It's been awhile since the last one, but enjoy...
Lenny parked his Dodge Ram at a McDrive, after picking up some cheeseburgers and a large Coke. Casey had some chicken nuggets.
“Well that went pretty pear-shaped,” Casey said.
“Yeah, sure did,” Lenny admitted. “So what now? I still want to talk to Tina.”
“I figure there’s way easier way to do this. We figure Tina’s a hooker now, right? Why don’t we just order her?” Casey suggested.
“That’s so simple it might just work,” Lenny said between two bites of his cheeseburger, ketchup dripping down his beard.
“Just call Larry and order the chick,” Casey said, belching after a sip of Coke.
“There’s only one problem with that idea… I don’t have his number.”
Casey sighed. “Do I really have to think of everything for you? These days hookers are all on the internet. We should try to book her online.”
“Book her online? What are you talking about?”
Casey grabbed her phone and logged into a website called Proztituz.com. Lenny looked with her on the small phone screen in awe.
“We fill in the data we know. Like her physical description, the area she would operate in and click the Search-button,” Casey said.
“How do you know all this stuff?” Lenny asker her.
“Hey, a girl gets lonely sometimes, so sue me. I’m not always able to pick somebody up in a bar when I have a hankering for some pussy,” Casey said.
Lenny almost choked on his fries.
“God, repressed much? Didn’t know you were a devout Catholic,” Casey remarks. “Hey, think I hit pay-dirt already! Looks like her stage-name so to speak is Jillian.”
Lenny looked at the profile picture on the site Casey was pointing at. Her face was made blurry by some kind of Photoshop-like software but he could still make out enough to make it indeed very likely this was Jill. She was dressed in a short-short skirt and just a lacy bra, wearing fuck-me shoes with stiletto heels.
“You might be right,” he admitted.
“Right, now to set up the appointment,” Casey said. “There’s this motel nearby here you can rent by the hour that would be just perfect for this.”
“How do you know--,” Lenny started to say but the rolling of Casey’s eyes had him shut up.
“It’s done. She should be arriving there in three hours,” Casey said.
“Won’t Thunder be with her? And what will he do when he sees us?” Lenny wondered.
“He’ll be only there to drop her off and pick her up. We’ll just ask one of the guys to open the door. We’ll hide in the bathroom or something until Thunder is gone.”
Lenny leaned back and whistled. “Sheesh, you’re good at this stuff. Maybe you should have become the PI?”
“Just consider me the Metal Nora to your Nick, Thin Man. Or should I say Thick Man?” Casey said and ate the last chicken nugget.
