A quick glance at the clock on the far wall confirmed the time as 5:02 AM TST. “Sorry, Sarge,” Darth replied as he found a seat. “Stumbled onto a new site last night.” “And,” Druge prompted under a raised red unibrow. “And I hit paydirt,” Darth confirmed. “Social media site for Realtors.” Deep, wet chortles (49 comments)
