#WIPpet Wednesday - Murder at the Bingo Hall - Missing Mate
This is a first snippet from my NaNoWriMo WIP, Murder at the Bingo Hall, which is all Andrea's fault...as always. ;) This actually started out as her creation.
The story features Iris (George's mum) and her friend Pauline, who are both bingo regulars and also cleaners at the bingo hall. That's where this story begins.

And the WIPpet Snippet:
There was nothing else for it; Iris finished the row of tables she was on, dumped the bag of rubbish and marched back upstairs to the foyer and pushed the toilet door open.
“Paul? You in there, love?”
No response was forthcoming, or none she heard. She cocked her head and listened.
Still not a peep. Iris released the door and set off for the main entrance, which was the only external exit Pauline could use without giving away that she was skiving.
“Oy, we’re a long way off done, you know,” Iris said as she stepped outside, catching her breath in the chilly air. The wind was bitter and blowing rain right in her face, making it hard to see, but not so hard she’d have missed Pauline had she been out there. Truth be told, no-one in their right mind would stay out there longer than need be. It was Baltic.
