My Wife

Mystery / Horror

Short Story

“Honey I’m home,” I yelled putting my briefcase on the dining room table.

Nothing but silence.

“Laura?” I said confused walking up the stairs, feeling very exhausted.

It has been a very long day. Don’t ask.

I was about to call my wife’s name again when I heard a faint voice saying, “I’m in the shower.”

With a sign of relief I began taking my tie off.

All I want to do is change into my pajamas and sit on my favorite couch and watch the football game.

As I made my way to the bedroom I heard the water running. I walked in the bedroom and began undressing.

“You will not believe the kind of day I had.”

I told her all about it. Then the sound of the doorbell interrupted.

Who could that be this late at night?

“Can you get that,” my wife uttered.

I ran back downstairs and I opened the door. I was greeted by a police officer.

“Can I help you?” I said, confused.

“Are you Todd Mcguire?”

“Yes”

“There has been an accident with your wife..” He began to say, “Your wife has been hit by a drunk driver.”

He paused for a few seconds with a little sadness in his eyes.

“I’m so sorry.. she died instantly.”

Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

Karl12: This is a very unusual sci-fi mystery. I enjoyed the suspense which was present throughout the story. I loved how I never knew what to expect from the characters. This made the story thrilling and made me suspicious of everything and everyone. You have a great style of writing – one which captiva...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

Cat32: I enjoyed the good versus evil aspect of this novel, especially as the protagonist has to discover how to access that good to save his family. I sat down to begin reading this story, and only put it down long enough to eat with the family! the book does an excellent job of building the suspense, ...

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.

Pille: This has been a bit different genre from what I usually read but a real delight. I like the vamps being different from cliche. I like the intriguing and unpredictable plot and the quirky characters. The only complaint I have is that I want to read more but the book run out. I hope there's going t...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!
