The call comes in through your bedroom’s ultra-secret red phone.
“You’re needed in the boardroom, Mrs. Keating. It’s regarding Cromwell.”
You hop into the Scout (which is running well at this particular moment) and bolt for headquarters, where you’re met with long faces and pajamas. Coffee and a flask of the good stuff make the rounds as you’re debriefed by Wilcox on the hostile takeover, orchestrated by the mysterious Cromwell.
There are a few key players missing from the impromptu meeting—the saboteurs. Your suspicions are confirmed.
You take off the fuzzy cardigan and hand it to Wilcox, who inadvertently mutters as he twirls the softness between his fingers. The blouse is a little more business. And the notch color, even at this hour and under these circumstances, says that your choices remain unconventional.
“I’m Cromwell,” you say. “And now we know the identity of the moles.”
All eyes fall on the empty seats.
Wilcox, still holding your cardigan, finally looks up, as if in a trance.
“It’s so soft.”
