Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 195
“Get up & stretch your legs, as Constance Caraway and her dashing friend Ace Bannion contemplate taking a side-trip.”
CALL HIM ISAAC
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.”
“It looks like Worth is fitting in quite 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.
