"You were inot here when Dunn and I came •by yesterday evening —or last night. The first time, I mean. Where were you?" "Out .for a walk," Mayor Stone saJcL "You weren't looking for your son?" Stone buried his face in his hands. "It doesn't matter now, does it? All these years—wasted. Eddie would be alive now if I ;had put him in a home. But—I .•couldn't. Yes, I was out looking ifor Eddie. That is it. I was look- jing for Eddie." It did not ring 'true, but for the moment it .seemed the father was beyond jc-aring. j Jim Dunn slid in a question. !"Your son was very interested in if airy stories?" "Yes. He lived in a world of ; his own. A strange and wonder- iful world, where anything—any- ithing good could happen." "If I remember my fairy stories," Jim persisted, "there is •also a considerable amount of violence, or killing and of death." "Words," Mayor Stone laid iSlowly. "Words." Magic potions and killing, happy endings tnd cruel torture. Mark Richardi got a quei- tion in. "Your son was quite friendly with Tony Hughes, Jr.?" Chief Hughes gave no sign of attaching any meaning to the question, but his wife did not have such complete facial control. Her generoui mouth tightened. "Friendly?" Stone repeated. "Perhaps that's the way to put it. Young Tony was wonderful to Eddie and my boy idolized him. I think they would h«v* done anything for «*ch othtr. But of course they haven't seen at MO* «tb«r "I believe," Jim put in, "that young Tony wrote a class play. About fairies, wasn't it?" "Yes. Eddie enjoyed it thoroughly. But that was some years ago. Eddie would have forgotten by now. I think." Stone raised his head and looked directly at Mr. and Mrs. Hughes. There seemed to be a challenge in that look. A challenge or a threat. Richards said, "Have you been able to get in touch with your son yet, Chief Hughes?" "No. He may have called our home, though. I'll try to get in touch a little later." Mayor Stone said firmly, "Now. Please." Hughes glared at his friend Ed Stone. The mayor went on quickly to explain, "In police work, anything that can be cleared up is a great step forward." Chief Hughes shrugged. "I'll put through a call." • • * 'THE call to Denver went through, and one* again it was George Westrick who answered. "My son up yet? This is Mr. Hughes again." There was only a slight pause. "Gosh, Mr. Hughes," the young voice said, "I'm afraid you're going to hate me for this. But I promised Tony. ! told him I wouldn't let anyone know until this morning. And, well, at a time like this I had to keep my word to him." "Where is Tony?" Hughes demanded. Margaret Hufhei wai on her feet now, itrainini to hear the thin voice coming over the wire. "He's over In Aspen, Mr. Hughes. He—" "Aspen? What's he doing over there?" There wai • very audible gulp from tht Denver end of the wirt. 'He went over there to get mar- ttt got oft tb« t>u* lika I told you, and borrowed my car. He drove right over to Aspen and got married last night." Chief Hughes let the receiver fall back onto the hook. "What is it?" Mrs. Hugh«s demanded, "Tony ran off and got married," Chief Hughes said grimly. His face softened a trifle. "What do you know? Tony ran off and got married." Mrs. Hughes swayed, moaned softly. She would have fallen if her husband had not caught her. TIM followed Mark toward Vern " Bruce's. "You wouldn't think," Richards said, "that Mrs. Hughes ifi the fainting type. Guess she is though, because that's twice she's done it that we know of. Seemed to be a big shock to find out about the marriage." "Yes. It was a shock," Jim said: "But it seems Mrs. Hughes is rather unpredictable. She simply dotes on her son, and yet she says she doesn't even have a copy of the class play he wrote. Tell me why not, and tell me why Mansfield had a phone and I'll be a little happier. Maybe." Mark went on with his own line of thought "We found out a few things anyway. We know Eddie was around home until seven last night, probably a little later. So it would b« about dark when he went out to meet his partner or director. And Eddie had keys to the back doors. Jim. So we know now how the person who shot Mansfield got in and out. And the keys are still missing. That means we'll have to go over Bruce's place carefully." "You think he might qualify as the—partner?" "He lives nearby," Richards pointed out. "He would be in • position to know all about Eddie Stone He could even use his pets to get acquainted with the boy. Th-n there's that roll of heavy cord we found. And you can't get away from his knowing there was something wrong at Mansfield's before anyone else." "Don't forget th« cats," Jim said.
