Margo and the Urgent Elf: Mystery Short Story

by Frederick Ramsay

Margo Fairchild cheated at golf. Not during the yearly tournament at the country club where it would not go unnoticed, but other times, in her twice weekly rounds with her friends, for example. Bernice, Mavis and Grace were women she’d known since High School. If they suspected anything amiss with her score, they never said so. Margo, in turn, assumed (correctly) that they, as she, had adopted their own set of rules and scoring systems. In any event, Margo had a low handicap which, in turn, meant she would never win the club championship.
