Dead Rite chapter 162.06

“Well...” Harold patted his pockets. “I'm afraid I don't have my wallet on me.”

“Yes, you do.” Sefskapoi pulled a wallet out of Harold back trouser pocket. “You put it in there for safe keeping.”

“I did?” Harold stared at it. He'd never seen it before in his life. “I did, yes.” He took it from Sefshapoi. “I apologise for my appalling memory. I don't usually keep it in my back pocket. To easy for thieves to get their hands on it there.” He flicked open the leather and was able to catch the name on the bank card. Linda Benson.”

“Linda? Isn't that a girl's name?”

Harold swallowed. “Yes. But I...er...”

“It's character building.” Sefskapoi handed the office a second wallet. “You can call me Trixie. With an X.”
