Colonel, Miss Scarlet, you know each other, the young lady told me so. However, please beg my pardon, neither of you seems like the company the other would usually keep. So what is the connection? Obvious! Doctor Black. But how?
Colonel, you knew Black in Africa, were his commanding officer. Battles make brothers, do they not? And what would a brother not tell his brother? Nothing! So what did Black tell you? Was it the very same thing that the Reverend saw you arguing about? I think it was.
And the ring Mrs White accidentally knocked from Miss Scarlet’s bed, was it truly a gift for the Doctor? No! Miss Scarlet, you told me you grew up an orphan, that was only half true. Your parents were absent, yes, but not because they were dead. That ring is your birth right, you are Doctor Black’s daughter!
To be continued…
You are keeping us in suspense for another day!! We are loving this. It does not seem likely miss scarlet would kill her dad. But why might the colonal have? They were arguing..but what about? Was scarlets mum tbe colonals wife? That could have made him angry. But then scarlett has not been telling the truth. She said she was outside yet her shoes were dry. How long had she known dr black was her dad? She did not seem too upset at his death. So perhaps she cannot be ruled out? You have us stumped for tbe moment. What a great way to reach 150.
