adashofsunny Prompt Nights – Truth is stranger than Fiction


“Excuse me”, I said, “I’m looking for a book”.

She looked up, raised her left eyebrow,

looked at me over the top of her glasses,

and said, “you’re in the right place, this is a library”.

“Untraceable Poisons.”

She grinned, “You planning to kill your wife?

“No,” I said. “Her boyfriend” and winked.
