After introducing herself, Cassy suggested he peruse the emails himself since words couldn’t describe what they’d seen and definitely carried more impact than hearing alone.
He settled in front of the computer and brought up the emails. He browsed several and finally said, “Yeah, this is disconcerting. I need a copy of your emails.”
Once that was done he asked, “You noticed anyone unusual hanging around you haven’t seen before, had any arguments with customers neighbours ex-lovers?”
“No, definitely not. This is completely unprovoked and out of the blue.”
“I’d suggest you watch carefully any packages letters or other emails that come your way. I’m going to have an expert look at these. It’s not my department, but I feel there is a problem here.” At her surprised look he continued, “I’m hoping it’s a wrong email addy, but because there are so many, with increasing intensity, I doubt that’s the problem.”
Standing, he took the memory stick and was lightly tossing it up and down as he added, “As soon as I hear from the tech department that handles these types of issues, I’ll get back to you.”
“In the meantime, take note of any changes around you. Have your staff and friends keep their eyes open too.”
“I can do that.”
Cassy shared the details with Shawn then asked that she keep watch for anything else unusual. “Listen, I know you must be tired. I think we can call it a day. It’s been exceedingly quiet for the last half hour. Why don’t you head home? I’ll close up.”
“I’ll gladly take you up on that offer. I’m feeling beat. I’ll do the day end sheets tomorrow,” Shawna promised on a half yawn.
At five o’clock, Cassy closed the shop and was heading outside as Maggy turned into the parking lot. She waved at her then tapped her head and went to retrieve her drops. Locking the door, she got into the car to immediately fill her in on the day’s events. Maggy explained the eerie feeling she’d had earlier spotting the guy on the library steps.
Their next stop was the grocery store. Hauling the groceries inside they glanced at each other and said, ‘Moe’s’. Maggy made a production out of rolling up her sleeves before dialing to order two chicken souvlaki roll-ups and Caesar salads. Then they put the groceries away, flopping onto the sofa. Maggy said, “Man I’m glad you agreed. I’m just not into cooking tonight.”
“No, nor was I.”
“Want to see what’s on TV, perhaps a movie?”
