another type of deadly weapon

Lavender Roaring Fork Clinchfield had something in common with the Misses Forsythia and Hydrangea; they all loved glitter. Hardcore crafters, the three of them spent Wednesday nights at his mansion hideout along with the rest of the Hot Glue Gunners. Chromium liked to model the many outfits, his tail a rhythmic counterpoint to the high-pitched giggles of the tipsy matrons. By the end of the evening, the frantic pace would become languid, and loose sparkles covered everyone with rainbow flair. All their creations were sold at the Rusted Sisters of Mercy thrift shop. Lavender’s impish impulses always made something inappropriate.
