But you were expecting her home.


Yes. I cooked dinner.


I could send a police officer to your house.


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


Until when? It's five in the morning.


Maybe she went somewhere.




I don't know. Should I be worried?


I would be.


Yes, I'm worried.


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


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


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


I hope so.


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


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


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

Ed hangs up.


Ed takes the sleeping pills from the medicine cabinet and takes two more.


Eve has a small room in the house that Ed is cautious about entering. He walks in and looks around, as if he hasn't been in there for a while.


The room is painted sky-blue and the ceiling has clouds painted on it.

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. He presses a little harder at the drawer, but it won't budge. He takes a letter opener from a jar on the desk and starts to fidget with it, but he still can't open it.
