متن انگلیسی فصل

II

Joanna was quite right. The High Street was full of people talking. I met Griffith first.

‘You’ve no idea who committed this murder?’ I asked.

‘No. I wish I knew.’ He asked how Joanna was, and said that he had some photographs she wanted to see. I offered to take them to her.

‘Oh, it doesn’t matter. I shall be passing that way later in the morning.’

I let him go as I saw his sister coming and this time I wanted to talk to her.

‘Absolutely awful!’ Aimee Griffith called. ‘It’s the first murder we’ve ever had in Lymstock. I hear Megan found the body? It must have given her a bit of a shock.’

‘It did,’ I said shortly. Then I made a sudden decision. ‘Tell me, Miss Griffith, was it you who persuaded her to return home yesterday?’

‘Well, I wouldn’t say persuaded.’

‘But you did say something to her? ‘

Aimee Griffith looked straight into my eyes, ‘That young woman doesn’t know how people talk.’

‘Talk, what talk?’

Aimee Griffith continued, ‘Oh, I don’t think any of it’s true! But it’s rather hard on the girl when she’s got to earn a living.’

‘Has she got to earn a living?’ I asked, confused.

‘It’s a difficult position for her. I mean, she can’t go immediately and leave the boys with no one to look after them. But, of course people will gossip!’

‘Who are you talking about?’ I asked.

‘Elsie Holland, of course.’

‘And what are people saying?’

Aimee Griffith laughed. It was, I thought, rather an unpleasant laugh. ‘That she is planning to become Mrs Symmington No. 2. Of course, it’s mad! And poor di@k Symmington hasn’t any idea of all this! But if the girl is always there, making him comfortable, and looking after the boys - well, he will begin to depend on her. And that’s why I told Megan that she ought to go home. It looks better than having di@k Symmington and Miss Holland alone in the house, don’t you agree?’ she said, and walked away.
