‘McKinley’s Brewery " Prize Fights’ the sign in front of him said in large letters. Mike leaned a little on a side and took a look at himself in a window. He noticed that he was quite a big fellow.

“Well now…it seems to me that I might just be strong enough to handle myself in a fight. Ain’t like I got a lot of options anyway.”

So he stepped in and had a short chat with the manager. He set a fight for later in the evening and even got a down payment for it. He rushed then out to a clothes store and bought Victoria a dress and a pair of shoes. He didn’t know what color she would like, so he went for the same that she was wearing on her night robe: purple…or…was it violet?

Mike made his way fast back to the motel and noticed happily the child was still sleeping. He took a quick shower and decided to take a nap himself also.

Miss Violet Parr sat on a stool next to her daughter Isabella in Holland Park.

Miss Parr had always felt that Holland Park, as a district and a public park in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, was one of the most romantic parks in west central London.

Since nature and greenery were becoming more and more scarce in a City like London, Miss Parr held this pretty little English Park in the highest regard, due to its abundant wildlife and secluded hideaways.

Miss Parr was painting today in a secluded area of the park.

Her oil paints were spread on a colourful pallet before her as she commanded the various strokes and splurges of colour upon the canvas. Her daughter, Isabella, lay on her stomach across the greenery of the grass with some pencil colours and some paper drawing what seemed to be a corpse in some funeral.

Violet, having decided the time was not appropriate to delve into her daughter’s psychology, focused her efforts into her current painting.

The painting, that was consuming all her artistic talent and capability, was that of a portrait. Though painting and art were not Miss Parr’s strongest talent, they were not her weakest by far.

“The artists the Metropolitan Police decide to hire these days...” Violet muttered to herself in defiance. “Laughable, just laughable talent... Why that portrait looked more like Pierre than Mr. Bane himself!”

An hour passed by before Miss Parr's brush shrunk back and a content smile appeared upon her face.

“Now there is the Joseph Bane we know and love...” She turned to Isabella. “What a charming little drawing Isabella, but pray tell mother, who is that woman laying in that yellow coffin?”

“C’est toi maman!”

“Heavens...” Miss Parr reflected for a moment on Sigmund Freud’s theories and teachings. She then shook her head and showed Isabella the portrait she just completed. “And who is this?”

Isabella stared blankly at the portrait for a moment before turning her head with a toss. “Monsieur Fléau de Joseph.”

Miss Parr bypassed her daughter’s rudeness and looked to her artwork with a deeply satisfied smile. "Well done Violet!"

Miss Parr relied on whatever information she managed to retrieve from her conversations with her brother, Leopold.

She knew Mr. Bane’s temporary residence was upon the Embankment Pier and she had decided to exhaust all modes of transport available to Mr. Bane within the radius of Embankment.

She had, quite sensibly decided to start with railway travel, and since Victoria Station was the closest, most convenient station with wide national routes, she had made up her mind to fish for any sightings of him in and around Victoria Station.

To her surprise, the third man she spoke to gave her some interesting information when she flashed the portrait before him. “Oh yes… I remember him... a common old bum… cunning one at that, tried to con a free ride on my watch.”

“Did he manage to?” was Violet’s first question.

“Of course not! Not on my watch he wouldn’t. I threw him and his dog out of my train.”

“Where was the training heading, Sir?” Violet’s voice grew impatient.

“Now that’s none of your business is it Miss?” The conductor was starting to get gruff.

Violet smiled.

She firmly believed that charming people was the best way to get anywhere with them. “I truly, apologise, kind Sir. You were very kind to help me and I shall be forever in your debt."

She pulled the painting away from his sight and adjusted her large purple hat as she continued. "I am a private detective, and a barrister with various connections and acquaintances in and around London. If I could be of any future help then please…”

She handed him her business card and immediately turned on her heels and started walking away.

Just then, she heard the staggering response she anticipated. “Wait… Miss… the train was ‘eading to Brighton.”

Violet turned and immediately asked. “…and where did you have the gentleman disembark?”

“’Scuse me?”

“You said you had him and his dog immediately off the train…” Violet’s voice grew impatient again. “Where do you ‘throw’ them off the train?”

“…well… Brighton…” said the man sheepishly.

“I see,” Violet rolled her eyes. “Was there a little girl with him?”

The man’s eyes widened suddenly realising the resemblance between the woman standing before him and the girl he saw with the man. “That man did not kidnap your girl did ‘e ma’am?”

Violet’s answer was sharp when it came. “He most definitely did not.”

Meanwhile, Makensie was in the guest room of Violet's apartment, while Cody sat on the floor playing with his toys.

"Mommy, you look so pretty", Cody cooed.

"Well, thank you, my dear son", Makensie said, smiling.

She was getting ready to go out for dinner with Clift, and was just finishing up her hair.

"Oh, you look just beautiful, Ms Brewer", Ms Cevasco said from the doorway.

Makensie chuckles, and said, "Since when am I MS Brewer to you?"

"Just playing around", Ms Cevasco, said laughing.

Makensie was nervous for some reason, and was babbling on, "I do not know why I get so nervous when I go on a date with that man. This isnt like it is our first date"

"OBBBBviously not", Ms Cevasco said, as she glances over at Cody.

They chuckled, as Makensie said, "You are rotten", and threw a napkin at her, as she walked past her.

At that time, Clift walks in, and said, "You ready?"

"Sure am! Just let me get my shoes on", Makensie said, rushing into her room to grab them.

Ms Cevasco walks out, and said, "A woman is never ready on time, are they Mr Garrett?"

"SHE isn't anyway, and what is with the lastname calling?", he said, smiling.

"I HEARD THAT", Makensie yelled from the bedroom.

Ms Cevasco laughs, then said, "I'm practicing this nanny talk"

Clift smiled, and said, "Nanny talk? What is that?"

"Oh you know.....I'm like Mak's maid/babysitter/nanny/housekeeper/butler/cook all in one so, I'm just talking the role too", she said, chuckling.

Clift laughs, then said, "Makensieeee, dearrr, come on, we must get going!"

Walking out quickly, Makensie said, "I'm coming! I'm coming!"

Cody comes flying out of the room ...

"Daddy! Daddy! Daddyyyyyy!", he said, smiling, as he flew in his Dad's arms.

Clift scoops him up, swinging him around, and said, "Hey there sport! How's my boy doing?"

"Doing good Daddy! Doesn't Mommy look pretty?", Cody said, smiling.

Clift looks at Makensie, kisses his son on the cheek, and said, "Your Mommy always looks pretty"

Makensie stands up, after getting her shoes on, and said, "Ok, I'm ready. Now we are off to Khan's. Give Mommy a kiss, Cody"

He leans out of his Dad's arms, and kisses her on the lips, as his little arms slide around her neck.

"I love you, sweety! You be good for Ms Cevasco", Makensie said, grabbing her purse.

Clift kisses his boy on the cheek, and said, "See you when we get back"

Clift stood back, and let Makensie walk out in front of him, as Ms Cevasco said after them....

"You kids be good, and be careful! Enjoy your dinner!"

As Clift and Makensie walked down the walk, Makensie said, "Hopefully, we can have a peaceful dinner"

"What do you mean? Why wouldn't we?", he said.

She looped her arm through his, and said, "Oh, I don't know. We are detectives, and seems excitement follows us everywhere"

He laughs, and said, "So right you are"

They walk on in comfortable silence, looking forward to their meal together.

*Brighton - Harborside Motel - room 21 - 22:00hr*

Little Victoria was admiring herself in the mirror, apparently enchanted by the new dress she wore. She took small pirouettes just like a little ballerina.

Mike just stood there watching her as if he couldn’t get enough of her innocent beauty. He didn’t know whether it was because she was practically his only real link to his past or simply because he thought she was his daughter, but he indeed seemed to experience strong feelings for the kid.

“You look just like a little princess” he said as he appeared in the mirror, placing a hand onto her shoulder, smiling.

She looked at his reflection and smiled back, then took a deep bow as a ‘thank you’ as she did before. It seemed a little strange to him that she had such elegant manners, as nothing that he found out so far about his own person had given him the impression of having been more than a common man.

“Alright, kid” concluded him after a couple of minutes. “We need to go now. Daddy’s got a…meeting.” He looked around in search of the dog. “Hey…where did Pierre go?”

Victoria started to also look around the room, posing the usual exaggeration in her gestures as children usually do and then looked up to Mike and raised her shoulders, turning around both her palms.

“Well…maybe he’s around” concluded McCabe in the end. “He’ll show up later, I guess…so let’s go.”

He stretched his hand towards his daughter, but she stepped back, raised both her hands and smiled large at him.

“Oh well…then carrying it is” he said with a large smile, picking her up into his arms.

*Brighton - McKinley’s Brewery - main lounge - 22:20hr*

“Anna! What a nice surprise to find you here!” exclaimed Mike seeing at the bar the waitress from the restaurant that day.

“McCabe…” she smiled “and also your little lovely daughter! Come here, take a seat.” She was all honey. “What in the world are you both doing here…Mike? Can I call you Mike?”

He nodded smiling. “You can call me anything you want, darling…as long as you called me tonight!”

“Well…I guess we have a naughty father on our hands…” flirted her back. “ You sure about this, sugar? You…don’t exactly seem to be in your best shape, you know…” She touched a cut above his eyebrow. “What ever happened to you, anyway?”

“Oh yeah…” Mike said, remembering the cuts and scratches on his face. “Apparently…I ran into a window. Don’t ask me any details though.”

“Secretive, huh? I hope you’re not going to get mysterious on me, McCabe.”

“Don’t worry, hun…I have quite enough mystery into my life right now.” He tried a cunning smile and took a seat, lifting Victoria up on a stool between them. “Say…” he continued “…I need to ask of you a little favor…”

Anna lit up a cigarette and gave him a half flirting and half mocking smile. “You just got into town today and not only you want to crawl between my sheets, but you’re already asking favors too?”

Mike laughed.

“Now seriously, girl. I booked myself a fight tonight, but since I don’t know anybody in this town I had to bring the kid with me. Would you be kind thus kind enough to watch her while I go do what I came here for?”

“Now that’ll be my pleasure” answered her. “Hey…did you feed her anything this evening?”

“Not really…no” replied Mike tangled.

“Men!” Anna exclaimed in disapproval. “Hey, Ben!” shouted her at the tender. “Go fix me something for this little doll!”

“Coming right up!” the answer came.

“Alright, she’s covered now, McCabe.”

“Good” said him looking at the clock. “I have to go get ready for the fight.” He leaned a bit towards his daughter and gave her a small forehead kiss. “You be good now, Victoria. Stay here with this nice lady. Daddy’s got something to do. Ok?”

The little girl posed discontented and somehow frightened by the idea of losing him from her sight, but then the food came and she just started to eat slowly.

“Don’t let her out of your sight!” shouted Mike last at Anna as he was swallowed by the crowd.

“Don’t worry…” she replied “…I won’t!” Her voice appeared somehow strange, but McCabe didn’t pay attention.
