I Don’t Have a Clue

“Well if you’re so smart? Who dunnit?” she asked.

“Professor Plum, in the conservatory, with a rope,” he replied.

“Are you sure?”

“I’m positive.”

“Only fools are positive,” she quipped.

“Are you sure?” he asked.

She shrugged, “I’m not sure of anything.”

  3. Great job on this, I like how you told the story with it. It is interesting that I’m not the only person who went with Clue for the prompt and yours is very different from mine!
