I said, "I don't want to be here any more than you do. At least you'll get paid when you pretend to be a detective. I'm out here pretending to be one for nothing."
"Why didn't you take a fee from Mr. Sperry? He asked you."
I exhaled. "I don't know. It would make it too real if I took money for it."
"Why did you quit being a detective?"
"Why do you need to know that?" I asked.
"It might help me understand about being a detective."
I could understand that.
But I wasn't ready to share that information...
