MERYS

He thought he would have to do something about Vanner. Jennings was right. Insurance Companies and especially big Companies like the International & General, did not like to hear peculiar rumours about the investigators who handled their business. He wondered how this stuff about Merys Vanner and himself had got about. Vanner, he thought, was a damned fool anyway. Why didn't he come and talk to him, C'Day, instead of drinking himself silly? Unless ... O'Day considered the alternative. He considered the 'unless.' He wondered if that guess might be right.
Vaguely he heard the starting bell. He did not bother to go outside. He stood there thinking about the implications of what Jennings had said. A minute later people began to walk out of the refreshment room towards the enclosure. Soon he was alone. He put the untasted cup of coffee on the mantelpiece; went out of the refreshment room. As he walked towards the rails he saw the red racing jacket with the white cross bars go past the judge's stand. So that was that!
He remembered what Jennings had said about unlucky in cards, lucky in love. He wondered what the hell that meant to him anyway.
A voice behind him-Jennings voice-said: "So I had to back five losers and let this one go. The bookies are paying twenty-five to one. Goodness knows what the Tote will pay. I should think a hundred. So I get the tip from the owner and I don't make it."
" That's too bad, pal," O'Day said. "Well, so long. I've got to go and get some money."
