Steele Trap – 22

Outside …

walkingintandem

Our heroes go for a romantic stroll.

stopshort

Suddenly something causes Steele to stop short. Did he see something, or is it a cunning maneuver to feel Laura up?

You’re not fooling anyone, Mr. Steele.

incriminating

Oh, wait. I guess he DID see something. Specifically, Dominic bending over Feldman’s dead body.

heshoots

Dominic sees them and pulls out his piece.

ohbehave2

Sorry.

shootsagain

The Silent Partner fires his loud gun at our heroes.

theyhide

They take cover. Steele seems better covered than Laura. Not very gentlemanly, sir.

dominicrunsaway

Dominic scampers off into the forest.

theypursue

Laura and Steele leave their not-very-adequate cover.

piercesbutt

They head for Feldman’s body. Look at Laura’s bouncing hair! Look at Steele’s nicely toned butt!

deadfeldman

They find Feldman still dead.

notverypoetic

Steele picks up the murder weapon.  “Not very poetic,” he comments.

gotthejobdone

“But it certainly got the job done.”

Well, there’s something to be said for efficiency.

backtothehouse

“We’d better get back to the house before he does,” Laura suggests.

Um, considering he ran off a while ago and you’ve been here musing over the corpse, I’m pretty sure he will have beaten you back to the house already if that’s his destination, Laura. But what do I know; I’m not a detective.

returningtohouse

They approach the house at a gallop.

lockthedoors

Laura’s firing off orders:   “You lock the doors and windows down here, I’ll take the second floor.”

dynamicduo

Even in times of great stress, they make a nice looking couple, don’t you think?

slamthedoor

Steele slams the door shut behind them …

anotherbuttshot

… offering us another butt shot. Why not take off that jacket, Mr. Steele?

milhouseeyebrows

You must be a little warm.

steelegraceful

He races into the drawing room to lock the windows.

alarmedsteele

What’s this? Piano music coming from upstairs? (Steele looks genuinely rattled here.)

pianoplaying

Well, that’s weird. Especially since the piano is down here, in the same room Steele is in.

steeledetermined

Perhaps concerned for Laura’s safety, Steele sets his own fear aside.

headingupstairs

He heads upstairs …

warysteele

… enters Ambrose’s room and discovers …

fluffybed

Laura, and a tape player.  “I found it hidden in Dominic’s room,” she tells Steele.

hekilledmadeline

Steele is relieved. “That seems to nail it. He killed Madeline, put that tape on and was back in his room in time to react to the attempt on your life.”

untilhespositive

Okay, but: “He won’t leave this island until he’s positive we’re not around to testify against him,” Laura reminds him.

wonderfulromanticweekend

“What a wonderful, romantic weekend this has turned out to be,” Steele comments as they head for the door.

piledwithcorpses

“Trapped in a house piled with corpses while a determined killer lurks outside.”

lookcarefully

In the doorway they look right … (Note how Steele’s hand is protectively on Laura’s arm here. Aw.)

lookleft

… then left. The coast is clear.

Cautiously, they head back downstairs …

    The “stop short” maneuver – lol I never noticed that before … wait till we get to Steele in the Chips 😉 Yes, they certainly do look good together, even in times of stress. I love that little look left and right that they do.

    Fashion question … why does Mr. Steele have his tie tucked into his pants. Isn’t that a fashion faux pas?

      They do make such a great couple. They look fantastic together and work so well as partners. Love watching them run. They even run well together.

      Interesting how Laura didn’t correct Steele when he referred to their weekend as romantic.
