“It’s a doctor’s prescription pad but it’s blank”.
“I see that Lena but what is Gloria doing with a blank prescription paper.
Is this the only one she has or could she have had more than one”?
“Don’t jump to any conclusions Clara.”
“I am not jumping to conclusions Lena, but, there is something fishy going on here and I intend to find out what it is. I wonder if Gloria confronted Clem about their relationship and if Jeffery knows he has a half sister. I left a note on her dresser that if she is off on Friday we would enjoy her company for breakfast”.
“Clara, she seems like such a sweet girl, don’t go giving her the third degree while we’re eating”.
“I won’t, I’ll wait until she is finished, smiling at Lena. I also just remembered something that is bothering me”.
“What is that”, replied Lena.
“Isn’t Marcus’s wife a nurse at the hospital”? In a sarcastic like tone, Lena said,
“Yes she is, has been for over twenty years, why? Do you think she could have killed Clem too”?
“Not really but, there might be some sort of a connection there”.
“You do beat all Clara, you have a twisted mind, did you know that”?
“It’s not twisted Lena, I am just inquisitive, always have been”.
“You don’t have to tell me that Clara, I live with you remember”. Just then the doorbell rang. “I’ll get it”. Lena said. It was Jeffery Bristol. “Why Jeffery, what a pleasant surprise, do come in”.
“Thank you, Miss Lena but I’m on my way to the airport, I will be gone for a few days and was wondering if you ladies would just keep an eye on my house while I’m gone. I should be back by Saturday”.
“Yes, of course, Jeffery, have a safe trip and we’ll see you soon”.
“Thank you, the house is all locked up but it’s always nice to know someone is keeping an eye on it. And, if you see anything just call the police don’t take any chances I would hate to see you or Miss Clara get hurt”.
“Alright, we’ll be careful, I promise”. With that, he left.
“Who was it, Lena”?
“It was Jeffery, he asked us to keep an eye on his house, he is going out of town for a few days”.
“Really. Did you tell him Clem had given us a key to the place years ago in case anything happened while he was away”?
“No, I forgot about the key”.
“Well, I didn’t”. Clara replied with a smile.
