The Whatevers #12: A Letter from Wintson

So I managed to keep you in suspense for another month, and it looks like I might have to leave you hanging again. I've got 2 pages left in my book so I thought I'd finish this up soon. This is the last picture for our Whatevers and I just couldn't bring it all to an end with this photo -- but I've got a great finale planned that I think you will love. Until then I'll get you in the mood for some more mystery, ha ha.

And, before I get started with Cordelia and Winston, take a minute to check out what Nat and Vic's Whatevers are up to this month!

Cordelia had returned home to Germany without Winston and had settled in to the Castle with her family for the long haul. Life was starting to return to normal -- and it was summer so she had plenty of summer activities to keep Winnie and Newt busy. Like boating on the pond on the Castle grounds. 
Normally a fun passtime, but now she couldn't even think about boating. A messenger had just hand-delivered a letter. The envelope had her name scrawled across the front. 
And it was in Winston's handwriting. 

She was afraid and excited to open it -- she thought she should wait until she was alone in case it was bad news. So she slipped away from the festivities at the pond.
My Dearest Cordelia,  
I don't have much time before the guard returns so I will spare you the details until I see you again. 
PLEASE DO NOT worry. I am fine.
I am working on a way to get home to you and the children. 
your loving husband.
Cordelia was elated and her wonderful husband was still alive! She said a little prayer and returned to the party. It was a wonderful day to celebrate the Summer Solstice -- she couldn't hope but have a little hope that he'd be home before the end of Summer so they could go home!
Here's the image so you can play, just take a minute to check out the details below!
