Nothing Less of Evil

Her resignation was so complete that Steve sat on the bed beside her, just as he had done when his wife, Lisa, had heard that her father had died. And when Jenny curled up into a ball, the memory was complete. He reached out his hand and laid it on her shoulder.

"It's okay," he said. "It's okay."

Nobody had shown her any comfort since her father had died. With one touch, Steve's hand broke through her hard shell, and there was nothing she could do about it. She sat up and buried her head into Steve's shoulder and cried softly. He could feel the sadness in her, trembling in the sobs she cried. She wasn't Lisa. But he couldn't deny how protective he suddenly felt.

He put his arm around her and soothed her. After a while she raised her head and looked up at him and gave him a weak smile. He gave her his handkerchief. She dried her eyes, and they sat there in silence for a while.

Then Jenny got up and found the money and the book and showed them to Steve. He whistled when he saw the large amount of money. It would take a hard working man at least 6 or 7 years to earn that amount of money. He then looked at the small notebook. It was full of names and dates and dollar amounts. When he read the names and saw the amounts, the hairs on the back of his neck rose.

During the jury selection, the prosecution didn't pay too much attention to the individuals the defense refused or accepted. It wasn't till later on that they began to suspect what Edward Bennett Williams was up to. Williams had as an assistant, a black woman named Martha Jefferson. It just so happened that her boyfriend at the time was a black man called, Joe Louis, the former heavyweight champion of the world. And it just so happened that he came by the courthouse to see her, and also met and shook hands with Bennett Williams and Jimmy Hoffa.
