A tricky dilemma 2 – Despicable me by Francine

Being blackmailed isn’t an enjoyable situation.

My decision is made. The Earl is an old dear who thinks his young wife is a paragon of virtue, not the little gold digger people say I am.

I ask him if he would like to spend the morning by the lake. The path is a steep slope. I lose my footing and the Earl’s wheelchair goes down racing towards the lake. My cries of panic alert the butler who comes back to me, grim-faced and distraught.

‘My Lady, the Earl is dead,’ he sobs pathetically.

I faint.

Time for plan B.
