“Even with this money, I can’t afford to pay you, Regan.”
“The judge made Roberts pay me. I earned nearly as much as you, but I refused to take even a penny over. You’re the victim, you deserve the most. Oh, by the way, Roberts wants you to sign a letter of receipt.”
“Not on your life. Not until I get my apology.”
“Exactly what I said. To that end, he wants to meet at his office tomorrow.”
“Not on his turf. I don’t want the officious bastard to sneak in cameras for a photo op.”
“Also what I told him. So, he agreed to meet here, tomorrow at ten a.m.”
“That’s checkout time. Everyone will see him and I’ll be busy. Tell him either six a.m., or ten p.m. His choice. We’re making this easy for me, not him. And he can hand me the check personally, along with my letter.”
The paper rustled again.
“As you wish. I’ll call with the time.”
