The Joker Cop. Chapter-3

That evening Charley Master got back in his village at five and went straight to a second rate village bar.

Inside the bar room he set in for a drink among a bunch of illiterate village flocks,his usual 'glass mates', and called for whisky.

The drink was served, and after a few glasses,Charley Master began to talk big things about himself to his glass mates- That he was the sweet heart of the college girls, that he was a man loaded with courage, that his wife was terribly scared of him, and so on. All lies and gas! But the illiterate village flock listened intently wondering-'Wow! What a super man!'

Charley Master continued in the bar for an hour more amusing every one around.Now it was time for him to go home.He then drew the last swallow of whisky from his glass,and getting to his feet said grinning to everyone around,"Well friends,we'll meet again tomorrow." Then he paced near the counter, payed the bill,and and let himself out of the bar.

He paused for a moment at the bar gate to light a cigarette, and then made his way along the country road to his house quarter of a mile away.

But after going half the way,Charley Master suddenly remembered something with a chill that he had clean forgotten all day long.That morning his wife Sefy had reminded him for the third time to bring her a new bra by that evening,But after reaching the police station, everything about the bra had gone out of his brain, and now standing by the road side he began to sweat and shiver over the problem.

As per the nature of Sheffy, if she finds that he had returned home empty handed,she would most likely jump upon him like an angry chimp. There was no doubt about it.So something had to be done very fast.There ware no cloth shops in the village,and moreover,there was no time to go back to town at that hour to buy a bra.

Now standing there all alone,Charley Master tried to figure out the situation and find a way to solve this head ache.He stood scratching his head for minutes and at last stumbled upon something that seemed very practical and funny.
Leaving the road, Charley Master turned into a side road on his left and hurried on.Half an hour later, he turned into the front yard of a brick built house, and walking near the house, he climbed a flight of wooded steps that led up to the porch and knocked on the door panel.

There was a brief silence, and then the door clicked open and a women appeared in the doorway.Though middle aged, she was indeed beautiful with a set of black, restless eyes.

On seeing Charley Master, her eyes lit up and a flirtatious smile appeared on her face.

" Hallo, Charley!" She said jovially, "Nice to see you again.Please come in"

That was Cathy, who was known in the village as 'Captian Cathy', Charley Master's old girl friend.

She ushered him into the sitting room, and at once Charley Master sat down heavily into a sofa.Cathy settled down beside him.

"Are things going well enough Charley?" She asked smiling, Her eyes probing him.

"No, I've got into a terrible problem." Charley Master said with a note of urgency in his voice," I need your help"

"Oh!,What's your problem?Tell me about it" Cathy said with with an expression flirtatious surprise and leaned close to him, Is your wife going to chop off your balls?"
But for Charley Master,it was not the time to flirt with her,.

"It's something serious Cathy" He said looking into her eyes.Her whole attitude seemed very friendly, and encouraging, and then, without any hesitation,Charley Master gave her a quick run-down on his ' bra problem. '

The whole thing was a big joke for Cathy.

"Good grief!" She exclaimed laughing aloud and clapped him on the shoulder.

"Sheffy is a real monster." She said,"If you go home without her bra,She'll have your balls. But any way, tell me about my job in this nuisance."

"I want a bra that will fit Sheffy." Charley Master said,"And in return I"ii bring you two new bras as a reward."

"Great!" Cathy exclaimed,"How could I refuse Such a wonderful offer?Anyway, you are lucky that I"ve got a new bra that'll fit your wife and I'll give you that.But you should keep your promise."

"Don't have any doubts about it Cathy" Charley Master said excitedly,'By tomorrow evening two new bras will be here for you."

Satisfied,Cathy got to her feet and crossed into her bed room, closing the door behind her.

But there was another problem. About one week back,there had been a spat between the two over some trifles and since then Cathy had been waiting for a chance to settle the score.Now it was her wonderful opportunity and she decided to make it as funny festival.

End of chapter three.Chapter four will be up within a couple of days.
