To break away from pressures of mundane life, a visit to the flower show was proposed.
Aroma of sweet smelling flowers, melange of colours dancing to the beats of wind soothed his nerves.
Having their botanical and colloquial names pinned excited him, he was learning something new.
Suddenly he slowed his gait.
Were these the same flowers he’d gifted his unsuspecting wife and lured her to smell? Indeed! the plant was in a glass container with,
“Do not come into contact, Fatal” sign.
He better hurry away from the spot before his past caught up with him.
