“What have we got here, sergeant?”
“Burnt out car, boss. Found earlier today by some chap walking his dog. Uniform are taking a statement. Forensics have come up with some fingerprints. They match those of Goldilocks. Her that’s thought to have killed Cock Robin and the millionaire playboy, Humpty Dumpty. And I’ve just heard there’s been a call to the local station. Somebody matching her description was seen breaking into a nearby cottage owned by three bears. I’ve got armed police surrounding the place as we speak.”
“Right, let’s go and remember sergeant, no heroics, she’s a dangerous lady.”
A 100-word story for Friday Fictioneers.
