We waited until there was another lull in his business, pretending to be interested in purses hanging on the stall next door. Okay, well since I bought one, it wasn’t really pretending.
I got his attention by standing in front of him until he gave up pretending not to notice me. “I am trying to find her and if you have any information you can give it to me. I won’t tell anyone.”
