Continuation of the detective poem series about love and intrigue on the internet
'Mr. Snow? ? '

'Yes'

'You don't know me...
But we both work for the same man.
I've got a message for you...
On Friday night...
He wants you to keep someone...
How shall we say...
Occupied...'

'Hey, listen...I'm not sure
What you're talking about pal...
but I don't...'

'No...you listen Mr. Snow! ! !
You will do this one last job...
And you will be paid an extra $10,000.00
To take a very long vacation...
You'd like a very long vacation, wouldn't you?
Maybe someplace warm...'

'I can't do...'

'Oh...I think you can...and you will...otherwise
The cops might get a tip...
About some poor shmuck
Who has been keeping time with a certain lady! !
And there just might be some proof...
Such as an email trail...
Got it? ? ! ! '

'Sure...it's all becoming clear now...'

'Good...Friday night 9 o'clock!
Payment will follow in the usual manner!
Don't disappoint my client! !
It wouldn't be pretty! ! '

Click! !

He stood there with phone in hand
With a deer in the headlight expression on his face
Trying to make sense out of what had just happened.
'Hmmm...so if I do this...then...ummm
Nope that's not an option...
But if I don't then...
I'm fucked! !
Either way...
I'm fucked! ! '

Dad had warned him there would be days like this
He just didn't say they could ever get this bad! !
He had one day...
And only one day...
To sort out what the hell he was going to do...
Which might have been a whole lot easier...
Without a conscience! !

'Dammit! '
He truly cared about this woman...
How could this work out?
How could he...
Save the girl...save his ass...
Save the day? ? ?
