Silently, he listened to her hum happily, watching as she busied herself in front of the mirror, getting ready to go to work.
He knew she hadn’t heard of Elaine’s death and wondered what her reaction would be?
He had no words to express how sorry he felt that it had come to this, it had only started out as fun and he knew that the next couple of days may possibly change their lives forever.
He doubted that their marriage of twelve years would survive it. He would probably end up in prison if any evidence leads back to him.
The entire suspense made him sick to the pit of his stomach, he wasn’t sure again that he hadn’t left incriminating tell-tale marks.
