Continuation of detective series poem about love and intrigue on the internet.
He had tried several times to send her email
But kept getting nowhere fast
His time was running out
And he had to let her know
He had tried to find her ISP
But no luck there...
Some detective he was! !
Who was she...really? ? ?
Where did she live?
How could he reach her? ? ? ! !

It was Friday
And the deadline from that thug was looming!
Soon it would be nine o'clock...
he couldn't let it happen! !

Finally...a reply! !
'Hi Sam! '
(his pen name
after Sam Spade)

'Hi gorgeous! How have you been?
Where have you been?
Listen,
There's something I have to tell you...
I know you're gonna freak...
But I hope you won't lose faith in me
When I tell you what I have to say...'

Reply...

'Sam...what on earth are you talking about?
You've gone serious on me all of a sudden...
You're starting to scare me...
What's up? ? Why would I lose faith in you? ? '

He sat for a moment and pondered his fate...
Lose the girl...or LOSE the girl? ? ! !
It appeared that would likely happen one way or t'other...
All he could do...
Was... what was right!
A quick two fingers of courage should calm his nerves...

Reply...

'Ok...I'm not who I seem to be...
I'm actually an internet investigator...ok...
Private eye...
Hired by your husband to get some dirt on you
That's right sweetheart....
I don't know how to tell you
But he wants you
Out of his life...and...
In a bad way!
Please don't be mad...
I think...well...
I think...ummm...
Awww crap...
Nevermind what I think...'

Pause...long pause...

Tappity tapity...
Fingers drumming computer desk...
Waiting for reply...
Tappity, tappity...tappity...

Long, long pause...

'Awww man! !
Answer me doll-face!
C'mon Annie....answer me! ! '
Tappity, tappity...more scotch...

Finally a reply....

'What the frig Sam? ? ? ! !
Is this some kind of joke?
Because you're not being very funny! !
I've never seen this side of you before...
I'm not certain I like this side of you either...
Are you one of those sickos who stalks women on the internet? ? ? !
Because...if you are....you're a creep! ! !
Go find yourself someone else to stalk! !
And I thought you were my friend! '

Reading reply...

'Ohhh Annie...nooo....Annie! !
You've got to listen doll...'

Taps out his reply after looking at the clock...
8: 00 o'clock...

'Annie...if you never talk to me again...
If you never want anything else to do with me...
That's fine....
I understand...
But please...for your sake...
Listen to me just this once!
Get out of your house right now! !
Pack some things and leave town!
get the heck out of there!
If you still want to talk to me
(And I pray you do...)
Send me a message back and let me know where to find you...
I'll meet you anywhere...
I don't care!
You're husband wants you dead! ! !
Get the heck out of the house! !
Now! It's supposed to happen at nine o'clock!
Annie...if this means anything to you...
I think I'm falling for you...
Now...get outa there! ! ! '

Long sigh...
Followed by gulp of scotch...
Waiting, waiting, waiting...
No reply...

Check who is on-line....
