Flash in the Pan

Everything was perfect; from the linens to the music to the punctuality of the meal.

When he woke up in the hospital, he was babbling about a body tied to the crystal chandelier.

  6. I see that you are flashing everything at the moment with this wicked one, but don’t worry I like it a lot, shame that the groom missed out on the cutting of the cake, though I imagine he will soon be getting some, or is that the other way around? πŸ˜‰ lmao

    The ending brought to mind the movie “War of the Roses.”

  8. Maybe it’s luck the groom missed out on the cake. He doesn’t need anymore sugar. What do you suppose he was on? Ha ha. Love your twisted endings. This one is another fabulous example.
