That's a secret, my dear

Just a little bit of fluff ... Archie/Lili (hint of Archie/Cramer)
Warnings: none
Disclaimer: I just borrowed a few characters from Rex Stout. I promise that no harm has been done and all people were safely returned ...

……I descended the stairs from Cramer's office and headed for the exit door leading to West 28th Street. My pleasant thoughts about Fritz's Coq au Vin were harshly interrupted by a light tap on my shoulder. I turned around to give the intruder a piece of my mind and ended up facing one of the most beautiful faces in New York. Lili Rowen.
……I smiled. "I bid you good evening. Did they arrest you as well?"
……She wrinkled her nose at me. "Of course not. You're the only criminal in here."
……I laughed. "That is one very brave exclamation, considering we're in a police station and the rooms over there are full of jailbirds."
……She shrugged. "A girl can't help but hope."
……I came closer and kissed her forehead. "That's right. Why are you here then?"
……Her face suddenly gained slight shade of red. "Nothing important, Escamillo."
……"What is it, Lili?"
……She sighed and came a few steps closer. "You know my friend Clara?"
……I nodded. She was talking about Clara Hoppentof who, beside being an heiress of five million dollars worth winery and a former model, makes a very pleasant company. I have yet to find out about her skills as a dancer, but her figure says it's very promising that she dances at least as well as Lucy Valdon.
……Lili continued: "It's apparent she hasn't made very good friends with local speed limits. I'm here to bail her out."
……"Be careful. Charlie Donovan's on the watch. He's that kind of person who takes an uncomfortable situation and makes it even worse. Always difficult to deal with. It might help to turn on some of your charms."
……The kiss she then gave me came as a bolt of lightning from the open sky. It didn't last long, but it was enough to leave me breathless for a second. I took a step back and gave her one of my disarming smiles. "You should've left that for Charlie, dear."
……She narrowed her eyes at me. "That's very odd, Archie, if I may say."
……"What is?"
……"How come you taste after cigars? I thought you didn't smoke."
……I bit my lip and bent down to whisper in her ear: "That's a secret, my dear."
……It wasn't until I was opening the exit door when I heard her quiet exclamation of recognition. "Oh, Escamillo."
