The Safest Savings

“”The sun shines upon me so blindingly I can barely see my screen. Alas, I found a few minutes to write so let’s have a fun tale shall we?”

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompt:

The Safest Savings

“Oh no! Where is it!” Edwina worried as she scanned the bookshelves.

Brexit had managed to obviate her bank account. But Edwina was canny, she’d hidden some savings.

The money was now so safe even she couldn’t find it.

She rifled through many romance, science and travelogue books.

“It’s hopeless! Like finding a particular balloon in a party warehouse!”

A feline growl emanated from the bookshelf as ’The Wealthy Barber’ crashed back into place.

Zaza the tawny cat shook her head. Deciding to help she nosed ‘Sapiens’ onto the floor spilling wads of cash.

Edwinna grinned, ‘Thank heavens for a witches cat.’

The End

Have you ever hidden money in a strange place to keep it safe and maybe lost it? Why not share in the comments for fun?


Don’t forget Holly Ward investigates, Stolen Treasures is out on Amazon now!

A recent bank robbery. A saddened man. A coded message. Can they all be connected?
Young Sleuth Holly Ward is determined to help the man. It’s not long before she too comes under assault from a group of dangerous individuals. In the face of intimidation, abduction and even murder can Holly solve the clues and catch the criminals before she becomes the next Stolen Treasure?
