Here’s a little crime caper that was inspired by Lily Childs Friday Prediction. If you don’t know what the Prediction is then click the above link and give it a go! Also, be sure to check out her blog on a daily basis from the 1st of next month for her “February Femmes Fatales”. She’s got a fantastic line-up of writers!

Hope you liked it. Comments are more than welcome.
