This week’s story is a continuation of Angelique’s story, more of which can be found here.
Today’s photo prompt comes to us from Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
Oh, Be Careful, Little Heart
Out of The Gallery’s warmth and into Main Street’s chill, Angelique followed the lovers. Under sparkling Christmas lights, the woman smiled at the man while Angelique wondered when the drug he had slipped into her champagne would take effect.
He stopped before a bright red door, turned a key in the brass lock, and led her up a narrow staircase. Silently, resolutely, Angelique climbed the steps, her gaze fixed on the woman’s adoring face.
Soon her rapture would turn to horror. She would be helpless to defend herself, and Angelique could only hold her hand and pray a swift end.
Edited to Add: For an alternate, in excess of one hundred words take on the prompt that sheds a little more light on Angelique’s character, see Christmas Reflections.
