“And you believe what a three years old boy says?” Asked Elena frowning.
“I believe he could be a valid witness.” Insisted Adam. According to the boy, he saw the ghost and heard it singing nursery songs.
“He could believe anything,” Elena insisted. And she was willing to prove it. She knelt beside the little boy with a smile.
“You know David,” she said, “I heard ghosts love sweets and candies. You think the ghost was eating something when you saw it?”
David thought for a moment, then said “I think it was eating candies.” Elena looked at Adam rasing an eyebrow, then sighed. This is a waste of time she thought.
“It wasn’t eating candies, it was just carrying heads.” They all looked at the other boy in the room, much bigger than David, sitting on the desk coloring with his crayons.
“Ah,” Elena said sitting next to the boy, “Now this might be interesting. Tell us what did this … ghost do with the heads.”
The boy remained silent.
“Hello?” she insisted.
“You don’t know how to deal with kids, do you?” Adam sighed kneeling next to the boy.
“What is it that you are drawing?” he asked looking at the boy’s paper that showed only doodles and scribbles.
“A boat That’s not a boat!” The boy, looked at him took him paper and crayons and moved to another table.
“You definitely know how to deal with kids Adam.” Elena remarked sarcastically.
Ryan went to the boy, looked at him and smiled.
“What’s your name?”
“Sam” the boy said without looking.
“Hi Sam, I’m Ryan and he is my brother Adam and she is Miss Elena.” Ryan said pointing at each one respectively. “We want to know about the big heads, can you tell us please?”
Sam remained silent.
“Ok” he finally said, “but I want a lollipop.” He left his crayons and folded his arms.
Ryan smiled and nodded.
“The ghost came from outside with the big head and went upstairs. Then it came down again and went outside.”
“Did he have something else when he came down?” Elena asked taking notes in her leather note-book.
Sam shook his head.
“The ghost was singing.”
Singing, again? Thought Elena.
“What was it singing?” asked Ryan frowning.
“I don’t know the song yet. It is a new one Miss Kate is teaching us.”
Elena took notes. Miss Kate will have to answer some questions.
