~~~ Peacock Residence-Drawing Room- 12:30 pm~~~
Evelyne is sitting back on the sofa, reading a glossy Hollywood magazine. Alice Peacock watches from her chair on the other side of the coffee table. The doorbell rings. Alice continues to look angrily at Evelyne. Mr. Tenné enters the Drawing Room with Mrs. White.
“Mrs. Peacock!” Beryl says excitedly, “My we have plenty of work to do! I saw the banner in the Hall! It’s great! Where should we put up the snack buffet?” she doesn’t give Mrs. Peacock a chance to answer, “I think there should be two, one in the Hall and one in the Dining Room, maybe a small one in here. Has Mr. Tenné gotten any of the wines out of the cellar yet? I think a good sparkling…”
“Beryl.” Alice stands up, “Vera isn’t due to come home for seven hours.” Alice walks over to Evelyne, biting her lip, “I’d like you to meet my brother-in-law’s wife, Evelyne Peacock.”
“This is quite the large family, this Peacock family.” Mrs. White says, “Oh, Alice we need to talk… alone… in your Study perhaps…”
Alice is more than happy to leave Evelyne.

“Miles?” he asks reading the call ID
“John, I know where your uncle is.” Miles says
“Miles what’s going on? You left on such short notice?” asks John
“There was a murder.” Miles says, “My son-in-law.”
“I’m sorry.” John says with sympathy
“Don’t be, he deserved it.” Miles says, “The police have been digging through our pasts.”
“What do they know?” asks John
“I kept it confidential about your uncle’s connection with Thallo Green.” Miles says
“Thank God!” John says, “When will you be home?”
“Nathaniel’s dead.” Miles says
“What!” John shouts, “Nathaniel… he… he can’t be dead! He’s the only one that has… had access to the Green Estate!”
“So you are going to have to get even friendlier with Forest.” Miles says
“But…” John sighs and closes his eyes, “Alright, I’ll invite him to the Peacock Residence for Vera’s party. Are you coming?”
“Jayne is, but I’m staying here for the funeral.” Miles says
“Well, I wish you the best.” John hangs up the phone.
Mr. Ash enters
“Is there anything I can get you?” he asks
“A shot of whiskey.” John says opening the doors to a wine cabinet in the corner.
