Yo. Playing.

I'm ready to catch the murderer! (Amanda loads her sixgun and puts on her hat and gunbelt)  We don't like killers in these parts.

Yes, we are.

But, as that Amanda's got the gun, it may be her!

Hey guys, just because I have a gun doesn't make me a murderer! I was just getting ready for a showdown with the murderer. I got to have a gun for that. What, you think I should go after a murderer naked?

I heard a noise outside my window like footsteps but when I looked outside it was so black I couldn't see anything. But then there was lightning and I could see a dark figure that moved behind a bush. I couldn't see anthing but I heard noises in the bushes. I watched for a while but I didn't see anthing more so I went back to bed but I couldn't sleep for a long time. Finally I fell asleep but then I dreamed of someone sneaking around outside my window. It was scary.

### Re: Wink Murder 5

Did amanda just die? Or was it my imagination?

Well, anyway, I may as well guess the murderer now, because I'm sure I'm going to be killed soon. But I don't know who.

I'll start with amanda. It might be her, because she is new and she also posted what might be a 'fake' death thing. On the other hand, maybe not. Insomnia picked and I don't think he would have picked himself. I don't think I am the murderer, but that's just my opinion. jU is unlikely. Zach and insomnia know each other in real life, so there is a possibility insomnia picked Zach. MathsIsFun also is a candidate. I also think it could be mathsy - he was murderer last time, so insomnia might have picked him to throw us off the track.

So I guess...

A strong wind blows in through my window. Everything swirls around and the room becomes dark. There is somebody else in the room. I can feel their presence.

Okay, I better guess quickly then. Um...

A hooded figure glides across the room and grabs a paperweight.

Arggh! I guess...

THUD! The paperweight connects with my head and I fall to the ground. My head is pounding. Noooo! Just take a guess. I try to get the words out of my mouth, but no one can hear as I give a final whisper. I close my eyes and die. All that guess work for nothing. The murderer slides away, into the shadows, once again.

### Re: Wink Murder 5

MathsIsFun always gets killed first. It's a tradition. The only way that the tradition could be broken is if for some reason he couldn't be killed. The only reason for that would be that he is the murderer. So, that's my guess. MathsIsFun is the murderer!
