MERYS

O'Day nodded. "And you've got me more or less where you want me, is that it?" he asked.
" Why not? Quite obviously there's going to be a lot of trouble in the firm of O'Day and Vanner."
There was another silence; then O'Day asked: "What do you think you're going to get out of this, Merys?"
She shrugged her shoulders. "Ralph's going to do something about you. He's a bluffer, but he's got a nasty cunning streak in him. He'll find some way of getting back at you and of making you squirm. And that's what I want."
O'Day stopped himself asking her the question that was on the tip of his tongue. He asked himself instead: Supposing her scheme came off? Supposing the war between Ralph and himself came to a head? The partnership dissolved and the business ruined or half-ruined in the process? What was she going to get out of this? Vanner had no money except what he took out of the firm. He was a spend-thrift and Merys needed money. She had to have it. Had she got someone else lined up?
He finished his Martini; took out his cigarette case; lighted a cigarette. He did it very slowly. Then he got up.
" Let's go and eat dinner, Merys. It's a lovely evening and we can have a lot of fun watching the sea through the dining-room windows." He grinned at her. "I'd like watching the sea with you."
" You mean you'd like to throw me into it?"
O'Day shrugged. "If I threw you into the sea it'd probably be offended and give up its dead. Let's go and eat."
