Just when you thought it was safe to come out from the duvet....

All is not well at Sock Towers... there have been some very sinister developments...

On the day when we were all happily fantasizing about Matthew Wilson's bookywook the postman fought his way through the snowdrifts to Socktowers with an innocuous looking parcel addressed to Miss Arabella Sock.

"How delightful" thought the Sock  "this must surely be a delivery of deliciously expensive chocolates sent by the Bedsock to make up for leaving her snowed in and home alone for a week."  The Sock ripped open the padded envelope only to reveal, horror of horrors, an anonymous note dripping with malice ...



Worse was to come.  The Sock bravely but recklessly pulled out the bulky contents of the envelope and then Aaargh!!!!




Who could have done such a thing?

The Sock has her suspicions and believes it could be her No. 1 Fan gone bad...

The evidence:

The book was obviously bought at a 99p shop or more likely stolen from a local library as no-one, not even a mad person, would pay full price for it.

The book is in pristine condition, none of the pages have been turned implying this person couldn't bear to read it either.

The padded envelope was recycled implying someone too lazy to buy a new one.  After carefully peeling off the selotaped on address label the Sock found one word underneath!!  The Sock now believes she has the evidence she needs to have this maniac locked away from society and make us all safer.

And what to do with the book?  The Sock intends to pass it on to someone else who in turn will pass it on to someone else and we shall see just how many hands it can pass through before it finds someone who could possibly want it.

Shock horror! Have you dusted for finger prints? Surely this constitutes a serious crime and maybe even the creation of a WASBO (Walkden Anti Social Behaviour Order)?

So are you going to tell us who the stalker is?

I'm giving the culprit chance to fess-up before taking retaliatory action...

VP said...

I'm confused - do you have the evidence to lock up the sender of the book, or the book's author?

Or perhaps both.

How exciting! Are you going to take Christine under the duvet? If so, with or without Mathew?

Oh dear Ms B, you've put me off my lunch with that thought.

Teza said...

Surely a threesome would agrner you unwanted attention, you could send Matthew my way - no gardener is too old to learn a few new tricks!

The Black Fingernail said...

Not me. I'd have underpaid on the postage too!

Christine is said to be like Marmite - The very thought of either under my duvet makes me want to vom.

Wow, no one deserves that sort of treatment - this could possibly scar you for life!

Actually great book,

Wonderful to use on cold days to light the fire.

Arabella Sock said...

Aha! As my Great Uncle CSI Grissock always said "The perp always returns to the crime scene!". This is particularly true in the case of serial-killers which is a worry as one of you must be the culprit!!!!

Ms B. the image of what you have suggested is just too dreadful to contemplate and only a warped mind would have come up with it.

Teza - you can't have Matthew Wilson but we could send you Christine who is known for doing impressions of aeroplanes and choochoo trains. I'm sure you could learn a few tricks from her! LOL!
