Hey, you surprised me - I wasn't expecting a chapter until the weekend!


SPOILERS






Well, that was troubling.  It's unusual - and disturbing - to see such animus between a prosecutor and a victim.   Am I connecting the dots correctly, Louise?   Are we seeing that Ellery was correct when he said a few chapters back that there might be a "misguided" Republican investigator goading Laura on just to keep her on the hook and entertain himself?   >:(  And while I suppose Blue and Langtree could stir up bad publicity and bring Ellery and Colson's relationship to the attention of others in the state - I don't understand his remark aobut not prosecuting unrelated indecency cases.  Ellery and Colson are in Greenlea County - outside of Langtree's jurisdiction, he couldn't prosecute them anyway.  (Although Laura wouldn't realize that).   I hope the plea offer works out - I wouldn't like to see Pam put through a trial. 

In any event, Chief Cantrell is indeed going to be fit to be tied.  Obviously, the folks up in Yavapai County don't know Ellery at all. 

Thanks!

it appears someone was just letting Laura believe that somehow she could get some "justice" by spilling her guts about the family skeletons in the closet.  Which turns out to make for good drama!  Amazing what my characters do when I wasn't looking.

But when Chief Cantrell gets ahold of this information he won"t be happy, and that's for certain.

Ha ha!  Indeed!   ;)

I know it's not good for his blood pressure, but the evil part of me is looking forward to this.  When his fury is properly directed, kick-ass Ellery can be a beautiful thing! LOL!

Heheheh well as long as you didn't think I planned this.  I just can't plan things this devious - the characters do it all by themselves...!

Indeed!

That Ellery, he's a caution.

“Okay, what do I do?” he thought to himself. “Grab em an pin em down or look pretty an wait for em ta finish sulkin?”

 :laugh: at the 'look pretty' thought. Shouldn't be too difficult Ellery.

I'm glad they got a few things out in the open. And, in spite of all Colson's fears, I loved how easy that 'the day we got married' rolled off his tongue.

thanks for the update Louise!
