The Perfect Place for Murder

Words 101

“Love this place,” she snuggled close. “Not a soul in sight.”

“There goes your solitude,” he pointed to the couple bobbing in a boat.


He shrugged. “Who else would come here?”

“Murderers?” She suggested. “The perfect place. No one would ever know.” She clutched his arm. “Look! He’s strangling her.“

He squinted. “Nonsense.”

“Oh do something!” she cried.


“Save her.” She divested him of his jacket. “Go before he kills! I’ll never be able to enjoy my anniversary!”

Agonizing minutes later he squelched back to dry land.

“Is she dead?”

“No. You are.” He bit out. “They were smooching.”

  1. Ha! Ha! So funny. But he could have been strangling her. And started kissing her when he saw some was approaching them. I like to believe she saved the woman’s life albeit temporarily.
    Good morning Dahlia. Enjoying last few days in India before going back to near freezing temperature.
