He took the envelope containing the dagger and hid it in the basement and then returned to the first floor. No one had seen him. He straightened his tie and walked to the lounge.

    I’m ALWAYS Professor Plum…!

    I must say, considering that the colonel, the dagger, the envelope, the library and the dungeon were all clues, I feel woefully inadequate in not having seen the ending coming!

    Well written, and makes me want to play Cluedo again, thanks for entering! MH :)
