I have been sharing excerpts from The Crone Club.  Everyone seemed to like the arrival of the car last week so I thought I would treat you to Frank’s reaction on seeing it for the first time.

“Frank yanked his dressing gown back on, pushed past Cass and strode towards the bedroom windows, which gave a view of the front drive. He whisked back the curtains, then gave a hoot of outrage: “Hell’s teeth! What in God’s name is that?”
Cass rushed to the window and saw, parked on their drive, an old Citroen 2C, gaudily painted in retro-60s, gaudy, multi-coloured psychedelia. Frank gave another curse, then closed the curtains hastily.
“Tell that – that hippie to get her repellent object out of my drive now!” he shouted, while Cass gazed at him anxiously. “The neighbours will think we’re all on drugs…”

I have had a lot of kind comments about the opening of The Crone Club which I shared for last week’s blog hop. Thank you one and all. Several people wanted to know what happens next, so I thought I would continue this week with more from further on in Chapter 1.

As Cass tried to ease herself into sleep, the sound of a car engine began to intrude on her fitful dreams. In the silent streets the vehicle could be heard approaching from some distance away. It was an old-fashioned engine, which did not purr politely like modern cars, but made a flatulent roar that could wake up the whole neighbourhood. Cass looked anxiously in the direction of Frank’s bed, but he just snorted in his sleep. A growing suspicion that this car was coming straight to her door was confirmed when, a few minutes later, there was a brief flash of headlights through the curtains, followed by a screech of brakes outside, the slam of a car door and a ring on the doorbell.
