Six Sentence Sunday, Mar. 20

Here's something from the WIP, By Hook or By Crook. To recap, Ivy, the heroine, is determined to save her younger sister, Daisy, from marrying the wrong guy. Her father pairs her with a sexy private detective, Joe Dunham, to find the runaway couple and prevent the marriage. Daisy's fiance has incurred the wrath of a notorious gangster along the way, so the entire group is in hiding as Ivy continues to try to make Daisy see reason. This scene takes place when Joe learns that not only has Daisy finally succeeded in secretly wedding her inappropriate beau, but that they have also been spotted by the gangsters that are trying to kill them. Daisy calls Joe to ask for help:

Joe rubbed the bridge of his nose, closing his eyes for a moment. "I have to tell you, I don't really see the point of bailing you out of this mess. When Ivy finds out you've married him, she's going to kill you herself."
"I was sort of hoping you'd talk her out of that," Daisy admitted.
"Yeah, 'cause of course Ivy is putty in my hands." Had anyone in the Smithson family not been put on earth expressly to make his life a living hell?
