Welcome back to SSS in the merry month of May, my friends. Hope is the sun is shining on all of you. Know the comments you’ve left have cheered me and given lots of thoughts to future writing.
This week, we meet the twisted mind of Clifford Lansdale, the watcher infatuated with Emily Kendrick. She and Patrick Corwin are married now and here’s what happens next.
Juiced on black coffee, obsessed with his Goddess and his plan, he grabbed keys to the restored dune buggy he treasured and headed out for a little ride. Gunning the motor, the buggy sailed over the dunes onto the flat hard packed sand course set straight ahead for, oh my, if it isn’t his lawyer dear Patrick Corwin jogging alone and where oh where is she? Ah yes, far up the beach, the lonely quiet beach with no one around and only the fierce wind making all that racket.
Just a tap to send him sprawling, one tiny tap, Clifford Lansdale geared up high, pedal to the floor and headed straight for the target. A slam in the middle of his back sent him flying backwards onto the hood and the lawyer slid almost face to face with the windshield, his eyes already unfocused. Breathing heavily, he climbed out of the buggy using forgotten strength, driven by an adrenalin rush, he tugged at the bloodied body until it was thrown clear landing where waves pooled over the remains of the clever lawyer, Patrick Corwin as he swayed gently with each ebb and flow of the sea.
