Having dropped Joanna and Darlene off at the hotel and expecting that their stay would be of some considerable length, Gordon found himself with an open-ended segment of free time on his hands. The sight of a milage marker to Margate a little before he dropped the girls has brought the vague recollection of a happenstance to his mind.
A few days earlier Gordon had amused himself aiding the questioning of a suspect in the explosion incident, As usual the official examiners were being somewhat squeamish about any use of force to pursue the enquiries. Gordon had no such qualms and was with the aid of some duct tape and his ever-handy petrol cigarette lighter he was in a few minutes able to extract all the information required. Brian Peacehaven has a very low threshold to pain particularly when the aroma of singing flesh was added to the equation.
Under goal directed examinations prisoners are inclined to share the most innocuous facts they momentarily consider might steer their questioners attention away from the any subject they think might result in an increased intensity of enquiry. Peacehaven has decided that trying to distract Gordon with tales of the possibility of the physical available diversions was such an appropriate ploy to utilize. Having been a somewhat successful pimp quite naturally her imagined that dangling some possible physical liaisons, through his tutelage, was a promising tool to employ.
Peacehaven was quite certain the ladies under his control would be most happy to extend any favors requited to Gordon quite readily to alleviate his own ongoing suffering. Naturally Gordon ignored the offerings but took careful note of every detail Brian spluttered in tortured hope, including names, descriptions, address’s, and haunts.
A particular identity had festered in Gordons memory since that successful inquisition, and a location within the boundaries of the old section of Ramsgate town had resurfaced as a result of the milage signs appearance, and the unmistakably heightened feelings of an amorous nature raised by Darlene Gillespie’s blatant flirtatiousness.
