He cradled Citron gently in his arms, rocking him back and forth.
It was hard to stay mad at Simone! Especially since he couldn't imagine his life without his little boy!
"Well, if you're sure..." Carmen said reluctantly. "I guess I could watch the kids..."
I gasped in shock.
I pulled out my notepad and consulted my notes. It seems I would need to track down the second suspect...
While I was at the salon, I decided I might need a whole new look. Maybe something that made me look hip... and young...
I had a husband to entice back to my bed!
Hurriedly, I changed back into my clothes. I bet Iqbal would've come up with something more daring, I thought irritably. I'd seen what he could do with shoes!
Xavier whirled around. "You're no cop!" he said accusingly.
"I just wanted to find out about Iqbal's designer shoes. Did you take them?"
"Don't know no Iqbal," Xavier shrugged.
I pulled out a picture of the shoes and showed it to Xavier. "Have you seen these shoes?"
A light went off above Xavier's head. "Ohhhh.... those shoes. I thought those were Zelda Mae's shoes. She's got such big feet." He snickered. "I was just trying to mess with her!"
"Do you still have the shoes?" I asked wearily.
Xavier dug around in the back of his truck. "Yeah, they should be back here somewhere..." he said, lifting a tackle box and tossing it carelessly to the side. "It's been awhile, though. I completely forgot I even had 'em!" He dropped an old bag of trash onto the driveway. "I'll find them though..."
Carmen nodded, "Let me just tell you one more thing..."
Carmen turned from me. "I'm going to go check on the babies."
I sighed. Apparently I was still in trouble with him...
"It was good, I have a ton of homework, though! On my first day!" She wrinkled her nose.
"A little yellow there... like that..." Carmen said under his breath, concentrating very hard as he painted his masterpiece.
"Sleep well, Bitter Melon," I said, kissing her forehead. "Oh, Citron! Where'd you find that Imaginary Friend doll? I hate those things!" I grabbed it from his crib and tucked it under my arm. I'd begun to really enjoy throwing them up on the roof.
