He'd forgotten to hit the head before leaving the house.
If I had happened to look in the rear-view mirror, I would've seen my dear husband trudging home in a bad mood.
"Simone! We missed you at the cafe yesterday!" she said, "Come in, come in!"
"So? How have things been?" I asked, pressing subtly, "Any more signs of break ins?" I didn't need to tell her it was me that had breaking in...
Dorothy frowned, "You know, now that you mention it..."
"Dorothy? I think I'm going to need a ride to the hospital!" I called out.
Never mind the pregnant woman, I thought sourly.
Thank goodness, he made it in time!
Good... no one was around.
(AN: He caught him celebrating, I assume the birth of his little girl. Then, he tried to play it off like he didn't do anything at all. He looked down at his new ring and did another little happy dance. Lol.)
Carmen smiled mysteriously.
Oookaaay, I thought. "Do you mind watching Acai? I was in the middle of something when the labor pains began!"
"Really?" Carmen asked in surprise. "Right now?"
I smiled mysteriously and slipped Acai into his arms. "I'll be right back," I promised.
Narcissa nodded. "Of course. We want to get to the bottom of this. I looked all around and it didn't look like they took anything this time..."
"ACHOOO" Narcissa sneezed. "What is in that stuff?"
I glanced down and cocked my head to the side. "You know? I don't know!"
"Oh, I will!" I promised, mentally crossing my fingers. I wasn't sure it would all come up. This was my first time using it! Oh, look, there was a print. I glanced over at Narcissa. "Can I have a little room, please?" I asked, using my most-official-voice.
Narcissa back-pedaled. "Oh, of course! Sorry!"
That no good, lousy, swindler of a cook! This house is full of common, harmful, but non-lethal chemicals. That's what has been making everyone so sick! And if I'm reading this the right way, Narcissa has set up Dustin Langerak to fall in order to get a promotion! I should find him and warn him...
Narcissa raised her eyebrow and shook her head. "Weird girl..."
"Hi Dustin, thanks for agreeing to talk to me," I told him when he stepped outside to speak with me. "I have some news you are going to LOVE!"
Good thing he paid me my fee because I doubt Narcissa was going to be feeling the love.
For now I was going to enjoy spending some time with my family!
"I'm just glad you're done with your case!"
...and we wound up in bed together.
Good thing Acai was just a baby and wouldn't know why the bed was squeaking like that!
