Sparkling Victory


She was surprised when he welcomed her with a smile. He clearly had forgotten about the argument they had had in the morning, regarding her affair. He asked her to make a cup of tea and she gladly obliged. She turned the gas on and was soon engulfed in flames as he watched her burn from outside with a victorious grin. 

It had all started and ended with a spark.

  2. . . .he grinned and walked in to the kitchen, and hugged the fire ball. He whispered into her ear, "I love you, you shouldn't have to be fall for somebody else." She listened and realized how protective a man could be, as both of them evaporate for the world of "NO BETRAYAL" ...

  9. Oh man, psycho!! The thing about these crisp stories is that you don't know the background and so you are forced to call these men psychos. That's why I prefer longer versions. Just saying!

    1. Seriously! I so agree with this. Short versions always remain incomplete and I try to put out the most complex ending possible. Still, somehow I am never satisfied with limited words and sentences.

  11. This guy, he knew how accidents can be doctored. Very calculated person, but she must have been suffering from cold or something to not smell the gas, right? ;-)

    1. Haha, maybe he did not! And maybe she was suffering from cold too. Or maybe the shock of her smiling husband blurred out her sense of smell. Still a possibility right? :P
