Drabble: Murderer Mystery

“Who was it? That annoying butler? The desperate, has-been actress? Or the lecherous vicar?”

I walked into the lounge and looked around the circle at them, ticking them off in my head. “The kindly grandmother.”

“That’s right,” Inspector Truman said. “We’re investigating the murder of Mrs Jennings.”

I nodded with concern while my mind tried to process it all. I couldn’t remember killing her, but it wouldn’t be the first time.

“What do you think, Smitty?” the inspector asked me.

I did my best to look confused, as always. “I’ve no idea, Truman.”

“It’s elementary, my dear Smitty.”
