LAKE VIEW

Gagged and tightly bound, I can see my final resting place, Deep Lake. I notice the rocks he's neatly stacked and will use to keep me weighted. Will the truth ever surface? Will anyone question my disappearance or just go about their lives as they are now, ignorant of the evil in their midst?

My husband hums as he works, and then smiles. "Hey beautiful, I warned you, told you I'd provide all you needed. A job, I don't think so, it's just an excuse to flirt and cheat. Don't worry; this is my favorite fishing spot. I'll visit often."

100 words

  2. I love reading your flash fiction! They're always a touch humorous :)
    Also, is this exactly 100 words? Then that's a drabble! I dig writing them because it's hard getting exactly 100.
