Finish the story begins with: “As the year wound down to a close, they gathered around the table and raised their glasses.”


2014-12-22 - BW Beacham

As the year wound down to a close, they gathered around the table and raised their glasses. Everyone except their host Bill.

The aftermath of this party would make him one of the most famous killers of all time. Seven at once! He could see the headlines now. “Seven people poisoned at holiday party in local mansion.”

He knew he was insane. Hell, he had the papers to prove it! His little party would be the culmination of his perfect little insane storm. They all had screwed him in some manner.

There was his wife Susan. Eighteen years of pure hell putting up with her. That would end soon.

Childhood friends, Mark, Jason, Andrew, and Sam. Friends who had become business partners and then ousted him from the company they had formed.

And finally Beth and Howard the neighbors from Hell.

“Drink up my friends,” he yelled over their laughter.

And they did.

  1. Danny, Looks like his evil plan worked, but does he now have to hide the bodies? That will be difficult. Good and well-written story. He may go to a mental institution though if it’s ruled insanity. Happy Holidays! 🙂 — Suzanne


  2. This is great DJ. The concept of insanity leads us to accept anything your protagonist may get up to. I did connect with the wife comment though even though I wouldn’t go to his extreme.
