Something plumb drastic. I finished eating and went up to the men's lounge. I washed my hands and face at the sink, nodding to the fella that was sittin' on the long leather bench. He wore a classy black-and-white checked suit, high-button shoes with spats and a white derby hat. He gave me a long slow look, letting his eyes linger for a moment on my pistol belt and gun. He didn't smile or say anything. I nodded at the paper he was reading. " I said. " - He grunted, still not saying anything. I sat down on the bench a few feet away from him.

He brushed it away and stood up, a kind of glassy look in his eyes. "I better be goin'," he said. " "I'll put you on the right road," I said. "But there's something you got to know first. About them two pimps . " "Don't you worry none. " "You won't have to," I said, "because they won't be there. " Ken took a fidgety step toward the door. "If the girls think they ain't there—" "But they 'don't' think that.

" Well, sir, it looked to me like he was pretty excited about something. Might get himself in such a tizzy that he'd keel over with the frantics. So I just pushed him into my office and made him set down at my desk, and I struck a lamp and made him take a big drink of whiskey. And then, when he seemed to be calmed down a little, I asked him just what it was all about.
