Eleanor – Walking to the Iterum
Eleanor walked with Simone behind Rachael in her chair and Felicity. The men and Millicent were carrying the crates to The Iterum. Millicent, in a rare moment of sexism, had the men lugging the heavy luggage in the large cases. The three crates held special equipment that Millicent brought to help with the investigation.
Simone had been agitated since her meeting with Jason and Rachael last night. She had talked incessantly and turned over and over in bed. Eleanor asked Rachael, “What did you three plan last night? Jason’s eyes are crossed. He is so confused and for the first time I don’t think it is about women. Simone has been on edge since the conversation. And you just seem moody.”
Rachael said diffidently, “We haven’t planned anything.”
Eleanor replied quickly and sharply, “Then what the hell is going on?”
Simone picked at something on her coat. Rachael faced forward, continuing her roll towards the Iterum and said, “The notebooks revealed some things that don’t seem possible. We agreed to hear what Millicent said before we reached any conclusions or say anything.” She paused and then continued, “So just keep your knickers on.”
Eleanor fumed, but said nothing more. They arrived at the deserted house. The cases were placed along one of the walk ways. Millicent opened one. She leaned down and flipped a switch. An orb hummed and rose out of the case. Jason said wide eyed, “It’s a drone.”
Millicent said, “One of Charles that has been modified. This one goes under water.”
