DEATH ON THE ROCKS

by John Yeo

How is the signal today?” Asked George, “I have ordered several items on-line.”
“The monthly post boat has been, but there was no sign of anything,” replied his wife the Professor.
Lorraine was very learned, she was responsible for many on-line seminars
“We will take the launch into town and check up with the post office,” said George. “Darling is it safe to leave the house unguarded? I know we are isolated here, but you never know.”
“Don’t be so silly George, there are only rocks and fish on all four sides of the house.”
” I have heard some nasty stories of pirates invading these isolated islands!”
On their return after visiting the mainland there was a serious incident.
Next day the headlines on the mainland newspapers screamed…….

FOUR DEAD IN AN ATTEMPTED ARMED ROBBERY ON AN ISOLATED ISLAND.
CRAZED HISTORY PROFESSOR GUNS DOWN FOUR.
The Professor and her husband are helping police with their enquiries having had medical treatment for shock.

    • Thanks Millie ~ Yes they do
      have their veneer of many aspects of social mores ~ I may develop them elsewhere ~ Nice to hear from you again πŸ™‚

      • Yes, I’m still here, but I don’t do some of the ff challenges at the moment, as I’m trying to write my 3rd book. I just do FFfAW every week now. πŸ™‚
