He was now merely a thick- bodied bald man. "What got you sore? On account of what I said about your kid?" "That's right," I said. "In war I hilled men 1 didn't know or hate as individuals. How do you think I'd feel about you if you touched my son?" I leaned across the table, balancing the big gun in my hand. "I'll kill you if anything happens to him. I won't go to the police. I won't ask anybody for help. All your mugs won't stop me. I'll get to you and kill you." "1 was only kidding." "Get out!" I said. "Get out before t kill you now to make sure!" Willie Shad moved quickly. His wide hips waddled. At the door he hesitated. "How's about seven grand?" "Get out!" The door opened and closed and Willie Shad was gone. Joey burst in. I was aware of the gun still in my hand and plunged it into the shoeboX and fumbled the lid on, Joey hadn't noticed it. His freckled face was vastly excited. "Pop. is it true? Did Barney get shot?" Ted Gallagher's frame bulked, hugely In the doorway. "Paul, Pm sorry. I'thought you'd told, lim" ' "Gosh! He was the district al-l torncy. I bet gangsters he was chasing killed him," Joey said. I put my hand on my son's head, and the hand trembled as much as before. His necktie was twisted to the side of hjs collar and his shirt was lapping over his still clean slacks. I was about to tell him to get out of his clothes when he said: "Where's the lady?" "What lady?" "The lady who came while you were buying the ball. 1 said you'd be right back and she came in here to wait for you." "She have left." "That's her car outside." Joey said. "Go out and play with Grace." • • • T WENT through the connecting door into the cellar. She wag moving away from me, either toward the door at the other end leading directly out of the cellar, or planning to hide behind the coal bin. "1 feel perfectly ridiculous,"Hannah Riihn said. "Willie Shad is gone," I said. "You can come in now." I held the door and she.went first. ! She stood behind the armchair, one hand on the high back. "It's an awful feeling to be trapped," she said gaily. "I couldn't get out to pretend I'd gone for a walk whilo waiting for you. You were in here and the children would have seen me come out through the cellar door." "Why are you afraid of Willie Shad?" "Afraid? He's the most harmless—" She laughed lightly. "I saw him arrive and I guessed why. I was curious to hear how you would deal with him." "1 didn't deal with him." "You certainly frightened him. I wouldn't have believed that Willie Shad could'be so ihor-j uughly frightened." She moved I languidly over to the shoebox and lifted the lid. "It looks terrifying." Hannah Rahn covered the shoebox. She put her hands flat on the table—smooth, long-fingered hands with pink nails. "What is it you want? More money?" "I want to be let alone." "Then why don't you let us alone?" she burst out. "Why do you keep on torturing us like this?" Looking across the table at the intensity of her gray eyes, at the tautness of her cheeks, 1 knew why 1 hated her. Because I couldn't wipe out of my mind the kisses under the elm tree. Because after three years the feel of them was still on my mouth. "I'd like .to convince you that I haven't got it." I said quietly. Outside Mrs. Gallagher exclaimed indignantly, "Grace, how can you say such a terrible thing?" and Grace whined. "Well, ! heard it," and then Joey yelled, "Pop!" and the door flew open. "Pop! Grace says Dina shot Barney. She's lying, isn't she?" I put an arm about his shoulders. I should have told him right away. Told him something, anyway. "Well—" 11 wasn't easy. "Joey, remember last night 1 told you that Dina had gone to New York? She left for the weekend before Barney was shot The police don't know f where she's staying, and naturally they want to tell her about it. That's why they're looking for her." "Oh," Joey said. "If she was in New Vork. she couldn't have shot Barney." 'Of course not. .The police know it. They just want to tell her." Joey nodded somberly, thinking that over; and then, as if seeing her for the first ,time, he looked directly at Hannah Rahn. 'Where were you?" "In the bathroom, Joey." Abruptly he swung away from my arm. The door slammed and outside he shouted: "Hey, Grace my father snys " (T* Be Continued) Television- Ton ite.
