Simon felt the familiar thrill of anticipation as the man the by door caught his eye. Skilfully keeping up the pretence of flirtatious banter he finished off the cocktails with a flourish and handed them over. ‘There you go, girls.’ He said with a well practised wink that generated a ripple of giggles.

Little did they know that their chosen drinks, the Howling Dog, the Moon and the Creaking Boards made for quite the game of Russian Roulette as one of them contained Rohypnol.

Shortly after, the girls waved their goodbyes and headed out into the night; the man by the door followed close behind. The chase had begun.

    I loved that you used the prompt as cocktails names, instead of the images they represent. Very nicely done! I really like it.

    Very inventive use of the prompt, and very scary too.

    Love the idea of a drink called that! You have really written a dark menacing piece here cloaked in fluff and giggles. Great writing!
