When did you plan this?

Don’t go there, it doesn’t matter.

Please, tell me, I need to know, when?

I’ve been planning it for ages, ever since we had that argument at New Year.

That is what is behind all this?

I am surprised you are surprised.

* * *

So am I going to die?

We are all going to die, sweetheart.

But am I going to die now?

I’d say that is becoming increasingly likely.

Why are you doing this to me?

You know why.

Why do you hate me so much?

Look, don’t start. Just drink it and get it over with.

Please, do I have to?

It’s your own fault. Drink it!

But why are you making me do this?

Because every time we go out for a nice meal to make up, you have to have the seafood.
Now drink your Milk of Magnesia.

  1. This was my second prompt. It still makes me chuckle. Mainly because I had forgotten then end.

    Fantastic. Love that last line turning murderer into caring (okay, so maybe slightly slefish) partner. Very cleverly done.

    Oh Dear Elephant – I almost missed this. I am soo very glad you popped over and added this great piece of fiction. I actually know a gent who loves seafood, but is allergic – he takes meds before and after eating it. Really why eat something that will make you sick?

    I adore the twist in the end. And I also laughed out loud. Sometimes when your tummy rumbles you do so feel like you are gonna expire…sooner than later.

    Three cheers!!!

    AnElephant is great with his fiction
    Better than any rhino or giraffe
    What a great twist
    Not easily missed
    And that really gave me a laugh

    Thank you for taking part 😀
