Everything about Gwynneth was superb, absolutely superb. Former model, elegant, able to pull together magnificent events with seeming ease. Superb.
Then her world came plummeting about her. She discovered Geoff, her successful and wealthy husband, between Gynneth’s own satin sheets with her middle-aged maid. “It’s not what you think…it won’t happen again…I swear this is the first time I have ever…”
But “it” did happen many times, each time with Geoff plying lie after lie.
At the final time, Gwynneth threw his expensive collection of exquisite art at Geoff, as he tried to bluster his way from her rage. Holding Geoff’s favorite Rodin bronze and venting her anger, Gwynneth brought it crashing down on his head. It was a glancing blow that knocked him cold.
Gwynneth made her decision quickly—faster than a lie from her cheating husband.
When Geoff came to consciousness, he saw two pair of glittering eyes looking down at him: His recently disenfranchised business partner, Joe, and Gwynneth. “You spurious bastard!” Joe snarled. “You stole everything from me!
Gwynneth purred in her nasal Texas twang as she tugged on the chains around Geoff’s ankles. “You won’t lie your way out of this one!”
Together Joe and Gynneth released the hold on the heavy chains, sending a screaming Geoff to his watery death.
Geoff now lies for eternity.
