When she had decided that^it was necessary to kill me. i Most certainly she had carrier! it with her from the moment when she read in the newspapers of i Marie Maloney's death--from poi-1 Ison. She knew then it was only a 1 matter of time until the police t would have the poisoned lipstick in their possession, and she knew I 'its analysis would point straight to her. For after all atropin sulfate. commonly called belladonna, is a common ' stock-in-trade with any i cosmetician who manufactures eye i viash. What Ravella couldn't have ,known about was the mass of evi- 'dence that had piled up against me because I had possessed the same poison. There were still a couple of puzzling points about the crime , when we gathered in Bob Lei-1 phan's office at headquarters and talked it over. One was why Ravella had reacted so violently to 'Jeff's decision to bleach Madge's 1 hair and use her as a double for i ' A.vis. We had guessed sketchily 'at something like the reality b u t ' only Madge was able to fill in the details. I '-The same thing happened lo Mother, when she was young. Madge said through her tears., "She was just an extra at Massive 1 studios when Lila Hampden died , remember? There were only a 'few scenes of Lila's last picture uncomnleted and the studio 'wanted to finish it. Someone discovered how much Mother looked like Lila and the faked the rest of the picture with her. She was thrilled--she thought it meant staidom. Instead of that it was the end of her film career ,No studio wanted to use her after that--the girl who looked like a clear star. You know Hollywood, always looking for someone new. someone different. "Mother made up her mind then that I should have the chance she had missed. She spent her life and all the money she made preparing me to be a star. She e\en kept " our relatonship secret at the studio because she didn't think it would help my chances to be known as the daughter of the head of the make-up department. I don't think anybody knew about us. only Jimmy Peters. He met Mother" at our house one night. "When I told Mother that Mr. Ha\erson was going to take the part of the secretary away from me and have me play a double ( lole for Avis--she acted like a crazy woman. She said it would not happen to me. the same thing ' that had happened to her. She said 'she would not let it happen!" Madge looked blindly in my direction. "That was why I came to see you. Miss Donn. I -- I thought Mother must ha\e been there, too. that evening. I thought she must have done something lo 'have caused what happened. It .was too obvious. Avis dying immediately like that . . . " \ The other missing sequence I supplied. The reason Art Clever had died. "They sat there in his parked car below my window a long time . . making lo\c. I suppose. And of course. AMS would put on fresh lipstick afterward. In the dark she took out her new lip stick instead of the one she had used earlier. And then Art must have kissed her again" "There was enough atropin ;ui- fatc in that lipstick to hr,\c killed half a dozen people." F.ob Leiphan said. It was Jeff, of course, who persuaded Madge that she should go on as the star of my picture, regardless of what had happened. It was cxcn her duty Jo go on. Jeff insisted, since her mother had lit- Iorally given her own life to gnc Madge this chance. "And that's the end of that." Hob Leiphan remarked when the ethers had left us alone. And then he looked at me He- caivc across the room and took ir.c in his arms And for us it was the beginning.
