Dave Falls Asleep on Duty as Evidence Mounts

Nell: Emergency meeting downstairs. Chop chop.

Me: But it’s the weekend, Nell. Can’t I have a slow start to the day?

Nell: David can only save the Yellow Chair for so long.

Me: I don’t sit in the Yellow Chair.

Nell: It’s not all about you, you know.

Me: Have I got time to shower?

Nell: No. Slippers and dressing gown will do. Time is of the essence.

Me: Why did you make me rush like that? Nobody else is here and Dave’s fast asleep.

Nell: Nonsense. He’s simply lulling Beaumarchais into a false sense of security.

Me: You do know Beaumarchais is a Stuffed Tiger, don’t you?

Nell: His accomplice could be anywhere.

Me: Where’s everyone else?

Nell: Finishing their first breakfast. Soft boiled eggs and soldiers. They’ll be in soon.

Me: I’m surprised Dave isn’t with them. He’s partial to a soft boiled egg.

Nell: David had an early first breakfast before he went on duty.

Me: Poor Big Brave Beautiful Boy. No wonder he’s asleep. The waiting for second breakfast must seem ever so long.

Nell: Needs must. Now, you’re probably wondering what this emergency meeting is all about.

Me: I am.

Nell: I’m afraid evidence is mounting against Kev and an imminent arrest is in the offing.

Me: But Kev hasn’t done anything.

Nell: Witnesses put him at the scene of the crime.

Me: He lives here.

Nell: And Kev is known for liking a double cuff shirt.

Me: So?

Nell: Worn with cufflinks.

Me: We can’t let him be arrested, Nell.

Nell: Quite. He’s going to have to go into hiding.

Me: Where?

Nell: I’m not telling you. You overshare.

Me: My readers won’t say anything.

Nell: Information can only be imparted on a need to know basis.

Me: Well, I need to know. Sorry.
