For the Final Time...
A Miss Marple Murder Mystery
Featuring, in no order at all because there's only one thing
In the depths of Atlantis a window was leaking. Vassal sighed and put some wellies on. Things had fallen into disrepair and the master didn't seem that bothered. Vassal stalked off to his room and tried, like he did everynight, to build himself a woman. So far he'd got as far as Dale Winton but he was having trouble eradicating the mincing. He sighed and told himself it would have to do.
Upstairs, in a slightly more plush and jeweled part of Atlantis a woman too was being tampered with. And meanwhile somewhere else again, joranj was hard at work.
"Okay, okay..." he muttered to himself, all stubble and rolled up shirt sleeves. "One more turn should do and then another spring..." He reached into a large box and pull out an "...onion, to calm my nerves."
joranj had been under a lot of stress recently and he'd progressed from radishes to spring onions. He lit one and stood back. He admired his creation before taking out a key and sticking it into it's back. He turned it half a dozen times.
"Marple?" he muttered, barely daring to utter the name. "Darling, can you hear me?"
There was a whir, a clink and a boing.
"If you can hear me, then please say something," said joranj imploringly.
"Damn, I knew the cuckoo clock was a mistake," cursed joranj. With a sigh he picked up his screwdriver again.
Meanwhile, in Taiwan
"ARGGH! It's monsterous!" screamed a woman.
"We must flee!" cried a man on a bicycle.
"What's happening," asked a blindman.
"Can't you see?! It's obvious!"
"Obvious? It's not a giant mutant space dog is it?"
"ARGGHH! The giant mutant space dog got me with his laser guided nasal mucus!"
"So was I right or not?"
Well he was partially right. It was a giant mutant dog but it didn't come from space. It didn't even come from Ikea, or any catalogue shop for that matter. No this dog was Hefe and sitting on a throne on the dogs back was Melvin, one time lackey of the late, great Timepie. The people of Taiwan could hear him cackling even above the screams.
"BWAHAHAHA! NOW WITH MARPLE GONE AND THE TCP DISBANDED THERE IS NO ONE WHO CAN STOP ME! NO ONE!! Except maybe a giant space hose as that might scare Hefe but still! NO ONE!"
And he started his world domination attempt by making shoddy electronics.
