No one ever saw it coming. Lihua 李桦 would lure young men into her townhouse on Nanchang lu, entertain them with her stories of travel and dazzle them with her independence. They would stay awake for hours, smoking the finest cigarettes and drinking the finest of her tinctures amongst her numerous worldly possessions. As the clock struck midnight, she would tempt them into her bedroom by slyly slipping off the strap of dress, letting it hang loosely over her bare white shoulders. As she led them into her bed-chamber with her come-hither demeanor, she would lay them on her silk crimson bed and watch as they succumbed to her last lethal, saccharine kiss. Through the slow addition of mercury-laden vermilion dust throughout the evening to her suitor’s libations, the ‘black widow’ had won again. She would gaze upon her victim as the life slowly drained from their wet eyes, whispering in their ear one last time. Now the souls of her dearly departed, flit about like winged ghosts above her murderous Vermilion vase, another treasure for her collection. [Margaret Johnson]
