“I was being followed today,” said Cedric Gorman, CFO of the renowned Huber Moneda Hospital, to his wife, Sophia, human resources manager for Cactus Sunrise East medical clinic.
They were sitting on the patio of their condominium, admiring a spectacular red desert sunset.
“Really?” said Sophia. “How do you know?”
During his former less-than-respectable life, long before accepting the post at HMH, Cedric had benefited from certain highly developed skills, such as those involved in detecting a tail. However, in this case, not much skill was necessary.
“Obvious,” he said. “Someone ducking around corners, staring in random windows.”
“Geez. Who?” said Sophia.
“The new GI doctor,” said Cedric. “I have an appointment with him in three days for a colonoscopy.”
