My husband handed me a cup of coffee at the table and handed me a newspaper. "Thanks" I said taking the coffee and drinking it. He had a concerned look on his face. "What's wrong?" I asked. Nothing. He said. I had noticed halfway into the paper that a section was missing. But though nothing of it. It was about three pm. Later that day. Hmm that's strange my phone hasn't rang all day. That's not like it my kids usually call me I have a daughter 17 and a boy 23. Both moved out. I think I will call them. "No don't I'm sure they are fine." My husband says. Ok I won't your probably right. The next morning. I get the paper from my husband again and notice a part is missing. "Honey where is the missing piece?"  Oh we uhh didn't get it this morning. We didn't get the front page? I asked. No sorry I will call the news Harold. I watch as my husband grabs the phone and it drops he tries to pick it up and his hand goes through it. "Are you ok" I ask. "Yes" he says back. "Bring me the phone" I say. He tries to grab it and his hand goes through the phone. This time I catch him. "What's wrong with your hand?" Nothing. I get up grab his hand and the phone I put it in his hand and watch as it goes through his hand. "What the" I say. I look at him he has a concerned look on his face. "What's going on and please tell the truth." I say. "Ok fine." He goes to a drawer grabs the newspaper piece that was missing yesterday and today's and he hands me it. I get goosebumps as I read it out loud "local man dies in freak accident" it was my husband. I disconnected the phone as well. I wanted to keep it a secret. But you died how?" A car hit me at the office last week." Wait I've been
Married to a dead man for almost a week?" With that. My husband says "yeah but now I must go. That's why I didn't want to tell you" with that he disappeared.
