Finishing school

It’s that old canard – some fancy girl disappears for several months, no one knows where or isn’t saying, and tongues wag about how the family sent her off to avoid causing them any embarrassment.

Gwyneth was such a girl. She simply disappeared one night. Her parents deflected questions or gave noncommittal answers as to her whereabouts.

Neighbors “tsked” and her friends whispered behind their hands. Those jealous of the vivacious and popular teenager fed the rumor mill.

When she came home she was different… dangerous.

Little did anyone know that she could now kill a man with her bare hands.
