Fit For A King
by Boyd Miles
105 words for VisDare 63: Poison

He had spent a full moon cycle on the planet the residents called “Earth”. Funny how every planet seems to have the same name just a different word for it.

From talking to the residents he found what he was searching for, a gift for his king. Not just any ordinary gift but a living creature. One that all the Earthlings he met had agreed was the most dangerous creature on the planet.

“Your Majesty”, he proclaimed before the royal court, “the most dangerous creature known on the planet called Earth”, as he pulled the drape off a large bottle marked poison, “an Earth woman.”

Dangerous.. But just like most poison also with a sweet lure.. Sci-if works so well.

Goodness me, I'd never thought of myself as that dangerous! However, the disconnect that sometimes arises between men and women can lead to dangerous misunderstandings... :)

Sci-Fi was the perfect setting for this concept. So much behind it, so much to wonder about the woman being presented. Why *her* in particular? Hmmm....
