"I am. Thank you for seeing me. I wonder if there is someplace where we can talk in private."

"Are you from Social Services? Because I sent my change of address."

"No, it's about another matter."

"What other matter?"

Jackie took a deep breath, noticed the receptionist was clinging to her every word, and lowered her voice. "We really should talk in private."

Adelaide studied the candid look on Jackie's face for a long moment, and then motioned for her to follow. She led the way to a large community room where several other residents were watching a game show on a large TV. "Don't worry, most of them are hard of hearing," she said, as she chose a table away from the others.

"Miss Bertrand, I am a private detective and I've been hired to find Georgia."

Adelaide's eyes widened. "Does Mathew Connelly know where I am?"

"No, and we aren't going to tell him."

"Do you swear?"

"I swear."

Adelaide again searched the sincerity in Jackie's eyes and relaxed a littleā€¦but just a little.

"Miss Bertrand, Georgia stands to inherit millions if we can find her. Will you tell me what happened?"

She lowered her gaze. "What happened? Well, now let me see. I guess you could say I was a bit naughty as a girl. You know the way some girls are when they get with the wrong kind of people."

"I understand, go on."
