With flick ond—Oh, it doesn't mutter. But as tor having to, I didn't, I simply saw no reason why I shouldn't. Brent is .a very interesting personality. V thought so when I married him." . "But lo—to crucify him in a novel!" ' Muriel slapped the table. "Oh, bosh! That's stupid and melodramatic. You'd think 1 was vivisecting Brent Halleck in Grand Cen- Irnl Station. Look here! Thousands of people will read the book. But only n handful could even vaguely suspect thai I might have had Brent in mind." . "But Brent himself will bo ler- !ribly hurt.

"Yes, it's time ] 'told you. 1 hadn't meant to, jusl ' yet. But you're forcing me.

Muriel smiled But it's interesting that you're so veil informed already. Still, Bren vould have talked to Chuck.

Somehow Alice brushed a Muriel's words and managed t meet the woman's cool, smilin eyes. "And you—you don't care? "Good grief!" Muriel exclaimec almost testily. '^Vould I be likef to talk this way if I really cared lien I said 1 was finished— jrough with Brenl—I mean I fin- lied, Alice. Finished in every ay."
