42 Words #35

Welcome all,

Another week and another 42 word challenge and I’m pleased to state that we have themes picked for the next few weeks and this week Sadje has done the honour of selecting 35, which might give us all pause for thought.

Before I unveil that interesting theme, let us first bit our lips and hold our breathe and see what dark alleyways we ventured with Sara from Relax It’s All Write’s choice of 34.

Ramya from My Musings

Rugby43 from The Bag Lady

Sara from Relax It’s All Write

Dave from MMA Storytime

Sadje from Keep It Alive

Chelsea from A Wife, My Verse

Sadje nomination of 35 is going to lead us down a rabbit hole and into a wild balloon ride, so grab hold and hang on tight for nothing is as it seems this side of the looking glass for we’re going with the theme of …

TRICKERY.

It sounds easy doesn’t it?  A bit of deception, a ruse, a slight of hand?  But I suspect that it comes with its own minefield of obstacles to avoid for when we first practice to deceive …

So, its up to you folks, trick me, treat me but remember the overarching directive – 42 words, this your can’t breach.

Now as you may have gathered from the intro my prayers were answered and I had three numbers nominated.  Sadje and 35, Sara with 9 and Chelsea with 12.  A trifecta but I bet we all noticed that is was the woman who answered the call.

So gentlemen its time for you to put up your dukes and give me three numbers.  I know you can do it, the grids just below.

GONE 2 GONE GONE GONE 6 GONE
GONE 9 GONE GONE 12 GONE GONE
15 16 GONE GONE 19 20 GONE
GONE GONE GONE 25 GONE GONE GONE
29 30 31 GONE GONE GONE GONE
36 GONE 38 39 GONE GONE GONE

Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:

Know the criminal and you’ll know the crime.

I don’t understand how it could have been her Sir; she spent all evening at the ball.

I saw her Sergeant; she smiled as she stabbed the Duke in the chest.

But, how, her alibi is watertight.

Trickery Sergeant, she’s a twin.

PS Don’t forget to pingback.
