Forever Mastadon ~ Episode 204
…I don’t suppose Ace is a single man???
“This parchment is so pristine, so refined, that it is almost beyond human means to produce it.”
The librarian is exhausted by the sheer depth of this experience.
“We appreciate your expertise, Miss Sauer,” Constance retrieves the scroll from her hot little hands and begs their departure.
“Keep it sealed tightly and out of direct sunlight. I don’t know where you are going with this, but you must be on a mission of some sort.”
“You could say that. We are part of a battle right now,” stating the simple truth. “If you’re interested, and you seem to be, keep your eye on the Billy Graham Crusade, he is touring the Midwest and may be coming this way.”
She hands the librarian a CCI business card, “If you flash this around, it will open some doors, seeing that we have more than a few friends involved in behind the scenes stuff, in fact, we are going to meet up with the Crusade to deliver this,” she raises the scroll, “to Mr. Graham himself. May we use your telephone, my dear?” she motions at Ace to call the Graham Telephone Switchboard. “Find out where they are and where they’re headed.”
“You’ve got it CC!” he responds mockingly-joyfully. The exact status of their relationship is not in plain sight.
While Ace is on the other side of the long front desk, Miss Sauer mentions, “He sure is dashing, in an Errol Flynn sort of way. Is he in the movies?”
“He is dashing, is he not? He flies airplanes, is an explosives expert, drives an Alpha Romeo convertible and has stared down the devil in person.”
“I don’t suppose he is a single man?”
“He is, but given the chance, there is more than one woman who would fight you over his hand (inferred: including me).”
