The Casket Caper - Part ThreeThe foyer of the Birtwhistle Museum was cool and dark in contrast to the outside world, though no less hectic. In the line to buy tickets, a party of excitable teenage students jostled and showed each other fascinating things on electronic devices. Their shrieks of laughter echoed around the stone hall and up to the high decorated ceiling.The Casket Caper - Part Three6 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Amanda caught sight of Lafarge in the line ahead. His back was to her, though he bristled with irritation at the antics of the young people behind him.
Ahead, a sign declared that museum tickets were $16, or $10 for students. Amanda panicked momentarily and groped in the tiny front pocket of her rather insubstantial shorts. She was in luck – when she pulled out her hand it held her last, crumpled, $10 bill. This happy discovery had another implication: with a pang of guilt Amanda realised that she’d left Benny’s without paying. She would have to drop by on her way home and apologise profusely.

Um, so… I think I should start with the two I know next to nothing about first. So, Ali and that Suicune–
"Uh… hi? Pretty human girl? I think?"
I whirl at the familiar drawl, hastily hiding paper and pencil behind my back. It's not that I don't trust Taki, it's just that he's been gone long enough to make me feel uneasy in general. Given that he wasn't in his room, nor was he around the others when the deed was likely done, he just seems to be the least likely to have a coherent alibi, and most likely to have a very decent motive for killing Russ. "What do you want, Osaka?"
"I was just gonna say hi and stuff, but – how'd ya know my name? I don't think we've met, so…" He takes a step towards me, and of course I take one back.
"No, we've already met", I sniff, resisting the

I wonder, and look back on that moment with a frown present on my face. Her gentle caress left me behind to this cruel world and I long for her icy touch and the beauty of the [Red Snow] that she created once more... and then I realize: the one I see in my dreams were a mere taunt of the past.

Story one of the (possible) web series Beretta Stone
Thursday started out as normal for Lily. She got dressed, ate breakfast, tried not to start a fight with her father and, as usual, the latter failed. Frankly, she couldn't bite her tongue anymore. Especially when he kept prodding her.
"So, how do you like Tom?" Nick Henson asked over his bowl of cheerios. He had a thick build and a strong jaw. His Scandinavian blonde hair and blue eyes made it obvious where she got her own features.
Lily arched an eyebrow at him. "He can box."
Her father nodded. "He seemed nice. Good head on his shoulders, military background...yes, he seemed very nice."

Understandably, Fiore decided to skip school for the rest of the week. She faked illness to her parents, but of course when Saturday morning came she had to magically get better. Her mother was threatening a doctor visit, well, not threatening…but the last thing Fiore wanted to deal with was going to the doctor and having him tell her parents she was perfectly healthy. Then they’d needle into what was REALLY wrong with her and she didn’t want to share her recent find or the fact that she got attacked.
She was starting to wonder if she should have just kept the original find of Jayda’s body to herself even. Perhaps it would have made a difference. Or perhaps not, but for now on she should probably stop meddling…
She gathered up the things she found of Jayda’s and took them into her backyard and set them on fire.
It’s all in the past now. She thought to herself as she mixed the ashes around in the fire pit. She hadn’t burned th
