The newlyweds strolled down the street hand in hand, then arm in arm, and eventually arms around one another- his hand resting on her shoulder, hers hugging his waist. In the distant intersection ahead a shapely redhead crossed the otherwise deserted street.

“I’d like to see if her carpet matches the drapes,” said the groom.

“Don’t forget your vows,” his bride replied as her hand dropped to playfully pinch his ass. His hand left her shoulder to caress her cheek, then tickled her ear. She giggled. He then grasped her firmly under her chin and twisted her head to one side and backwards as he forced her body forward with one knee. He felt more than heard her spine snap, and let go. She may have retained consciousness long enough to feel the pain as her face struck the sidewalk- he hoped so.

“Until death do us part?” he inquired of her corpse.

He jogged to the intersection and turned the corner.

“Excuse me miss, but don’t I know you from somewhere?”

Soos- annulled no doubt... love your strange proclivities. Basically wanted to say high and let you know I forever find you amusing, at least... did you need to tempt me so?

Drop-Dead Gorgeous?
Recent and not so recent events- such as senseless (as opposed to sensible?) murders, the cluenessless of spouses to the murderous intent of their betrothed, runaway brides and subsequent lawsuits, a famous formerly fat model eloping with the purported but disputed father of her newborn son in the unacknowledged wake of the death of her adult son, as well as events more near and dear... I could go on, but I think I just did- led me to consider how well one person may know another, or even oneself.

Thanks for reading and way more for commenting.

That'll show 'em
Man, really weird twist here, but great flash fiction. It kind of reminded me of a TV commercial. I really like the line "see if her carpet matches her drapes", that is really original (or I'm way out of touch).
