Jessica Silver—is a murderer! But… nobody knew this (yet). That morning, Jessica had already packed her bags. She knew she’d never return to this house again. The house she’s shared with her husband for the past seven years. This was her love nest. Jessica was madly in love with Mr. Silver and she thought he felt the same way. Jessica is a sophisticated woman married to one of New York’s most prominent and wealthy attorneys. She lived the glam life in all of her glory. Mr. Silver doted on her and gave her anything she’d ask for, just as long as she was content.

Jessica wore a beautiful black dress tightly molded to her hourglass figure as she made her way to the bank. It was 9:03 A.M. on a bright Wednesday. As she sat with the personal banker, she demanded to withdraw a lump sum of money. The Finance advisor was very shocked upon hearing the amount that Jessica wished to withdraw from a joint account she shared with her husband; David Silver.

“Mrs. Silver, I do apologize for asking but this is a lot of money you wish to withdraw without Mr. Silver’s consent”, the old man spoke as he sat on his chair opposite to Jessica who was growing impatient, but dared not to show it.

“Well, do I really need my husband’s authorization to make withdrawals from an account that is legally and rightfully mine, as well?” she asks politely.

“Technically, no, Mrs. Silver, but…” he was cut short.

“Thank you, sir that is all I needed to further confirm. Now, if you don’t mind, I’d like my money in cash, all in hundred dollar bills, thank you”, she smiled gracefully.

Upon returning home, she safely tucked the several envelopes of cash in a black handbag and decided to place her suitcases in her brand new luxury vehicle.

Jessica had a very satisfying feeling; she wasn’t hurting anymore as she was a few months prior.

She feels invincible and entitled to spend all of her husband’s hard-earned money.

As she wallowed in victory, she smiled and took one last gaze at her bedroom. And there lied the bodies of Mr. Silver and his mistress Anna Spencer; also formerly known as Jessica’s maid of honor at her wedding and best friend since high school. You see, Jessica Silver had a hunch that her husband was being unfaithful. She hired a private detective two months ago and was heartbroken to discover that not only was she betrayed by her womanizing husband but her very best friend, too. She also knew that while she did philanthropic activities at a Women’s shelter; her husband met with Anna Spencer at their very own house in the quiet suburbs of Long Island. And so, she decided to confront them last night when she came into the house very quietly. She had told her husband she’d be spending the night at her friend’s house and he naively believed it. Even though; Jessica had never spent the night at a friend’s house before. She walked towards the bedroom after hearing the bed squeak and Anna’s disgusting moans. She swung the door open and they both turned in utter astonishment at the presence of Jessica.

“Jessica!” Mr. Silver exclaimed.

“Jess, I can explain”, Anna speaks as she covers her nude breasts with the comforter.

“You don’t have to. Keep him. You two can make a life with each other in hell”, Jessica very collectively had said before she fired her pistol twice striking both of her traitors. She hid the gun under the mattress. She didn’t care how much of an obvious hiding place this would be. By the time it’d be found she would be long gone. She kept her gloves on as she staged her crime scene.

And so before Jessica Silver walked out with her large black handbag and rolling her last suitcase, she turned the air conditioning in her bedroom to its highest temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 15 Celsius) and closed the door to her home.

“Going somewhere, Mrs. Silver”? The nosy neighbor Glen Atkins asked as she made her way to her car.

“Yes, as a matter of fact”, she responded.

“Have a safe trip, Mrs. Silver”, Glen had said very calmly. And Jessica didn’t notice that surprisingly Glen Atkins knew she was married and didn’t ask if Mr. Silver would be joining her on her trip. Jessica failed to notice that his lack of curiosity was suspicious. She paid no mind to this because Jessica Silver felt finally free. She felt that her actions of cold-hearted revenge were justified. This was her Poetic justice.

However… what Jessica failed to do may just cost her, her freedom. She thinks she’s committed the perfect murder. The investigators won’t be able to determine the time of death for a while. The stench of decaying bodies will not be noticeable for a long time. But—Jessica forgot to check her surroundings before she decided to strike; if she had she would’ve realized that there is someone always watching… someone like Glen Atkins, perhaps.
