The latest section of my short story’s narration is available for viewing on YouTube. Puzzled by Ms. E-B’s behavior, Semple’s twin daughters Wrenna and Maisie volunteer to uncover details regarding her. Semple ends up accepting Tacy Bronwell’s supper invitation.
During the evening he confides in Tacy about the housekeeper. Like the girls, she asks why Semple doesn’t just sack Ms. E-B. The reason he gives for not having done so embarrasses him.
