Happy Valentine, by Gordon Lawrie

(F.F.F. Website Story)

What you’re looking at there is a nice pink rose lying on that book, a rose especially for you. Like any old-style rose, it’s full of prickly thorns, but despite the temptation, I didn’t put poison on any of them.

No, it’s an old rose, so please feel free to take the rose up and smell its perfume. What will then happen is that the book – that innocent old book that’s underneath it – will shut suddenly. It’ll close suddenly enough to set off a detonator, which in turn will detonate an explosive charge, small but strong enough.

Happy Valentine …
