Detective James Arbuthnot is on the case again. One last interview to close out the file on Anna, the woman who disappeared, is now home again, and, of course, everything seems to be back to normal. The nanny. He just needs to talk to her. Get her side of the story. But it will be another interview gone wrong. Sexually explicit. You have been warned.
This short story describes Detective Arbuthnot's attempt to interview Aimee, the live-in caretaker for the children of Anna and Mark. The interaction with Aimee is odd and becomes odder. While the detective tries to maintain professional detachment, Aimee has something else in mind. This encounter – and much else – is also described in Being in Time, Bound in Space, the second book of The Tentacles of Chaos.
The story is graphic in nature. Adults only, please. All characters depicted in sexually explicit scenes are over 18 years old.
