"Come over here Brock, and look over this side." He pointed down the hill. That's where we had our murder."
"Murder?" My eyes must have opened wide. I looked over the edge, and saw only the sloping bank with its plants and trees.
"Yes," Mr. Sigas said. "Our cow was murdered one night. Torn limb from limb, it was.
"Ed," Mrs. Sigas said in a warning tone of voice.
Mr. Sigas continued. "You can imagine how we felt in the morning to come out to bits of our cow, here, and there, and everywhere. Found an ear in a rose bush, and her tail in the Hawthorn tree. Poor Bessy, she had an udder like no udder."
Recommended for ages 6-10
