“Are you saying that she fake her death?”
“No, Jodi Lerner was dead, but was she, Justine Cooper?”
Faye Buckley remains silence.
“It was a great move since no one knew who she was l, she could pretend that the death of another was hers, as long as the authorities believe that the body was hers, she could still escape and live in the other side of the world. And I could’ve sworn that this woman definitely knew something about us.”
The great senator folds her hands together, staring at the deck of cards on the table, she meditates for a while. The FBI commander impatiently taps his foot, seems really in such urge.
Hearing how severe the incident Aaron Kornbluth has mentioned, Faye Buckley’s fake smile is completely gone.
“What kind of message?”
Finally, this woman is on his team.
Aaron throws a piece of paper on the desk, while it has already turned brown, the handwriting is still visible.
“Except for the deck of card, she also left me a small note.”
Did you miss me? Mr. Aaron Kornbluth? J.C
It was no doubt a provocation, a personal threat directly to the FBI commander.
Looking closely at the paper in her hand, Faye Buckley’s face shows disgust, she asks coldly.
“Did you send the CSI team to investigate?”
“I’ve asked my man to do it, but they found nothing,” Aaron shrugs. “No fingerprints, no DNA…nothing! We don’t even know if this woman existed!”
The senator makes a snort; she passes the paperback to the commander. Her attention changes to the other item on her desk.
Turning and studying carefully the deck of card in her hands, Faye Buckley’s purses her lips tightly together, listening to what Aaron has said.
“You found it accidentally in the Cooper mansion?”
“Embarrassingly, no, I found it on the desk in Justine Cooper’s room, clearly she left if there purposely.”
“Interesting…” Now he gets the senator’s half attention, the woman points into the old, brown box. “May I?”
Aaron Kornbluth nods impatiently.
Faye Buckley puts on her glasses, she opens the card box skillfully, with only one slide, she spread the entire deck of card onto the desk in a beautiful half-circle, like the one those professional dealers will do.
