The party erupted in laughter as he set it back down and promptly passed out. His cheek fell on my shoulder, and he did not stir when I shoved him to the other side of the sofa.

It was a game, and a bet, and a dare. We were all playing. Each of us had a colorful drink in hand, and when someone took a sip, we toasted their health. Fourteen of the twenty-one glasses were safe, but the poison was odorless, colorless, tasteless.

And now it was my turn.

  1. Deadly party games! I had thought the first guy had just passed out from drinking one too many; this would not be the kind of game most would want to play….but my guess is that’s the point of this story 😉 Always more to tell — wonderfully intriguing start. Thank you for joining us this week 🙂
