She gave away the truth in front of the entire audience. This, she thought was the best way to unveil the mask of fake chivalry he manifested, since it was only she, who knew his verity. She could sense that he was fuming with anger, but, by now, the chaos within the auditorium was reduced to an unusual reticence. He never thought anyone would have the valour to speak against him. After all, he was the dean.
Tonight, she kept serving herself the Negroni just to get back her appetite she lost after the first time he had molested her.
P. S – Negroni is a cocktail made of one part gin, one part vermouth rosso (red, semi-sweet), and one part Campari, garnished with orange peel. It is considered an aperitif. While the drink’s origins are unknown, the most widely reported account is that it was first mixed in Florence, Italy, in 1919, at Caffè Casoni (formerly Caffè Giacosa), located on Via de’ Tornabuoni and now called Caffè Roberto Cavalli. Count Camillo Negroni concocted it by asking the bartender, Fosco Scarselli, to strengthen his favorite cocktail, the Americano, by adding gin rather than the normal soda water. The bartender also added an orange garnish rather than the typical lemon garnish of the Americano to signify that it was a different drink.
