The Bullet That Missed: A Thursday Murder Club Mystery
Bethany Waites understands there is no going back now. Time to be brave, and to see how this all plays out.
She weighs the bullet in her hand.
Life is about understanding opportunities. Understanding how rarely they come along, and then rising to meet them when they do.
‘Come and meet me. I just want to talk.’ That’s what the email had said. She has been playing it over in her mind ever since. Should she?
One last thing to do before she decides: send Mike a message.
Mike knows the story she is working on. He doesn’t know the details – a reporter has to keep her secrets – but he knows it’s a risky one. He’s there if she needs him, but there are some things you have to do alone.
Whatever happens tonight, she would be sad to leave Mike Waghorn behind. He is a good friend. A kind and funny man. That’s why the viewers love him.
But Bethany dreams of more, and maybe this is her chance. A dangerous chance, but a chance all the same.
She writes her message, and presses send. He won’t reply tonight; it’s late. That’s probably for the best. She can hear his voice now: ‘Who texts at ten p.m.? Millennials and sex pests, that’s who.’
Here we go, then. Time for Bethany to spin the wheel of fortune. Will she live, or will she die?
She pours herself a drink, and takes one final look at the bullet. Really, she has no choice at all.
