"I know • 11 about your deal—I know you h were shoving the que^T for Rocky '—I'm not kicking about that, it's your business." I tried hard to digest It. Me waved a finger in my face. "The point is, what did you come Xere for? You looking to- make another tie-up?" "Well ... I was thinking . . ;" "You was thinking," he mimicked, falsetto. His voice abruptly switched.. "\VhatV about you and Griscomb!" "I already told you, Torchy. That's the straight goods." ; "What did you heist him for?" - "Just because I got sore, that's all. Because he pulled that gun on me for nothing. AH t was doing was walking near his place, looking—" "Looking for what?" "Looking for my girl." "And how does she get Into this?" Torchy, was getting louder now, iorgetting all about buttering me up. ' "She's zany,.Torchy. She causes me more trouble than a -case of the hives."

But I'd hav* to s«t going sometime, t tried to work my hands. There was nothing there —just a distant Umbnc-x—the rope had choked fT (he blood. I moved my thonl- ers; I could feel them, at least. liere was something loose in the 'hole arrangement. I was trusced tght as a mummy. But one of he spokes in the backrest scented o be dangling out of its hole. That ock on the head—it must have ent me and the chnir crashing now. I sat up ofT the chair as much is t could. I leaned back. The man against the wall slil! ieemed to be sleeping—Sieve, thai was him name, I rememberec now. I gingerly moved my arms down as far as they could go. Slowly anlalizingly, the loop of zope slipped down oft the spoke. My wrists were still bound ight, but they were free of thi chair. And the pressure was of my ankles. I sat down again am lifted my feel out ol the loop o rope— Footsteps on the stairs. Steve started. 1 jerked my ankles together t catch the loose rope—closed nr eyes. Steve was watching th doorway, I lowered my hea slowly, chin on chest, and watche through slightly parted lids.

"Torchy's still trying to find out. e thinks this guy was siu,,l..j >r Rocky." There it was again; Rocky and shoving"—counterfeit dough. What's the matter with Torchy nyway?" the Nose said. "Can't e keep these crums off the place?" The oldar man tapped his bud- y's arm. "Lei's go/' "Wait a minute," the liose said. Steve, you got the key to that oom?" "Torchy's holding on to that," teve said. The Nose started out. The older an grasped his arm and tagged ftcr him. I heard their voices angling all the way up the stairs. f WOKE up rig' away. I shook my head. I groaned. I stared iround the room. "About time," Steve said. "Okay, I'm read;- to talk," I aid. "Come here." "I can hear you." "I . . ." I hunted around. There lad to be some way to budge this guy. "I need you over here. I I've got some coke in my shoe/' I said quickly. "I need a sniff. Just a little snirT." "Who you trying to kid?""No kidding about this, Steve— I'm shaky as a bedspring. Let me ;et a pinch of it, that's all. . . . I'll tell you what—I'll let iu keep the rest. Sell it."
