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.
The apparent owner was dead in the chair beside the table upon which they lay.
‘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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
