Gotcha

Cleans up dirt, dust and pet hair with ease. Paper trails, however … that's a different story.

Harold had been with the Postal Service for over 40 years and he was 3 weeks away from retirement. He was exhausted after a long day and was making his last delivery when the lady with the cigarette stepped out of the shadows and scared the bajeebus out of him.

"Harold, is it?" Sylvia said to him between drags.

"Yes, Ma'am. That's right," he replied hesitantly. The woman appeared disheveled and a bit unnerved. She seemed hyper aware of her surroundings, but never took her eyes off of him as she spoke.

"I need you to do me a favor, Harold. And it will require your absolute discretion."

The breath caught in Harold's chest as he waited for her to explain. The last thing he wanted was to get tangled up in some shady business and risk losing his pension.

"Oh, I don't know, Ma'am," he said. "Interfering with the mail is a Federal off …"

"I need you to forward my mail, Harold," she interrupted.

Harold smiled and sighed with relief. "Well that's really quite simple, Ma'am. All you have to do is fill out a forwarding request with your new add …"

But Sylvia interrupted him again. "It's not that simple, Harold. I absolutely cannot leave any paper trails. No, I need you to do this under the radar, unofficially. It is extremely important that you do not disclose this address to anyone. If anyone comes snooping around, you need to deny ever having this conversation. Have I made myself clear?"

Sylvia handed him a white envelope containing the address and a thick stack of twenties. Harold's eyes widened as he thumbed through the money. When he looked up, she was gone.

Two and a half weeks later, he was marking another package with the new address when the lady appeared again. Only this time, she wasn't smoking, and her hair was different.

"Oh, hi there," he said as he handed her the box. "Listen, this is my last week so you're going to have to come up with another way to get your mail."

When she didn't respond, he just shook his head. "Well, good luck to you then," he said as he turned to leave.

Millicent looked down at the package in her hands. She tore back the tape and opened it up.

"Mint Hard Floor Cleaner," she said aloud. "PerfectEdge™ technology cleans along walls and edges and around chair legs and other obstacles."

Millicent scoffed and sat down on the stairs with the box in her lap. "Really, Sylvia? You go into hiding but you can't live without your fancy vacuum with the NorthStar® Navigation System and Rechargeable Power Source?"

She sat motionless for a minute when something dawned on her. The mailman had been writing something on the front of the package. A forwarding address? She pushed down the top of the outer cardboard box so that she could read the label.

She had interrupted him before he had a chance to finish writing it, but he didn't need to. She knew the address right away. And it only confirmed what she had already suspected after her surprise visit a week earlier.

"515 NW 9 …"

The home Sylvia had once shared with Rod.
