All my posh friends flock to the Fancy Dress Ball, attracted by whispered rumors.

“The thief looks like a Greek God!”
“Penetrating blue eyes.”
“Black curls.”
“Steals your jewels, you just smile – he’s that gorgeous!”
“Hope he takes that monstrosity Lucien gave me Christmas last. Atrocious taste, my husband.”

Everyone wears their most ostentatious treasures, hoping to attract their new hero.
By the end of the evening, ladies are showing off bare arms and necks, bragging, and Rob is flummoxed.

“Gorgeous Greek Gods everywhere, Sylvie.”
“Including you, detective,” I observe.

Everyone’s happy except my darling Rob. I must make amends.

    Of course, Rob is confused with the ladies being attracted to the handsome “thief” and willing to be robbed. (Is “Rob” – “to rob” a conscious play on words?) I am a bit confused too, when Rob is talking about “Gods.” Is there more than one handsome young man playing with the hearts of the women at the ball? I love Sylvie’s comment! “Including you, detective.” That should make him smile and… Read more »
