apartment. He went into the sitting-room; switched on the electric fire. He mixed a whisky and soda; sat in the big armchair looking into the red of the fire that was just turning into gold. He thought that life was a strange proposition whichever way you played it. It did what it liked with you. All sorts of things happened whether you wanted them to or not. You couldn't steer life. You could only go with it; play it as it came; play it off the cuff.
He began to think again about Merys Vanner; to wonder what was in her mind. On the face of it, it all seemed very plain. She was in love with him and he'd turned her down. So she had faked some sort of story and gone to her husband to put him-O'Dayin bad. She talked Ralph Vanner into playing what she wanted him to play, and now Ralph was on the warpath.
O'Day lighted a cigarette. It all seemed very nice and clear, especially after his conversation with her. Or was it? Vanner had gone haywire; was hitting the high spots; drinking himself silly, probably considering a divorce. And in the meantime had got back on him-O'Day-as well as he could by burning Needham's letter; by taking the seven hundred and fifty pounds. All this seemed obvious, but was it?
What did she expect to get out of this? Did she expect that O'Day would marry her? He grinned. He thought that Merys Vanner knew him too well for that, especially after what he'd told her in the past. So there might be something else to this obvious story. Merys, he thought, had a tortuous, peculiar mind. You never knew what she was playing at. A scheming
