"If I here anything else about this, I may call you for some more help."
"We ain't talking to you without getting something for it." Ruthanna turned to walk out. Delmar just stood there."Dimwit, we're going now."
"Suh, I know I saw sumpmen, I just can't remember all the stuff, you know the things you asked me."
"Delmar, I don't doubt you. We'll look into it. Thank you for letting us know."
As the Flynns walked out of the station, the Sheriff feared for Delmar's well being. If looks could kill, poor Delmar was probably a dead man walking.
Mike and Mary Lou just stood there as the Flynns left. "What do you think?" asked Mike.
"Hell, if I know. Delmar's a good guy, despite his taste in women. I don't doubt he saw something, I'm just not sure if was 2 alley cats going at each other behind a trash can or some mob hit."
Mary Lou and Mike laughed with the Sheriff. He continued, "After a night with the boys at Junior's, he could have seen unicorns, mystics, or little green men."
As they stood there, the sound of steps coming down the stairs in the hall caught their attention. There stood Ada Mae, dressed in Victorian era attire head to toe.
Mary Lou spoke first, "Ada Mae, I must say you look quite fetching. What is the occasion?"
"Oh my dear, you haven't heard? The war is over."
Mike was confused,"What war?"
"The Spanish-American war of course, the boys are coming home. I'm going to meet them at the station." With that she walked out the door, parasol and all.
As the 3 returned to what they were doing before the Flynn's visit, the Sheriff mumbled, "Or, the boys coming home from the war, albeit during the McKinley administration.
