Blink and you’ll miss it (Friday Fictioneers)

November 17, 2022

As soon as she was out of sight of the road, she slipped the padded boot off and threw her crutch into the bushes. Her gait returned to normal. The disguise had done what she’d needed it to do. All they would remember now was a poor uncoordinated woman with a broken foot. Not someone capable of scaling a wall, snipping the alarm wire, popping the window latch, slipping inside and picking the lock on the wall safe. She fingered the jewelled necklace in her pocket and let out a happy sigh. Then skipped off down the road, humming softly.

    Sherlock may crack the case. But it sounds like that she will be long gone by then

  6. Disguised in plain sight. Clever story, well-told, Laurie. 🙂

  7. She is certainly an ingenious jewel thief. Does she sell it or keep the booty?
