INN OF HAPPINESS THE FINALE PART 24

INN OF HAPPINESS THE FINALE
The Inspector reached for his briefcase
And pulled out a large brown file
His face was full of contempt for the coffee
Which must have been so vile.

He handed Demetrius the folder
Whilst sipping at his drink
Not knowing what he was looking for
Demetrius tried to think.

Inside the folder were pictures
Of Lily taken years ago
Demetrius face turned ashen
The news hit him with a blow.

Chalky sat there speechless
Until the phone had rang
He rose up from his seat to pick it up
Placing his cup on the table with a bang.

The other two men stared at him
Chalky did not mean to be loud
Demetrius knew his patience was fraying
Chalky wasn’t good with a crowd.

Chalky's face lightened up
As he finished with the call
He had some news for Demetrius
But for now he wanted to stall.

Demetrius read the file carefully
Not uttering even a sound
Chalky wondered what was in the file
What had this Inspector found?
