Reggie returned to the office on Friday morning after leaving early Wednesday and being absent all day Thursday. When he returned, he sat down and began calculating feverishly.
Ein knocked on his door, and Reggie didn’t even look up.
“You okay, Reg?” Ein asked.
“Um…no,” Reggie replied as his pencil moved so fast it was a blur.
“Charlotte, whom I love completely, threw away my life’s work. I’m happy to have her back, but I’ve only known her a few months, and these notes I’ve been working on for decades. She threw the whole suitcase away!”
“Maybe we can find them. You said they were in a vintage suitcase. Maybe if we ask her where she threw it away, we could track it down. Someone might have pulled it from the trash to sell.”
“Sell… oh no.”
“When I was drinking, I may have told Jon Fall it was important, so I’m sure he’s been tracking it down.”
“You go home to Charlotte. Take a long weekend. I’ll see if I can track down this suitcase.”
Reggie left, and Ein collapsed into his office chair. They definitely needed to get the suitcase before Jon Fall does.
