Previously: “That’s a given,” Anna replied, “Specifics?”
“You will, one at a time, be sent out to the boondocks to visit the dive bars you find—and just watch the patrons. After a while you’ll see people who really don’t belong in that kind of bar—those are the ones you should chat-up—because they simply don’t fit-in.”
“Just like we don’t fit-in,” Louisa added, “And too—we may be approached as well.”
“This could be fun,” Anna concluded.
To say these two young women were smart—would be an understatement, and Pettersen knew to watch his own back.
On the other hand—he was paying them a small, but significant fortune.
“A-HA!” Louise exclaimed, “Before you get any idea that you can divide us by getting romantically involved with the other—forget about it—it’s just not going to happen. You’re old enough to be our grandfather!”

“Ah—but it is ‘credible,’ as I am not alone,” Neil Pettersen wickedly smiled, “I too—am a twin. Bill? Come in here and meet our new friends.”
“Come in here and meet our new friends.”
“Hello girls,” William Pettersen presented himself, “I will follow one of you in your quest, and Neil will follow the other. Neither of us will interfere with your operation—unless one or both you two mess up.”
