Friday Fictioneers: A Dogged Pursuit

Good Saturday evening everyone! This is my final Friday Fictioneer post here. Next week I will making my first official writing post on my new writing blog with a Friday Fictioneer post! Thanks again to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for her continued leadership and, for this week, the photo prompt.

You may wish to acquaint yourself with two previous posts as a set of characters have emerged in my previous posts. One of them appears in this post. You do not have to do so as it is a stand-alone post without needing to be referenced to the previous ones.

Here are the previous posts:

A Dogged Pursuit

“Really? … How long ago?…. Just him you say?”

Giselle Noire hung up the phone and gave her temporary partner, Jacque Lemond, a raised left eyebrow.

“He’s here..”

“Hims?”

“Qui, yes, him…here…”

Suddenly she realized an explanation was needed. “I am talking about Francois Mercer, the prime suspect in the Moreau case. He disappeared five years ago…”

(Twenty minutes later)

The winded gendarme breathlessly explained the situation at the foot of the forbidden staircase.

“Is he armed with a gun?”

“Oui, yes, mademoiselle, He is armed with a PPK, a silver on….

She bounded up the stairs.

“Arreter!”

Shots rang out.

    1. Hi Janet!
      Yes, thought it was time to focus on writing and think a dedicated blog would be helpful. Thanks for the luck.
      As for Giselle, I hope so too! I have a feeling the ‘rest of the story’ will be told when a suitable photo shows up on Rochelle’s blog!
      Regards
      Jim

    1. Thanks Nan for your kind words.
      I think that eventually the cold weather will give way to spring and out comes the allergy meds!
      Regards
      Jim
