ED:

No.

OPERATOR:

Do you have any idea where she might have gone? Maybe to a friend's house?

ED:

I don't think so. I called the only place I could think of.

OPERATOR:

But you were expecting her home.

ED:

Yes. I cooked dinner.

OPERATOR:

I could send a police officer to your house.

ED:

Do you think that's necessary? Maybe I should wait.

OPERATOR:

Until when? It's five in the morning.

ED:

Maybe she went somewhere.

OPERATOR:

Where?

ED:

I don't know. Should I be worried?

OPERATOR:

I would be.

ED:

Yes, I'm worried.

OPERATOR:

So, do you want me to send an officer to your house?

ED:

I don't think so. I think I should wait.

OPERATOR:

Do you think she's going to come home soon?

ED:

I hope so.

OPERATOR:

So do I. How long are you going to wait?

ED:

A little longer. I think I may be overreacting. She might have gone somewhere I can't think of. Sometimes I worry too much.

OPERATOR:

OK. It's up to you. My name is Paul. I'll be here if you change your mind.

Ed hangs up.

On one side of the room, there is a console piano with some sheet music resting on it.

On the other side of the room is a small, antique writing desk. Ed sits down and looks at some of the items lying on it. There are a couple of letters and an address book. There is a box containing paper clips, etc. There is an open box of Skin-EE( cookies.

There is a drawer in the desk which he tries to open, but finds that it is locked. He searches around the desk for a key, but can'' find one.
