Psychic Detective Chapter 27

When they had safely left the room and the door closed behind them. Jeff said he wondered what Callaghan had really looking for. He started a search, even though the forensic boys had been and dusted for fingerprints and any other clues, there had been none, the whole placed had been wiped clean.

‘This Blighter, whoever it is, is thorough. I have to give them that. There isn’t even a scrap of paper here. Apart from the furnishings, which belonged to the hotel, there was nothing at all belonging to the dead girl, nothing to say she had even lived here, no personal belongings at all.

I sat on the edge of the coloured bedspread.
I could ‘smell’ Margot, she was there with us. I opened my eyes hastily, expecting to see Margot standing there, and she was, well, a pale shadow of Margot, she was standing by the window. She smiled her most pleasant smile at me and beckoned with her finger. I walked toward her. The Inspector who was watching probably thought I was sleepwalking.
Margot pointed her finger at a chest of drawers under the window. I made to open the top one and she shook her head. I grasped the handle of the second drawer and she nodded and smiled. I opened it, it was empty, nothing at all. I glanced up at Margot who motioned to pul, I pulled it right out and turned it over. There was something strapped to the bottom with sellotape, a packet.
As I looked up Margot was laughing, there was no sound, but her face was contorted with laughter. I watched as Margot slowly faded away.
Jeff was already at my side. ’ Clever girl, what made you look in there?’ he asked
‘Margot was here, she told me where to look’ I answered matter of factly.
‘Here? Here with us, do you mean?’ he asked jumping up and looking around
’She’s gone now Jeff, don’t worry’. I consoled him
He had looked a little apprehensive. He now believed there was something in this ghost thing, but I don’t think he really wanted to come face to face with one.
‘Did she say anything Emilia? any clue to the murderer? he asked
’She didn’t say anything, she only pointed and gestured’ I told him
‘Well let’s see what she was pointing and gesturing at, shall we?’ he said pulling the wrapping off the parcel.
Inside were Photographs.
