Past Imperfect

Past Imperfect – #431


Sadie: “I suppose I could do that. How much are you willing to pay me?”

Nigel: “I didn’t say anything about paying you.”

Sadie: “Then I didn’t say anything about doing it.”

Nigel: “But I have leverage on you, my dear. I know what you did with that priest behind us.”

Sadie: “I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t see any priest. Especially not the one that is looking at us.”

Nigel: “He’s looking at you, because he knows that you just stiffed him on his change. He’s too meek to say anything about it, because that’s how you get when you sit in a little hut all day taking confession, but I have no qualms about reporting you to the manager. Unless you satisfy my simple request, you’ll be thrown into the streets as the wretch that you are.”

Sadie, sighing: “Okay, fine, you win. I’ll bring you some extra ranch dressing for your cobb salad.”

Nigel: “Splendid.”
