DOUBLE DEMON

`I want you badly and since it's the only way, we must marry. You'd like the job of running this place, and you'd do it damned well. You would make an excellent hostess. Isobel has lost all interest in that side of things, with the result that we are shunned as if we had the plague. We could travel too and rent a villa on the Riviera. You'd enjoy a flutter at Monte Carlo.
`All this to me is a delightful prospect. But I can't marry you while Isobel lives. She treats me like a boy. You know my father left me practically nothing. She got everything; she's rolling in money, and I'm her dependant. She's so madly jealous of me that I can't even invite my friends here without first asking her leave. She grudges me any new acquaintance I might make. She barely lets me out of her sight. You agree?'
They had reached the rock garden. Judith sat down on a seat by the side of a miniature cascade, dabbling her fingers in the cool water.
`You've put the case very clearly, George, but it doesn't seem to get us much further.!
'Exactly. We are up against a dead wall. Isobel must go. She's been ill now for months. She can't get much pleasure out of life. Years ago she tried to commit suicide-news to you, but it's true all the same. We can get a great deal of pleasure out of life on certain conditions. I shall help her to go.'
`How?' said Judith, still dabbling her fingers in the cool water of the cascade.
George lowered his voice as he told her how. `And when?' asked Judith.
George told her when.
`And you'll swear,' she said after a pause, looking him straight in the eyes, `that it won't be before?P
'Yes, I swear it won't. It may be later because it depends on a number of things. But it won't be before.' `And Isobel won't suspect?'
`No, I shall tell her a story about you. She 'll think it's you
