Psychic Detective Chapter 10

I opened my eyes in my livingroom. The Inspector was sitting in the chair looking at me.
‘I found him ’ I cried excitedly ’ and I know what all this is about inspector’ I realized I was gabbling my words.
‘Great Emilia, lets have it’ he got out his notebook and pen and I went into every little detail, not missing out a single snippet, and when I had finished the Inspector jumped up
‘You mind if I use your phone Emiiia? I’ve got to get the lads onto this straight away. With a bit of luck we will pick this fellow up while he is still at Wantkins. Wonder if he is going to try the same stunt on them?’ he said
Whilst the Inspector was using the telephone I went and put the kettle on again. I realized my last cup was still there where I had left it, only now it was cold, and I felt in need of refreshment. thirsty work this ‘dashing’ about, I thought and giggled.
‘Right, Emilia. I’ve got it all organized, they are on there way, so if you will excuse me I will join my lads.’ he said as he walked to the door ‘and thanks!’ he added smiling at me. ‘I don’t know what we would have done without you. See you soon’

He was gone. The house seemed strangely empty. I thought it was better if I got
down to the business of my novel, I really had neglected it of late. I wondered if I would write a story about Johnnie some time.

I booted up mu Computer and started to write. It always amazed me at how easily it flowed once I got started and soon page after page moved up the sctrreen in front of me. I had no idea how long I had been there, as time flies when I am working, when the telephone rang. I was so absorbed I actually jumped at the noise.
It was the Inspector. ‘We got him Emilia’ he almost shouted down the phone ‘Nailed him at Wantkins. He was there just like you said. Seems he works there as a Laboratory technician, but doesn’t get in on any experiments. It would also appear that Mr. Morris was close to a breakthrough on an experiment which could be of National importance, and this joker Jenkins thought he would be in on the act with a bit of Industrial espionage. He intended getting the formula from Morris, by kidnapping Johnnie, and asking for the formula by way of ransom. Then selling it to the other firm,Russell and Brompton where you were. He’s got a thousand pounds out of them already by false pretences, so we can nail him on that, and then there is the kidnapping of Johnnie, which of course he is denying fervently. But, when we put him face to face with Sams, there is no doubt in my mind that Sams will blow the whistle on him, and then we have him dead to rights’ he said hardly drawing breath. ‘Emilia, we cannot thank you enough for all of your help, without you he would probably have got away with it.’ he added.
‘Inspector, it was a pleasure’ I said with feeling. Just to have saved Johnnie was sufficient thanks. To know I had ‘rescued’ him as I myself was rescued me me feel really good, I needed no more thanks than that.

‘I would like to call sometime when I have all the facts and tell you about them, will that be OK?’ he asked.
I laughed, ‘That would be fine Inspector, it would be nice to see you anytime’ and I meant it.
