"Who you know well, of course," the detective looked grumpy. "Lynette, this cloak-and-dagger business is playing havoc with your nerves. Mr. Rake called me last night, you know..."
"Let's just say I suspected," she shot back. "Daddy, London's in deadly danger, and all you can do is worry about my love life. I can cope with Mike, you know that..."
"After New Year," came the reply, "I was hoping you'd be doing a lot more than that. The Green Man's trouble, Lynette, danger."
"And that's what I love about my life," she shot back. "I'm a big girl now, daddy, I can choose my own way."
"You think you're a big girl," the detective growled. "You're not too big to have a good spanking one of these days..."
"Daddy!" Ms. Madison exclaimed, "London's in danger!"
"And so are you!" her father barked. "If you so much as step out of line, so help me, I'll have you down here before you know what's hit you - understand!"
"No," Ms. Madison replied defiantly, before putting down the 'phone.
