Here a free drabble for you! “Temptation,” by me.
I caught my wife eating the cat. I wanted to make a joke, but she wouldn’t have taken it well. Marriage is hard enough when you’re not intentionally pissing off the wife by calling her a lesbian.
“Don’t tell Casey.” Her only request. Blood staining her mouth from a fresh kill, a new shade of lipstick, she kept our daughter in mind. Laura loved her enough to want to protect her from this, just not enough to protect the pet.
“Don’t worry. I won’t.” I wasn’t mad at her. How could I blame her?
I’d just finished eating our daughter.
