If you’ve been following this series since the beginning, then you know I opened it with a scene that left you (and even me) with a lot of questions. Since then, the story has slowly started to come together as I’ve picked up the pieces of the puzzle that led to that infamous shower scene (B through S). Now we’re back at the beginning, continuing where “A is for Accessory to Murder” left off…
I don’t respond. Am I safer with him on the other side of this shower curtain?
Then I see Mel, a shadow of her former self, alive but not, inviting me to taste her…
This is far less gruesome.
Suddenly the curtain is ripped back, the rails screeching like nails against metal in agony. I slip and reach for anything to break my fall. He snatches up my arms, puts them at my sides, looks me over, spins me around.
“What the hell—”
“I’m making sure you haven’t been bitten or scratched.”
But I already know the answer.
Today’s tag was a bit of a stretch: “til death do us part.”
Stay tuned for “U” tomorrow!
