jRain on Timora
aES5=g==r ...J ...
by Charles Henry
The story thus far: Douglas
MacCauley, superintendent of the
Jones-MacCauley Exporting Co.
headquarters on Timora Island, in
the Pacific, goes down to the dock:
to meet an incoming shipment of
supplies from San Francisco. Capt.
Roche of the Celebes offers Mac
Cauley a drink prior to bringing
forward the new accountant, whom
MacCauley has been expecting
daily. When Denise Hampden is
brought in the burly superintendent
flys into a rage. It seems that she
passed her exams and made out her
shipping papers under the name of
"Denis," then persuaded Jones of
the home office to let her take the
fob. MacCauley finally agrees to
let her stay long enough to earn
her passage back. They are stand
ing on the deck when a tall young
man comes along the pier, greets
them cheerfully and is gruffly re
plied to by MacCauley.
CHAPTER TI.
HE tall, blond Englishman scru
tinized the feminine newcomer,
ignoring the question demand
ed of him by MacCauley. Hla
level blue eyes paid polite tribute to
the slight tan of Denise's eager, win
some face and perfection of her lithe
body.
MacCauley cursed softly. "I asked
you what the devil you were doing
down here," he rumbled, and his tone
was menacing.
Blue eyes completed their leisurely,
minute tour of inspection. Thin lips
flickered in a smile. "Have you got
What I ordered, Mr. Roche?"
The seaman chuckled, an interested
spectator to the danger-laden rebuff
that he had just witnessed. "Right
on deck, Mr. Christopher. Everything
you wanted.”
Denise felt that the interchange of
formal names was merely to acquaint
her with Mr. Christopher. She won
dered what he did on the island; he
certainly didn't have anything to do
With the Jones-MacCauley Co., that
much was- evident. Why was the
superintendent so hostile toward him?
Bhe instinctively knew that the an
tagonism was fostered and maintained
by MacCauley; for some queer, unju
tifled reason, she considered that the
Englishman was above such pettiness.
As the cafm blue eyes left her and
turned to her belligerent companion
the experienced a curious slackening
of pulse. Her heart must have been
pounding violently for her to note such
a difference—almost of relief. Not
desiring to guess what had acceler
ated the speed of her blood, she
flushed deeply. If the cool-mannered
Englishman noticed the blush, he
gave no indication. Denise was grate
ful to him for that.
Christopher leaped over the tafl
rail onto the deck of the schooner,
moving with the ease and suppleness
cf a panther. Smilingly, he took pos
session of several large bundles that
stood by an open hatch, examining a
bill of lading.
Arms akimbo, MacCauley watched,
a sullen expression on his dark face.
Denise studied him for the first time
In the short moments that she had
known him.
He was a powerful man, but his
clothing was unworthy of his stature.
Filthy, impressed Palm Beach dunga
rees hung like draperies around his
long, tough legs. His dirty white
ehirt was half open at the throat,
disclosing a hairy, sunburnt chest.
Beneath the fine weave of the fabric,
thick muscles knotted and twisted
over wide, brawny shoulders and back.
Heavy, black brows stood in a
straight line above his lancet-like,
deep-set brown eyes. His nose was
thin; his lips cruel and sensual. The
square that was his chin was covered
. with a rough stubble. He carried his
head high upon his shoulders, con
scious of his physical power.
Denise unconsciously contrasted him
with the fair-eomplexioned English
man. Christopher was nearly as large
as MacCauley, broad shoulders taper
ing down to a slim, flat-hipped waist,
lank forearms sinewy with cords that
rippled along the wrist and elbows,
disappearing underneath 'the neatly
rolled sleeves of a clean white shirt.
His skin was bronzed and weather
beaten, yet Denise was sure that it
was soft to the touch despite the
hardness of the flesh that was un
derneath. It was his face that held
her interest. Long without being
narrow, his head was crowned by fine
blond hair combed straight back from
his high forehead. His eyes looked
squarely and challengingly at every
thing before him, and Denise found
them exciting and strangely provo
cative of things that she had come to
Timora to forget.
Christopher strained under the
weight of one of the packages and
carried it to the gunwales of the
schooner. Resting a moment, he
passed It over the slight gap of water
to a swarthy, be-turbaned Individual
whom Denise noticed for the first
time.
Obiously, she thought, the man was
Christopehr's servant. But he didn’t
look like a servile person: there was
a reserved nobility about the startling
purity of his features. She guessed
that he was a native of British India
by the darkness of his skin and the
brightly colored headcloth. Like his
master, the servant piqued her curi
osity.
"Well,” MacCauley grunted, rudely
tweaking Into her thoughts, "let’s go
up to the office and see what is to be
done." He glanced about him and
raised his voice In a terrifying shout,
“Pearson”
The youngster came runrting out of
the long, low supply shed which
ranged along the dock. "What’s up?”
he asked, and then he saw Denise and
stopped dead still.
“Where was Harry going this mom
tog?” the superintendent asked with
out the ceremony of introducing
Denise.
“He went up the river to the
dammar loading,” Pearson replied.
“Did he say he was coming back
tonight?”
"No.”
“Well, he's going to. Take the
launch up the river and tell him to
come back here. I want him. And
you can stay up there until I send
for you.”
Pearson’s awe-stricken eyes de
serted their adoring study of the
radiant angel who had somehow- come
onto the dock at Timora and looked
at MacCauley. “Couldn’t I send one
Ot the boys?” he suggested hopefully.
“There’s a lot of work to be done
down here.”
“No doubt,” MacCauley caustically
remarked, glancing at Denise. "Get
going!”
The youth shrugged, stole a last,
wistful look that capturecf all the de
tails of Denise’s features, and obeyed.
Denise was suddenly twsre that tbs
Englishman and his servant were
gone. She caught a glimpse of them
as they vanished northward Into the
depths of the heavy forest that sent
mangrove and palm trees creeping
down to the water's edge.
“Who are they?” she asked absently.
The burly superintendent grinned
and she saw that he could be very
attractive when he wasn’t frowning
or shouting. In fact, with his heroic
size, his savageness of spirit was en
gaging. “The kid,” he said, toler
antly, “is the office boy. He might
be 25, but I doubt it. He doesn’t act
as though he’s dry behind the ears
as yet. Punks like him shouldn’t
come out here; this 1s a man’s place,
not a kindergarten.”
Denise, who was 22, resented the
implication in MacCauley's heavy
j&sting tone that to be young was
inexcusable.
"The other guy,” he went on, "is
Christopher. I don’t know if it’s his
first or last name. He came here a
few years ago with that slinky Hindu
of his and built the house on Donege
hela Hill. It's the highest spot on
the island. Since he agreed to re
sell the land if we found anything of
commercial value on his few acres,
we let him settle. I wish we hadn’t.”
There was a peculiar gleam in Mac
Cauley’s eyes.
He gestured to a couple of natives,
who promptly collected Denise's lug
gage, and after she had made her
good-bys to Capt, Roche they started
up the pathway that led through
green forests to the dingy but com
modious settlement of the Jones-Mac
Cauley Exporting Co.
"What'does he do?” she asked after
a while.
MacCauley shrugged. "That’s his
business.”
Denise tactfully dropped the sub
ject, which she readily perceived was
distasteful to her companion.
She liked Harry Lane instantly.
She was putting the finishing
touches on a luncheon that Mac
Cauley had caused to appear* from
nowhere, when a raw-boned, rangy
individual, somewhere between Mac
Cauley and Christopher in size, per
spiringly brushed through the screen
door on the porch.
Well, boss,” he said pleasantly
enough. “The kid said you had some
thing important." -He gave Denise a
second's once over. “He was quite
excited.”
“This Is Denise Hampden,” Mac
Cauley replied. “If you agree with
me that she can stay as the tabu
lator and bookkeeper, it's your re
sponsibility.”
' Lane tartly observed.
Who sent her out?”
“Jones himself.”
The lanky American dropped into
a chair and, without inivitation, made
himself a whisky and soda. “If Jones
sent her out, he said, after a satis
fying gulp, “then she can have the
rotten job. He must have had some
reason.”
“O. K.” MacCauley agreed. “She
stays. Let’s have a drink on it.”
Lane drank. “Do you think that
you should leave the kid out there
alone? The boys have been a little
disagreeable lately.”
“The kid can take care of them,”
MacCauley said heavily.
“Maybe,” Lane remarked casually,
rising to his feet. “Is that all that
you wanted to discuss with me?” Mac
Cauley nodded. “Very well,” Lane
replied, turning to Denise. “I’m very
happy to have met you, Miss Hamp
den. I know that I'll see more of you,
but until then, good-by.”
He hitched up his belt, from which
dangled a revolver, gulped down the
rest of his drink, and was gone with
a cheery wave of the hand.
In the week that followed she was
busy learning the terms that she
would have to use in the accounting
system. All were unfamiliar, and her
exotic surroundings lured her time
and again from her work. She would
stand at one end of the spacious win
dows of the office and look northward
to where a block of white rose upon
a heap of brown. She looked often
at that house, and frequently thought
of the man who Ijved in it.
And while she dreamed, MacCau
ley would sometimes see her in his
mind, and he knew that he could have
no more peace.

Denise to see the more interesting
