Maria was in a navy Hemingway flapper dress that looked like it came out of the nineteen twenty’s and saw a private eye detective that looked a lot like her brother searching for clues. As she walked up to him the private eye pulled out a notepad and a pencil with some notes written on it.
“Brother?” asked Maria not sure if it was him or not.
“Sorry, Miss I’m not your brother. Do you know anything about this croc?” asked the private eye finally looking up at her.
“Your eyes are a different colour sir and I’m deeply sorry. I’ve been in his place once or twice but was manly working the floor. Never did meet the man himself but I’ve heard rumors” said Maria not really sure how she knows all this.
“Thanks, miss I’ve swear I’ve been working this case forever. I was close about five years ago but I can’t remember for the life of me what is was. My place caught fire and all my notes with them. I did have a photo of my crazy fox uncle in Egypt in there along with some other personal items. What are these rumors mam?” asked the private eye hoping to solve this case before his time is up for good of this life.
A skunkat and fox walk into the bar as if they were there with a hidden agenda in mind. They both order a drink as this male bunny was looking at them confused.
“What do you, mean you don’t have any Rum?” said the fox slamming there paws into the table quite upset.
“I’m sorry sir, we haven’t received any in quite a long time. The croc been taking it all. We’re going to have to shut down, soon as were almost out of everything” said the bunny hoping they don’t cause a ruckus.
“The croc, up’s the price by tenfold and we can’t even afford one at those prices for the everyday folk. We’re going to teach that, croc a lesson they soon won’t forget” said the fox quite annoyed.
The two of them stormed out of the place and wanted to give the croc a piece of their mind. The detective thought this was quite important as everything is connected to this case he’s working on.
“By the way, sir I never did get your name and I can’t remember for the life of me what town were in. I swear its Saith but that can’t be right, can it?” asked Maria wanting a few answers herself.
“The name Mako, miss and the town is Pounce…” said Mako before the place disappeared and ended up in front a building from the twenties.
“So close” thought Maria and curious where she is.
She she’s a chipmunk that looks upset and decides to follow her without being seen. They end up at the private eye that she already talked to and overheard the whole conversation of Scott along with her name being Lucy. As Lucy starts to walk back towards her she’s taken to the same building but this time on fire.
“Burn it to the ground, boys as this dick has been causing way to much trouble for us” said this fur she couldn’t make out from where she was standing.
“Boss, I didn’t expect to see you here. I thought you were taking care of business at the casino. I guess the loss ends are all tied up” said the fur that she still couldn’t see.
The boss walks around the building and over hears what the bosses name is. She could solve this very quickly if she could find that damn cat. Maria walks quickly in the opposite direction and couldn’t find him anywhere at all.
“The one time, I need a dick around badly” thought Maria and giggled a little to herself.
With that thought Maria sees him off in the distance only to wake up in the hospital bed in the present day.
“I was so close, to help him out” thought Maria I hope he solved it.
Maria thought this couldn’t be real but maybe it was. She lied there in thought and feel back asleep in a nice peaceful dream that was about reuniting with her brother.
