Sales Pitch

Everybody has those moments in life when they need a helping hand …a bit of a boost. If it happens to be you auit of a boost up. If it should happen to be you a helping hand...nd you come looking for me, I gotta let you know I have a…unique skill set and I’m probably not the guy you need.

Yeah, I am a private investigator and yeah I usually don’t have enough work to pay my bills, but let me break it down for you. If your partner swindled you out of your half of the invention that will forever change humanity …I’m not your guy. If you’re a homebody who has learned the love of your life is not as committed to a monogamous relationship as you and you need dirt on them…n dirt on them…nope,ish  sent you packing, if nobody else believes a word you say and if nothing else seems to make not my gig. If however, you are vexed, bedeviled or beleaguered by a being normally thought to be mythical, imaginary or non-existent…then I can help you.

My name is Telemicus Maximiliano Wu and I’m a paranormal PI. Don’t worry if you Google’d me and got no hits. Don’t worry if I don’t offer you any verifiable references. Don’t worry if you have no idea how I have the chutzpah to claim to be a paranormal private eye. None of that really matters, dude.

What does matter is that if everyone else has sent you packing, if nobody else believes a word you say and if nothing else seems to make any sense…then I can help you. Now have a seat, a coffee, a Danish and let’s discuss your case.


This story was written for the weekly Thursday Threads flash fiction writing challenge phrase prompt: Then I can help you.
