Elsey walks into the local bar, The Tricky Mister, and asks her old buddy Cyrus to pour her a drink.
"Something girly," she asks him. "Something the boys will laugh at."
She smiles and looks around the room. She thinks about who else might walk into the room tonight. She turns back to her girly drink and waits for Sir James to arrive, as he undoubtedly will at some point.
Just then, the front door opens and in walks....

As the bar pianist continues to caress his piano with his soft touch, the detectives lean back against the lounge sofas and ponder over D.L's disappearance. Indeed, it was unlike her to just waltz out of City Hall and Sleuth Town, without so much as a word of farewell to her fellow colleagues.

"Perhaps she was kidnapped...murdered even!" Elsey speculates under her breath, too afraid to voice out her own fears even to Sir James, as he sips on his champagne.

Lost in thought and hunched over the bar, still writing notes, Elsey became aware that the bar had quietened down substantially, and her keen senses suddenly filtered out soft footsteps approaching her from behind. "I know those footsteps...."

She tries to spin around in her bar stool but is too late. Gloved hands press against her eyes from behind and a low, soft voice whispers in her ear.

"Hello my dear lady...It's been awhile..."

The voice sent chills up Elsey's spine. In one swift motion, she fights back her tears of joy, leaps up from her bar stool, almost knocking Sir James's champagne bottle over and finds herself in the arms of D.L. Williams.

D.L. eyes glisten with happy tears.

"I have missed you so much. I know I've been gone yet I really can't stay very much longer either. My new state of affairs..." Her voice trails off in anguish then she resumes her cheery tone.

"Let's take this opportunity to celebrate and reminiscense of better days gone by! Where are the rest? Where's Vin, Timmy and DaRu?"

Elsey shakes her head and sighs. Di has been away for so long, she can't even begin to understand all that has transpired.

"Well, Chicago has been changing, sweetie," Elsey started to explain, "but..."

Elsey trailed off as Di looked at her watch and gave a startled expression. She gave Elsey and Sir James each a quick hug and ran for the door.

At the door she turned around and shouted, "I _will_ be back! (Someday...)"

And with that she was gone.

Elsey turned to look at all the others in the bar. No one seemed to have even noticed Di had come and gone. Had it been a dream? Elsey just put her head down on the bar and had herself a little cry before pulling back together and placing a look of calm on her face.

"Another drink please, Cyrus? And another bottle for my friend Sir James here, since a spilled a lot of his bottle just now."

As Cyrus brings the drinks, Elsey feels a hand placed tenderly on her shoulder. Still sniffling a bit she looks up.
To her astonishment it's not the hand on Sir James she feels, but, uncharacteristically, the hand of Fonzie. Touched by this tender display of charms, she falls into his arms and starts crying.
"She *sniff*, she was here! I saw her *sniff*, and I don't *sniff*, don't even know *sniff*, *sniff* I don't even know if she was reheheheheal"
Fonzie, strokes Elseys hair. "There, there, if it's any consolation, I saw her too"
"You did?!? Why didn't you say so immediately?"
All business again, she wipes her tears and invites Fonzie at the table with Sir James and herself.
"Okay, now we know she is still in town, but where is she? What did she mean by 'new state of affairs'? And why did she leave all of a sudden?"
"There must be someone or something keeping her from appearing in the usual places. We should look into this."
"Operation What's up with Di!"
"What we need is a plan."

Elsey rolls out a table sized map of Sleuthville. Sir James looks at her, the look on his face saying, "who is this girl, Mary Poppins? Pulling giant maps out of that tiny purse?"

Elsey sees the look and replies simply, "Cyrus keeps it behind the bar for me for just such times as this. It comes in handy when looking for the houses of all those suspects!"

Sir James nods wisely. "That would make sense," he replies. "Now what was your _idea_ with this map, Elsey?"

Elsey stares at Sir James incredulously. "You're the smart one," she says. "Don't you already have a plan all worked out in that pretty lil hea dof yours?!"

"You must be mistaking me for somebody else, last time I checked I was the increadibly charming one ;)" Sir James quipped.
"Anyway, we'll start by rounding up the usual suspects, interrogate or sweet talk them, and then just go from there, what do you think?"


Sep-3-2004 22:56

Just then, an unnoticed figure at the bar turned around on her stool, stood up and sauntered over to their table. "The person I suspect you'd want to talk to smells of greasy onions. THis person, will no doubt recognize this" She said as she held up a very old looking coin with the emblem of a howling wolf on it. She set the coin down on the map "Tell her the welder sent you, she'll know." With that she walked back over to the bar, shot down the last of her whiskey sour and left the bar, without a backward glance.


Sep-4-2004 00:58

Elsey stared at Sir James in disbelief. She picked up the strange coin off the map and examined it.

"Did that really just happen? Who would smell of greasy onions? The waiter, maybe?" Elsey questioned.

Sir James just nodded. "That would make sense to me," he replied. "Let's head over to see Maria and get a bite to eat at Sami's Greek Restaurant."

Elsey rolled up the map and handed it over the bar to Cyrus. She then followed Sir James out of the bar.


Sep-14-2004 23:22

As they stepped into the pouring rain outside several sounds like sharp thunder sent Elsey diving to take cover behind a car parked at the side of the street.
"That was close!" She shouted to Sir James.

Hearing no reply Elsey turned around just in time to see...

in walks this beautiful man. Now you know for a man to be called beautiful he must be something. He looked like he step out of the cover of GQ or something. All the ladies turned around to look at him. All the fellows grumbled under their breath. Nobody knew who he was but everybody wondered. He walked up to Cyrus and asked him for a beer. He went and sat with the shady character. 10 minutes into their conversation a visable upset woman comes storming in the bar.....


Sep-16-2004 19:41

The Beautiful man had walked right by her vegetable cart, and for no apparent reason, other than it was blocking the crosswalk, pushed in down the gained speed quickly as the woman took of after it...
Elsey saw Sir James rounding the corner.....

He had seen the whole incident and went running after the cart and the woman...the cart then crashed into the bank sending vegetables everywhere.. which the woman then tiredly and with much sobbing collected into her aprons as Sir James righted the cart..
After replacing her bruised and now mostly destroyed produce, she and Sir James wheeled the cart back to the bar, and had met Elsey running toward them, along the way.
Sir James and Elsey desided they needed to regroup..
And the woman, incredibly upset had entered the bar.
She was about 5'5", covered in fruit and vegi mash, average build, with a glare in her sharp blue eyes... She looked to Cyrus and nodded toward Shady's corner.
