Murder Becomes Miami
I am so excited, I’m tempted to use up a lifetime supply of exclamation marks! I love this book. The plot is wonderful, the characters are engaging, the whole thing is a wonderful romp!
Chapter 2

GOTTEN WORD IT’S TIME FOR US 2 MOVE. HAVE U BEEN PROPERLY BRIEFED? ANY QUESTIONS?

The text message glared from the screen. Insistent. Unavoidable.

PROPERLY BRIEFED, came the reply. NO QUESTIONS.

GOOD. THEN B READY TO …

GOT 2 BE HONEST. A LITTLE NERVOUS HERE.

There was a pause at the other end. The sender wondered if making that confession would result in some sort of reprimand.

To the contrary, what came back was … understanding. Empathy, even.

OF COURSE U R NERVOUS. I WAS, TOO, BEFORE MY FIRST. NERVOUS IS NORMAL. WOULD WORRY IF U WERENT NERVOUS.

A short pause, followed by …

TAP INTO THAT NERVOUS ENERGY TO COMPLETE YOUR TASK AS SWIFTLY AS U POSSIBLY CAN. TAKE 2 QUICK STRIKES, MAYBE 3. U MUST B EFFICIENT. THEN, U MUST GET OUT OF THERE.

A moment to think about that. Then …

YOU DO KNOW HOW MUCH I WANT 2 DO THIS, DON’T YOU? I’M NOT NERVOUS OUT OF FEAR. NERVOUS OUT OF … EXCITEMENT.

YES, WE KNOW. WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE TRANSFORMATION. WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING U INTO THE FOLD. EVERYONE IS EAGER TO MEET U, TO SHARE OUR FELLOWSHIP WITH U. IT IS WONDERFUL HERE. U WILL LOVE BEING ONE WITH US. WE ARE EVEN PLANNING A PARTY FOR U, A WELCOME FOR OUR NEWEST SUPERSTAR!

A reflective sigh on the other end. Then, a smile, followed by thumbs flying.

CANT WAIT 2 MEET MY CONRADES EITHER! I WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!

There was a long pause. It seemed the conversation had ended.

But then …

GOOD, MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON'T.
