A Romance by LOUIS ARTHUR CUNNINGHAM XXXVI JEG, from one swift glance at Lilith, had guessed it IPoppy. And with Avis and (Archer Fenn it was the same. 'Lilith looked at Gavin and saw !in his startled eyes the same deep idislike, reflected and intensified, that she herself felt. Only Gar>ret Kane seemed to be at ease. • to notice nothing amiss, to be enjoying himself. "He knew what he was doing," Lilith thought. "He planned this and he's enjoying the whole thing ; more than any play." | Avis took Poppy's white wrap. [The great black eyes went, from {her to Lilith, lingered on Gavin's iface and longer on Archer jFenn's. "Two I know," said the deep, throaty voice. "Two from the dead, unlamented past." She turned her charm on Avis, on Peg, on Archer. "Machiavelli here—" She gave Garret Kane Et halcful look, "told me 1 was going to meet some old friends —he never said who they were, and I have old friends from here to Helsingfors." "Legions of them," said Slash- er. "Scads of them." She ignored his interpolation— "He didn't enlighten you, Lesley, or you, Captain Wayland, about me, I'll wager." She took their silence for what H was. "No, he loves surprises. Comes from too long association with the theater. Everything, to be any good, must have a touch of corn about it." . She took the .martini that Archer, who thought it time to do something, offered her. Kane had a Scotch. "Good show," said Kane. Poppy spoke to Lilith. "It's been ages since I s»w you last, my dear—" She stopped, know- ilng she was on dangerous ground. "1 think you know how long," said Lilith. "But I'll be glad to i help you refresh your memory— Itt WH In on« at t block * tote In Westerham Mews — In the spring of 1945—" "Oh, now I think I recall." 'She was wriggling desperately, frantically. "Does it really matter?" "But it does. To me, anyway. And I have to know." She took them all in, but saw only sympathy and understanding in Avis's eyes, in Peg's and Archer's; deep bewilderment in Gavin's and devilish delight in Garret Kane's. "I went there that morning early looking for Captain Giles Wayland, to whom I was engaged to be married." "Yes." Poppy lashed back now. "Whom you stole from me —as you stole the part of Diana in Crosskeys." "It was no theft in either case. I won fairly. And don't try to sidetrack me. I knocked at the door of Giles's flat—and it was you who answered it," • • * ''THE room was quiet now, •*- quieter than" ever since the audience had been all through the drama week. "'There was a man singing in the shower — singing Alouette, that Giles used to sing, and you said, 'Captain Wayland will be disappointed. We were just about to have breakfast—' Words that made me believe Giles was there." "Butler now. Poppy was doing bet"This Is all so silly. You see, there was > Captain Wayland in there—but it wasn't Giles—" She turned to Gavin— "It was you, don't you recall?" "Quite well," laid Gavin. "I was singing Alouette at the top of my voice. Your friend-of-the- week, Jack BIsset, was there too, taking a shower." Lilith ran to him and he put his arm about her. He tonk over now and Poppy had no defense against him. "So you let her go «way think- , iof that you *a4 OU« w«r« UMM I alone! You smashed things for her and for him too. You really killed him by that rotten piece of deception. I brought you and Jack Bisset home with me that night from a party—and that waj the way you repaid me. And you fixed Jack too. He sent me hii books and stuff before he died. I think there's a picture of you among them—one you gave him long ago, with a warm and loving inscription." Poppy looked for a moment ai if she would brazen it out. Then she shrugged the lovely shoulders and turned to her husband. "We'd better .go. You must be happy now. You were always so curious about my relationship to these people. You know all about it now. Are you satisfied?" "Poppy," Garret Kane gave her his gargoyle's grin, "you'd have out-poisoned the Borgias. I'm sorry, if we must hurry away, but this was my reason for coming. I knew Giles Wayland and Bisset, and Poppy never would tell me why Lesley and Gilei broke off. Poppy seldom tells me the tijuth about anything, but I flatter myself I'm the first man she ever really loved." "Some day, Kane," said Poppy in her low, rich voice, in accents of deepest tenderness, "I shall kill you." If I don't beat you to the draw," grinned Kane. . • • * pOPPY went out to the wailing cab. Kane got in beside her and the car rolled away. "And that," said Avis when they had shut the door and gathered by the hearth, "was better than any show I've ever seen. You were all superb, folks—but I'm afraid Poppy won the award. She most surely tried to mesi up your Life, Lilith." "She tucceeded in part—once." She had almost tucceeded again. "Gavin—" She looked up at him earnestly—"will you burn that picture of her tomorrow?" "Tonight," he jairl, "when I go home—on a pil» of faggot* l'» tie the witch to > stake." He kissed her hair, her "P», lightly. "I love you," he whispered. "Never more so than tonight." Television— Ton ire, Tomorrow md other soft WMCT, Memphis. Channel TUESDAY NIGHT, SEPT.
