Joyce was reading a

book before she heard the door

open slowly which

made her get up and take the

gun out of the top drawer.

 

Then, she turned around

and shot the intruder dead

before she looked down

and saw with fear in her eyes

that it was her own husband.

 

He came home to take

his wife out on a dinner

date for their wedding

anniversary only

to have her shoot him down dead.
