Bedside Manners

sick husbandJake woke up with severe stomach pain. When he tried to get out of bed he lost his balance, but caught himself by leaning into the nearby dresser. His wife Vicky walked in the bedroom, seen how unsteady he was, and helped him back into bed.

Exhausted, he asked “Fix me another drink, would you, Vicky?”
“Of course, darling,” she replied tenderly.

Vicky returned with the drink, then leaned over Jake and kissed him. Jake grabbed her, tilted her head back for another kiss,
and said,

“ Open wide you, scurvy bitch, this time your drinking the arsenic, laced drink!”


This is part of the M3 Flash in the Pan word challenge.
Challenged word is “scurvy,” with a word limit of 100 words. This one comes in at 100 words.

  12. I love the way you provide us the oh so innocent picture and then let us have it near the end of the flash. You are indeed sneaky. That’s what makes your flash so fascinating.

  13. Revenge is sweet, Deb, but I never realised it could be found at the bottom of a bottle! Good tale, this one! Nice twist!

  14. Ya gotta watch out for those scurvy bitches

  15. NICE! A little bit of scandal in that love scene. Love it!

  16. Hahaha… oh, boy! Drinks and a show! I’m not so sure it sounds like a love connection, though! Very nicely done, Deb – a real ‘stitch’ at the end, there, too!

    • Thanks so much, Sig! I can always count on a nice comment from you!
      You have a great weekend! My best to Annabelle!

  17. You women are cruel. I’ll be sure to bring my own drink to your house

  18. Deb, who would have known you had such a dark side hanging about. Well done!
