Witch Is How : A little of what you fancy does you good…
Jill Maxwell wins big! So why is she so unhappy? And who is the one-legged murderer?
…but lots of custard creams is even better.
“What are you watching?” I had bad vibes even before I reached the desk.
On-screen, there was an image of me on the stage at TenPinCon, perched on a chair above the water tank.
“I don’t want to watch.”
On screen, the last of the tenpins was knocked over, and the chair threw me forward into the water.
“Turn it off!”
He ignored me and instead rewound the footage, and this time, played it in slow motion.
“Is that your grandmother standing in front of the tank?”
“Yes, she was the one who ‘volunteered’ me for the ducking stool.”
“You must have done something to upset her. What did you do?”
“Nothing. Much. That water was freezing.”
He rewound the footage and played it again. “Too funny.”
“That’s enough.” I snatched the mouse and closed down the browser. “I don’t want to hear another word about it.”
“Fair enough.” He jumped off the sofa. “I can see you’re upset.”
“Do you promise not to mention it again?”
“You have my word.” He disappeared under the sofa, but quickly reappeared.
Wearing tap shoes!
“That’s not funny!”
“What do you think?” He tapped his way across the room. “Fred Astaire, eat your heart out.”
Thankfully, the tap dancing seemed to wear Winky out, and twenty minutes later, he was fast asleep under the sofa. Maybe now, I could finally forget about the tap dancing and the soaking.
My phone rang; it was Kathy.
“Have you dried off yet, Jill?”
“Did you call for anything in particular?”
“Not really. I just wanted to say how impressed Pete and I were at the way you threw yourself into TenPinCon. You’re usually such a misery guts when you go anywhere.”
“You know what I mean. You aren’t normally one to volunteer for stuff. I still can’t believe you kept the tap-dancing quiet. I was saying to Pete that I should get you to give me lessons. It’d be a great way to get fit.”
“I really am busy this morning, Kathy.”
“Sorry, I just thought you’d like to know that the kids had a wonderful time on Saturday.”
“Yeah, it seemed like it.”
“Lizzie wants to take up tap dancing too.”
“I suppose Mikey wants to as well?”
