Prom Nights from Hell Chapter One Kiss and Tell

Kiss and Tell

Michele Jaffe

Chapter One

“Sorry this wasn’t more of a storybook ending,” the man with his hands around her throat said, smiling, holding her eyes with his own as he choked her.

“If you’re going to kill me, can’t you just get on with it? This is kind of uncomfortable.”

“What, my hands? Or the feeling that you’re a failure-”

“I’m not a failure.”

” – again.”

She spit in his face.

“Still got some fire. I really admire that about you. I think you and I could have gotten along nicely. Unfortunately, there just isn’t time.”

She gave one last fight, clawing at his hands around her throat, his forearms, anything, but he didn’t even flinch. Her fists fell hopelessly to her sides.

He leaned in so close to her face that she could feel him exhale. “Any last words?”

“Three: Listerine breath strips. You really need them.”

He laughed and tightened the hands around her neck until they overlapped. “Good-bye.”

For a second, his eyes burned into hers. Then she heard a sharp crack and felt herself fall to the floor as everything went black.
