“Did somebody say, ‘fuckin?’” The Kaiser asks and sidesteps into my office. Jed turns to him, shocked. “No! No one said that, Cole,” he stammers.
My eyes widen and I look questioningly at Jed. “Did you?” I ask sharply.
He shakes his head no. “Not this time,” he replies. “Did you?”
I glare at him. “No.”
The Kaiser smiles slightly. “I thought I heard someone say, ‘fuckin.’” He stares at me.
“Stop saying that! No one said that word,” I say. “Don’t say it again, Cole.”
He raises his hands slightly. “But I didn’t say it. It wasn’t me. I didn’t say it.” The Kaiser grins and shrugs. He runs back into the living room and the husband and I are briefly speechless.
“You think he just wanted to say it?” Jed asks.
I nod solemnly. “I’d say that’s a good fuckin’ guess.”
