THE SHAGGY SAGA OF SEA CZAR CITY, VOL. 7. PAGE 35

After the evening and breathing had returned to formal, I asked Mellon Feller if she needed a guide home.

“No” she said, “Miss Chance will take care of that.”

Only Miss Chance probably saw which way the puzzle was jigged and decided to scatter.

I slapped Mellon Feller hard enough to send her shades into shadows and shouted: “Lets see what your phoney lump is made of, Mellon Feller, Mini Soda Katz, Tattle Dale Bow!”

It was then that I saw her egg white eyes showed no yoke.

I knew I’d missed my chance.

From the livid faces around me, I decided staying for cookies and tea might land me in steep trouble.

Monday I showed the photos I’d taken at the book hub to Camera Sly at Sly’s Shutter Shop.

He said Miss Chance reminded him of Patty Cable.

He said he’d encountered her at Swab’s Drugstore.

He said she was slipping a soda under her sweater.

“I didn’t want Constable John to cuff her” said Sly “so I threw three coins on the fountain and told her I could make her a scar.

With a mark on her face, I figured even hardened sea dogs would shed a private tear.

She called me Sven and golly I loved her.

I changed her name to Fallacious Flaw and taught her to pose.

I had big plans for Fallacious but after her calendar came out, she left me dateless.”

“Any idea where she might have gone?”, I asked.

“Follywood” he said, “she wants to go fur in the clamorous business.”
