A MOTHER'S CONFUSION by Granny Annie
Susan's mother was aghast at the site visible to her. Brandon held Phillip tightly as he tried to frogmarch him down the stairs. Phillip was bound and gagged tightly. Despite his efforts he could not wriggle free. Susan went into a frenzy as she demanded Brandon explain what he had such a hold on her beautiful son Phillip.
"I found Phillip and was loading all your precious silver into a bag. I caught him and he tried to escape my grasp so I had to tie him up."
Phillip's shoulder was twisted in pain and he mumbled through the mask. Susan wanted to untie every knot and free her son. She could only snivel at the sticky wicket that they had to deal with. Phillip squirmed and squirmed desperately trying to tell something to his mother. Finally he was able to explain what had happened. Susan would never feel magnanimous toward Brandon. She hoped the authorities would be able to catch him.
It was obvious Brandon had been able to spoonfeed Susan a lie. Brandon left them to settle their problem by themselves while he ran off with the bag of silver family heirlooms.
