Dead Sentences



Someone had murdered the paragraph. Its sentences lay disordered and senseless, nothing but meaningless strings of words and cold, lifeless punctuation.

The question on my mind -- on everyone's -- was not who had done it. We all knew that. Me, the editor; everyone, in fact, but the perp himself. Well, I should say herself, since in this case it was a dame. Just my luck I had to be the one they picked to question her.
