The night of Nurse Devane’s murder was happening right before her eyes. She saw Nurse Devane getting into her silver VW bug, as she was about to turn the key in the ignition, Nurse Devane happened to look up into the rearview mirror, and there where two, dark eyes were peering at her, she quickly turned in the drivers’ seat. It was Dr. Malinsky, he was the one who was viciously peering at her from the back seat of the car.
After he pushed her head forward, Dr. Malinsky took the belt from around his pants and wrapped it around her neck, he tightened it until she could no longer breathe, he left Nurse Devane’s limp body thrust forward on the steering wheel, and Dr. Malinsky fled quickly from the car, but before leaving the scene of the crime, he noticed a ring laying undisturbed on the wet pavement, thinking he had knocked it off during the struggle, he forced it back onto her finger.
Suddenly, Ora was burst from her trance just in time to find Nurse Nafar moving in her direction. “It wasn’t Dr. Wayne. It was . . . you!” Ora pointed an accusing finger at Dr. Malinsky. “You killed Nurse Devane!” Dr. Wayne stood by quietly watching. “What are you talking about, you’re just a little girl?” Suddenly Dr. Malinsky’s tender voice turned under into a wretched snarl. “It wasn’t Dr. Wayne. It was you!” Ora cried. “Mike, what is she talking about?” Dr. Wayne asked. “That’s for me to know, and you to never find out!” From underneath his lab coat, Dr. Malinsky whipped out a gun.
“I think I know what this is all about, when Delores told you she wasn’t going to do your dirty work you decided to kill her didn’t you?” Dr. Wayne asked. “I am standing right in front of you, David, of course I had to kill her, she would have told the administrator and I would have been completely out of work!” Dr. Malinsky raged. “Eventually the hospital would have caught onto your scheme, don’t you think the staff would have noticed when the patient population starts to decline; what made you think Nurse Devane would have just looked the other way knowing you were killing these innocent people just to donate their bodies to the local chop house only to collect on their social security benefits!” Dr. Wayne strongly demonstrated. “Did I forget to mention the fact that you didn’t bother telling the families of these people whom you were donating their bodies to science that they were already dead?”
“You are my friend, David, but you’ve pushed me to do something, never in my most devious thoughts would I do . . .” Dr. Malinsky was quick to raise the gun in Dr. Wayne’s direction, but before he could pull the trigger, the door to the back office was forcefully broken down, and six men in police uniform came charging out of the room. “Dr. Michael Malinsky and Roberta Nefar, you are under arrest for the murder of Delores Devane!”
Finally Ora was released from the asylum, and as she was leaving the hospital with her grandmother, she came across Dr. Wayne. “Ora,” He called out to her. She immediately turned around on her heels. “Dr. Wayne, I wasn’t sure if you were still here.” She smiled. “I’m sorry if Dr. Malinsky scared you, but someone had to tell the police what Dr. Malinsky and Nurse Nefar were doing.” He explained. “Yes, I do, but . . . ?” Dr. Wayne stopped her before she could say anything more. “Don’t worry, Ora, I know what you saw, and I believe you, please just do me this one last favor, if you can communicate with her, tell Nurse Devane . . . Delores that I really did love her, and I never meant for her to get caught in the middle.” Ora could see the tears were already beginning to form in Dr. Wayne’s eyes. “Don’t worry, Dr. Wayne, I’m sure she already realizes it.” Ora extended these hopeful words to Dr. Wayne, she didn’t want to scare him, but just outside of the glass window overlooking the clouds above, was the fading smile of Nurse Devane, she hadn’t crossed into the light until now, and if the murder had not been solved, her soul may have been doomed to walk this world forever.
From this experience, Ora was beginning to realize that restless spirits often need to find there way home, and will as long as they have a trusting guide to follow.
