danger and tone

Was poking at ideas about for continuing a story.

Had one that I was thinking was quite too dark for  the story.  The drama would jump too high, too abruptly

Then I pointed out to myself that I was thinking that about a work that opens with a woman thinking that her sister has been treacherously murdered, and while she finds that is false, she learns it was because of a vicious attack that would have proven fatal without her sister's quick work -- and willingness to let the culprit escape to strike again.

No, I just needed to make the opening tone darker to fit those things.
