I Solemnly Swear . . .

This week’s picture is so me, as my website name suggests I am a fan of the Harry Potter books, and movies. https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/author/sadje19/

A coffee shop in the middle of nowhere – her napkin was a clue to her husband’s murder. I solemnly swear I am up to no good. Who was it? She wasn’t sure, but the fact she was here, after an invitation to coffee, someone was taunting her.

Step for step, she was left in no doubt – the person involved was close to them.

Where to go from here? A cinema, now closed, and the first time she watched The Philosophers’ Stone. They sat in the front row, popcorn, a hot dog, and they spent the whole evening holding hands. It was when she decided their love was worth taking a risk on.

It was her fault he was in the car with her, and it was this person’s fault her husband was killed. It was meant to warn her away from her investigation. Yet it was with the car crash, which made her go on. Clues leading her to Bill Morrison, to Craig, and a drugs conspiracy nobody could even have guessed at.

Now, he was on the run, still wanting to write the ending to her story. She didn’t know why, but he didn’t need to show his face. It was clear who paid for the hit, and clear who it was.

The same person, meeting Joe for the first time, asking him if he wanted a free meal. All he had to do, to settle what he owed, was to deliver a package. She found out later, it went missing, only to increase his debt into drugs.

Outside, the napkin in her hands, she waited . . .

  1. As far as Harry Potter goes, I’m so naive that I didn’t even realize that Ravenclaw was a reference to that series of books. I’ve never felt compelled to delve into that fantasy world. Maybe I’m saving it for a special time. I wonder how long it would take me to read them all, back to back?

    1. My daughter was about the right age when the books were first released, so I was interested in the books because I read them to her. Ravenclaw is one of the houses, it is the one where reading/cleverness is one of their qualities.

  2. Intriguing story plot line.

    My daughter, who teaches grade 5, asked me a number of years ago if I wanted to contribute books to her class library. I asked her what kind of books her students read. She said they seemed to be interested in Harry Potter books. Rowling had published three at the time and I purchased them in a hardcover book set. I read them before I handed them over to her, and I was hooked. I was the first in line for all the future editions to the series.
