Previously… Sexy asked Zach to help her find the nuclear suitcase she lost.

Episode 4

I really didn’t have much of a choice here. I couldn’t really trust Sexy and Shannon to track down the nuclear suitcase without me.

“When was the last time you saw the suitcase?” I sigh.

Sexy shrugs. “No idea!” She pauses for a moment. “Frankly Zachster I thought nuclear weapons were so, so last century nobody would ever care about them.”

I sigh again. “When did you take control of the suitcase?” I ask her.

Sexy smiles. “I know this one!” she says proudly. “Yesterday.”

“Ah, Ms. Sexy,” HARV says. “Protocol dictates the new head councilman takes control the first of the month. Which was today.”

“Ah, okay today…” Sexy moans.

“What time did you take control of the suitcase?” I ask.

“12:01 AM it really cut down on my party time…”

“When did you notice the suitcase was missing?” I ask.

“Just an hour or two before I called you. I was hoping I just put it in the wrong place.”

“Now who had the suitcase before you?” I ask.

Sexy smiles. “I know that one! It was Helena Gevada. You know her right?”

“Yeah, she’s my fiancée’s mom,” I say. I pause for a nano. “Now Sexy, when you received the suitcase from Helena did you check to see if it was the real one?”

Sexy just glares at me.

I return her stare.

“Actually Helena said it wasn’t necessary,” Sexy admits. “So the first time I looked at it was over breakfast this morning after Shannon insisted…”

Behind Sexy I see Shannon nodding her head knowingly.

Okay, now it was obvious what my first step was here. I had to talk to my future mother in-law. Vote below on what will happen next or if reading in email click Take our Poll.
