The nurse opened the door and pushed the wheelchair into the room. Daphne was sitting on the cama and at the mesa, tabla there was an officer standing.
“I would like to ask your patient a few questions” he cut to the chase.
“I’m not sure my patient is physically o mentally strong enough to answer any” the doctor said, while entering the room.
“I feel fine” Cas mumbled.
“Well, tu heard him. He’s peachy. Please leave the room” the officer dicho with a wave of his hand.
“I’m not going anywhere” Daphne dicho stubborn.
“That’s okay” the officer dicho with a smug look. He rotated his head to the doctor. “Is there some place where we can talk privately?”
Daphne let out a dramatic sigh and threw her arms in the air. “Alright, I’ll leave, but I’ll be right outside, so if tu try to do anything to him…”
“Miss, I only want to ask him a few questions” the officer said. Daphne gave him a warning glance and shut the door behind her, after following the doctor and the nurse. “Nut job” the officer said. Cas quickly looked up. “It is not nice to speak evil about other people”
The officer ignored that and took a little notebook. “I had a nice little chat with Miss Allen while tu were out. She told me some very interesting things” The officer looked up to see Cas’ face, but it looked straight. “But maybe tu could tell me in your own words what happened?”
Cas coughed. “I was walking por the lake” he started, trying to sound convincing. “when two men came up to me and threatened me with…a gun”
“What did they want?” the officer asked while escritura down.
“They wanted me to give them my money…and my clothes…and shoes” Cas dicho while his eyes flashed around the room.
“So tu were robbed?” the officer asked.
“Yes” Cas sighed, relieved that the officer seemed to believe his story. “I was robbed” he dicho in confirmation.
“Then what happened?” the officer asked. “After they ordered tu to give up all tu had on you, what happened?”
“I did what they said” Cas dicho obvious. “I was…afraid”
“Okay” the officer said. “They just left tu naked and robbed? No fight? No beating up?”
“Well, they did push me into the lake” Cas said. He frowned. “Is it over now? Will tu now leave?”
“One más question” the officer lifted his index. “How does Miss Allen fit in here?”
“She saw what was happening and came to my assistance” Cas quickly improvised. “But the robbers had run off already, so she doesn’t know who they were”
“Okay” the officer said. “I’ll leave it here. siguiente time I see tu tu better have some ID on tu o I’ll arrest you”
Cas swallowed and the officer left. Cas walked to the cama and crawled in it. The door went open and Daphne appeared. “How did it go?”
“I think he believed me” Cas said. “But I am not a hundred percent sure”
Daphne sat down on the bed. “I taxed my sister what she has to say to the police in case they want to talk to her”
Cas shook his head. “This isn’t right. I wasn’t robbed. tu and your sister have nothing to do with this. I don’t want to involve tu into something I don’t even understand myself” he said, sounding upset. Daphne leaned adelante, hacia adelante and pressed her lips on his, something she had wanted to do ever since she had seen him.
