“Look,” said Victora. “We’ve got to focus on the problem at hand. Just tell them what you told me.”
“I was in my room… Playing a game.” Said Dill.
“What game?” Gwen asked.
“Call of duty, why?”
“I was just thinking that if you were active and the server reflects that we might have an alibi.” Said Gwen.
“I doubt it would hold up in court.” Said Victora. “I mean he could have left the game running I mean the murder happened in our house.”
“I didn’t do it!” Cried, Dill.
“I know.” Said Victora. “I’m just looking at things objectively.”
“The video game defense might not hold up in court, but I find that I like tugging at the loose threads. If we can establish that Dill was online at the time of the murder that might lead us to the next question. Pretty soon the whole thing comes unraveled.”
“Whats your gamer tag?” I asked.
“Master-rellish2304,” Said Dill. “Because people call me Dill.” He said embarrassed.
