Nectere

Gwen studied the crime reports for Cardiff. There was something niggling at her, but it was just out of reach.

"Tosh, could you print me out another report? I need Sundays between these times." She scribbled the details, watching as the results scrolled down the monitor. "Look at that."

"I can't even pronounce that name correctly."

"It's not just the streets, it's family names and businesses." Gwen had found a rash of petty crimes occurring during morning services where the targets had the names of saints in common."

"The local police won't be pleased to hear they missed that connection."

I've noticed the police have a singular lack of imagination when it comes to those kind of odd connections. We once had a series of arsons in old abandoned buildings, which seemed unrelated until someone figured out they were forming the shape of a huge pentagram.

Hmmmm... plot bunny!

Nothing says bored teenagers like a pentagram. That is a fine plot bunny, I look forward to seeing if yours has teeth.

Funny you should put it that way ... sometimes my best writing ideas come back to bite me.

Hmm... What's the Anglican variant of Mass, as in being in the church rather than the ritual itself? Service? My brain fails me at the moment.

Thanks. Morning services was the only thing I could think of too. I just always associate saints with the Catholics, so went for Mass. Well, that and the word limit.
