Invisible

They were whispering in the corner of the room, certain that no-one could hear them. Everyone was clinking glasses, chattering amicably and unaware of the dark secrets being spilled into the brightly lit room.
Jonathon and Susan didn’t notice how close Henry was to them. It seemed that Henry’s presence was never noticed. He was so ordinary in this circle of extraordinary people that he was almost invisible.
It was usually a nuisance, but that night, it was an advantage that would set him up comfortably for life.
The pair never faltered even as Henry moved closer to eavesdrop on them more clearly. Heads close together, their whispers carried across to Henry. Susan was clearly agitated, wringing her hands nervously, but Jonathon soothed her with a few well chosen words.
‘After tonight we’ll be home free,’ Henry heard Jonathon assure Susan gently, ‘Everything is set, we can’t go wrong.’
‘But I’ll be suspected…’
‘Suspected, maybe, but there is nothing that anyone can prove. Just make sure that you are at that gallery opening on time and that you speak with as many witnesses as possible. By Saturday, you’ll be a very rich widow.’
Henry smirked and moved away, still unnoticed.
“Not that rich,” he thought wickedly, “A large portion will have to go into keeping me quiet. They’ll see me clearly after that.”
