And the words:

“Provided she did exactly as instructed, she should be able to get it right.” – Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death – MC Beaton


The audience was sitting at the edge of their seats. The show was to start in a little less than a minute. The big screen showed the countdown in seconds. Jennifer was a bit anxious as the ticket she had received had a note attached to it telling her that, Provided she did exactly as instructed, she should be able to get it right. The note was anonymous and she thought it was from Jack, her co-worker who had showed signs of wanting to have a deeper relationship then friendship. But there was no sign of him. She was following the instructions in the note, sitting here with an umbrella and a packed lunch in her basket. Suddenly the screen came to life with a loud bang and an explosion of bright colors. Then unexpectedly there was a shower of colored confetti from the ceiling of the theater which were dipped in some strong smelling liquid. She opened her umbrella and sat waiting for what was coming next. The next event was another pleasant surprise. Jack came and sat on the seat next to her. “How are you enjoying your 3D theatre experience?” He asked her with a grin.
