55FFF - Chapter V

I'm attempting a twofer 55FFF this week--not only am I continuing this story, but I'm also writing something for Mike's new 55 Flash Fiction Friday blog. Until I get that written and posted, enjoy Chapter V...

Mona, the victim in Chapter V did have a name--take a look at Chapter IV again! (C:

Glad you liked the story--after writing this yesterday, I can honestly say I have no idea where this is going. I guess I'll have to see where the characters lead me...

Jim,
I'm enjoying this storyline. I still need to go back to read the back story.
Great 55.
Your other one is great too.

Hi Charles:

Glad you're enjoying the story line. We're still only 5 chapters into it, so 260 words--should be easy to catch up at this point (grin)...

Glad you enjoyed my other 55 on the 55FFF blog! Looking forward to more from you on that site, also!

Jim
