Forever Mastadon ~ Episode 154
…“Do you know that woman… she saved us from unspeakable harm…
…“She is my partner, Fanny Renwick…
They barely notice the commotion, when another car rushes into their isle, blocking the path of an oncoming four wheel projectile. The blocking car is t-boned, nearly causing it to roll onto its side.
They both dash over to the side of the car where the driver is slumped over the steering wheel. The car, that did the ramming, sits hissing and smoking.
“There’s no driver in that fool car!” Ace is the first to peer through fogged-up windows, while Constance and her nose for trouble, picks up on the telltale odor of singed hair. They both recognize the deep auburn hair in the other sedan.
Graham runs into the lobby to get some really nearby medical help.
“That was no accident Connie. Fanny saved us from being run down,” Both of Ace’s assessments are correct. Fanny’s actions saved them from a car without a driver?
The tall and lanky Graham leads emergency room staff to the scene, who give Fanny the care she needs.
“I do believe that car had bad intentions,” he concludes. “The police should be here any minute to arrest that maniac.”
“There was no driver,” Constance relays the improbable circumstances. She then turns to Ace who is still scratching his head, “Who expects to be run down by a speeding car in a hospital parking lot?”
“Nobody can predict accidents, Connie… and Fanny, out of the blue?”
“No, I had no clue that Fanny was coming back to town, though I bet you that Edie D. knew, probably going along with the surprise.”
“Surprise guys, I just came to save your lives,” Ace puts words into Fanny’s silent mouth.
“Do you know that woman… she saved us from unspeakable harm?” Graham raises his hands to the sky.
“She is my partner at CCI, Fanny Renwick.”
“Wow, imagine that, just what you need, right when you need it. That’s how God works alright!”
“There is someone else in the back seat,” yells a nurse attending the wreck! “Get another stretcher!!!”
“That is Edie Dombroski, Ace!” She is freaking out. “This is getting g**-damned complicated!”
The tall and normally quiet Graham emphatically opposes her use of foul language, “Please Miss Caraway, do not use the Lord’s name in vain, it offends my ears, but burns His.”
The worst of people can leak out in the heat of the moment.
CONSTANCE CARAWAY P.I.
