Kandee leaned against the wall outside of Detective Thomas’ office. She wanted to run, but her feet wouldn’t move.
“Are you okay?” Joey touched the small of her back and walked her to the main doorway. “If you need to wait for me, I can drive you home.”
“I’ll be okay.” She touched her forehead. “I just need a little fresh air. Thanks anyway.”
He watched her walk through the parking lot, and wondered what the detective said to her to make her so rattled.
“Joey, my man!” Chuck extended his hand. “I ate in your place the other day, and man, that was the best meal I’ve had in a long time.”
“I appreciate that. I hope that means you’ll come back and bring your friends.”
He looked at his watch. “I may stop by today. But first things first. Word has it around the Plaza that you and Macy were having an affair.”
Joey didn’t know how he was supposed to react. “I’m sorry?”
Detective Thomas rounded his desk and sat on the edge. “Hey, I saw pictures of the woman…she was hot. Who could blame you? Or maybe when you added Kandee to your list, it got a little crowded.”
Joey stood and reached into his pocket. He threw two coupons on Chuck’s desk. “It was nice chatting with you detective. Your next meal is on me.”
