John and Fred had been friends for decades. They grew up as neighbors in the same tiny Minnesota town, had been the best man for each other's weddings, had joined the Army together, had been wounded on the same mission in Vietnam, had recovered in the same hospital room, and had even received their Purple Hearts on the same day. John had even served as a pallbearer when Fred's first wife had died. There were no secrets between the two friends.
After Fred's wife had died, their weekly Thursday night card games had come to halt for a few years. But Fred had remarried now, so John and his wife Jane came to Fred's house to meet his new wife Flora and to resume the old traditional card game.
They played in the living room, as always. The room was pretty much the same as it had been when they last played. Some of the books on the big bookcase had changed, and the Purple Heart over the fire place had been joined by a picture of Fred's first wife and an award of Flora's. "That's her gallon pin for donating blood," Fred explained when John asked about the award. "She earned it at the same age we earned our medals."
When the foursome sat down to play, Fred took his usual spot with his back to the bookcase. John sat opposite him. Flora sat with her back to the fireplace, and Jane sat opposite her. During the card game (in which Fred won a fair amount of money), they learned that Flora had grown up with her adoptive parents in Minneapolis, but that she had been born in that very same small town. To John's great amusement, they also learned that the she was too young to remember much about Vietnam at all, and had little interest in the old war stories.
As John and Jane were driving home late that night, Jane asked, "Did anything seem odd to you tonight?"
"Yes," John replied.
"Are you going to do anything about it?" she asked.
"I can't," John said with sigh.
"I understand, dear. I'll take care of it."
The next day Fred was arrested and Flora was admitted to the hospital and treated for shock.

Still some work to do get the whole story out.
Flora's his daughter? Or Fred's first wife's daughter?
And Jane realizes this because she's looking at Flora, and over Flora's shoulder is a picture of Fred's first wife? She sees a resemblance?
Who is he? Yes, no, no.
So, was Fred arrested or incest?
Yes. Good grief, you guys are moving fast...
Was Flora seen by any type of mental health specialist when she was admitted to the hospital?
Was Flora given blood when admitted to the hospital?
Was Flora given large amounts of other fluids when admitted to the hospital?
Yes, no, no.
