Cleo gave Dorothy a lift to HQ next morning. Gary had got a lift home in a patrol car and spent most of the night smarting about the meeting. He had left for HQ very early without breakfast. Cleo was worried about Gary, but Dorothy had merely said that he had it coming for not being upright.
To give him credit, Gary was pleased to see them and hugged them both warmly. Well maybe he hugged Cleo very warmly indeed.
"This is a surprise, Ladies! But actually, Dorothy, we should have a special little talk, anyway."
