Through the window, the servants watched the two older Ms. Sleerlys comfort Rose by the pool.
One would have assumed Abitha Sleerly, 60, Marta Sleerly, 45, and Rose Sleerly, 22, grandmother, mother, and daughter. The buxom blondes had the same high cheekbones, small noses, and ample breasts.
They were related. As of this Friday, they were all officially ex-wives of Mr. Sleerly.
“They’re comforting Rose. It’s sweet,” declared the chauffeur.
At 8:03, Monday morning, Ed Sleery would be found dead.
