The Favor Chpt. 6
The sidewalk traffic had practically doubled. It was lunch time in Los Angeles and everyone was either taking a lunch break at one of the many restaurants or just returning to one. People stepped in and out of the store doors to his left and the traffic on the street to his right was packed with cars, virtually blocking his view of the store windows across the street.
Why did the questions Ms. Audum ask annoy him so? But then again, he thought, why shouldn't they? He thought about this as he walked back to his condo, book in hand. It was, he concluded halfheartedly, because of the favor being owed to Phoenix. Yes, that was it. Phoenix, the rookie lawyer that has always won his trials against him... Miles clamped his jaw shut, clenching and unclenching his free hand. Well, that was the reason that he wasn't enjoying this favor.

Ms. Audum burst out laughing, her eyes rolled up to heaven. Miles couldn't help giving a tiny chuckle.
"Miles," she gasped, trying to catch her breath,"a case involving Labradors?"
"No, I'm..." He folded his arms across his chest, trying to think of a word to describe what he was doing for Phoenix. "I'm dog sitting." Miles muttered just loud enough for Ms. Audum to hear.
He prepared himself to be laughed at again, but instead, Ms. Audum asked curiously, "Who would you do that for?"
