Everything! Jeff walking out on Liz and me that day at the studio after his fuss with Avis and threatening darkly: "I'm tired of her pushing me around, and I m going to do something about it." And the way his face had looked when he said it. . ,, ; "Oh, Jeff." I said again weakly. And wondered sickly what the expected me to do. He had just made an indirect declaration of has love. Was I supposed to accept it? And keep silent? Shield him by my silence? "Was he so sure of my love for him, that he thought I would do this? Was I so sure of my love for him, that I would? The attraction between us had been an intangible thing. An uncrystallized emotion. It might have become love . . . in time. Now I didn't know what I felt. · " My thoughts were mad, whirling dervishes. I couldn't sort them out. or my feelings, or my impulses. I could only gasp weakly in the manner of a drowning person clutching at a straw: 'The police, do they know--I mean haw they were killed? That detective wouldn't tell me anything." Jeff looked at me oddly. I plain patiently as one would explain the obvious lo a moron. "Of course, we're going ahead with it. Holly. Don't you know that all this has given us a million dollars worth of free publicity.' It will be the most talked about picture of the year." _ Liz Leydcn had said the same thing It seemed that I was always underrating that man's cleverness.
