Love is relentless, the heart delicate – a mystery
This year’s theme at the Writers Ballad Convention, is all about Love, since it is after all being held on Valentines day. Both professional as well as amateur writers will be gathering together to express their stories of L’amour of love. Each writer has their turn on stage, expressing their love the best way they know. Poems and beautiful descriptive prose fill the hall, making many a heart flutter.
Tears were very close to flowing over as the words pierced many hearts. Each writer giving their very best to those gathered around. Emotions were high, and each word was a treasure and expression of love. Surely all bad feelings and dark thoughts were swept away on this dramatic occasion.
One of the poets rises and lurches towards the stage, he stands and utters a few illegible words and unceremoniously falls down dead. Has somebody harbored bad feelings towards their fellow writer? Did emotions run too high during this year’s writer’s event? evidently as murder took centre stage this day. Was this a crime of passion as emotions ran high or was this a premeditated crime of murder and revenge?
Everybody is gathered together, and investigations proceed, finding the concealed offender that turned a day of love into a day of mayhem and secrets.
Who is the unfortunate poet? That is up to you to discover, a part although significant, is only fleeting!
