“What’s with him?” Ask Sophie.
“Don know…, He looks worried. Since he received the box from DSL.”
“What do you think is in the box?” Sophie’s hands swirl around without any purpose for trying to answer the mystery question.
“It has to be important. Why would he be so nervous if it was a stamp collection?”
“Drug? Wha d’ ya think?”
“My guess is has to do with money, somehow––Big money.”
“Why money? He gets his from check coming from Switzerland. We always cash those for him.”
“This time it’s different. The box made him paranoid.”
“Well…, I have an idea––”
“What’s the smell? What’s burning?”
“Darn it…, My Cock Au Vin!”
