100 Words – Alley

They were a boring couple and they knew it. Routine ruled their lives. Sex was the same. They tried role-playing, meeting as strangers, but they knew it was them. So he planned a surprise. Sent her an anonymous invitation that she knew was his.

At the end of the alley was a dive bar filled with thugs and poets. He waited in the dark. There she was. He grabbed her and kissed her. She kissed back with a passion he’d never expected. Then felt the cold knife puncture his lung. Ten minutes later his wife found him. Bled to death.
