The rain fell violently on the night of
February 24, 2013. A dinner party was being
held at the home of an eccentric man,
Captain Relish.
Captain Relish, a mysterious person, was just
released from prison and possesses a new
name. He decided to have a celebration
party with people he considered
7:00 p.m.
Captain Relish escorted Norma Nanny,
Theresa Thyme, Fred Fleckstone, Sam
Stubs and Glen Glendora to the dinner
table. Although the guests didn’t know
it, each one’s life was somehow affected
by Captain Relish.
7:30 p.m.
The host and guests sat down to a dinner
of tomato soup, fresh garden salad, prime
rib, baked potato, and small talk.
7:35 p.m.
The lights of the house suddenly went
out. Chairs rustled, people screamed
and Captain Relish groaned loudly.
7:36 p.m.
The lights turned on to show Captain
Relish slumped forward, his face in his
tomato soup and a large steak knife in the
back of his neck.
