Old Al’s Poison: FFftPP-2017: Week #16



WEEK #16


Old Al’s Poison

“What’s your poison?” Ned winked at the pretty young thing attached to old man Dulcimer’s arm.

“My usual. And a gin and tonic for my date.”

“New here?”

The gorgeous brunette returned his wink. “Just in town. Al stumbled upon me having car trouble. He was so kind. He gave me a lift.”

“Aren’t you the lucky one?” Ned winked again.

“Yes, I am,” Al replied seductively as the brunette eased into his arms.

“Just a minute, Aconiti. The little boy’s room,” beamed a red-faced Al.

“It’s been a perfect plan, Sis. Wolfsbane ala rum,” toasted Ned. “Old Al’s clueless.”
