A man sporting spectacles is someplace, police attention some distance away weapons drawn. He talks semi to himself and audibly enough for listeners close enough. He’d bounced up a ting at a rock climbing. Fine presentable woman, they start a good relationship.

From his words it can be determined she gained influence on him, kind of a David Koresh. Two steps later he did stuff he normally would back off from, all for her. Impressively she never asked him personally for cash, a reason why he wasn’t suspicious a lot.

The standoff’s zenith, he titled his head down at her photo in hand, and there is a body in vicinity, with nothing to do on account of dead. It was all for her.

His feet move. Charging officers, cutlass in hand, verbal warning to drop it reach the ears too softly, mind elsewhere.

Police suicide.

‘All for you babe.’

Elsewhere indoors, a news report of the incident runs on television – his girl is performing fellatio on an unknown fella.

When one trick works the first time why not pull an encore with changes? Masterful spider steps lead two men to her web in Bulls and a spider.

Tie up, a Trinidad lingo meaning one with the wrong idea. Any bet her next one?
