    Thank you! I love the use of senses in yours and a great twist in the tale / tail. It put me in mind of this Rammstein video that I love: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrmsJhf89MY

    Barb Does anyone know of a short story where an angel arrives and blows the trumpet of the rapture but after searching for ages finds that all the people are gone. All that's left is a carved stones that says something along the lines of "we waited for you but you never came".

      Mezz Barb, My Mum remembers it vaguely. It may have been a Sunday School story, so a bit watered down. It was basically to do with waiting for the call to rapture or go off and sin and be forever lost. It could be a follow up story to what happened to the non-believers of Noah's ark. Cheery Sundays they were!! Cheery Sunday mornings, haha.

      Daedalus I can't say I do, but it sounds like something from the Ray Bradbury school

    A wonderful comp piece, Barb. Really enjoyed the mix of sea and food and desire, the sensuality of your writing. Very unusual and a perfect last line.

    Ah, the comp combo of food and sex! Nicely interleaved, and being able to follow the recipe is a bonus.
