"How did you know?" "Instinct." "She's got fine instinct," declared Mr McCoy. "Just like her mother. So that wee brat Kate MaloneKelly's been telling lies, has she?" "We have to decide if they're lies or not. She was reluctant to reveal your son's name - " He broke off as Kevin laughed derisively. "But she had to to protect her father. After all, the box was found in his yard and he could have been blamed for it." "So it's her word against mine," aid Kevin. "Well, I'll come down to the stationbarracks and you can bring her there and I'll face her with it. You'll see then who's telling the truth." "I don't know if that'll be xx possible. She was very upset." "I bet she was," said Kevin sarcastixcally. "You can prove nothing," said Mr/McCoy. "And you can at wait on me. I'm coming too."

"I'll come with you, Brede." Text
