I am NOT gossiping!

By Megan, Friend of Kelly Flynn in
Maggie Sefton's SKEIN OF THE CRIME

Hey, you guys---I've only got a minute. Kelly will be right back. She's gone to the cafe for some of Pete's great coffee, but I know Kelly. She'll chat with Jennifer, who's taking a break from waiting tables. Anyway. . .I grabbed Kelly's laptop and found this blog she'd talked about. I wanted to give you guys some info about what's been going on in Kelly's life. . .and why we. . . Kelly's friends. . .are worried.

Okay, I guess I need to introduce myself. I'm Megan Stroud, computer & tech geek. Kelly always comes to me whenever she needs major help in seaching out Web info when she's sleuthing. That's what her friends and I call it when Kelly's investigating a murder. Not that she's supposed to, mind you. She's poked her nose in WAY too many dangerous situations, if you ask me. . .but that's another story.

Right now, I wanted to give you an update on what's been happening since, well. . .since Kelly and Steve's breakup. First. . .let me make it clear. I wanted to strangle Steve when I learned about it. I was SO mad. How could he be so stupid to do that! He knew how much Kelly cared for him. And believe me, I really laid into him when Steve finally dared show his head back in Fort Connor. Uh, huh. Didn't come to see any of us for a month.

Oh, yeah. . ."us" is the gang. Me and my boyfriend, Marty, Lisa and her boyfriend, Greg, Kelly and Steve, and Jennifer and Pete. Yeah, Pete the cafe owner. I am SO happy they're together, but we'lll have to talk about that another time. Anyway. . .Steve finally showed up at Lisa and Greg's house and. . .well, Lisa and I let him have it. We couldn't help it. We were SO mad! Anyway. . . Steve knows it. He knows he screwed up BIG TIME. We all started giving him advice. . .uh, oh. I think I heard Kelly's voice. Darn! I didn't think she'd come back so soon. I'd better log out now. Don't want Kelly to know I'm gossiping about her. . .outside of the gang that is. Maybe Jennifer can find a moment to fill you in----

"Oh, hi. Didn't think you'd mind if I checked my email. . ." ----end of transmission

  1. wait, Megan, come back. You said you "wanted" to strangle him, does that mean you changed your mind?

  3. Hi Megan,

    It's hard when your best friend's love life is going badly, but hang in there. I finally got my BFF, Skye engaged--although she went and did it when I was out of town. Grr! Now I just need to get her down the aisle.

  5. Megan -- so glad you and Lisa had that "discussion" with Steve! What was he thinking? I hold out hope that it'll all work out. Thanks for the update.

  6. Kelly is lucky to have a friend like you, Megan! Sounds like you're a big help to her when she needs to do a little online research.

  7. Megan, I've only read up to book 4 in the series. And I have to read the series in order, don't ask. I am hoping Steve isn't being a total jerk and didn't do something unforgivable. I love the circle of friends who meet at the knitting table. Kelly needs friends since she has no family.

  11. Paige---That's just it. Steve WASN'T thinking. He couldn't have been. He's smarter than that.
