The teakwood tables were neatly arranged.
The stars did not twinkle that night.
The forks, knives, spoons lay motionless.
The Bordeaux lay still in the glass.
But there was some noise.

He garnished the brown sauce over the meaty red below.
Hush… usually Mr.Lecter, likes to have his dinner quietly.
Gyanban Thoughts - Inspired by Dr.Hannibal Lecter of Silence of the Lambs fame.!The focus is on the quietness of it all,the silence of it all,and the underlying,or dying in this case, noises in the barbecue pit.What makes it more chilling, if you notice, the story is being narrated by a third person - who is being made to watch this macabre episode, knowing fully well, it could well be his turn next to be in the barbecue sauce.!
