“At the hospital.”
“Helen, what happened?”
“I’m, uh, … here to visit a friend. I forgot my purse.”
“What friend? Let me guess. Leo?”
Helen’s sister pays the fare, and Helen runs into the emergency department frantically asking for her husband. But the hospital has no such patient.
Using Eileen’s credit card number again, Helen returns home to find the door open and her jewelry, petty cash, and coin collection gone.
