The American Inheritance

The American Inheritance part eleven

The American Inheritance 11.1.1   

Ealee, Juan and Kirree go back   
to Ealee and Juan’s house.   

There is a police car outside    
the house.   

When he sees them coming,   
Inspector Jones gets out of the car.     

Inspector Jones: Excuse me, Kirree,   
can I have a word with you?   
Kirree: Sure. The same room?   

They go into the house and shut    
themselves in the sitting room.   

Ealee: She’s got hold of the house    
now! But maybe this is the    
end of her!   

Ealee and Juan await    
the outcome with great interest.   

The American Inheritance 11.1.2     

At last, Inspector Jones and Kirree                             
come out.   

Ealee is very surprised to hear    
what Inspector Jones has to say.   

Inspector Jones: Thank you for the   
use of the house
I’m pleased to say everything   
is sorted out now.   
Excuse us for inconveniencing   
you.  Goodbye!   
Ealee:    Er.....Goodbye!   

The policemen drive off.                                   
Juan looks at Ealee with     
raised eyebrows.    

Juan: What happened?   
Kirree: He gave me my passport back.   
Juan:That’s good. But what’s this    
Kirree: Let’s sit down and I’ll        
tell you.   

The American Inheritance 11.1.3   

Kirree has a wonderful story.   

It’s difficult for Ealee and Juan      
to believe it.   

Kirree: The Inspector said he couldn’t   
tell me all he knew
and that isn’t a great deal!   
Ealee: Tell us, please!   
Kirree: It looks as though it’s    
concerned with trying to launder    
dirty money from America in   
the Isle of Man and other countries.   
Juan: Good God! The Inspector said   
Kirree: Not like that directly,   
but that’s what he meant.   
Ealee:But why did they take    
your passport?   
Kirree: Have you got an hour or two?   
Juan: I think so.
