He called her before the jump. “Sweetheart, I am ready to take the leap. This should call for a celebration on my return. Wish you were here.” He exclaimed excitedly. “I wish I could behold the sight of your accomplishment but for this unplanned meeting. Anyway, best wishes honey.” She kissed him goodbye and never answered the phone that kept ringing for hours. How could she? She was down with excess of 15 shots of Astro- pop and hungover. She knew no other way to get off with the crime.
She had complete knowledge about the tear in his parachute.
P. S – Astro pop is a layered cocktail, mixed drink or shooter so named because it resembles the Astro Pop lollipop candy brand. An astro pop may be served as a cocktail, mixed drink or shooter. Several recipes exist. Alcoholic beverages used in the drink’s preparation can include vodka, raspberry vodka, blueberry vodka, Prosecco (an Italian sparkling white wine), blue curaçao liqueur, Crème de banane and melon liqueur.
I have signed up for Blogging From A-Z Challenge- April 2017. I would be writing 100 words fiction this A-Z season. My fiction pieces will be twisted around various cocktails.

Nice twist. I’m guessing he deserved what he got? Or is she a cruel negative character with no remorse? So many questions! But since she couldn’t do it while sober, I think there’s some remorse. Yes?
Vexation suppressed for too long leads one to take extreme steps in life sometimes, even if it needs to end up being fatal. And yes of course, the remorse exists.
