinking they might be important. 7"hey seemed to* belong to y*u, so [ brpughtJhem over. I tnought you might want them." He laid the two scraps on Ede's desk. They were the remains of the envelope Gil had given Ede that day, which she had torn in two and thrown at him. Frowning, she pieced them t gether. The next instant it was all she could do to restrain a cry. Mr. Cutler, hat in hand, fidgeted nervously. "I hope that I did not do wrong 'n reading them, Miss Fray," be WE BUY AND SELL USED & NEW FURNITURE PHONE 2112 We're Proud of Our Work • Machine work • Woodwork • Maiulacluring •^Welding BARKSDALE MFG.
