Chapter 9

A Chapter by Jemma Packman

Charlie enters a small cafe and walks directly to a table where an older man is sat. Charlie pull a chair out, sits down at the table and says "Hello, Uncle Perc. What do you want?"

Perc says "Hello, Charlotte. How have you been? You look good. Do you want a drink?"

Charlie says "Don't."

Perc says "Don't what?"

Charlie says "Pretend you give a s**t about me. You haven't seen or spoke to me in how long and now you ring me, telling me dad wants to see me but to meet you first. What the hell is going? And how did you get my number?"

Perc says "You're listed. Your father does want to see you.."

Charlie says "So where is he?"

Perc says "I'll take you to him."

Charlie says "Why? Why didn't he come here? He wants to see me but I'm making all the effort. What aren't you telling me?"

Perc says "Your father needs you to find a woman for him."

Charlie says "Excuse me?"

Perc says "He was having an affair, she got pregnant, found out he was married and disappeared."

Charlie says "What's it got to do with me?"

Perc says "Charlotte, this is your family."

Charlie says "I've not been part of that family for years. Try again."

Perc says "He's your father and he's asking for your help."

Charlie says "Why? Is he leaving the mega-b***h? He wouldn't be able to hire a PI. She monitors everything."

Perc says "Don't talk about your mother like that. If you come with me, he can explain himself."

Charlie says "Where do you keep trying to take me. Where is he?"

Perc says "Hospital."

Charlie says "What? Why?"

Perc says "He's dying. Now, are you coming or not?"

Charlie says "I can't say no now, can I?"

Perc says "Car's outside."

Charlie and Perc leave the cafe and walk to the car. Charlie says "Uncle Perc, what makes him think I can track down this woman?"

Perc says "I'm not sure. He said she was a looker so you'd probably know her. Your dad said you're a real babe magnet."

Charlie says "Babe magnet? How old are you two? And I hope you said looker."

Perc says "Get in the car." Charlie and Perc get in the car.
