My husband and I are fighting for our lives in the hospital after a terrible car accident. But despite my pain, all I can think about is what our families will find behind our front door. The scarf that has been all over the news, belonging to a dead young woman with honey-colored hair. I have to speak to the police before my husband can…
I’m drifting in and out of consciousness, but when I hear my wife talking to the police, accusing me of the murder of an innocent woman, a cold fear grips me. I know I’ve got a temper. That I’ve not always been faithful. Will they think I killed her?
I think of my wife’s jealous streak, of the lies she’s told our loved ones. But if I tell the whole truth, they’ll look into her past. And that will destroy me, too…
At the window, I stand staring out into the near darkness. The weather has been awful today, even by November’s bleak standards. We had torrential rain earlier, and now, a blanket of low, grey sky that feels increasingly oppressive.
