Evening, Miss Marcia. Sorry to be knocking on your door after dark like this without an invitation or anything, but I need to ask you if you've seen or heard anything suspicious around here tonight. I was just doing my late rounds around town to see that everything's buttoned down proper, and dang if that hunting hound of She's didn't suddenly come streaking down the trail like a bolt of lightening. Haven't seen Hector move that fast since he mixed it up with Painter last year, and he was howling like the very devil was after him! Knocked me clear off the trail into a bramble patch, and kept right on going like he didn't even know he hit anything! Sure looked like he was coming from this direction, so I thought I'd stop by and see if there's any problem.
By the way, do you happen to have any poultices or sticking plasters handy? Appears I'm bleeding in a few places from those brambles, and my ankle feels like I might have sprained it. Maybe could use a cup of tea and some tender nursing from my favorite sweetie.
