Ding dong,

“Oh darn, not while I’m in the middle of getting dressed.”

Susie answered the door after quickly throwing on a dress. A tall man stood there wearing a

long black cape and top hat. She was speechless.

“Pardon me ma’am,” he said in a deep voice. “Are you Susie Hammer?”

“Yes I am,” she said with a shaky voice. “Who are you?”

“I’m your father, Harold Hammer.”

“You can’t be. My father was executed for killing my mother. You better leave or I’ll call the

police.”

“The report of my death was an exaggeration. It is me, your father in person.”

“Can you prove it?”

“Yes,”

“How?”

“Tell me how your mother died.”

“She was cut into pieces,” she stammered.

“By a hacksaw.”

“Yes.”

“Well, here it is—this is the hacksaw.” He said pulling it out from under the cape.

Susie fainted.
