Set Up: This excerpt is from the same scene as last week's, but a few pages later. Mattie is speaking with Clarence Higgs, her sister's husband.
My Six: (Clarence speaks first)
"See, Miss Townsend?" Clarence leaned closer, so his shoulder was against hers again. She inched away. He pointed at an obscure line on the creased map he'd been studying. "There should be a ruin here, and that -" he punctuated his words with a flick of his finger against the paper "- is the last place the gold was seen."
"You showed me your map this morning, sir, and I still do not see the great mystery."
