MATT CADD, PRIVATE EYE: To Know a Veil 4

Matt Cadd's legs were asleep--two hours on the carpeted floor of a Moroccan restaurant. Raven was footing the bill.

"I'm moving to Egypt, Matt."

He gagged on his thick, muddy coffee.

"There's a teacher. She's the last of a line. I can't say no."

He couldn't feel his feet.





Those are 50-piastre coins on the belt, y'know.

Hey, Matt Cadd -- our Sunday Anticipation Special. I really liked, 'He couldn't feel his feet' -- good phrase, accurate, poignant? Always a treat to hear from you, Matt. Yes.
