Writing prompt:Kiss, Kill
I need prompts for M, S, X and Y still….
A smoke-filled room, strings playing in the background, whisky-soaked breaths–not my scene, not really. But Earl has dragged me out, and in a way I am glad he has. In my bathroom, I have a razor ready. His call made me postpone my plans. Not tonight. Let’s give life another chance.
So here I am, a bald, towering fifty-year-old on a bar-stool, a woman draped around each arm, puckering up for a kiss each. Earl must have taken care of them. They do not look easy, just pretty and blonde in a girl-next-door kind of way. They are slurring over who could have me for the night. No kidding.
“I’d kill for those ladies, bud,” someone yells at me from the back of the room. Not Earl. Come to think of it, where is Earl?
No matter. I’ll follow the ladies to some good time.
Outside, the air hits me in the gut. I cough, as if stepping into a smoke-filled room, and not the other way around.
“Which one first?” the one on my right arm smiles, raising her eyebrows, trying too hard.
“Kiss or Kill?” I smile back at her.
Not in the least, as it turns out.
Minutes later, I dump the two in my trunk. It is getting boring, how easy this is, how long I’ve been getting away with it. And I still don’t feel a thing.
Now for Earl. He knows me, knew I was with the girls.
Or, maybe not. The razor is the best destination, after all.
I think I’m going back home.
