“My lord, please, ask her who was she dreaming about?” asked the lawyer grimly in an authoritarian voice.
She felt weak in the knees as if someone poured buckets of molten lava in her ears.
She stuttered looking downcast, red in the face.
” SAY IT!!”
The lawyer glowered at her.
Not that she was totally oblivious to life’s oddities but today she entirely failed to handle the situation. Discombobulated she looked above and made a prayer — Please God, send me a stand-in.
Her head hung in shame, the confession was just a vague murmur.
Years of friends were torn asunder in the blink of an eye. Who could forgive her for such a grave infraction?
Beaming, the lawyer stroked his hair with his fingers, winked at her friend who hid a sneer behind her dark lipstick. She hugged her jacket tightly in her arms. Her heart writhing with grief she shot a reproachful glance at the sinner, grabbed her purse propped on her thighs and followed the crowd.
Unexpectedly she took out a pistol from her purse and…Bam!
