The Gift Shop ON MAIN XXIX ^FHE voice trailed away for a •*- moment, and Jim waited tensely. Even his short glancing over the manuscript of the school play let him recognize the original of those words from the prologue. Mansfield repeated them: "W« grlT« you th«n. our hero, «. young boy . Who hails the granting of hl« wish with joy Who knows himself » princ^- lingr in disguise T«t wears a form all people most despis* Until that day wh«n granting of his wish (Commanded magically, a single swish Ot fairy wand) brings change* vast And he can take hi* plao* a< last „ , . With all the rest Unnoticed in the mass. . - Mansfield stopped abruptly, and he moved restlessly. The nurse bustled, hovered above him. "We're feeling so much better now, aren't we? Everything's just fine now, ten't it?" • • • *T<HE final service was over at •*• last No more words now for Otto Drover. He would stay there on the sun-swept grassy hillside with the dead for company. Joan Richards had her arm around Nancy, but she leaned more on Mary Holt for actual support. Jim intercepted them, disregarded the frowns of warn- ling which Mark Richards sent •'toward him. "Nancy," Jim said. She looked at him. She looked through him. She took her hand from Mary Holt's arm, and used it to cover her eyes. She quickened her guided steps toward the waiting car. Jim tried to follow, found his path blocked effectively by Mary .Holt. "She asked for you. And you weren't there," Mrs. Holt said. "She needed you, and you •weren't thert. Why did you do that to her? I thought you cared "I love her,* Jim Dunn said, and for the first time realized the overpowering truth of those words. Mary Holt's face lost its grimness. "There must have been a good reason." She did not say it as a question. "Yes. A reason. But does that make any difference now?" "No. Not now." There was both understanding and sadness in the old woman's voice. "She'll never forgive m«." Jim's voice was dull, lifeless. '"Never? A long time, Jim. And too short a time. I don't know. But don't try to se« her now, Jim." Dunn nodded slowly. "Would you stay with her then?" •Til stay with her," Mary Holt said. She started to walk toward the car where Nancy waited with Joan, then turned toward Jim again. "I want you to know. I've broken my promised word three times in my life. Three times, when it mattered, when the damage was almost irreparable. But Jim, a skin, a hard shell grows over such a break. I'll do what I can. And you'd better go get yourself some rest." Back in Mark's office, Jim sat down heavily in a hard-seated chair. "Some new things," Richards said. "The gun, for instance. No, it hasn't turned up, but we've found records of a purchan of a similar gun six months ago. By 3'0ung Tony Hughes. We've found a possible sourct of the poison. Photographic equipm«nt belonging to young Tony Hugh**. It adds up to too much for a coincidence, Jim." "It's too much," Jim admitted. "But how about his alibi?" "It's standing up so far," Richards admitted. "The Aspen police art talking again to young Georg* Westrtek. But so fir tht alibi i* as good as gold." "The coat—anything on that? "¥«•. That wa« eaajr. Tbt coat was part of a suit made several years ago for Mayor Stone. What's going on, Jim? Has ev* eryone gone crazy?" "No." Jim said, "That's ont thing you can forget at least" "You sound as if you knew something?' Jim Dunn nodded. "Yes, And I'm to blame for some of what's happened. I don't know, maybe it's still not too late." Jim's voice had lost its dullness, his eyes had a bit more of their usual zest and sparkle. He had a purpose, and he knew there would be a need for action. "You want to tell me?" Richards asked. Dunn shot a glance at hit friend. Richards sounded too much as if he were humoring an invalid. "No," Jim said. "After I eat something, I'm going out to the Mansfield house. I've got a little reading to do. And another thing. Mark. That coat, and the ice pick. When you come out later bring them along." * * • TT was after 9 that evening when Mark Richards came into Gaylord Mansfield's apartment, and Jim Dunn was in tht middle of the second manuscript. He had found 10 manuscripts, all hand written in the neat script, and he had begun his reading at the one dated the earliest "Brought out the things you asked for," Richards said. "How's Nancy?" Jim asked. Richards avoided his eyes. "How you getting along with your reading?" "I'vt skimmed through ont, and part of another. Mary Holt outlined the stories pretty well for me. Or at least the last ont Mansfield had published, and I can't see much difference. It's all about this sensitive, noble man, who was hurt, disillusioned and ruined by the machinations of a golden-haired siren who did not appreciate him." Jim looked down at the pages before him. "So far the second one is the same. Or, as they say on TV, only the names have been changed to protect the innocent."
