And he was going again just as soon as the equipment was carried away He put it in my car." Jim said. "I don't remember a car being parked here the night of Eddie's death." "I didn't leave it in front. On the side street at the head of the alley. Talk can start easily in a small town." Jim Dunn said, "When Mark j Richards told you of Eddie's 'death, that was the first you had 'heard of it?" "Yes. And I thought of Ed Stone up in the tower room moving out the equipment. I—I felt "danger. I couldn't let myself go jthen." I Jim understood the delay In '•that phone call now. She had to 't«U Stone ol his son's death. He said. "Did Mayor Stone accuse your son of being Eddie's accomplice?" "Not right away. He was too stunned at first. That came after my husband got here and told Ed of the note. Ed just couldn't think of anyone else but my boy who could have been the other imonster. I'm sure he didn't even iiuspect Mansfield. Finally we got Dr Pardon who gave Ed a sedative. But Ed's wild talk about our •on worried my husband. And ithen the ball point pen was i brought in The pen with the j initials G. W. He had seen it in our son's possessor*, and the place it was found seemed to put Tony at the—the scene of the crime. But he didn't tell me then be remembered our son—borrowing something from the dentist's Offlct. Th«rt WM enough— without that" "Ther* was moref Jim «*" manded "There ws* the olay too bad written, there the fact your car was borrowed at the time of Drover's death, there was this ball point pen that was used to write Eddie's 'suicide' or confession note." bottle of poisoo Irom *• my son's darkroom — my husband found it in the glove compartment of the car. i sent him to get rid of it. Alone with my thoughts and with the little sounds Ed Stone made in his troubled sleep. 1 heard the sounds downstairs." "Mansfield hiding the money?" Jim asked. "It was Mansfield, doing something to the pipes with those wrenches. I wanted to talk to him. I went down the back way, just as he returned to his kitchen. When I knocked he opened the door and ue was holding the automatic. He spoke to me. He said. 'Your son has confessed and shot himself.' "I had never heard him speak before, except over the microphone thing. It startled me. Starled me so much that for a moment I didn't realize what he was saying, what the actual words meant. Everything was hazy for a while and then I saw he had put the wrenche* on the floor and was holding a piece of paper. There were words on Jt in my son's writing. The note's destroyed now, but I'll never forget the words, 'Sorry, Eddie. No more. I cant take any more.' "T asked Mansfield where Tony was He said he'd show me to come with him. He started to go out of the kitchen carrying the note and the automatic. "And I knew suddenly he was lying. My son was not dead. But Mansfield expected him. and Mansfield knew he would be dead soon with that note nearby. I knew It because I recognized that gun as belonging to my boy "1 doo't Know how it hap- pened, but i tore the gun out of his hand, and I shot him. He fell down. I thought he was dead and I started running back upstairs. I don't even remember throwing the gun away. But I remember getting the note and I remember burning it. Then my husband was holding me and I told him what I had done. He couldn't get the gun because you and the lieutenant were downstairs. We did manage to wake up Ed and tell him. He was doped, no more than half-conscious, but he agreed not to say anything till we heard where Tony was." Jim nodded. "It was he who insisted on your trying to get in touch with your son again and he said. 'Sorry. Margaret.' whea we found your boy did have an alibi." "He was sorry I did what he thought was his own chore." • • • J IM nodded. "As a guess, which we'll be able to corroborate with your son later, he was supposed to meet Eddie Stone —or Mansfield later. But he ran off to get married instead. That note, I'd say, showed he took th« dentist's things for Eddie, but he wasn't going to do anything more. Eddie probably gave it to Mansfield." •Why didnt you let Mansfield die? Why save him with your own blood?" "Because you didnt deserve to be the one who killed Mansfield." "You've come to arrest me?" "Not me," Jim said. "There'll be questions for you to answer later, but they wont be too hard on you." Margaret Hughes kissed him. "Thank you, Mr. Dunn.** Nancy and Jim returned to the car Her lips moved as if they were still stiff "It was a choice, wasn't it, Jim? You had to do it for Mrs. Hughes, for her son and for her husband." "That's better." Jim said "Do you think I deserve another chance? 1 won't be late for out wedding." The stiffness left her body and let her lean against Jim Dunn, find the shelter of hi? arms THE END GOING FISHING?
