A Recipe for Pasta Sauce
"Oh, come in, come in!" Aey exclaimed, motioning in the beautiful young woman standing just outside her front door. "You're a bit early, but that's fine. Dinner won't be ready for a while, though."
"I know I'm early, sorry." Bea replied. "But I've been looking forward to tonight so much, I just couldn't help myself. I hope it's not a bother."
"No bother at all." Aey said, smiling reassuringly at her date and patting her on the arm. "In fact, this will work out just fine. You can help me prepare dinner, if you like."
"That sounds fun." Bea replied, returning Aey's smile. "What are we having? You wouldn't tell me over the phone."
"Oh, just some pasta and buttery garlic bread." Aey said.
"Ah.. I see.." said Bea, her smile fading slightly. "I thought you said it was going to be something special..?"
"Oh, it will be." Aey replied, with a light, unconcerned laugh.
"The sauce is what is going to make it special." she continued, giving her companion a sly little wink. "Follow me."
Aey lead Bea through her house, which was a modern place with few walls. Each room, such as they were, was open and easily visible from most of the rest of the house, creating a bright, airy atmosphere throughout the entire interior. The kitchen, large and contiguous with the dining room, was set against one outside wall, and was where their short journey came to a halt.
"Who's that?" Bea asked, her surprise easily evident from the set of her features as she took in the sight of a third person already in the kitchen.
The person she was referring to was a nude man, fairly large and well built, who was bound to an "X" shaped frame. The sturdy frame was set into rails attached securely to the floor and ceiling of the kitchen.
"He's dinner." Aey said, her tone both pleased and satisfied.
"Dinner?" Bea said.
"Well, part of dinner, anyway." Aey amended. "I picked him up at the market earlier today. He's what's going to make our sauce so special."
"How's he going to do that?"
"Well, the secret to making great pasta is making great sauce, and you can only make great sauce if you have the proper ingredients." Aey said, as she lead Bea around the trussed and gagged man to his front side.
