“My uncle’s secretary. I can’t tell her anything until I know for certain. She knows way more about this side of the business than I do. She was the one calling the cleaners.” “I’ll handle this” said Stretch as he walked to the door. “Not that way!” Pretty Little Thing said almost in a panic. “Relax” I said. “He may be gay, but when he wants to he can charm the pants off any woman. He will buy you a few days. After that you are on your own.” Stretch didn’t close the door all the way.
