The evil conquered me

The evil conquered me…I couldn’t think or take any action…It was all flowing through my veins…Like blood but without stains. I had a dream, or more of a nightmare! That she’d come and ask for help but deceive me instead and cry for help…Yes, she wanted to kill me! My wife…You’re having psychological problems since your father’s death…I didn’t kill him...Well maybe a little!! I had to…He caught me cheating on you…He threatened me…He wanted to hug me, with a knife!!I guess he was weak. He couldn’t ingest the fact that his daughter wasn’t enough.

The day she would ask for help came, and I was waiting there for the right moment to execute my plan. Honey, her dry lips moved, I need a favor, she paused, I want a promise….boom!!I used the wrench that I’ve hidden in my pants earlier in the day…Right in the middle of her head…I killed her right away!! I ran quickly to the garage, grabbed the keys and drifted my way through the cars…A red light I crossed was the last thing I’ve seen, the windscreen shatters was the last thing I heard. I’ve died that’s what I wanted, a one way ticket to heaven. Complete darkness…I felt cold and shivery and then I felt hot and sweaty…I didn’t know where I was. Then I assumed that darkness is my revenge and coldness is my win…

I wake up to see the shades by darkness go away. Whispers over my head, I’m in a hospital. I got busted and received treatment for nine months until I got a life sentence for two murders I would never regret. A day or two passed with nothing to be said..I was bored sitting all day beside my bed…Until the third one came with a letter I would never forget…It made me cry like I never did...I see the lines written by my lovely wife…Found in her pocket just after my crime…I knew what you did, it said, we all make mistakes I forgive you with no apologies or stories to be said…

I loved the eerie setting you gave and the word choice you used to provoke the reader to continue.
Could you give me some feedback on my short story - Misguided Love? Thank you
