Greetings peons and nitwits,
Your good pal, The Riddler, is back again to have some fun on this trivial of Tuesdays.
If you don’t know how this works (we go through this every week), every Tuesday I will be presenting you with a Riddle to challenge your puny minds. Remember the rules - No cheating or Googling. If you can answer the first riddle, a second will follow suit in the comments below.
Let’s have some fun!!
“Who shot her?” cried Ivy as she rushed into the hospital three minutes after her lover, Harley died from a bullet through her head.
“Just a minute, Ivy,” said Commissioner Gordon. “We’ll have to ask you a few questions-routine, you know. You have been living in the same house with Harleen, have you not?”
“That’s right,” replied Ivy.
“Had any trouble recently?”
“Well, yesterday, when I told her I was going on a business trip, she threatened to commit suicide. In fact, I grabbed a bottle of iodine from her as she was about to drink it. When I left last night around seven, however, telling her I was spending the night with friends outside of Gotham, sh e made no objection. Returning to town this afternoon,” continued Ivy, “I called my home and the maid answered.”
“Just what did she say?” inquired Gordon.
“‘Oh, Miss Ivy, they took poor mistress to Gotham General Hospital about half an hour ago. Please hurry to her.’ “She was crying, so I couldn’t get anything else out of her; then I hurried here. Where is she?”
“The nurse will direct you,” said Gordon with a nod.
“A queer case, this, Commissioner,” said Inspector Grayson. “These moderns are a little too much for me, I’m afraid. Two reformed female criminals in love and living together!”
“A queer case indeed, Inspector,” mused Gordon, “and you’d better detain Ivy. If she didn’t shoot her, I’m confident she knows who did.”
Why did the Commissioner advise the Inspector to detain Ivy?
