THE DEATH GOBLET

For those of you who are keeping track, episode 50 of the Trowbridge Chronicles is coming up soon. Stay tuned.

If you're an observer of details, you might like to know that you can identify a Trowbridge shrew from a mouse by their tail. Notice how Keno's tail is white on the bottom. That's an identifying marker of a Trowbridge shrew. They average four inches long.

Once again Keno finds himself on the horns of a dilemma. Can you think of a person or creature, with the possible exception of Jack Bauer or the Baudelaire orphans in Lemony Snicket's books, who lives life at such a heart stopping pace as does Keno? Neither can I. Let's hope that he gets a chance to recover from all his misfortunes soon...that is, if he lives long enough to recover. Our story resumes...

o_o!!! Such a cliffhanger. But I have to say, the whole time I kept hearing, "They were both poisoned. I spent the last few years building up an immunity to iocane powder" in my head.

Tap tap tap? Keno must still be concious if he has the ability to feel that tap. Surely he drank the
"brew that is true"......

I loved your Mischief entry on the PB Showcase!
