Eric wins!

Chapter 1

“ Zounds!” was the first thing out of Charlie’s mouth that morning. For you see, if Agnes hadn’t flaunted the Taupe diamond all the way to Monkey’s Eyebrow, AZ, Charlie would still have his dignity and maybe even a fiancé. He was still fuming as he fastened his suspenders and by the time he had buttoned his smoking jacket, he was determined. It was Saturday, mid September, and the mist that still hung around the street lights made the general store across the street seem cloaked in mystery. Charlie felt reckless. And not a little vengeful. Agnes would be made to give back the diamond and publicly denounce this damaging story of their engagement. Agnes had always been a reasonable person. Charlie was confident he would have made sure of that before asking her to make Julia jealous. It was all so alarming and embarrassing. Charlie straightened his tie and exited his apartment building into the mist.

a) Mortimer, proprietor of "Fix it or Forget it," would know what to do. After all, he was Agnes' brother.

b) Charlie was going to find Julia. She had never followed through on a threat to shoot him yet . . .

c) Monkey's Eyebrow was only a day's journey away, and by gum Agnes couldn't hide there forever!

I'll vote "a" to break the tie. Plus, I like the name Mortimer.

I also vote A. Fix it Or Forget It sounds important.

Mike said...

B! just to make it a little closer.

Um, C, but I know that's not helpful.
