55 Flash Fiction - A Perfect 10

Her Beauty overwhelmed him, the curves of her face, the fullness of her lips, her ample bosom, thin waist, hips made for childbearing. Young and single, slightly reckless, she was thoroughly what every man wanted, his ideal spouse.
A perfect 10.

He thought out loud, "Well, my dear, its time for your embalming to proceed."

LW,
A complete story in 55 words. Its fiction, what can I say?

Akelamalu,
Thanks, I'll be by later to read yours.

S E E Quine,
UGH! Yeah, I say it. I started doing the last line hidden due to Mona, spoiling her reading of the story.

G,
OMG, I so don't like the reference to Stephen King, since I'm not a fan of his stuff, but I forgive you. You have a great one. :D

Thanks for not letting me spoil my reading for myself! :D I think the click below for full read Idea was great after all! It really does work like having to turn a page & really enjoy reading.

Btwn, Last time was accidental actually! My eyes just 'fell upon' the last line!

Snow,
Sorry about its being creepy, I was thinking more of how life can be such a waste. It takes little for that to happen, sometimes not even the victim's negligence. Sometimes its just an accident by being in the wrong place at the wrong split second. Thanks, that you thought it cool.

Lime,
I suppose it could be.

Mona,
You're welcome for the protection. I don't mean to accuse you of anything, after all it seems everyone thinks its cool that the last line is now hidden. ;)

Oops, I missed you when I made the rounds on Friday/Saturday. I'm glad I checked back. This 55 reminds me of this recurring daymare (like a nightmare, but occurring in my daydreams) I had as a young person. I often imagined that the romantics could be right about there being one perfect mate for each of us, and what would result if something happened to prevent the pair from meeting. Death is Something.

S E E Quine,
Yes, as a matter of fact, how can a guy not remember that?

Smarty,
There must be some reason that some people stay single. Of course, if that's the case, what is the war in the Mid East doing to so many?

Sheesh I cannot believe I finally got over here. That is a great 55 with a terrific twist.

Sorry I'm late! That was just terrific and I also love the click through finale!

Phew! here at last.
A perfect 10 eh!, is there such a thing? Very clever 55 Charles, love it when there is a twist at the end.

Queenie,
I imagine that there are lots of perfect 10s, after all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and there's a lot of different eyes out there. The point is that so many people needlessly die, and its such a waste.

Hm? *Checks calendar* October 31 is still a long way off, Charles! :D

NGAC,
This isn't a Halloween post. This kind of thing could (and probably does) happen throughout the year. Traffic accidents, drug interactions, violence, allergies, disease, medical malpractice, all sorts of things happen that can take the best and brightest or any other, for that matter.
