Welcome to Three Word Thursday #9. This week, joining the quondam word-list, we have jussulent, tenebrous, & ebullient. We also have a whole list of perspicacious writers. If you enjoy reading my story, leave a comment then click on the names of the other players and go see how they used the words. You’ll be entertained (and possibly educated) all at once.
The Investigation Begins
Copper parked behind the police station. He needed to talk to the guys in forensics, see how far they’d gotten with the evidence, and check the call center to see if any weird tips had come in. The press had yet to get wind of the murders and the longer it took them to start clamoring for answers, the better chance the Department stood of actually being able to answer them.
He decided to start with forensics. The tenebrous basement lab was not one of his favorite places. He was never quite prepared for the sights and scents that greeted him when he pushed through those huge stainless steel doors.
Martin Credence, garbed in lab whites from head-to-toe, including his face mask, stood over a Bunsen burner stirring a jussulent beaker. Copper eyed the container warily, then nodded at it. “What’ve you got?”
Credence grinned. An ebullient light danced in his eyes. “Chicken soup,” he said. “Want some?”
No chickens were actually killed in the making of the soup.
