"The Dark Lash" Chapter Two
THE BODY IS VANISHED
LeVourne, his assistant and I went to the crime scene. His assistant’s name was Chucklemod. John Chucklemod. He was a young, amateur policeman. He had only a two-month experience but he had great qualifications. He had black like death eyes, black short hair and he was as tall as I. He was walking with unsure steps and he was a bit anxious.
When we reached, the body had disappeared. It had vanished like smoke! LeVourne turned to me and looked at me. When he watches at me I feel that he is not looking at me but in my soul.
Chucklemod had a brilliant face and preferred not to look at the place the body was before but look for the dead body. And so did I. I did not do it to find the body but for not looking at LeVourne. I felt his eyes on me. Then I saw blood at the pebbles where the body was. I directed my finger there and LeVourne looked at it.
-Oh dear, did you believe that I thought you crazy, he said
- Of course not, I said but it was not true.
- While we were coming I saw blood on the pebbles and at the road. Are you sure she was dead when you left her?
- Yes of course. She had so much blood that her white dress turned into a red dress.
- So, there are two possibilities. The signs of blood I saw before were there because someone was trying to move this woman to the sea and sink it to the water. But why he left it there to move it after fifteen minutes? So the second possibility is the predominant. Someone killed her at the beach, went somewhere to find help to move her and vanish her. Now, let’s go to miss Mabely’s home to ask you some questions.
