“I just can’t believe Mags called you Officer,” Vincent said in sham reverent tone. “I don’t know how she missed the nine -hundred and forty- two reminders that you’re a Captain now.”
“Well she damn well should remember,” he muttered. “Is anyone else remembering that she spilled iced -tea all over me at my coronation party?”
“She spilled it on your shoes,” Elena said. “Which were black.”
“Still,” Anth said, glancing around the room this time to make sure she wasn’t with in earshot. “I don’t know why we have to act like she’s a new member of the family when she can’t seem to go a single Sunday without spilling somebody’s breakfast on me. It can’t be an accident every time.”
“Maybe she wants to get your attention. Your humble, pleasantcharming personality is so charming,” Ava said quietly into her coffee mug.
Anth looked at Luc’s girlfriend. “Et tu, Brute?”
And then his dad leaned back in the booth, folded his arms, and glared at his oldest son. “So tell me again what you’re doing to close in on this Smiley character.”
“Oh my God, he’s like a dog with a bone!” Elena said, throwing her arms up in exasperation, before turning her attention back to her cell phone. “Also, is Nonna texting anyone else? I’ve been getting mucous every five minutes.”
“Yes,” everyone replied at once.
“She just sent me a Wikipedia link on phlegm,” Vincent grumbled.
To say that his grandmother had been upset to miss brunch because of a lingering head cold was an understatement. She’d been punishing them all with updates on her illness.
Anthony glanced at his watch, and mentally counted the minutes until he could relax with a beer and watch the Yankees game.
Of the three sacred things in his life, the New York Yankees had always been a very distant third to family and the Department.
Now he was seriously rethinking his priorities.
