Stinky Is Good In A Garden Of Lies

Benny needed to take a break. A hot shower and hearty lunch was just what the doctor ordered. As he settled in on the couch, ready to dig into his double stacked bacon club sandwich, he still couldn’t believe they lived in Greenstone. The house was a mess and some of the neighbors seemed to have some unresolved issues, but other than that, he loved it.
After Karen left, he soaked the key in soap and water to see if that would loosen any of the crud, and it worked wonders. Enough washed away to reveal a brand name. With rested bones, a full belly, and an energized mind, Benny flipped open his laptop and began his search for what the key unlocked.

“So,” Dayna ran her fingers through her hair. “What did you think?”
Karen fell back against the backseat. “I thought they were great. But if you don’t mind my asking, what’s up with you and Donnie?”
“Nothing.” Dayna looked at Agnes then down at her lap.
