A breaking story alert sounds on the television and they both stop talking to listen, Elizabeth feels her eyes going huge as she sees the body from last night!
Reporter: “Breaking news from the Garden District of New Crest, Detective Marcus Fox was found dead in an alley behind the New Crest Health Club. Police Chief Johnson informed us that the death is under investigation but it appears to have been a homicide….”
Matthew turns to look at his sister: “Hey, weren’t you there last night?”
Elizabeth feels sick to her stomach and stares at the screen in horror till she hears her brother talking.
Elizabeth: “What? No, I decided to look somewhere else. Um…. I just remembered I need to do some homework.”
Matthew watches his sister walk away with a confused look on his face. She never did homework! The only reason she wasn’t failing was because their father donated so much money to the school.
