Hi Able! Roxie here with an update on the Melanie Robertson-King assignment. So this morning, I tailed the world-famous author, from her hotel to the jaja restaurant in theHôtel Le Concorde Quebec.
My patience was rewarded. As I rounded the corner onto Wilfred-Laurier Avenue, I spotted her heading to a seat near the window. And what luck! She took the one looking outside. I crept around, and hid behind the planters and set up.
Well, just as I was focusing in on my subject, the worst possible thing happened.
I raised my camera to get a snapshot of my quarry, and a burly, security guard grabbed me by the arm. Luckily, I managed to get a photo, albeit on a bit of an angle, and upload it to the cloud before he had the nerve to confiscate my camera.
Roxie, Roxie, Roxie. How many times do I have to remind you? You can’t get caught when you’re on assignment.
I know, Able. I’m sorry. But I got the job done. You can’t fault me for that.
No, you’re right.
And the best thing is, the police weren’t involved. The security guy took pity on me and didn’t call. Told me, too, if I behave myself these next few days, after he’s had a chance to look at the pictures on my SD card and eliminate them, I’ll get my camera back! Wheeeee!
Focus, girl. Focus. The assignment isn’t over.
Aw, I was hoping to get a chance to poke around on my own without chasing anyone.
You do this one last thing, and you’ll get your well-deserved break.
See if you can find out where Melanie is going next and when so we can plan.
You got it, boss. Roxie Rebel won’t let you down.
