I took a deep breath and opened the door, knowing full well who I would see on the other side.
'Can I help you officers?' I tried to look guiltless, I was after all, I had done nothing wrong.
'We had a phone call to say you had an injured boy in your house.' The woman was in charge.
'Yes what of it?' I tried to stall as long as possible, I couldn't let them see Pandora.
'Can we see him?' I couldn't think of anyway of stopping them without looking suspicious.
'Of course come in.' I held the door open and the two of them walked in followed by the groundskeeper. 'He's just through here.' I led them into the living room where Tork was lying on the sofa with a bandage over his head. There was blood where the wound had been. Nice work Pandora. I couldn't see her but I couldn't see the groundskeeper either. I hoped she could look out for herself.
'Umm right.' The policewoman had obviouls y been expecting something a little more illegal. 'Everything seems in order.' She knelt by Tork who was awake. 'How are you feeling?'
'I'm fine, just a bump on the head, nothing serious.' He was playing his part well although I didn't know how much strength he was using. The woman looked really puzzled.
Umm...good.' She walked back to me again. 'Sorry for wasting your time.'
'Not at all officer.' I tried not to sound triumphant.
