“What are you doing here, Tulip?” Bernie said.
“Stripping, basically,” she said, still patting me. She was an expert! We were in the dressing room at Club Utopia, which I should probably remind everybody about.
“Um,” said Bernie, “uh. I meant are you still with Livia, or … “
“Oh, yes! I’m learning so much from her. This is just something extra, sort of a busman’s holiday, Livia says.” Maybe I should also remind everybody that Livia Moon runs a place in Pottsdale called Livia’s Friendly Coffee and More. Tulip works in the more part. “But can I ask you the same thing?” Tulip said. “What are you doing here?”
“Looking for Astrid Jason,” Bernie said. “Do you know her?”
Tulip nodded. “I hope she comes back soon. Not that I mind storing her stuff. But it’s a big responsibility.”
“You’re storing her stuff?”
“Just a couple suitcases,” Tulip said.
“Can we see them?” Bernie said.
“Well, I don’t know,” Tulip said. “I promised I’d take good care of them.”
“Then we’re on the same side,” Bernie said.
