Ravished

a story by Venita Blackburn

He absolutely killed me: ravished.
Their mother loved idioms, coaxed life back into the dead slang of generations past; cool beans, groovy daddy-o, and douche bag all had a place at the table, the breakfast table where she often discussed termite tracks along with her nightly rendezvous. Killed me always meant something wonderful, but ravished was the sisters’ favorite. Ravished.
