Welcome once more to Friday Fictioneers. Here is this week’s piece, I struggled with this one and I think it shows. After enlarging the image I got the idea that it was a jewellery store (hope my American friends can forgive the British English spellings!) Feel free to comment and I will do my best to reply promptly! Thanks for reading.

The Last Supper (100 words)
Lucy took the crumpled receipt from her purse and read it again. Rutter’s Jewellers $3995.
Before today she had suspected, but now she knew for certain. Richard was a cheat; the fool had left the receipt in his pocket.
She stopped at the store to pick up the rat poison, before returning home to cook him his final meal.
Richard couldn’t wait to give Lucy the necklace. After this, she’ll know just how much I love her, he thought, opening the front door. The delicious smell of his favourite stew welcomed him home. Maybe It will wait until after dinner.
