    I'll say Ruth able did it. She did it because she was in love with john Ready.
    she lived right underneath Mr. Ready and could hear clearly the aurguments about his infidility. She was jealous that John had to use caution when sneaking between houses to see her. She didn't like the idea that he was married to Abigail. Besides John was always telling her that he'd wished he met her first and married her instead. He told her that the only reason he hung around was because she promised to invest in his private business once she turned 21. John had big ideas. He always dreamed of breaking away from Finklestein and Finklestein corp. They paid him a salary not even a receptionist would want. With his own business, he would unleash all those brilliant ideas he had. He would hire only the best. He told Ruth of all the things he would lavish her with if only he had the money to get his business going. If only he had the heart to murder Abigail without leaving a trace of fowl play. If only she would die in her sleep. But john was a wimp. he dared not even raise an eyebrow at Abigail.

    So the plot began. Ruth told John how much she loved him, that she would do anything for him. Even if it was murdering Abigail. She didn't like her anyway. Not because she was married to John, but because Abigail was a cold women. She watch her leave every morning. Sometimes she wore her soft pink cashmere sweater with the matching tank top underneath it. With her soft silky cream skirt that swung with every move she made. How could someone so cold dare to wear such soft beatiful clothing. Giving the impression that she was soft and sweat. Heck, Abigail would walk right by her without even a hello. Look her right in her face, turn her nose up, and keep on going like she wasn't even there.

    On April 3, the plot was in motion. John would clue Ruth when it was safe to come in by arguing with Abigail. This wasn't unusually for them. Once the argument stopped, Ruth knew it was time to clean up the mess that John had made by marrying Abigail. Ruth grabbed the paelette knife that she had sitting on her kitchen counter. She had it out because she was desiring a sandwich and needed it to carve the edges of her bread. She hated the brown part of the bread. She decided not to eat anything, her stomach was churning from fear and excitement. She was about to have her true love and the cost of it was a minor one. At 3am she finally got tired of playing out the scene over and over in her head. she walked into Johns house. surprized to see Abigail still awoke. They struggle for a few. knocking over the coat rack that stood by the door. Caught off guard by the crashing sound of the coat rack hitting the floor, Abigail hestiated and thats when Ruth went in for the kill.


    LOL I don't know if this was what you was looking for. I know I got carried away but I was bored and this was the perfect stimulation to end my night. Hope you like it!

    JUST as the jury was about to bring in the verdict (of guilty of course)...the detective ran into the courtroom...WAIT, WAIT...HE SCREAMED..I have new evidence about this case...
    the judge gravelled the court to quietness and a tense hush came over the room..Ruth, who had been fearful and teary felt her heart pump hard against her chest..John Ready who had been nearvous could hear her heart from across the room and looked at her longingly...Florence Floogle sat with her back straight..and was suddenly shaken by the screams of the detective..
    the judge said"this is irregular detective...why have you not given this information to the defense..why all this drama, i do not like it in my courtroom" the DA...jumped up saying "thank you your honor..this should not be entered into the records and if the officer has something to say the jury should not be allowed to hear it"...the judge was in agreement..and ordered the jury out...as they marched out..the detective screamed...MS ABLE DIDN'T DO IT..IT WAS.."stop" screamed the judge..."wait until the jury has left....IT WAS THE..."did you hear me the judge said...i will get the baliff"...IT WAS FLORENCE FLOOGLE.!!!
    the jury stopped...the chatter stopped and the judge stopped...all eyes
    went to floogle...Floogle looked around..some innocence shown in her eyes, some mist filled them up and gave them radiance .. as she crumbled in tears ...I didn't mean to...i didn't...it was an accident... I had been painting my little watercolors when I heard her traipsing in his room. I had to tell her ... no matter how much she liked him , he would never be hers...he would never be anybodies...but MINE...i housed him fed him bathed him when he was ill...and then she.. Ruth able or fable whatever came into his life and tried to take him,, but i warned her and him too...I thought it would be okay, but them Miss Smythe came and he started dating her, but one night i saw him with that heifer able and i knew he was just using miss smythe...i just wanted to tell her...to let her know...and she got so angry with me...said she knew i loved him, she slapped me we fought and the palette knife ..the knife just..it was an accident...and then i thought i could make it seem as if able had done it..then they would both be dead...and i would still have ready at the ready...
    oooh....john i love you...love..ENOUGH gravelled the judge....ms..able you are free to go. balif lock up floogie.
    Ms. Ă…ble and Mr. Ready...moved to each other..WAIT...how did you know detective...how..."well", he said, it was something about those 32 minutes between her discovery and her calling it in that made me think...and then when I saw the watercolors she had b een working on...flowers, fruits...they were really all of him...Ready...and the fruit had little knife knicks...I just put it all together...this was a gamble
    ready and able..this was a hunch...and it paid off. Able & Ready smiled at him. Ready and able thanked him..and then Ready & Able were Gone!
