Sitting outside the courtroom his story sounded plausible. He’d tell his story and all would be well.
However Carstairs was not the brightest spark to put on the witness stand.
How he had come to drive his car into the front parlour of Mrs Billings house was a mystery to so many.
Not only had he driven his car into her parlour but along the way he had made perfect left and right turns not knocking over one of Mrs Billings antique vases.
All he remembered was leaving the Duck’s Nuts Hotel after a business meeting, receiving a call to go to another business meeting at the Nads Sack followed by his mum calling him from the Dog and Toad.
After that there was a blinding light and he was sitting in Mrs Billings’ front parlour.
Mrs Billings had been very nice about it all, after all nothing had been broken and Carstairs had made a very neat park beside her priceless Chesterfield.
Hearing his named called he jumped to his feet as all memory of the event vanished from his mind.
