Thoughts on Death of a Modern King
Okay. So. Stormy gets into a lot of crazy situations. Given the alarming regularity in which she stumbles over dead bodies, I worry the town will start shunning her soon. Nah, I’m just kidding. There will be no shunning. The town (mostly) loves her. She has friends tucked away everywhere she looks and a whole stable of men who keep giving her lovey-dovey eyes. *coughs pointedly at Officer Dimples*
She does, however, have an incredible talent for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Or maybe it’s the right place. I don’t know. What I do know is that dead bodies are practically falling into her lap, demanding she extract CRUEL VENGEANCE FOR THEIR UNTIMELY DEMISES! No, wait. That’s not quite right. What she does is unearths the secrets behind how the stiff ended up, well… stiff.
And she does it well.
I mean, she might get in a tangle or two with a billboard while doing it, but she LEARNS something from that tangle. Kinda. And then she uses the skills her pops instilled her with to ferret out the secrets of the town. Also, she unearths a hidden bunker. Which is all sorts of fun for everyone.
Stormy is quirky and fun and she’s certainly grown into the role she took on after finding that first body. She has a steady man (one who has a mystery or two lingering about him, it seems) and plenty of friends to lean on when the situation gets sticky. The only thing I worry about with her is who’s going to end up dead next.
