Veronica was impressed - this guy
knew how to roll with the punches. She picked up the wallet, inspecting it closely. "Oh, how sweet!" She glanced up at Mr. Robin John Blake with a grin. "Celia is really starting to look like you, the poor thing." She closed the wallet and handed it back.
She dug into her shoulder bag and drew out a small stack of mail she'd grabbed on her way out that morning. Flipping through, she kept back the bills and something from Hearst, handing over a car insurance advertisement bearing her name. "This came to the house for you. Probably nothing, but Dad and I didn't want to chance it." She also drew out her wallet and laid her debit card on the table, hoping to signal the barmaid to make another pass by the table. "He says 'hi' by the way."
She cast her glance toward Barney, who seemed to have moved on to a curvaceous brunette in a clingy red dress. Veronica relaxed, visibly, then leaned in closer to Blake.
"Sorry about this," she said quietly. "I've just had a rough day, and that guy was creeping me out more than lonely barflies normally do. I really appreciate the help, Mr. Blake."
Once the waitress returned, Veronica offered her payment. "You can put his on mine, too."
