…in an Exciting Adventure with the Police – Part 02

In phoning 999 I’d teamed up with the Police to battle against the forces of darkness, those which emerge beyond the witching hour, but from our hero’s arrival at the scene of the crime time was already running out to solve the mystery of the woman in the sunken garden before the sun came up.

…in an Exciting Adventure with the Police – Part 01

I am like a one-man Neighbourhood Watch. It didn’t pass our attention when someone mysteriously spray-painted one of our hedgehogs with a big cross on its back and I eventually became aware of the patterns of a certain twenty-something blonde neighbour whose hours seemed to be so in keeping with mine that I naturally deduced that she could hardly be a normal functioning member of society; although this was before I started to really pay attention to her activities and I got a right eyeful, because it turns out that she isn’t shy, and what with all the costume changes and the hours spent in front of her full-length mirror in various states of undress that I began to wonder if she was a right Belle de Jour.
