Mrs. Wells really saved my bacon. All that preparation and all those props and Mr. Wells didn't fall for it. I would've looked rather foolish in front of Brick Mason if she hadn't come along and overrode her husband. But, thankfully for me, wives have been overriding husbands since the Garden of Eden.
Mrs. Wells led us into the living room. It was Victorian style furniture, which looked out of place in a cottage like this. But I could tell Mrs. Wells was particularly proud of it so I said, "This is a beautiful room, ma'am."
She smiled, "Thank you!"
