Vincent has parked his car several houses down, across the street. He lurked in the neighborhood for over two weeks watching the Mendola residence. In a short period a pattern had perked up. Monday, Danny attended to supervising the restocking of a strip club he operated. He would spend the entire day there, though it was closed on Mondays. Tuesday through Friday evening Danny would be a work with the club. Mrs. Mendola would divide her time with shopping, going with her friends to get coffee or wine, and yoga. Yoga was interesting, it was a one on one session in her backyard, with a younger muscular male, and seemed to usually end like a porno. The daughter was at school, so at least corruption wasn't happening. Either Tuesday or Wednesday nights there were guests, often, they would stay late, and a man would stay near the front door during these visits. Friday, Mr. and Mrs. Mendola seemed to enjoy a date night, the daughter would spend time at a friend's house, he didn't get to see that location. Saturday, Danny would go to a cabin, which Vincent was unsure if it was rented or owned. Danny would then enjoy the company of a young harlot, one who drove a car she obviously didn't buy herself, and considering he knew she worked at the strip club for Danny, he doubted her parents had bought it. Sunday, the Mendola's would all attend Mass at a Catholic church not far from the neighborhood. They would dress up, nice clothes, and travel as a family. They stayed for the full service, cleansed, and would then repeat the week.
