    Abbas takes a deep breath, revolver in hand, steadying himself for another shot at the assailants.

    *Firearms(5)

    *This skill is so much fun! You guys should have picked it!

    *Abbas firearms = 2/5 = success.

    The second assassin is shot through the chest and falls off the speeding carriage, dead.

    *Gross misses a turn*

    The two carriages canter to a halt.

    Horace pulls out his kerchief and mops his copiously sweating brow, then lights a cigar.

    Phew!

    Now that the carriages have finally stopped, Sam (who was more than happy to get off the roof) climbs down from the Royal Carriage to see if the prince-consort is unscathed from this ordeal.

    That was a close one, indeed. I will go and see if the prince-consort is okay.

    Inside the carriage, the elderly prince-consort and his valet appear to be quite unharmed.

    His highness is perfectly calm.

    *Sam Spot=3/4... You seem to remember the valet and you feel confident that he is not also an assassin.

    Abbas jumps off the carriage, briefly making sure no additional harm to the Prince is imminent before securing the perimeter.

    Anthony was bemused at the prince's demeanor upon his exit of the carriage.

    Forgive my befuddlement, Your Highness, but I wonder how a man taken hostage in such a manner remained so calm? It's of our experience the men we've dealt with are of a kind that makes living difficult for people of an affluent and prominent nature, as yourself.

    The prince-consort's valet answers in his stead.

    His Highness is a gentleman, gentlemen, and as such, he is always composed.


    *Horace = spot = 2/5 = too drunk to care.

    The Fatman continues to smoke and drink, and also produces a pie from inside his carriage.

    Omnomnom.

    Sam glad that the prince-consort is okay, began to search the assassins bodies for clues if further attacks will be made. During that he asked - Your Highness? Shall we escort you back safe to Cambridge?

    His Highness will wait here for his entourage to catch up. I shall run back to meet them on the way. The valet says. He slips out of the carriage and disappears down a laneway with alacrity.

    *Sam spot =3/4.

    Something seemed quite odd about that valet. Now that you think about it, you're sure he wasn't with the prince consort when he arrived.

    *Yuki you have about four hours left in which to post your turn. Since Abbas is checking the perimeter, he may intercept the 'valet' if you so choose.

    *Yuki misses a turn.

    *Turns out the Prince-consort was hypnotised into a horrible psychosomatic stomach disorder, which kills him within a year. Queen Victoria will be heartbroken and disappear from public life for years afterwards.

    THE END.
