Lena looked at Clara. “Talk about a third degree. I thought she was going to get up and walk out”.“Oh, Lena, I wasn’t that bad, I was just trying to get to know her”.
“Oh, Lena, I wasn’t that bad, I was just trying to get to know her”.
“Get to know her! She might as well have been in an interrogation room at police headquarters”.
“You are so dramatic, Lena. She took the room didn’t she”?
“Yes, thanks to my intervention”.
“I can always count on you to back me up sis”. She smiled at Lena. “How’s that meal coming for our next victim”.
“He’s not a victim, he just lost his father. It’s the neighborly thing to do. I dropped the temperature so it wouldn’t overcook. It should be done just about seven o’clock. And, don’t question him if he invites us in”.
“I just want to know if he got the autopsy report yet, but, I will be subtle, I promise”.
Jeffery Bristol saw Gloria leaving the Hayes house as he drove up to his house. He pulled in the driveway and wondered what was going on. Why would she be visiting the Hayes sisters? He didn’t think she could afford to rent from them on her salary. He made a mental note to invite the ladies in to dine with him when they brought over the meal. His father was gone and he was the master of the house now. It was just a matter of the autopsy, then he would have his father cremated and he would be on easy street. He decided to take a short nap and then shower and dress before the Hayes sisters arrived.
Gloria arrived at her room and started packing. She was so excited to have such luck. She liked Lena but she thought Clara was a busy body. Always asking questions but it would be worth the aggravation she thought, the room was gorgeous and free. She made sure the letter was packed safely in the first suitcase and then made herself something to eat. Yes, she thought, now it’s my turn, and smiled to herself.
