A Lady in Red

A Story

By Mother CombsPublished about a month ago 1 min read
Top Story - April 2024

Beware! Beware! Heed my tale! Don’t let the same fate befall you as those who fell before you. Don’t make the same mistake as those who have fallen for her. Beware! Beware!

She comes for one and all, strutting her stuff, flaunting her gifts, fluttering her lashes, and sashaying those hips. Like a predator, she lures her prey out to her, then strikes and takes them down. She’s a lion, a shark, a wolf, a polar bear, and a hunter-spider rolled into one. She’s the most dangerous predator ever to walk the face of this Earth.

Those who fall for her are crushed, beaten, tread on, and chewed up, then spit out. They are left so spent and useless. A wasted husk of a man is what she leaves.

So heed my warning! Beware the Lady in Red! She will make you wish you were dead! You will begin to dread each new day, praying she never returns, praying she returns to you soon, though. For once you taste the poison of her lips, you will hopelessly, helplessly belong to her for all eternity.

    Ohh, does this have a mythical counterpart? Sounds almost like a Fox Spirit. Red is quite the fitting color for such a dangerous lady who has much passion and taste for blood. I'm afraid, your cautionary tale might only embolden the youths haha.

    Hehehehhhhh, reminds me of this meme where the caption reads, "That, right there, is one of this world's most dangerous, vicious, animals. Known for leaving a path of destruction in its wake, leaving rippling effects through all of mankind. Oh, and that thing next to it is a kangaroo."

    Congrats on TS!

    first, congratulations on TS. This was excellent and brought out a warning that "clothes are always a distraction to lies beneath." I knew a young woman who loved to wear red. Honestly? The color looked good on her but it clouded her personality. My son's friend was clouded by the red ... fell for her and she ended up ruining his career. ... not everyone can wear red, and not everyone should. GREAT story!!

    Reminds me of the song, " Lady in Red" although she wasn't portrayed as a potential psychopath, lol. Where do you come up with this stuff? What's in your pancake syrup over there?
