Dad leaned back from his laptop to pantomime catching a fish.
Quietly laughing then to Astella, who resumed looking out the window.
Neither saw Detectives Haller and Jasso.
The former eventually reaching in and closing the laptop.
Put it under his arm.
The latter, a former Crimson Tide Football center,
lifted Dad by the elbow.
Astella noticed now.
But the three left so quickly!
She just stared out the window once more, eventually into the space the squad car had vacated.
