A Fine Romance, by Gordon Lawrie

The evening was going well.

They’d met through http://www.findmyperfectmate.com; now they sat in a city-centre cafe. Mark called Shelley ‘brainy’, but he was pretty intelligent himself.

They shared many interests – books, music, and unusual foods – kidney, liver and – remarkably – sweetbreads. The evening flew by.

She considered inviting Mark to her flat, but decided that it was too soon. Instead – to his disappointment – she settled for a shop-doorway lingering kiss.

Suddenly, he pulled away. “Have you ever experienced a Norwegian kiss?”

“No. Go on.” She closed her eyes expectantly.

Her body was discovered next day, minus all of its internal organs.
