The glasses rested on top of the book as if removed and placed there to rub tired eyes.
They were gold rimmed and varifocal rather than bifocals, but other than that they were pretty nondescript.

‘Those are not my father’s glasses,’ Miriam stated.
Mark spun on his heel as the officer responded
‘Are you sure Miss? ‘
‘Of course I’m sure! He had laser surgery last Christmas and had no need for them.’
She looked at the book being careful not to touch anything.
‘Also, that is not the kind of book he would read, neither would he have a nightcap before bed since his heart attack two years ago.’
Mark began to sweat and wonder what else he’d overlooked before bumping off the old man for his inheritance.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
