“Close the door! Mabel’s out!”
“What?” Becker quickly closed the door to Abby’s flat.
At that moment something brushed against his leg. He looked down and froze.

“You found her!” Abby strode over, amusement in her eyes as she manhandled the snake off him and cradled it in her arms. Becker hoped to god she hadn’t heard the tiny squeak that escaped his lips when it was finally gone. For a moment he thought he had got away with it.
Then Abby leaned close and whispered, “Do I get bonus points if I can get you to make that noise in bed tonight?”
