The Trophy Cabinet (100 words)
Lucy ‘s anxious fingers missed the comfort of her broach as she crept into the darkened study. Like a theatre spotlight, her flashlight’s beam swept the panelled walls before alighting on a small, wooden shelving unit.
Her heart quickened as she approached; Ralph’s toy car, Dr Wren’s mah-jong pieces – all trophies from Morton’s victims!
A soft click behind her bathed the room in light.
“Hello Lucy,” said Morton. “Pity you discovered my secret, I’ll miss you. “
“Oh well,” he added nonchalantly, “I’ll have this to remember you by.”
In the palm of his outstretched hand was Lucy’s missing broach.
