MERYS

The satin caressed her figure; showed it off to the best advantage. And the tulle softened the lines. There were black sequin stars scattered over the tulle. She wore gun-metal nylons and American sandals with four-inch heels sprinkled with little jewels.
Her ash-blonde hair was cut in the latest chrysanthemum fashion. Her flame-red mouth threw into prominence her pale, almost transparent, cameliacoloured skin. O'Day sighed a little. He thought that when they christened Merys they might have given her a middle name-dynamite!
He looked sideways across the bar at her mascaraed eyes. They were fixed on the paper but, he thought, she had a wide vision to her amber-coloured eyes. He thought she had seen him, but she didn't propose to do anything about it-anyway not yet.
He sat on a high stool; ordered a Martini. He watched her in the mirror behind the bar. She seemed interested in nothing but the newspaper. O'Day put his elbows on the bar and relaxed. He began to think about all sorts of things-about the business-if you could call it a business the way things were going; about Vanner; about the International & General, who were becoming a little perturbed because their investigators weren't doing so well and did not seem to be behaving themselves. But underneath all this, the background idea was a question-the question being exactly what Merys was playing at.
O'Day finished the Martini. He heard the rustle of the newspaper as she put it down. In the mirror he could see her slip her mink coat about her shoulders; begin to walk across the bar towards the passage-way that led to the dining-room.
