The falling snow deadened all sound and made

  • The falling snow deadened all sound and made the silence softer. In the garden, a magpie swooped down and picked up a dead mouse the cat had left on the path. In my warm bed I lay

  • and wondered about the girl who was staring though my window. She was barefoot and seemed unaware of the cold. She scrapped her finger across the frosted pane. A heart?

  • And just like that, she was gone.I ran outside into the glistening silent night. Nothing.The next morning, however, the frosted heart appeared on my window. "Tonight" it said.

  • The message turned my spine to ice. What could "tonight" mean? What was this mysterious, cold hearted woman planning? To be on the safe side, I bought a shotgun, wine and cheese.

  • It was romantic as hell. We started with appetizers and finished with a duel. She wasn't wearing any underwear. Neither was I.

  • But I had my reasons. Each hair follicle hitting the spandex was like a knife stabbing into my pelvis. Some unknown condition, my spymaster had overlooked it at my physical, inst

  • -ead of instructing me to apply warm compresses and gently pull out the ingrown pubic hairs one by one, the sadist. So here I was about to perform my high-wire act with irritating

  • chafing. The Spandex pants amplified the friction on my red, raw skin and brought me close to tears. But the show must go on. I clambered up the ladder, wincing with each step, and

  • made it to the acrobatics platform. My good for nothing partner - on the other end of the tent across an impossible chasm - looked especially unreliable tonight. The music started

  • & ended as a single gunshot shattered the pause it left in the audience's breath. I'd been shot. I fell. As I fell I considered how this damned net hadn't save me after all.

    Guns & romance don't mix.

    Astonishing story, I think. Neat how bunnycookies picked up on the Spandex factor.

    Thanks Woab! I was tossing up between Spandex v Lycra - just a lucky guess in the end!
