The Necklace

For a change she was quiet. The woman had driven him to bankruptcy with her demands of jewellery in exchange for love. He had been angrier with himself and not her after she left. He had let her take him for a fool.

He hadn’t come intending to hurt her. All he wanted was what he had paid for. Her refusal had been her downfall.

He let the blood drip down the knife’s edge creating a pattern on her neck as it went. Rubies had been her favourite and he thought it justified to adorn her with the red necklace.
