Plant in place, phone on, camera ready. Mom sent the plant and mom would want proof it arrived, plus she owed her a thanks and a little gratitude. She pressed the button once, then again from a different position, gasping as a body hurtled by the window.

Recognizing the fluttering, cobalt blue robe, she knew in a heart-beat that her well-connected husband had learned about her penthouse affair with Vince. Dropping the phone she shoved some clothes and money into a tote bag before bolting down the stairs and into her future.


  1. So she sent her husband flying? Nice writing.

  2. R. E. Hunter says:

    I think her husband threw her lover off the building. And she might be next! Well done.

  3. zennjennc says:

    Or did her lover throw her husband?

  4. I think Vince is history and I’m wondering whether she’ll be able to escape or not. Thank goodness Mom sent the plant or she wouldn’t even have a chance to escape.

    Have a fabulous Friday,

    Gee, I thought maybe Superman was stopping by to visit.

  6. Joe Owens says:

    I think the robe says that it is the lover that took the concrete penetrating dive. I wonder if she can out run the murderous intent her husband has inside.

  7. That was quite a jolly little piece. I am assuming she gets away!

  8. Now that’s what I call a fly-by-night affair! She’s wise to run. This one made me grin.

  9. elappleby says:

    nice idea – to have a body flying past the window. I enjoyed this one 🙂

  10. Dang, that’s some good reflexes to not freak out when your lover drops by like that.

  11. A lover gone, husband on the hunt. Not god not god at all. Great take.

  12. jwdwrites says:

    I love it! great story. 🙂

  13. billgncs says:

    Aha — another murder story. I am glad she has an escape plan. If she can pin the murder on him she can get the whole estate.

  14. Sarah Ann says:

    Naughty, but nice. I enjoyed the way you took run-of-the-mill actions (para 1) and made them dashed and exciting (para 2).
