Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 49

Chapter Five

 SANITY

 You would think that the discovery of Willard Libby, or at least that he is still alive, would bring to an end the service of CCPI; though rightful credit falls in the column of pure dumb luck.

If you would ask Constance Caraway, who when she left Tallahassee it was a balmy 70 degrees Fahrenheit, her druthers may lean toward heading home, considering that a recent night’s low temperature was -10 degrees (below zero cold).

The one BUT in the equation and it is a big one, lies somewhere between a warm down-filled coat and the titanic struggle between good and evil that seems to be shaping up. Adding layers of clothing is an easy solution for the former and her unfettered Baptist belief that the devil is real, running rampant in a world ripe for defiling, the latter.

In between that creature comfort and the pit of hell, she has the no-small-matter of Willard Libby hanging over her. In the short time she and Fanny have been in Chicago, her dreams of investigatory adventure have been met, yea exceeding her expectation.

Willard Libby represents a ‘monument of righteousness’ to her. Where does it read that a man, a scientist devoted to following the trail of his research, can be snatched from that life and unceremoniously deposited into the chaos of another? Can a story as dire as this, be rewritten to her satisfaction? And what is the cost if the ending they author falls short?

Questions without answers, the world is full of them, never mind the chicken and egg. One of the more meaningful mysteries is just how old planet Earth is and how it came to be. That seems to be the very reason CCPI has been drawn into this fray. Students around the world are being taught that by all scientific calculations it is somewhere around 5 billion years old, meaning that it sat around doing nothing for most of that 5 billion years, without supporting human life.

Rather a waste of divine time.
