As the radio played out a commercial in the background,the last few words caught Jovan's attention - ''Here's your cance to change your black and white life into a new color"
'The milkshake is done -It’s a secret recepie darling in the spirit of spring -I am sure you'll love it.’
Lisa handed out the Orange and white concoction to Jovan sitting on the dining table.
The generous mix of the two distinct colors ,yet different destinies ,bore testimony to the fifty two stabs on Jovans chest.The milkshake and blood mix plastered the walls and painted the floor. Five years and a bitter trial later,Mrs.Lisa Raymond was convicted for murder of Mr.Jovan Raymond.
As the judge announced the verdict,she sat down in the witness box quietly, no emotion, no gesture.
‘We will appeal against the sentence or even force a retrial’the lawyer comforted.
But deep inside Lisa was enjoying every bit of limelight especially after being kept in the dark for fourteen years.
Life is not so black and white after all.
Gyanban thoughts - this story is loosely based on the infamous Kissel murder early 2003 in Hong Kong.The theme Black and white seemed to fit in well considering the apparent and the oblivious nature of the crime and verdict.The trial was about a woman who allegedly killerd her husband after sedating him with a spiked milkshake.It was brutal,it was dark and what amazed people was how a petit frail woman managed to kill a man almost twice her size.While the story on the other side was of an abused housewife of a rich corporate honcho who live in a secluded hell under the eyewash of being a perfect couple.The jury is out.
