A Sequel for Mr. Edwards
by T. Delaplain

It had been Mr. Edwards idea to help Renee write “his” sequel from the quant ch√Ęteau in Provence. In fact the sequel had been entirely his idea. The promise had been extorted from her during a fierce re-write; the result of a tussle over the laptop and a tumble on the divan. Mr. Edwards, a minor character in her first novel had definitely become a distraction in the sequel. Her hand hestitated over the delete button.

“No Mr. Edwards, I do not see you as a seductive rogue, perhaps a stable lad in chapter 13? Never forget, Sir. Your place is on the page.”

Mr. Edwards can’t seem to stay where he is written or stay out of my flash fiction. A distraction indeed! If you’re curious about this literary terrorist you could read any of these flashes.

Of All the Gin Joints

“Bloody hell Edwards, where are you?”
The literary terrorist had escaped her capture and the plot hole was beyond repair without him. In a drastic twist, she conjured up a copper.
“When was the last time you saw the subject?” the constable asked.
“Chapter 13, but he always comes back by 17.”
“Do you recall anything suspicious?”
“Now that you ask, yes, he was wearing a fez.”
“A boozer, eh?”
“Quite the contrary. You Sir are in a Victorian romance and Mr. Edwards is never in his cups.”
“So you say but I’ll still check all the gin joints in all the world?”
