“Can I see?” He asked. She passed him the camera and he thumbed through the pictures, quietly deleting select images. “Would you like to go somewhere quieter?” He asked.

She led him upstairs enthusiastically. In the bedroom, her lips parted, she leant into him…and onto the blade. She gasped as a tide of scarlet seeped across her dress.

“I’m sorry, perhaps you were for real, but I can’t take chances.” He said, as he laid her on the bed.
