Keeping In Favors

You scratch my back, I'll weed yours.

Giovanni stared at Nestoras, then looked down at the weeder in Nestoras's hands, and then looked back up at Nestoras. "In case you hadn't noticed, pally," he said, "I don't have a lot of greenery problems here in the city. Now what's this little visit about?"

"A little birdy told me you had a hand in some landscaping business upstate," Nestoras said, extending the Fiskars Deluxe Telescoping Weeder towards Giovanni. "I thought maybe this might be something you could use."

Giovanni scoffed, then let Nestoras in to his apartment. "You mean my idiot nephew's business? Please. I got enough problems keeping my building and its tenants from falling apart all around me. But yeah, I guess a stand-up weeder could help him and his crew out. What's it to you, though?"

"Come on. Can't a friend give another friend a gift every once in a while?"

"Oh, geez, listen to you. Don't you sound mysterious." Giovanni closed the door behind Nestoras and motioned for him to have a seat on his couch. "Look, Nessy, I've got a leaky faucet, a stuck window, and a couple of empty units I gotta clean up before the end of the day. Maybe you should just put down the serrated, stainless steel clawed 'gift' you got there and stop wasting my time."

Nestoras made sure the extra-long, adjustable telescoping handle was at its shortest setting and sat down. "A friend of mine is missing. Someone I care about very much."

"That's a shame, pally. But - and I don't mean to be rude here - what's that got to do with me?"

"I thought... I mean, aren't you still sort of, you know, 'connected' to..."

"Hey, hey, hey, what is this? That was a long time ago, Nessy. I don't fool around with that stuff anymore, you hear? I went legit years ago when I started running this place, alright? What, are you wearin' a wire or something? Are you with the Feds?"

"No, of course not! But you still know people involved in, well, shadier practices, yes? Or people that might know people that could help me with my little situation?”

Giovanni took a moment to consider Nestoras. Maybe he and the rest of the supers weren't the most social outside the monthly poker game, but Nessy never struck him as a bad guy. It must have taken a lot of courage to even ask him for the favor, Giovanni figured. “Maybe I do. Unofficially, you understand.” He motioned to the weeder. "About how far does that thing extend?"

"The box said 39.5 to 48 inches."

Giovanni nodded. "Stupid idiot nephew. At least I don't have to go out lookin' for a Christmas present for him this year. Alright, Nessy, let's get down to brass tacks. Who's this friend of yours that's gone missing?"
