The American Inheritance

The American Inheritance part nine

The American Inheritance 9.1.1

Kirree comes down as the     
Inspector comes into the house.   

Inspector: Are you Kirree Crennell?   
Kirree:Yes, that’s me.   
Who’s this? 
Inspector: I’m a policeman,   
Inspector Jones.   
Kirree:  A policeman!   
What do you want?   
Inspector:  Excuse me, but I only want     
to have a little chat.   
Ealee: You can go into    
the sitting room.   

The Inspector and Kirree      
go into the sitting room.   

Ealee shuts the door   
and sits down in the kitchen   
with Juan.   

Ealee: I thought something   
strange was going on.

The American Inheritance 9.1.2   

After half an hour, the Inspector   
and Kirree come out of the    
sitting room.   

Ealee: Would you like a cup of tea,   
Inspector Jones?   
Inspector: No, thanks very much.                       
I have to get back.   
Thank you for your help,   

The Inspector leaves the house.   

Kirree looks worried.   

Kirree: I don’t believe this.   
He took my passport from me!   
Juan: You don’t say!   
Why did he do that?   

Kirree: Some nonsense from    
the Cleveland police.   
Maybe I’ve got a false   
Juan:How could that be?   
It’s ridiculous!   

Kirree: I’m sure they’ll sort it out.   
How about going    
to the Records Office?   
Ealee: Yes, that’s a good idea.   

Kirree goes upstairs to get ready.   

The American Inheritance 9.1.3   

Ealee and Juan are whispering    
about Kirree.   

Ealee: Didn’t I tell you      
she was strange?   
Juan: It’s strange the police came.   
Ealee:Maybe the Mafia are involved!   
Juan: And maybe not.   
It’s likely the whole thing is   

Ealee:Don’t be silly!   

Kirree comes down and   
they go to the Records Office.
