I ate and we talked in between her serving other customers. She said she was about to get ready to close up when ole' Pete finally came in with my keys.
"Here you are, Mr. Martin. Finally got it done."
"Great," I said as I took my keys and paid him. There was a long look exchanged between Mo and ole' Pete, then he turned and went out the door.
Mo brought me a thermos.
"Here, take some coffee. You can bring the thermos back when you come back to talk to the police. Capisce?"
I nodded, "Capisce, sweet Mo."
