“What airline did you fly on?” I took off the sling once we were in the car and out of Caren’s sight.
“Air Force cargo.” He started the engine, listened to it for a moment, then shifted gear. “Why?”
“I just wondered how you got that bulge in your armpit past civilian airport security, that’s all. Someday you’re going to learn to carry something smaller than a Colt .45.”
I didn’t hear a sound from Patricia in the back seat.
“Yeah. Right. That’s what Air Force cargo flights are for, aren’t they? To take me wherever I need to go with whatever armament I want to carry? So let’s discuss the aeronautical abilities of swine."
“Is that nine millimeter the only weapon you have with you?”
I blinked. That question certainly wasn’t difficult. I wondered when he’d get around to asking those.
“The others are still in the gun case back at my condo.”
“You didn’t even bring a spare mag?”
I glared at him. “This hasn’t exactly been a good time for me, you know. And why won’t you discuss the training camp?”
His stare didn’t waver. In silence, he finally reversed out of the drive, around Caren’s Volvo and Patricia’s Taurus, and took us into the city. Events, personified by Sherlock, seemed to be sweeping me along, but because it was him, it didn’t bother me much. Not that I’d ever tell him that.
Trust me: he doesn't really want Sherlock to discuss the training camp, and he should be grateful they're missing it.
