Lesson in Murder

They exchange secrets. Women dripping in diamonds and designer labels smirk at Jane. Formality meant they had to invite everyone, even her, to these events. She didn’t fit.

Jane gulps her glass of merlot.

Soon, this cavernous house will spill with wine-stained bodies.

  1. I liked the images “this cavernous house will spill” and “wine-stained bodies”. Okay, just the whole last line. I’m not sure you need to say “She didn’t fit.” We get that sense anyway.

    Great imagery here. Nice job establishing in few words the contrast between the MC and the other women. I was a bit confused at the phase “house will spill”.

    1. Thanks for commenting!

      Gah, that line made more sense when I wrote it.


  3. So very sinister! I’d love to know more about how Jane warrants an invitation, if she doesn’t fit in. I do like the how your tone conveys her resentment.

  4. This is a very creepy piece. I am really wondering if the MC put something in the wine OR if I am being overly horrific and maybe it is referring to these perfect biatches getting smashed and making fools of themselves and puking all over their designer labels :)\


    1. Oh, never mind. I was right. I should read titles 😛
