The Facts

Ralph needed to sit down. He heard the front door open. Bert and Bea ran into the kitchen to greet him. Susan walked in with Chief Day by her side. She looked exhausted. “Good show old, boy.” Whispered, Ralph.

“Hi.” Said, Ralph.

“Hello.” Said Susan.

“Let’s all sit down.” Said, Chief Day.

“Susan and I spent the night doing research. We are going to share with you our findings.” Said, Chief Day.

Ralph felt his heart pumping in his chest. Or is he about to have a heart attack?

“Ralph had an acquaintance with a woman. She wanted more in the relationship. She has posted a picture of them kissing on my Instagram account. The photo has been deleted.” Said Susan.

“Officer Shape found a disturbing post on my Twitter account. He found a descriptive comment on how to kill me.” Said Susan.

“We are working with all law enforcement to find this person.” Said, Chief Day.

There was a rap on the kitchen sliding glass door. “That better be Officer Shape.” Mumbled, Chief Day. Sure enough, there stood the young police officer.

“Good morning.” Said Officer Shape.

“Cora has offered to assist us with the investigation at hand. She will be taking care of Susan’s online marketing or social media.” Said, Officer Shape.

“Most of the cases will not be discussed here. You all understand the necessity of this. Susan has chosen to be under house arrest. For lack of words.” Stated, Chief Day.

“I have been hired by Ralph as a social media consultant. My other duty is to drive Cora and Gretchen to where ever they need to go. The most important is to protect Susan. Her primary bodyguard is Tank. He is to arrive sometime this afternoon. You all know he has an extensive military background in this field.” Said Officer Shape.

“We will be upgrading my security system at home. Under my watch, nothing will happen to anyone living on my property.” Stated Chief Day.

“Ralph.” Said, Susan.

“Yea babe.”

“I’m going to Bermuda.” Replied, Susan.

Bert and Bea followed Susan out of the kitchen.
