The Previous Owner #29


I had a feeling it would've been more incredible had I never talked with Mo, but I was looking forward to hearing anything Becky could tell me that Mo couldn't.

"You've got yourself a weird retreat there, boss. That house has changed hands every ten years since 1979. And from what I've found out, the people that own it just disappear and it reverts to the bank and they sell it to some other schmuck. And now you're the schmuck."

"Thanks a lot, Becky."

"Sorry, boss. I got a little carried away. Anyway, it's quite a weird piece of property."

    Gee thanks Becky! With friends like you, who needs enemies?

    Yeah, I was trying to establish a little bit of the world he came from, so she's like the wise-ass Millennial type.
