Welcome, my chuckaboos, to another episode ashore in my fictional, Victorian Era version of Cairo, Illinois.

Last year, just as this riverboat left the dock, Rob Goldstein left an amazing “random reader thing.”  It’s Telectroscope.  Read on to learn what that is.

Now we return to Émeraude and Eliza.  I think Victor and Randall are about to join them. Without further ado…

All aboard!

The Delta Pearl

Chapter 38 — Tangle

Following the clockwork scarab, I ran out the library door.  I barreled straight into Dr. Victor T. Elam, my young inventor.  We both landed on our backsides.

Randall Needleman, the wealthy entrepreneur and Eliza’s husband, looked down at us.  His expression was startled yet bemused.  His mustache twitched.  I knew he was trying not to laugh – because I could see for myself that it was a comical thing.

“Miss, are you hurt?” asked Jet Fischer, the librarian.

The bustle and the voluminous fabric of my gown had tangled me.  At the same moment, both Jet and Randall bent to help me up.  Victor was also getting to his feet, but he tried to avoid stepping on my skirts.  That caused him to stumble into Jet, who then lost his balance and fell into Randall.  A second later all four of us were in a heap at the entrance to the library.

A street urchin ran to his friends, shouting “Fight!  Fight!”


Head over to discover how this is going to turn out…
