A Real Scoop

by Lynda Wilcox
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 17/06/2013

The editor gave his ace crime reporter a list of names.

"All these old ladies have mysteriously disappeared in the last week. Get on it, Chip."

Chip grabbed his notebook and went to interview the neighbours.

"We saw a strange light in the sky," said one woman's husband.

"It was the work of aliens," said another's neighbour.

"I saw a flying saucer. Then she was gone."

Three almost identical accounts. Chip raced back to the office and wrote up his story. What a scoop!

"I like it, Chip. I'm just not sure of your headline."

INVASION OF THE BIDDY SNATCHERS.
