2. The Night Traveller-Part Two

****

(1)

The Night Traveller heard it.

Sirens; a lot of sirens.

He walked to a phone booth.

He went inside, and made the long call to Jennifer Kane, his ex-wife. 

(2)

"John, leave me alone".

"I wanted to tell you that I'm going to Charlottesville, North Carolina. I'm starting again".

"Don't call me".

"I just wanted to let you know there's a lot of crime in Omaha, Nebraska". 

"So".

"I just let you know about it in case you wanted to meet me again".

"No​. I'm dating Charles Harrison".

"The billionaire".

"Yes", Jennifer stated.

"Well, good-bye!".

"Good-bye!".

And then he placed the phone back on its cradle.

Nancy Anderson smiled at the woman.

"Good morning. How can I help you?", she asked her.

"I'd like to have a room for three nights", she answered.

"Two hundred and forty dollars, plus tax".

She took out her black purse.

She paid for the bill with her credit card.

"Room 179 is available", Nancy said.

"Thank you", she said.

She then grabbed the key, as she dragged her luggage upstairs to her room.

(4)

The Night Traveller glanced out of the window.

He watched the cars zooming by.

And he took a long, deep, breath...and waited for the perfect time to commit the crime of the decade.
