Late for Brunch

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

The ladies were having their weekly Sunday brunch.  Sadie had brought the pitcher of iced tea out to the table and Marcie was right behind her with a tray of glasses. Veronica was busy making finger sandwiches in the kitchen.

Usually there were four of them having brunch each week. The girls worried a little about Ruth, but they had a lot to do to finish setting up the food and drink. Ruth didn’t drink the iced tea. She always had a mixed drink. Marcie started to mix Ruth’s drink once she was done her part in the set-up.

Ruth was still not here. Now the women were getting really concerned.

There was a bang against the front door. It wasn’t a knock exactly just a bang. When Marcie opened the door, Ruth fell into the room gasping. Sadie called 9-1-1. Marcie noticed a rock and wondered what it was. Did someone hit Ruth with it?

The EMT’s arrived quickly and started to work on her. Before they could get her loaded onto their gurney Ruth took her last breath. She never said a word.

    Enjoyed!! Not a great neighborhood for these seemingly rather classy ladies… A rock as a murder weapon of choice? I wonder if one of the ladies are going to end up being involved???? Fun read!
