This woman was asking her to change Albert's grades from failing to passing. "And if 1 don't?" Miss Johnson managed at last. Tben she an- r.vered her own question. "I suppose you'll use the—the whip that you hold over me?" Mrs. Symes smiled faintly It was not a pleasant smile. "Well," she said. "I might give you a (lick with ft. I doubt if I'd show my whole hand though, just because of this. I heard that golden goose story years ago. But a hint, here and there, especially to a couple of catty old girls I know might start a bit of—er—specu- lation, shall we say? And you wouldn't like that, would you dearie?" Mrs Symes' top? wa? getting more and more unpleasant. Miss Johnson remained silent. "No. you wouldn't," said Mrs. Symes. "Well then, you Just behave yourself and do what I say and nothing will happen. But one thing's for sure. I'm not having that kid of mine wasting his time in grammar school for the rest of his natural life, just because you've got a grudge against me and you're too persnickety to juggle a few figures." For another moment Miss Johnson could say nothing Bnl then, suddenly, sh« heard her own voice. "I won't do it." The words came out in a swift rushing whisper. She couldn't believe her cars. Mrs. Symes arose, looking at her with a grim tolerance. "That's what you say now. But you're just sore and upset. You upset pretty easy, I've noticed. You'll think different, though, alter you've slept on it And maybe I did take you by surprise, sort of. So I'll give you a little time. But if Albert isn't home with a better report after school tomorrow, I'll have something to say. And"—she paused, meaningly—"I don't mean to you. Now you needn't bother to come down to the door with me. I'll find my own way out" Long after Mrs. Symes heavy tread had ceased to sound on the stairs Miss Johnson sat on in % kind of furious daze, staring at the pattern of the nig »nd yet not i precisely seeing it. Finally, however, she lifted her head. She was unaware of it. But a queer flinty expression had come into Miss Johnson's usually- placid blue eyes. • • • f}NE by one the lights of the house went out, untiJ at last , only a single light remained I But this stayed on very late, burning hotly beneath its attractive green shade. A listener just outside the door of that particular room could have heard long successions of faint metallic clickings, punctuated at frequent intervals by short dull thuds. Occasionally these noises ceased, to be superseded by the soft pad of pacing feet. But the pacing never went on for long, and the clickings and thud- dings would follow it again immediately. But there was no listener at the door and the activity within was not sufficiently loud to disturb the rest of th« house. Miss Johnson worked long, and in peace. At the eventual end, she expected to be very tired. Surprisingly, she wasn't. Even more surprisingly, her head was clear and she felt almost icily calm. That same sense of calmness was still with her when ihc left the school next day. On the steps of the building she stopped and looked into her handbaf. An entirely unnecessary procedure. The thing was there, ot course, as she had known it would be. Since a certain moment that loomed blackly in her memory, she had been very careful of her handbag. On the street she had a sudden desire to hurry. She suppressed it instantly. There was no need for hurry. Beyond that haste, any show of urgency, might tend to dissipate .ier serene, rather detached attitude. So she forred leisureliness into her stride Indeed she practically dawdled, wondering at herself a* she did so. It was strange, she thought, how a definite decision, no matter how tortuously reached, could sweep the mind clean of doubt and fear. Then something that seemed coincidental happened. Andy Grayle. the police chief, went by in the town'i official car. HPHIS, In itself, was no extraordinary occurrence. Andy was fairly ubiquitous and she often met him. But to have him pass at thti specific time, after he had bulked so largely in her thoughts for the past twenty-odd hours, faintly suggested divination. But whether on her part or his. she did not know. Nor did she know if the tight of him strengthened of weakened her in her resolve. The police chief called a greeting with a grin on his hug« rubicund face. Miss Johnson waved back. For a single moment she bad to fight down an impulse to change the wave into a beckoning gesture that would have brought him to the curb. Miss Johnson won that tiny battle. Her hand limply fluttered in greeting. Andy passed on, continuing his tour of the city. And Miss Johnson went on, pleased at having quashed her impulse. It was far better, she decided, to do this in lust the way she had planned, by herself and for herself. Andy Grayl* might have to come into in* picture later, of cours*. But right now Miss Johnson had no need of him.
