Shrilling Red

With tingles, she heard the gravel crunching underfoot and nothing else. Time to ride away now, tuck in the heavy black accessory. His face was smeared with red. Good. She smiled, pulling out her lipstick and put on another smooth coat: lighter than the crimson that marred his temple.

oooooo, a flash fic! I like it, but the murder is almost a second guess when you read it--I see the "crimson that marred his temple" as a kiss leaving the print of her lips before I see the bullet wound pouring blood. Is that what you were going for?
