Wordle #222 – A Passionate Crime

Please visit, https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2021/01/11/wordle-222/ for the original challenge 🙂

Here is my submission:

The prolixity of my debut novel may seem daunting to the daily reader, but there were so many details I couldn’t fathom leaving out. Here’s a snippet, just to draw you in…

His heavy stumble tossed him into the branches of her outstretched arms. Should’ve refrained from those last two tequila shots, he thought as his hands landed around her throat. He began to squeeze. Why? He awoke the next day, asking himself the same question. He just wanted to touch her. 

As his grip tightened, her eyes turned the shade of wild strawberries, while his were procellous. She was haughty when they first met, which irked him so. But he didn’t realize how much it bothered him until she attempted her final gasp at breath. Instead of letting go, he squeezed tighter until her face turned blue and she collapsed. It took only seconds.

The next morning, he found her on the floor of his hotel room, lifeless. He stripped off her frayed kimono and stared in disbelief at how much she resembled his mother.
