THE RETURN OF PRIVATE*EYES ~ By Absolutely*Kate of Harbinger*33

The Return of PRIVATE*EYES
By ~ Absolutely*Kate

The gaunt gumshoe with the battered fedora signatured his saunter  into the doorway marked “PRIVATE EYES”, knowing full gut well each stealthy step of stride would reopen the rapid-fire entendrees, double entendrees and even double-dog-dares which shot clean holes in their unabashed affliction of affection. 

She felt her former partner’s prescient presence prior to his shadow’s dimming of her old oak desk; twas always that way. “Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you still glad to see me?”, she deadpanned reflexively with what silver bullet gleam her eyes could counter-conjure. 

‘Damn!’, came the inner mutter-mumble, for indeed, he was glad to see her, and, being recently relicensed, he did have his pistol in his pocket after all. Other than that up-the-river slammer-time to clean up the mess from the unfinesse of the Paris fiasco, all that stood between them (besides the old oaken desk of course), was quite simply, (thus strongly), Paris ~ ‘Paris … cobblestones, cabarets and the inherent charm of that quaint cafe along the quay’. 

On the safer side of the solemn oak desk, her mind was racing . . . rapidly . . . rampant, (cool demeanor intact of course) — for mutter-mumbles aside, she knew Trouble when it sauntered through her doorway . . . .

Kate, this is definitely a hit. While agreeing with the other boys on that line about the bottle, I loved the feel of " clean up the mess from the unfinesse..." Something very cool!

I agree with all the above. Just one thing when do we get part two?
