Hump Day Hook - 5th June

 
It's good to be back again.  This week's HDH offering is from a WIP, working title, Megan's Story. Thanks for coming by, I always enjoy feedback.


“Did she now?”  Unaware of her maid’s desperate grab to prevent the tiffany lamp from crashing to the floor, Esmy paced the cluttered room her lace shawl fanning out behind her.  “Her latest scheme must be even more outrageous than usual then, and now it’s coming unstuck.”  After the last outrageous scheme to extort money from a prominent banker in the City that resulted in the threat of prosecution, Esmy had hoped her daughter would learn her lesson.  Apparently it hadn’t achieved the desired affect.  It seemed the money it cost her to hush up the affair had been a waste of effort.  Turning, Esmy focused on the woman still waiting for instructions.  “I’m not interested in my daughter’s threats, if she calls again tell her …”
