The lady, a beauty beyond words, stood before the judge and as incredible as it seemed she was charged with her husband’s murder.
The gravitas of her situation seemed to be lost on her even though she had been caught with a kilo of ratsbane in her possession.
It was true her husband had made pit fiend promises, designed to be twisted any which way and usually in his favour. He prided himself on bribing the bellman by ripping her off at every opportunity.
For a long time she thought of him as an asset in their relationship but when he disappeared one time over the horizon with a blurry promise to bring back riches undreamed of, which in the end turned out to be a beautiful Tahitian beauty call, Roma, she quickly developed a well-earned aversion to his lies and trickery.
The margin of her tolerance diminished even when the courts ordered him to stay well away from her he couldn’t help himself but test those boundaries.
It was little wonder she discovered ratsbane as an ideal condiment to go with his sausage and mash.
