(Laura too, saves valuable things from the trash)
It was very late in the office. Remington for once had his desk
covered and he was doing all of the work. Drawing after drawing
of his Dick Darkside were scattered, constructing a storyline
designed to expose Raymond Kelly's murderer. Laura picked one
up from the edge of his desk.
"These are really good. I'd say you had more than a dash
of training." She assessed, in an obvious questioning tone.
He chose to ignore Laura's probing. She returned the drawing
to his desk and let out a defeated sigh. He took his most recent
drawing, scowled and discarded it to the trash can. Laura rescued
it. She looked at the familiar, handsome features of Dashing
Dave, "You mind if I keep this?"
"Why do you want it?"
"I don't know," she shrugged, "It's good...I'm
always amazed how anyone can do this."
"Laura it's just a stupid sketch."
"Given your artistic talents, my 'Lover's' sculpture must
have given you a good laugh."
"Whatever happened to that anyway?"
"I moved it to my garage when my mother thought the carpet
cleaners left a machine behind. I guess the explosion did the
artworld a favor on that one."
"I rather liked it."
"I'm just not good at anything." Laura lamented as
she turned her back to him and flopped on the sofa.
"You said you were downhill champ?"
"I was ten and it was downhill champ of my skiing class.
There were only four of us." Laura confessed turning up
"I've heard you sing."
"Outside the shower, that doesn't have many practical uses."
"Well, if you're looking for an audience, I'd be happy to
join you in the shower at any time," he offered wiggling
his eyebrows. He rose and joined her on the couch. "I'm
sure you have many other hidden talents." He snuggled closer
to her and spoke with deliberate choice of words, "We just
haven't uncovered them yet."
Just as their lips were about to meet, Laura pulled back , "What
about you Mr. Steele? Any other talents that you're not showing
"I'll show you mine, if you show me yours." He kissed
her quickly before she could object.
