"How have you been, Nicki?"
She smiled weakly and poured coffee for the two detectives at her restaurant. She gave them VIP seating in the Higher Dining section to thank them for their hard work.
"I’m okay. I’m just trying to get through this day by day."
"Well, she’s behind bars now."
"Yeah.." Nicki nodded. "You guys want anything else, lemme know, okay? It’s on the house. And thank you for tightening up the security."
"You pay a homeowner’s fee in that community for a reason." One pointed out, raising his mug. "And that woman isn’t stable. You never know, she might send someone to try something."
Nicki gave them a fearful look and they reassured her fake concern.
