My Interview with WPASO Candy Begins
Before my mind had the chance to fully interpret my last statement, Ms. Candy responded with,
“Inspector Prouff, I must warn you that anything you say or think may be recorded and later and used to support any case brought against you.”
“What?!!” I said incredulously.
At that WPASO Candy scribbled on her forearm with the sharp stylus she had. I looked at straight into her eyes and said,
“You’re joking, right?”
She scribbled again and after I said ‘Oh come on’ and then ‘Can we start again?’, both of which were instantly followed by more scribbling, I decided to shut up.
WPASO Candy fixed me now with what was probably the ‘stare’ described in detail in the ‘how to intimidate a suspect’ manual she had doubtless been issued with at PASO training school. She then proceeded to ask the same questions she had asked me earlier that day on the aircast, religiously scribbling be down my answers with her stylus on her forearm. After she got to the bit about whether or not I received an ion battery from a man in the hovercar park and I’d responded ‘yes’ as I had done earlier she added,
“Did you not think it strange that a man should just walk up to you and give you an ion battery?”
I thought for a moment and then answered,
“Not really, at the time. But, I must admit now on reflection, no one has ever given me an ion battery before, so I guess it is a bit strange.”
“So,” said Ms. Candy, now in full WPASO mode,
“You thought it was odd but you still took it. And not only that, but you took it from a man who is a criminal,” she ended incredulously.
“Yes, true. But how was I supposed to know he was a criminal? He wasn’t wearing a sign!” I responded indignantly. “I can assure you there was no criminal intent on my part.”
