Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 118
…Our life on this planet is not just about what are you going to do the next moment, day or week…
“You seem to be convinced about that devil fellow,” wonders a curious Ace.
Agent Daniels responds, “I have personally witnessed one miracle and one manifestation in the past few weeks and add that to my involvement with World Agnostica and I can tell you that, with all certainty, that there is a full-fledged spiritual battle going on.”
“Are you still going to ride the fence about God, Ace?” Connie qualifies. It was one of those “stumbling blocks” to any relationship between the two of them; he is a real nice guy but…
“I didn’t know it was that important to you.”
“Choose a side and don’t be a wimp.”
“She has a valid point, Mr. Ace,” comments James/Daniels/Spencer/Rogue/Cephus. “Our life on this planet is not just about what are you going to do the next moment, day or week; it is what are you going to do about your eternal soul?”
Ace Bannion is hard to nail down, whether it is getting him to stand still or any of those issues that are best left to the philosophical types.
“Well, we have some four days before the cargo steamer comes back to Rome, I think we are should take in some of the countryside,” Ace makes an executive decision about the present and tables that everlasting thing.
“And I thought we could head back to the states right away, you know, keep the devil on the run.” The lady doth protest too much.
“We can’t just hang around Italy and do nothing and since the roads have been rebuilt since the war, I can hear the hills and valleys calling us.”
“Wish I could join you guys, but I have to wait for my boss’ next move,” Daniels laments.
“Which one?” she asks.
“All of them,” he replies.
“I know you will be in touch because ‘you have your ways’.”
“I do,” he chuckles, “and I will. The Libby Affair is far from over.”
