“I’ll look into it. Kate, don’t think that it’s you against him. That’s how you talk about it, but it’s not true. He’s by himself, but you have all of us. We’re in it together and we’ll stand against him together. You have a lot of goodwill in this city.”
“Thanks, Jim.” That was unexpected.
“And if you ever turn into your father and feed on this city like a leech, I will kill you.”
Really? Not even in your wildest dreams. “If I ever turn into my father, you will kneel and pledge yourself to me, Jim. And you will be happy doing it.”
His expression turned flat.
I winked at him, got up, and left.

 

Wow, scary Kate
