Story A Day Sept 14: The Count

The Count stormed down the stairs.

“Who are you?” he demanded to know.

“I am Special Agent Brown. I’m investigating the murder of the Duke.”

“Murder?” The Count quizzed as he nervously adjusted his ascot. “What gives you the power to barge in here at this time of night?”

“The Duke was hanged with a power cord. You paid for a power cord similar to the one he was hanged with just last week. This warrant gives me the authority to search your property for evidence.”

“Search if you like, you won’t find anything.” the count refuted as he tried to quickly think of a way to get out of this.
