Hot Flash

Frannie closed the newspaper, smoothing the pages. Obituaries were her daily breakfast reading.

Her smile was wry. Yes, Marcel had gotten her wedding present of vintage wine. Knowing he and his bride had shared it on their wedding night somehow did not ease her brokenhearted mood.

  1. A needle in the cork, undetectable to those not seeking it. πŸ˜‰

    • Ah, but in a poisoning, the police would have been looking for a punctured cork. Think on it.

      • arsenic, causes flu like symptoms undetectable in small doses over time no reason to suspect anything unless someone is suspicious……the flu like symptoms don’t lend to suspicion, no looking for discoloration of the fingernails…….hmm, this is going to take some time……..

        • she made the wine, she waited years; she owns the winery it came from……….ok that’s a stretch.

          • LOL! You were on the right track first. She sent the wine as a wedding present to him and her, who drank it on their wedding night. She is brokenhearted.

  2. There is nothing
    like a good flash Red πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    I will go and and make a list (WHO ME, WHO SAID THAT? πŸ™‚ lol) of those next and try and complete it this time…

    Have a lovely rest of evening and a vacation of complete relaxation, oh I don’t know though perhaps a couple of man-slaves could accompany you on your holiday, sort of ease you into a… Never mind πŸ™‚ Enjoy your break and be naughty πŸ˜‰

    • I think my shipment may have been sent to the wrong address. Do you think that might be who is partying at my neighbor’s home? πŸ˜‰ Mums the word about the list. See you in a few, my friend πŸ˜‰

      • Yes well if there are loud hauntingly sweet wicked and delicious screams being heard then YES it was delivered to the wrong address but don’t panic you have plenty of everything for this to be one of the most deliciously orientated vacations that you have ever had πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

        Wow I think that I will pack my bag and join you, it sounds so exciting and I could just do with some, nooo I mean some relaxing days and nights by the pool sipping cocktails and being waited on hand and foot by the nymphs of the night, well something like that anyway πŸ˜‰

        Have a lovely time my sweet and great friend you deserve it πŸ™‚

  7. My brain does not work this morning, I am not going to tax it. But I love brokenhearted revenge!

  8. Poison in the glass provided with the gift of wine? Perhaps a coating of foxglove extract–That would certainly cause a “brokenhearted” effect.
    MJ Logan recently posted..For the Love of WaterMy Profile

    • Great poison, but I do not think it was a gift basket. Just a bottle of vintage wine.

  9. Perhaps a little poison around the lip of the bottle.
    Binky recently posted..Holiday Jolly MuscleMy Profile

    • That would have to be some really powerful poison. Which one did you have in mind?
