The man watched the couples enter and saw Artie go one way while the girls went another way. He blended in with crowd until he was ready to make himself known.

Pet was riding down the street and saw Mark waving at her. she pulled her horse up near him.

"Hey McCoy. I talke dto the boss and you're all set with a job if you pass a little test." Pet eyes him nervously.

"What kind of test?"

"The boss wants you to bring a Mr. Sheffield to his place right now. He's on his way to some fancy party."

"Why does tha bos want him?" Pet's hair was standing on end.

"Not our business. We just do like we're told. Said something about him spending too much big bills just trying to get change or something. You just go get him you hear?" Mark walked on leaving Pet to ponder this prediciment.

Geez this meant yet another trip back to Captain's Rock that night. This assignment better be worth it!

Pet turned Little Boy around and headed back to Captin's Rock. She knew she could take her time as Sheffiled/Artie wouldn't be accessible until he made it to that fancy party.

By the time she had arrived back in Captain's Rock, Pet had come up with her plan to get him out. She would use the same ruse she had used earlier in the habadashery shop, being his ranch hand with an urgent message.

"And if Mr. Gordon gets roughed up a little in the deal it will just look like I was doing my job." Pet whistled to herself as she waited outside the hotel the ball was being held in.

When they reached After seeing them enter the hotel all decked out in their finery, Pet gigging at that, Pet dismounted and tied Little Boy to the hitching post and faking her best out of breath run ran into the hotel.

Pet ran into the ball room panting for breath. She spotted Mr. Sheffield and ran to him pulling him away from his dane with a well dressed lady.

"Sorry to bother you again, sir, but this is urgernt. May I speak with you outside?" Pet pulled him from the room. Artie yelling his apologies back to the lady.

When they reached the hotel porch Sheffield pulled loose from her and glared.

"Just what the hell do you think you're doing? I was working back there." Artie scolded her.

"Doing my job, SIR. I was sent here to kidnap you and take you to be the boss of the ring here in town but if you'd rather I can just go back and tell him I failed because you were trying to get..."

"PET!" Artie admonished her and Pet merely snickered.

"Oh get a grip. Now are you comign with me or do I need to tie and gag you, althougth the gag might not be a bad idea." Artie rolled his eyes and climbed on her horse and Pet swung up behind him and they headed for the boss's home.

Apple, as Fleur, debuts that evening in her first dancehall review. She practiced with the other girls all afternoon, then was fitted for her costume, or what there was of it. The costume consisted of a tight fitting satin bodice, black with red stripes, a skirt that reaches just to the middle of her thigh in the front, but dips down to her knees in the back. Black striped stockings, black satin, full length opera gloves, and black kid boots with buttons and 3 inch heels round out her costume, that and dyed ostrich feathers in her hair.

The clientele is a mixture of rich businessmen from town, ranchers, ranch hands, and a little rabble. Any man with money is allowed in the door.

Apple is an accomplished dancer, from being the Deb that Pet finds so contemptable. Although she is not a featured dancer, the men find her a specatacle to behold. Most of the girls who work at the Diamond Tiger have been there for a while, so Apple is new blood. Lucky Lou is getting many compliments on her acquisition, and she decides that by the end of the week that Fleur will be a featured dancer.

Bess and Pidge had no idea what had happened yet. Alberto had introduced Pidge to Anthony, Bess saw the look in Pidge's eyes. Pidge was worried about the way she looked at Alberto? She wished Pidge could see herself Anthony Bess knew though the handsome looks plus a royalty connection were a heady combination.

Prince Anthony talked to Pidge/Frances while they danced. He told her of his childhood in Monaco and how he had been feeling pressured to marry, but he hadn't found the right person yet. He came with his cousin, Alberto to the United States for a holiday.

PF'I'm so glad my cousin made me come tonight Miss Sheffield, I was planning on staying in my room reading a book tonight.'
Pidge/Frances'Please call me Frances, your serene highness.'
Prince'Please drop the formalities, here were are just Frances and Anthony, would you care for a glass of champagne?'

Pidge nodded yes and Anthony walked her to a table and helped her get seated. Then he went off to get them some champagne.

Prince Anthony was indeed handsome. Tall with black hair and a regal air about him. Pidge could tell that he was very strong yet graceful in the way he led her in the dance. She had felt very comfortable in his arms and wondered...

How is he or is he connected in the counterfeiting?

Kit was busy making sure they ha enough ice and water brought in for the night she had the restaurant owners wife cooking up some broth for those who had fallen ill... It was odd to Kit that the only ones who were coming down with this were the business owners and sometimes their wives but no one else seemed ill.

Jim was in town trying to track down where the counterfeit money came from. He went into the saloon for drink after talking to the lady who was now working behind the bar he tipped his hat and left. He looked about the town it seemed awful quiet to him rounding the corner into the ally behind th hotel he saw the Sheriff leaned up against the side wall of the hotel. Jim walked cautiously over to him “Sheriff.”
The man looked at Jim he was awful pale”Not feeling to well Mr. West.”
Jim put the sheriff’s arm around his shoulder and helped the younger man to the church. Jim lay him on a pallet and Kit did her best to make him comfortable. “Jim you should try and get some sleep we are going to have a long day ahead of us tomorrow. This is not a typical fever it seems to be effecting the prominent people in town.”
Jim nodded and headed to the hotel to try and get some rest for the night.

Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"

Bess/Jennifer was trying to listen to Alberto and case the room at the same time. She began to scan the room for Artie. Where was he?
She thought she saw him talking to some woman in a green dress. She looked at the crowd again and another man caught her eye. She knew this man, but what was James West doing here?

The man finally made eye contact with Bess and knew she saw him. Now he just needed to get rid of that pesky duke that wouldn't leave her side. He knew since she thought he was James West, she'd make her way to him and he'd find out what he wanted to know. Although he was not Jim West, but nobody knew that but him.

He'd passed for Jim West before and he was going to be able to do it to them.

The man saw Pidge and Bess's dates leave for a moment. That's when he decided to make himself known to the women.

Pidge walks up to Bess and taps her on the shoulder. "Find out anything yet? Where's Artie?"

Bess turns to Pidge and says, "I haven't seen him but why is Jim here? Isn't he supposed to be over at Miner's Corner?"

Pidge looks over and sees him. "I have no idea why he is here. He's not supposed to be. I'd like to find out how much Prince Anthony here knows about this. (she looks around). I don't see him either. No, wait. He's over there speaking to his cousin and holding our drinks. He's going to be over here shortly. What do you want to do?"

A young man made his way past the gentleman at the door and was pointed in the direction of the Sheffield daughters. “Excuse me Ma’am; I have a telegram for your father.”

Pidge took the telegram “I will see that he gets it.” She tipped the young man and he left.

In Thortanville a young man made his way to Jeremy and spoke over the noise of the saloon “I have a telegram sir” Jeremy Nodded took the telegram and sent the young man on his way, He opened the telegram and read the code he put it away and made note to let Apple know about the out break in Miner’s Rock.

After the early performance of the floor show ended, Jeremy wended his way through the crowd of men who were growing more soused by the minute. He knew that Apple could take care of herself, but if anything happened to her he would feel responsible. That was just the type of man he was.

"Fleur, you were spectacular!" he crowed over the din backstage. He snagged her elbow and took her away from the rest of the ensemble. "There has been an outbreak in Miner's Rock...we need to find out what is happening there."

"What about our partner? Can she get there?" Apple wondered where Pet had hidden herself, she hadn't been seen for a while.

"Well I will look for her, and talk to her about our options. I don't want to leave you 'unchaperoned', so to speak. Pet and I will work it out." He smiled and patted her on the head, "Great Fleur! Keep it up and we will be rolling in the dough!" he wasn't loud when he spoke, just loud enough to allay suspicion of any lurkers.

The faux Jim made his way to Bess and Pidge. Pidge took the telegram and went to find Artie. The faux Jim made his way to Bess.

Faux Jim'Well I finally found you, I have looked for you for days, how dare you run out on me?'
Bess'Uh Sir?'
Faux Jim'Yes, you Jennifer Shefield, I must talk with you right now.'

The duke and prince came back to the table.
Duke'Sir, what is the meaning of this?'
Faux Jim'This is my fiancee, thats what!'
Duke'Jennifer, you didn't say anything about this.'
Jennifer'Uh, there must be some mistake, please Mr West, lets step outside for a moment.'

Bess got up from the table asking Prince Anthony to tell Frances where she'd gone. The faux Jim took Bess out a side door.

It was late into the night and something awoke Jim from his light sleep, The room was dark but the soft moon light gave life to shadows about the room. Jim was about to doze back off when one of the shadows came to life and headed straight for him he rolled out of the way just in time as a long hunting knife buried itself into the bed. His attacker said nothing as he lunged toward Jim.

Jim spun out of the assailents way and hit him hard across the back the man stumbled but did not fall. Jim ducked under the bigger man's fist and struck him hard in the gut and with a kick to the back the man went out the window of the hotel. Jim raced down the stairs and was there in time to see the man being handcuffed by a deputy. Jim explained to the deputy what had happend and they took the unconsious man to jail.

Jim made his way to the church and saw Kit still up and about they had brought in five more people since Jim brought in the sheriff two of them bank employees.

Kit was moving from person to person checking pulses and heart rates. Giving powders to at least help eleviate some of there did comfort. She walked over to Jim "You should be sleeping"

"Well thats hard to do when someone is trying to kill you."
"What?"
"Long story. Kit can I ask a Question?"
"Sure." She took a drink of water.
"How do you know so much?"
"I was a Doctor During the War... I posed as a man worked my way up through the ranks and became one of the best. I am not supposed to be practicing but I do anyway..."
Jim nodded trying his best wrap his mind around what he had just been told when the world begain to spin.He steadied himself and Kit looked at him. "Jim come sit down here." She gave him a drink of something when Samuel yelled for her she was at the boys side in a matter of moments.
"Pa stopped breathing."
Kit did her best but the man was gone she looked to Samuel "I am sorry." He nodded and she covered up Mr. Frankum.

It was the begining of a long night Kit set up a small lab with some things from the train to see if she could isolate what was going on...

Pet tied Arties hands to make it look good and steered Little Boy toward the Diamond Tiger.

"You know that was totally uncalled for back there," Artie said in a tone that let Pet know he was angery with her. What else is new? Pet thought.

"I had to make it look good in case I'm being watched. Look, I do not know what you are or are not like and I don't care to. This is just one more assignemtn that gets me closer to what I want."

"Just what do you want?" Artie asked curious.

"I just want to be left alone. I have no use for people anymore no matter what that air bag Grant thinks." Pet seems genuinely upset,Artie thought as Pet steered Little Boy into an alley.

"Seems you and he go back a ways. I've known him since the War and I think I would remember him talking about a character like you," Artie said trying to draw her out.

"Let's just say I made the mistake of being a Good Samaritan once...and one thing Grant can do is keep a promise. We're here anyway." Pet slid off her horse and looked at Artie, even under the stage makeup he didnt look well.

"Are you all right?"

"Uh...yeah I'm fine just been a long day." Artie slowly dismounted and sighed.

Pet led him into the back entrance to the Diamond Tiger and hoped neither Apple or Jeremy saw them.

Pet knocked on the door in the code she had been taught and when the door opened they were ushered in. Pet shoved Artie to a chair keeping an eye on him. He did not look well and even though she didn't lik ehim he was still a living being allbeit the twolegged variety.

Pet left him when a man she didn't recognize came in followed by a lady he called Lucky Lou. She made her way through the back of the building until she reached the saloon where she sauntered up to the bar and orderd a drink.

Jeremy had gone outside, while Apple circulated the room,as was the custom in dance halls for the non featured dancers. She headed to the bar first, to see if some unlucky man would buy her a drink. The barkeeper steered her toward a group of men from the business association, sitting at a table in an alcove off the bar.

"Gentlemen, how did you like the show?" she drawled at them. The men were soused, and they leered at her, but they were mostly married men with reputations to uphold, so leering was as far as they got. She laughed with them for a few minutes, received her drinks, then promising them she or another dancer would return, she headed backstage. As she passed the bar she noticed Pet standing there, taking in the scene. Apple joined her.

"You sure don't give a lick what people think of you, do you?" she leaned on the counter, still in character. "What do you know?"

"I haven't done any actual work for them yet, 'cept to deliver Mr. Gordon to the back room for interrogation. You need to keep your eyes peeled, he didn't look too good." Pet took a swig of her beer, then nodded to the barkeep, and flashed him two fingers. He brought the two whiskeys over to the agents.

"Here, you might need this to keep warm, " Pet looked over Apple's costume, snickering.

The man looked at Mr. Sheffield as he walked around the chair he was barely able to stay seated in. Finally he came to stand in front of him and smacked his fist into the palm of his hand several times.

"Mr. Sheffield, you have been going around town spending a lot of money...big bills...why?"

"Uh...that's what I brought with me I don't like a lot of small bills cluttering up my pockets."

"Now, you don't want to sit there and lie to me, Sheffield. You know that isn't true. Everywhere you go you've been spending big bills and getting a lot of small ones in change but you haven't been spending them. Tell me, what do you do wtih them?"

Lucky Lou begins to notice something is not right about this man. She sees the sweat building on his forehead and his uneven breathing.

"You'd better question him quick, then get him out of here," LL said, "Look at him, he's been handling the money," the man nodded.

"Mr. Sheffield, you need to tell me why you are trying to get the money...why do you want the small bills?" When Artie doesn't readily answer the man slaps him backhanded nearly knocking him out of the chair.

"I...uh...that's what I brought with me I don't like a lot of small bills cluttering up my pockets." Sheffield/Artie reapeted himself.

"That is the wrong answer," the man struck him again this time drawing blood.

"My daughters like the small bills...makes them feel like they have a lot of money when in reality they only carry a small amount." Artie was trying to concentrate as he swayed back and forth.

"Give it up, you aren't getting anything out of him. Dump him in the alley. He's ol dand senile anyway so I doubt he knows a thing." LL said as she left the room.

The man pulled Artie from the room and took him back to the alley door and tossed him out, laughing as he fell to the ground.

Apple readily accepted the whiskey, raised the glass to her partner, then quickly downed it. "Thanks friend. You stickin' around for the late show?" Pet snickered again. "I guess so, as long as they don't kick me out!"

"My uncle, Sol, is hangin' around...you should look him up." Apple eyed Pet, and Pet nodded.

"Sure will do that, Fleur." Apple excused herself, heading into the dressing room to adjust her costume and her make up.

As Apple made her way to the room she noticed a scuffle. A group of Lucky Lou's bouncers were hauling what appeared to be a drunk outside into the alley. Lucky Lou was holding the door for the men.

"Fleur, honey, c'mere," she called to Apple. Apple went to the door. "You want a cigarette, girly?" Apple accepted and lit the cigarette from Lou's match. As she did so, she stepped into the alley for a breath of fresh air, and to keep an eye on what was happening.

"I think that you will make a fine featured dancer, girly. Can you handle it?" Louella eyed her. Apple turned away from the scuffle in the alley where the drunk had started retching, "Yeah, I've done it before. Uncle Sol told you that. The money get better with the promotion?" Lou laughed a hearty laugh, "You don't need that 'uncle' of yers to speak for you, now do ya'? I'll discuss it with him, don't you worry none!"

Lou and the bouncers left, and Apple walked into the alley to get a good look at the drunk. He was moaning incoherently, but the sound was familiar to her. She turned him over...she had seen Artemus in disguise before...Throwing the cigarette away from her she pulled Arte against the wall of the Tiger, then ran to get her partners.

Pet looked around and finally spotted "Uncle Sol" talking in a rather animated way to a small group of tipsy men clustered around him and she headed over.

"I think I coulde persuade my niece that would be a worthwhile venture. I'm sure I could talk her into that. Money does make the world go around, gentlemen." He spied Pet and quickly ended his conversation.

"May I speak to you for a moment, Sol?" Pet asked.

"Sure, friend, what can I do for you?" Sol/Jeremy pulled her over to the side.

"There's been an outbreak of some kind of virus at Captain's Rock and there seems to be a new outbreak at Miner's Rock." At this point Apple hurries over to them.

"Pet, I am glad you are still here. We've got a problem."

"What's the problem, Deb you getting too much ain on your skin with that outfit?" Pet snickered, Apple regareded her seriously.

"Later, Pet. I found Artie out back, they had slapped him around some and he couldn't tell them anything so they dumped him."

"What do you mean he couldn't tell them anything?" Jeremy asked instantly alerted.

"H'e sick, sweating, vomiting, dizzy..." Apple described his symptoms

"Well, we can't take him to the local doctor," Jeremy said, "That would blow his cover when they examined him..." he paused to think.

"I'll take him to Kit in Miner's Rock. She's a dcotor she might know what to do with him." They look at her in astonishment.

"She's a doctor?" They ask in unison.

"Yeah, now tell me where you left him...I have yet another long ride ahead of me." Pet sneapped and Apple looked at her with disdain.

"Don't go there, Deb. I haven't had any sleep in two days so back off." Pet left in the direction Apple pointed.

Bess and the faux Jim went outside.

Bess'What is your problem? Why did you blow my cover?' What are you trying to do?'
Faux J'I didn't mean to, but the SS sent me here to work with you.'
Bess'Me? I was assigned to Pidge and Artie.'
Faux J'No that's been changed, I'm your fiancee who's just found you.'
Bess opened her mouth to say something but another couple walked by. The faux Jim took the opportunity to kiss her. As soon couple walked by he didn't stop. Bess finally pushed him off.

Bess'You're are taking this to far.'
Faux Jim'Well the orders are you've taken your fiancee back, now lets got break this to your boyfriend, sister and father.'

Bess knew she couldn't argue. He was her superior, but something wasn't right about this. She followed him back inside hoping she could talk to Pidge and Artie alone without Jim. She was definitely going to ask Artie was Jim always like this. If he was, she wanted no part whatsoever of him.

The Faux Jim smiled at Bess entering the building. He'd have to work some more on his Jim West charm to get this one and get the information he needed.

Meanwhile, Pidge was talking to an angry Alberto and an amused Prince
Anthony. She was also very confused as to why Jim was all of a sudden here and posing as Bess' fiance.

"I'm sure that it's just another one of my sister's former beaux who wishes he was her fiance."

"Former beau? How many does she have?"

"I reckon I don't know. I know she's not attached to anyone and especially this one. This one just hangs around."

The duke balls up his fists. "Well, let's just take him outside and teach him how to act around a lady."

Prince Anthony's eyes flash. "And you, Miss Frances. Do you have a fiance as well?"

"Me? Heavens, no. Just my daddy, my sister and me. (she puts her hand on the Duke's arm) And please... no violence. I'm sure that my sister can handle this one."

(Pidge looks around for Artie. She doesn't like the way things are turning. She finally sees Bess returning and looking more than a little miffed).

"Oh there she is now. Excuse me, gentlemen. I'd like to talk with my sister privately."

Apple, Pet and Jeremy rushed over to Artie and Pet knelt beside him, checking his pulse. It was weak and slow. Apple pulled Little Boy over and Pet mounted him and Jeremy and Apple helped Pet pull Artie into the saddle with her.

Pet didn't seem happy to be helping him and Apple decided she would have a talk with her partner later and find out just what was her probelm with these agents.

"Pet, you look tired are you sure you're ok to do this? You've already made this trip three or four times today alone." Jeremy asked genuinly concerned.

"I'm fine, was on the road for three days with no sleep before I made it to the train. I'll be in pain that's for sure old wounds die hard." When Jeremy lifted an eyebrow Pet laughed.

"No worries, he'll get to Miner's Rock safely. I've not lost anyone yet and don't intend to start now." Pet turned her horse and rode away, trying to straighten the kinks out of her back pushing on what appeared to be a rather painful spot.

"What do you make of her?" Jeremy asked Apple.

"I think there is more to Pet than meets the eye. AT first I thought her rough exterior might be a facade but now I'm not so sure. She sure doesn't seem to like people much. I'd really like to know more about what's not in her file." Apple looked at Jeremy who merely nodded his head in agreement.

They headed back in to the saloon.

Pet took her time getting to Miner's Rock it was very late at night and she didn't want her horse to stumble. She looked at the agent she was holding, shuddering at the touch.

"Well, at least you're so out of it you don't know you're touching me...this I will overlook." Pet sighed.

Artie babbled incoherently muttering snipets of conversations Pet could only assume was his interrogation. She may not like having to work with this man but she despised their technique. There had been no need to harm him he was visibly sick.

Pet thought about how she would blow their scheme to high heaven once they discovered all they needed to and they had stopped these people. Wincing at the pain in her back that woulnd't go away like she ordered it to, Pet pulled her steed to a stop in front of the Sheriff's office. She slid off her horse, and carrying Artie fireman style she entered the office.

The Sheriff informs her Kit is at the church. Pet goes back outside and carefully lays Artie across her saddle and walks her horse over to the church where she again picks Artie up and carries him inside.

She sees Kit and gets her attention. Kit hurrys over when she sees Pet has a man on her shoulder.

"What are you doing? You KNOW you aren't supposed to be carrying something this heavy." Kit glared at her.

"What you want me to drag your precious Mr. Gordon in here by his feet?" Pet replied as she dumped him on a cot.

"What?" Kit asked as he looked at him.

"His name is Sheffield at the moment. He's got the virus. You take care of him I have to get back to Captain's Ridge and tell the ladies there then get back to Thorntonville before morning, I start work for the counterfeiters." Pet told her tiredly.

"Pet, when was the last time you slept? And you know this much riding is not good for you." Kit was all businesslike.

"I don't have a choice, Kit. You know how to deal with this better than the local quacks and they could be in the coutnerfeiter's pockets. I might not like the man but I couldn't take that chance." Pet took in Kit's worried glance.

"You worry too much, Kit. I've dealt with this for a while now, I'll manage." Pet quickly took her leave.

As she mounted Little Boy Pet realized she needed to get word to Pidge and Bess about Mr. Gordon. She rode past the telegraph office but it was closed. She would have to ride back to Captain's Whatever (she was too tired to think or care) and tell them. Pet sighed and turned her steed in the direction she needed to go.

Pet reached the hotel and slid out of her saddle bumping into her horse's side. She patted her steed and told him he was a good horse for carrying her this far without complaint.

She entered the hotel and went in search of one of the agents. Finally finding them she walked over to them. Pidge noticed her and looked in her direction.

"Ladies," Pet began when they deluged her with questions. Pet put he hand up to stop them.

"There isn't time for that right now, just listen. Artie left with me earlier. I took him to the boss of the counterfeiting ring in the back room of the Diamond Tiger." Pet paused to get her breath.

"He was interrogated but he didn't give anything away. He couldn't."

"Couldn't? Pet, you're not making any sense." Pidge said.

"I'm getting to that. And sorry but I haven't had any sleep in over three days and I've been to all three towns twice now all in one day."

"Anyway, he's sick. It's gotta be the virus. My guess is it's on the money. I'm not sick and i had to handle Mr. Gordon. So what ever you do don't touch the money without gloves."

"I have to get back to Thorntonville so I don't blow my cover. I start work with the counterfeiters tomorrow."

"Pet, are you sure you're ok? You looked wiped and in pain." Bess asked eyeing her fellow agent.

"I am on a mission. I do not have time for personal things to get in the way. I'll be fine." Pet replied as she stiffly turned to leave the room she turned back and spoke to them again,

"In case Mr. Gordon didn't tell you...if you need to reach me you can contact me through Apple or Mr. Pike at the Diamond Tiger in Miner's rock." Pet turned and left the room, leaving the two ladies to stare after her.

The faux Jim walked up to Bess and Pidge. He heard what Pet had said and found the perfect opening to infilterate. He put his arm around Bess.

Faux Jim'It will be ok, we'll go check on your father tomorrow, lets get a good night sleep.'

As the trio reached upstairs, Bess shook the faux James off.

Bess'Enough is enough, nobody is looking, get off of me!'
Pidge was speechless. Bess was usually good at going in character, but she was acting like her financee was slime. She intended to talk to Bess about when they got in the room.

Kit Made Artemus comfortable and walked over to Jim he was ill but not nearly as bad as Artemus he looked at her.

"How is he?"

"I wont lie to you Jim it doesn't look good If we can't find the antidote to this."

Jim stood dizzy he tried to walk Kit stopped him"You will be of no use to anybody out there like this."

"I can't let Artie die"

Kit spun him around "I wont let that happen trust me."

Kit was worried about Pet she knew what the problem was and wished she would rest.

The next morning Kit was making her rounds at the church checking on those still alive. She was tired but there was no time to rest to much needed to be done. Those in town who were not sick took shifts to help out. Kit had burned all the funny money she could find and hoped that they had contained it to these two towns. She was looking in her microscope trying to isolate what the problem is and not finding nothing by all rights these people should be fine yet she had lost two more in the night. She felt a hand on her shoulder and looked up it was the young man Samuel
"Miss Montgomery, you need some rest."
"Sam I will rest when this is over, How are you holding up?"
"I will be fine in time is there anything I can do?"
"Yes Sam we could use some more ice I have an idea that might help at least hold thier temps down."
"Yes Ma'am" He went to find some help to bring back the ice.

Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"

When the trio entered the room, the faux Jim hit them with another bombshell.

Faux Jim'Guess what ladies? There is no more room at this hotel. I told the desk clerk I was your brother for appearance sake.'

Bess rolled her eyes. Could this get any worse?

Pidge is really annoyed by now.

"Mister. You get the chair tonight and don't even think
of bothering us. What has gotten into you? Colonel Richmond is going to hear about this. This is so unprofessional.

(she moves to the door and places her hand on the handle)

I'm going down and talk with that clerk."

Jeremy was holding court in the Diamond Tiger, sitting front and center watching the floor show. He had Lucky Louella in his lap and was laughing and flirting with her. Playing the smarmy manager was quite enjoyable for the moment.

"Louella, you are a fine looking woman, you know that?" He was quite good with the lascivious looks. "Why don't you dance up there once in a while?"

Louella laughed her big buxom laugh,"You sure are a sweet talker, fella!" She ran her red tipped finger over his face as she talked to him about Fleur. "That niece of yours will turn a nice profit for me Sol...I asked her to be a featured dancer for us." She smiled at him.

Red flags were waving in Jeremy's mind. Apple could not be put in that situation..."Well, sure she could! She is a pretty little thing ain't she? When do you want her to start?"

"Tomorrow night, in the review. She catches on right quick. I have a private party scheduled for next week that she would need to hostess." Louella's eyes never quit moving over the review hall, but they settled on Jeremy's face now. "Well shug'? Whatcha' say? Fleur takin' the job or not?"
