She met Hector Rios at Del Finos, an Italian restaurant on a better side of town. She always chose restaurants she had not been to, in case her client acted a fool. She wouldn’t feel bad about not returning if they got kicked out.
There was a usual spiel she went through with her clients when she was about to give them bad news, but not this time. Hector was the owner of a very successful carpet cleaning company, but even at 56 years old his mother was very active in his life. She had suspected Hector’s wife of 16 years of being unfaithful. She had hired Sandy to find the truth. Half way through the process, they told Hector about the investigation. They had decided that Hector would be the point person from that point on.
“Hector, she is not the angel you think she is. Don’t open this package until I’m gone. And I don’t plan on sharing it with your mom, even though she was the one who hired me. If anything happens to this woman, copies of these photos will end up with the sheriff.”
“She can’t be that bad. She’s the mother of my child.”
Sandy handed her the envelope.
“Don’t open it until I’m gone,” she said and picked up the check.
She was in the parking lot getting into her car when her phone rang. It was Hector. She hit ignore. People with money might not marry for money, but those without it do. Hector’s mother may have been a busy body, but she was right.
