Parfaitement. Je n’y ai d’ailleurs pas cru. Et sa sœur plusieurs fois l’incita à se taire. — Ce qui ne lui plut pas, j’imagine ? — Elle ne cessa de soutenir que son récit était véridique. — Dirons-nous qu’elle s’en glorifiait ? — Ma foi, oui. — Il est possible qu’elle ait été sincère… — Mais non, voyons ! C’est exactement le genre de contes que Joyce était capable d’inventer. — Était-elle menteuse ? — Pas particulièrement, mais elle était connue pour ses vantardises et son désir de passer pour plus intelligente que ses compagnes.

Apparemment, non. — Là encore, j’oserais affirmer que ce crime ne peut être celui auquel Joyce se référait. Il lut le dernier nom de la liste. — Janet White. — Trouvée étranglée sur un chemin de traverse entre l’école où elle enseignait et l’appartement qu’elle partageait avec une autre institutrice, Nora Embrose. D’après les déclarations de celle-ci, Miss White aurait reçu à plusieurs reprises des lettres de menaces du boy-friend qu’elle avait laissé tomber une année plus tôt. Néanmoins, la police n’a pu mettre la main sur cet homme.

Il devait se droguer ou boire. Peut-être a-t-il agi inconsciemment ? — Vous êtes sûre qu’il s’agit d’un homme ? Mrs. Reynolds eut l’air choqué. — Il est impensable qu’une femme ait commis un crime aussi horrible ! — Elle n’aurait cependant pas eu besoin d’user de beaucoup de force. — J’admets que, de nos jours, les femmes sont plus athlétiques qu’autrefois. Mais quel genre de monstre serait la 40 femme qui irait tuer une enfant de cette manière ? Joyce n’avait que treize ans. — Je ne veux pas vous torturer en vous posant des questions que la police a déjà dû vous poser.
