Fish Tale

by Andrew Atkinson
Originally published by on 14/11/2018

Annabel had not eaten fish for three years after nearly choking to death on an unfilleted trout. It was time to face her nemesis.

She stared at the solitary fish finger on her plate and then nibbled a morsel without gagging or fainting. Soon, the plate was empty and her thoughts turned to future meals, perhaps involving sea bass or bream.

Annabel was dead on arrival at hospital. A paramedic from the ambulance was chatting at A&E reception.

“Looks like she was heading towards the washing-up bowl but stumbled and fell. It was a fish knife that killed her.'
