So many questions I longed to ask, but I doubted the Constable would even know where to begin.
“I was young and in love, and when you asked me to promise to keep our relationship a secret, I wasn’t about to argue or do anything to jeopardize our future.”

“If it weren’t late, I’d ask you to come in. Karen thought I was crazy to settle on the first thing I saw, but I knew.”

Wasn’t a warning standard procedure for a taillight out? How did that happen on a new car? I needed to ask him for clarification later.
