Part three of a completed series
Michael appears at the door of the conference room, wandering into my office, musing over some document he holds. “Who was Edward Haswell?”
James and I exchange startled glances. “Edward Haswell?” I say. “He was my father. Why would you ask?”
“Because according to this….” He holds up the document…. “…. forty years or so back, Beth's Uncle Albert was in business with one Edward Haswell.”
I stand without the intervention of my brain, all but snatching the yellowed paper from his hand. “Let me see that.”
A smile plays around his mouth. “It’s news to you I take it?”
“Good God, yes. I’d no idea there was any link between Elizabeth’s family and mine.” I flip through the pages, speed-reading as I go. Francis and James are also both standing. Francis, in deference perhaps to her position as my PA, is trying not to seem too intrigued. James, with no such qualms, is simply leaning in, trying to look over my shoulder.
“It is the same Edward Haswell, I suppose?” he asks.
“Yes,” I reply. “Just from what I can see here, this is a reference to my father’s company….” I flick back to the cover page which crackles with age. “What date….?” My mind spins…. “At this date, I was fifteen or sixteen at the time.” I pace the room, dredging for the memory. “I must have met him surely?” I’m muttering to myself, but everyone is listening.
“Really?” says James. “Can you remember him?”
