The author has placed a warning on this post for violence.

Madeline was an attractive woman. When men in the office asked for a date, her answer was no.

Brian was a handsome new employee who asked Madeline to dinner. She declined and found her car windows smashed.

"How's your car windows?" Brian smirked, the following day, asking for another date.

"No," she said.

Later, she found her cat nailed to a tree.

"How's your cat?" Brian mused, the following morning.

Regrettably, she accepted his next invitation.

Madeline lured drunken Brian into bed and lit a match.

Next day, Brian was wrapped in bandages when Madeline asked, "How was your date?"
