My Wife

Horror / Mystery

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.”

Ginger: I like the idea behind this; the idea and story itself are great, However, I'm finding typos periodically and some of the sentences could be worded a bit more clearly. You might want to 'show' a little more than you 'tell,'

SeanSavage: Good plot that moves fairly quickly. Time passage somewhat vague. but not indecipherable. Very good syntax, grammar and punctuation. The story flowed very well, however, the breaks between chapters and the time jumps tended to be slightly confusing at first. I could see where the author was going...

DarkWolf .12: Very interesting plot! Had me up for the entire night. Keep up the good work 👍

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me.
