Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Your three words are:

Detective Fisher had to think fast. He didn’t want Eileen to change her mind although she might not like his suggestion either. Many times in the past they had used decoys to set up a suspect. If he could get her to agree to be a decoy and lure in the professor they might catch him in the act although the last thing he wanted was to get Eileen hurt if something went wrong and plenty could go wrong.
“Eileen and Kyle I need to have a serious talk with you two right now. I have to leave and get this case started. Eileen you will have to file a rape report, but we will keep that silent for now because I would like to use you as a decoy or lure to draw him in and catch him in the act. However, and this is a big however, this is dangerous for you. We would do everything we can to keep you safe, but something could always go wrong. You need to understand that before agreeing to be a decoy.”
Eileen and Kyle look at each other. Kyle says, “I don’t want anything to happen to you, I love you very much. It would kill me if he managed to kill you. However, I agree, that this cannot go on forever. He seems to think he owns you and who knows how many others right here at this university he might be doing this too as well. Someone has to stop him. The man is a monster.”
Kyle turns to Detetive Fisher with tears in his eyes. “Do you truly think you can pull this off and that she won’t be hurt?”
“Kyle, I would give my life to save her if need be. I promise to do my best to keep Eileen safe. You will have to trust me and my team.”
“Ok, let’s do this,” Eileen says, trying to sound brave, but the fear was in her eyes.
