“As she watched, Miss Tonks drew a pistol,” – M.C. Beaton’s Colonel Sandhurst to the Rescue

And here are the submissions for this week:

Michele Jones from Out of the Shadows

Rhen Laird from Cobbled Contemplations

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Kristian from Tales from the mind of Kristian

And here’s my submission for the week:

With a weary sigh George looked down the laneway, he’d known this was a big mistake from the outset.  You shouldn’t give jobs to sweet spinsters who’d never faced anything tougher than a garden spider in their entire lives but the decision hadn’t been his, his superior had been insistent that Miss Tonks take this task and proved her worth. 

Shuffling his feet, George scowled, assassinations were always difficult and this target was alternatively loved and despised making it even more trying.  For an instance George considered intervening as Miss Tonks drew a pistol but then he realized the woman who had set this all in motion was watching with a pleased smile.

Her smile faded quickly though as Miss Tonks pivoted with an unbelievable speed for a seventy year old and with stony features pointed the gun at the other woman.

“Hasta la vista, baby,” Miss Tonks stated dryly.

And the words:

“She was murdered,” Rabbit says. – Kate Racculia’s Bellweather Rhapsody

And here are the submissions for this week:

Michele Jones from Out of the Shadows

Cheryl from The Bag Lady

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Kristian from Tales from the mind of Kristian

Christine from Stine Writing

And here’s my submission for the week:

“She was murdered,” Rabbit declared, even as the other settled nearby.

“Here?”  But she knew this part of the woods like the back of her paw.” Owl hooted.

“Then they knew it better,” Rabbit declared his tone darkly droll.

Before Owl could reply he erupted from the undergrowth furiously mad.
