HU fc-ta. !_. rv 'rHE house was old. the farm worked out, and until Katy Elmo bought the place three years ago both house and farm had been abandoned for years. Katy's friends said she was crazy to buy such a lonely old place and often during that first mad summer of sweeping scrubbing, painting, weed-pulling and flower- and shrub-coaxing she thought they must be right. j) But she loved it. She had loved it then, and she loved it now when the rambling familiar old house and the ramshackle barti out back were the only havens she knew from the storm that had broken with Chris's murder. The police hadn't called Chris's death murder. She didn't know wna; they did call it. Justifiable homicide, she supposed. In their official minds. Link Murphy's death was murder and Agnes Jerome's was murder. Ted had told hrr this, reluctantly. Ted had been there, at the Flore, where there \vas so much to point to Chris's guilt, nothing to substantiate Katy's faith in him and Ted's faith in his friend. Only Agnes Jerome, who knew ?ome1hin2 and who, somehow, had let the killer suspect that she knew, had called Chris's death murder. tt'as that why Johnny had come to sec Katy"* Because he knew, too because he also was afraid the mm-dcrer knew that he sus- .pccled? Btit why come to Katy? She got out of the car quickly and slammed the door hard, as if in that way she could keep the fear from following. "Johnny thinks I did it! He thinks 1 talked to Agnes first and then killed her! That's why he ran away—he's a f ra id — afraid of me!" The thoughts tumbled over one another, maddeningly. She walked to the house, trying to sort out of her vague apprehensions. The quiet was right; il was always quiet. The sunshine and the lengthening shadows- She looked around. Major. Where was Major? And Deputy Donnel], who Scott said would be here? She whistled for the dog and, when there was no answering glad bark, called sharply, "Major! Conic!" "That you. Miss Elmo?" Deputy Donnell, no doubt, Katy thought as she followed the shout around the house, • • • jf^T the corner she slopped. Peter Donnell, his dignity wearing thin with embarrassment rather than alarm, was at the barn door-—on the inside. Major sat straight-backed and tali as a proud Prussian general about 10 feet from his quarry. "Call off your dog. Miss Elmo." Kaly said "Come, Major. It's all right" and dropped a hand to the big German shepherd's head when he trotted to her. Donnell came out, brushing at his immaculate gray suit. "You should be a trainer, Miss Elmo." he almost grinned. "I've spent half the afternoon trying to lalk my way out ol there. He just fixed me wilh thai baleful look and dared me." "Major is fiercely protective." Donnrll was not as young as Scott and less inclined to Ijc chivalrous, lie fell in step beside her with a s>i; rp: "Thon w'w di In'; i* jifoUxt A^liiii Juuiiw La^l night?" A premature chill ol the evening crept into her bones. "Because be was in the house with me," Katy said. She seemed to remember him prowling uneasily from room to room, but they were actions that could have sprung from her own worried pacing up and down as .she waiter), counting the minutes until Agnes Jerome would come, "It's something to think about Miss Elmo." Deputy Peter Donnell warned. "What are you frying to say?" Donnell shrugged. "You shouldn't slay here alone." "The slicrilf doesn't think I'm in any danger. He doesn't even believe me." Katy didn't look at him. Lcdbctter didn't believe her Neither did Dove Argus, and somehow thot was more important. "Dave Deputy Argtis," she heard herself stammer the correction too quickly and flushed, "feels sorry for me." "Is that bad?" Amusement WM in the crisp, official tones. 'I suppose not Many a murder suspect would give her right arm for a sympathetic deputy sheriff.." • • • TJONI>JELL pushed his snappy gray fedora back with a flabbergasted thumb. "You arc. a cool one," he said, half admirinRly. "iVo wonder Dave holds out there's a long chance you're telling the truth. I almost believe you myself." For a long time after he had gone, K.ity pondered on lhal. Ccr- Ininly circumstance and suspicion overshadowed the "long chance" but they were doubts that would not have entered Dave Argus's mind were it not for Chris. Except for Chris and the rc- sullant clamor, not even Henry I.edbetler, wilh an eye on his own re-clcclion, would point a linger at Katy Elmo . . . not for the dealh of Agnes Jerome, of Mason Avenue, who could have l;cen miinlcred by so many for so many obvious reasons.
