Murder mystery night has become a tradition on the last class before Halloween. A little fun champagne, a little Halloween candy, and a little skullduggery adds up to a great night of fun (and a great acting lesson!).
Lady Lila did lie about the vase, but only so Ettie wouldn’t get fired. Ambrose did borrow a hunting rifle, but only to take on his evening walk around the grounds (after all, a squirrel is just a rat with a good publicist). Eudora did seem pretty sketchy, but it wasn’t her calling Ambrose from the servants’ entrance. And Lady Adella was keeping an uninvited guest under lock and key…but then again, so was I.
See, Ambrose’s first wife wasn’t dead after all. And if he’d found out, he wouldn’t have married Lila. And if he didn’t marry Lila, the title of Lord wouldn’t have stayed with the Hall. So when she tracked him down to our humble mansion, things kinda heated up a bit.
This year it turned out that the butler did it. And who was the butler? Well, Andrew chose to play Ambrose, so yours truly ended up being the one who whacked Ambrose’s first wife over the head with a chair so she wouldn’t expose a dark secret.
P.s. Thanks to Mrs Creepy for standing in as Chelsea Clearwater. It’s all fun and games until somebody loses their head!
