Louise and the Death Skull

It is starting to seem that Louise and the Death Skull may wind up being a novella instead of a short story. I forgot how exciting it can be to write a new character into a story.

But our next new character is Louise, Jenna's older sister. She's four years older than her. She looks nearly identical to her sister, except for older and with a better fashion sense. She's exceedingly prim and proper, and doesn't like to waste time on anything idle.
Louise Francesca Warren prefers reading to anything else, including sleep and food. She never goes anywhere without at least one book on hand.
Her hair is kept pulled back with a pencil, and she uses that pencil to make notes in the margins of her books. Someday she hopes to be a teacher.
