Calling Card

They’d spattered crimson on the piano, but she was playing, indifferent, when he returned with their lily.

“You play?”

She unfurled a minor chord. “It’s relaxing.”

He knelt, avoiding the blood, and wrapped the dead fingers around the lily’s stem.

They were gone before the chord died away.

  1. The cool headedness of your characters is chilling. The way they carried on so matter-of-factly reinforced the horror of scenario. I did get a little confused about the at points, and I wasn’t always sure who “she” and “they” were.

  2. I get the impression this isn’t the first time they’ve done this. It has the makings of a nice little psychological thriller.
