Forever Mastadon ~ Episode 195
CALL HIM ISAAC
“When will the plane be fixed,” Constance asks a typical girl question, when the answer is guaranteed not to be a simple one.
Ace Bannion uses his teaspoon to stir his bowl of Corn Flakes, mixing the sugar down into the milk. “You know, I never used to like milk CC or boxed cereal for that matter.”
“What did you used to eat for breakfast, oh never mind, you’re changing the subject! That big thing you ditched on its belly, when does it get back in the air?”
“The Angel has an upset stomach,” Ace uses human terms to describe considerable fuselage damage. “But the Douglas repair shop cannot touch her until the Civil Aeronautics Board can trace any possible sabotage back to Kansas City.”
“Dirty pool, I’d say,” she said with more than token certainty.
“Those guys need to be taken down; you don’t mess with thirty-five lives and get away with it. And with the Crusade switching to bus mode, for who knows how long, could be months, Billy told me to relax and make sure the rest of the schedule is tied up in a tidy bow.”
“Fanny and Worth are taking care of security for the Crusade for the next month, so that gives us a few days to burn, any ideas?,” Constance isn’t one for sitting around.
“It looks like Worth is fitting in nicely,” Ace is surprised that Fanny has brought the Tallahassee attorney into CCI’s everyday operations.
“Yes he is, filling a huge need since we have taken control of Graham security. They work so well together,” which is quite an adjustment for a previously small firm like theirs, “but that is them and we are us.”
You don’t have hit old Ace over the head with a hammer. He can tell that Connie is feeling left out and now that April has rolled around.
CONSTANCE CARAWAY P.I.
