Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 86
…Connie suspects there is more than piano tutoring going on between William and the Dean’s daughter…
The Dombroski involvement in this universal affair is part and parcel the result of Eddie’s chance offer of livery; a simple airport fare differs greatly from risky short-term employment. They had provided cover for themselves in renting the Packard sedan for him to drive, but protecting Eddie’s personal interests had not crossed their minds. Eddie will not be of any good service until his wife is found.
“No, I saw him trying the bathroom door knob while you were in the shower.”
“How about Martin and Willard…?”
“They have been staying at Will’s office ever since he snapped out of his coma,” Fanny serves as the crew’s social secretary, sees all & knows all of everyone’s everything.
“Good,” Connie runs back down the hallway to the common bath, barging in without knocking. “Get the car William!”
“You can tickle her ivories another time sonny,” she has seen the two together and suspects there is more than piano tutoring going on between them, “get dressed and warm up the car, we have a friend to help.”
“Poor William,” Fanny expresses sympathy for a nice young man who is challenged when it comes to romance.
Constance is not the least bit concerned about that. Ramifications are spreading like an allergic rash, with benign redness leading to serious discomfort. And for all his foibles, Eddie has been nothing but loyal to them despite the uneven cadence of his employ. Never once was his wife to be part of the deal. Innocent coalitions have lead to collateral damage.
