Dear Diary… What have I done! This Whyte creature has been nothing but a disaster from the moment she lit the gas. Our deal was a simple one: she gets to live in with all the perks a modern manor like Kilgrave can offer and in return I don’t have to pay her a penny so long as I eat what she cooks. Well… Dear Diary I had no idea that this woman was going to attempt to turn me into a .. into a… I don’t know if I can bring myself to say it? A vegetarian. There – I’ve said it – it’s done. For the past four weeks I have not had a sniff of a sausage, a chance of a chop or a stab at a steak. Instead my daily mealtimes have been made up of carrot, cucumber, parsnip and potato. And don’t think I haven’t paid the butchers bill! Oh no, I’ve seen the delivery slips for the meat. Almost three times a week that boy pushes his bicycle up the driveway with a basket full of bloody packages and does any of it make its way onto the plate? No it does not. I’ve made up my mind. I shall be releasing Whyte from her service tomorrow. She will be banished from the Kilgrave estate first thing. No if’s or but’s. I know it is Christmas Eve tomorrow and I shall bring to proceedings the ghost of old Ebinezer Scrooge himself but enough, as the say dear diary, is enough. At Kilgrave Manor I am not at home to Mrs Rude… and from tomorrow, nor am I at home to Miss Whyte.
The original Philadelphia Deringer was a muzzle loading single-shot pistol introduced by Henry Deringer. The term “derringer” has come to refer to any small-sized handgun that is neither a revolver nor a semi/fully automatic pistol. All were single barrel pistols with back-action percussion locks, typically .41 calibre with rifled bores, and walnut stocks.
This is a Remington Model 95 over-under double-barrelled Derringer. The Remington Derringer design doubled the capacity, while maintaining a compact size, by adding a second barrel on top of the first and pivoting the barrels upward to reload. Each barrel chambered one round, and a cam on the hammer alternated between the top and bottom barrels.
