Friday Fictioneers – 30th August 2013 – The Last Supper

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.
