  Josh wanted to laugh. Gather them all together, the Phelans and their lawyers and their new friends. Make sure the newspapers know about it. He could hear the crying and the cursing as the Phelans tried to understand what their father had done to them. Suddenly, Josh couldn't wait.

  "The twenty-seventh's fine with me," he said.

  "Good," Wycliff said. "I'll let everybody know. There are lots of lawyers."

  "It helps if you remember that there are six kids and three ex-wives, so there are nine principal sets of lawyers."

  "I hope my courtroom is big enough."

  "I suggest you read the will," Josh said.

  Wycliff intended to. He imagined what would happen. People crowded together, not a sound as the envelope was opened. This would be one of his finest moments, reading a will that gave away eleven billion dollars.

  "I assume the will is--interesting," the Judge said.

  "It's very interesting."

  The Judge actually smiled.

  祝什都要笑出来了。把费兰家族和他们的律师还有他们的新朋友召集起来,确保报纸能够得知此事。他几乎听到了费兰家族的成员们在试图弄懂父亲对他们的所作所为时发出的哭喊和咒骂。突然间,祝什有点迫不及待了。

  “我觉得27日不错。”他说。

  “很好。”瓦克利夫说,“我会告知每一个人,很多律师都在等消息。”

  “别忘了有六个孩子和三个前妻,也就是说一共有九个主要的律师团队,这会对你有所帮助的。”

  “我的法庭人满为患才好。”

  “我建议由你来宣读遗嘱。”祝什说。

  瓦克利夫正有此意。他的脑海里浮现出这样的场景:人们挤在一起,当他打开信封的刹那周围变得鸦雀无声。这会是他最得意的时刻之一,宣读遗嘱,把十一亿分出去。

  “我觉得那遗嘱会——很有意思。”法官说。

  “相当有意思。”

  法官忍不住笑了出来。
