The Rocketeer,

Minute 068: One Good Reason

July 26, 2017


“Night and Day” continues to play in the South Seas Club, as Cliff continues to explain to Jenny what’s going on, as they crouch underneath the Big Fish fountain.

“They have your picture, the one from the Gee Bee” says Cliff. “Jenny, prepare yourself for a shock: I’m The Rocketeer.”

“The Rocke-who?” asks Jenny.

“Aw, for cryin’ out loud,” says Cliff, frustrated, “haven’t you read the papers?”

“No,” says Jenny, “I’ve been working all day!”

Cliff shakes his head, and then notices Mike and Spanish Johnny on the stairs. “It’s them!” he says, “The ones with the snapshot!” Cliff turns Jenny to face him.

“You’ve got to get out of here,” says Cliff. “I want you to get in a cab, right now – – go to your mom’s in Redlands and stay there until you hear from me, okay?”

Jenny glares at Clifford. “Give me one good reason I should believe… any of this?” says Jenny.

Cliff pauses, and looks pleadingly at Jenny. “Because if anything ever happened to you, I’d go out of my mind. I swear I would.”

Jenny pauses, and says, “Oh,” in a quiet voice. Cliff kisses Jenny.

Meanwhile, Neville is growing impatient at his table. He glances about, and notices something floating in Jenny’s soup bowl. Reaching into the bowl, he retrieves the message that Cliff left for Jenny earlier.
