Keeping the Story Straight
The two detectives questioned me all afternoon, my earlier evasiveness had caught their attention so now I had to placate them with truth.
I told them I’d been in the park, but I hadn’t seen anything and that I hadn’t said anything because I hadn’t known about the murder. I think the fat one intuited that I wasn’t saying everything, but I stuck to my story and without evidence they couldn’t hold me.
Eventually they let me go, that wouldn’t be the end, so I would have to be much more careful the next time I indulged in my delights.
