Check out The Policeman's Birthday Cake, which is jointly posted at the AwesomeDude and Codey's World sites.

Nice to see you at the keyboard again, Des!

Thanks Dude, it's just a short story to get my feet wet, so to speak, and hopefully get to finish a couple of longer ones I have been working on.

I must take the opportunity to thank Trab for his editing. I didn't think that editing could be so much fun. We edit together, on Skype or Google Docs, and the instantaneous feedback really works well when I to need to explain what I intended. Trab then punches and twists my words until they submit to being readable English.

Delightful, Des...and I don't mean the cake. There have been times when I wished for some frosting like that to speed things along. Glad to see you posting even a short story and look forward to whatever else you have working. Now if you don't mind...may I have the name of that apothecary? :sneaky:

Cole, Trab says " Hi." He is busy working in his garden.

As for the chocolate cake, it is hidden in my sneakily rolling introduction of the first paragraph. I had to look it up myself as I had forgotten what flavour it was.

I did have an idea to go dark with the story, but suddenly I couldn't resist the irony of the policeman not quite knowing what to do with a cell in his very own dungeon.

I'm glad the story delighted you.

Thank you.
