Chapter 6
A Break-through

When I wake up the next morning, my face is swollen from where I have been slapped. I skip work for the next three days until the welt is less prominent.
    Once I finally drag myself back to the office, I find Roy sitting at his desk throwing cards into his hat. When he sees me, he jumps up, knocking the hat to the ground, cards going everywhere. “Where have you been and what’s wrong with your face? Are you okay?!” Roy asks, worry apparent on his face.
    “Bar fight,” I say. He doesn’t even know I’m married.
    “But you’re a woman!” Roy says. “I mean, I know you’re tough, but people shouldn’t hit women! Least of all, you! If I would have been there, I would have kicked his stinking butt! As a matter of fact, I still might! Who is he!?”
    “People don’t know I’m a woman, you can‘t kick someone‘s butt for hitting another guy. Plus, I don‘t even know who it was,” I lie, and Roy considers it a moment before nodding.
    “Well… I still want to kick his butt… But, we’ve got a break-through in the case!”
    I look at him, eyebrow raised. “Make that two.”
