  I pull into the driveway from another late night. I walk into the house to find that all of the lights are off, as usual. My wife must be already in bed and sleeping. It's late and I'm tired, so I figure I might as well go to bed too. I don't even bother turning on the lights anymore, I can navigate through this house blind. Besides, I don't want to wake the wife. The bedroom door creeks as I open it and inch my way to the side of the bed and crawl in. I move closer to my wife and wrap my arm around her. I know she's asleep, but I somehow feel her embrace me as I hold her. I slowly drift to sleep, with the love of my life in my arms.

  I slowly begin to wake up when I find my love is no longer in my arms, or in bed for that matter. I open my eyes to see her entire side of the bed is covered in dry, crusty blood. I panic and look to the floor to see bloody footprints leading out of the room. I frantically get up to follow the footprints to search for my wife. As I approach the door, I decide to take one last scan of the room. As I turn around, I see my once beautiful wife sliced open and mutilated, nailed to the wall above our bed. Beside her, painted in her own blood were the words, "Thanks for holding me, but maybe next time you should turn on a light when you come in."
