Emerson Lake and Palmer

Post by unseentangerine » Sat Jun 14, 2014 6:46 am

Officer Palmer drove down the long, gravel road to Emerson Lake. It was the humidity that made the 101 degree day run slow.
A cloud of dust caught up with him as he slowed and stopped his old Bronco near the water. In the reeds and grasses near the water's edge, it held a body (two dripping boys had run into town to report it). It was bloated, pallid and of a young woman.
Palmer sighed heavily, “Not again.”
He hefted from his vehicle another girl, and waded into the lake.
“I hope this offering is accepted,” he thought.

:twisted:
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.
