She’d just read mystery book where the murder weapon was an icicle. They threw it into a lake to let the evidence melt. I hope that’s where she came up with that, anyway…
(Still trying different things for Inktober – only black ink this time!)
I mean, under that same line of thinking you could just make an ice mace and bludgeon them to death too. Icicles are too brittle.
And why wasn’t the lake frozen too?
