Two bodies lay naked on the chocolate coloured rug, sweaty and tangled from the waist down. A soft wind blows through the open windows.
I stir and open my eyes slowly. I looked at the naked form lying next to me and sigh contentedly. I reach out to caress her body.
Something catches my attention at the corner of my eyes. I have a sinking feeling at the pit of my stomach. I know what I am going to see. Slowly, I turn my eyes to face my wife.
Then I freeze.
She smiles at me, only it doesn’t reach her eyes and in her hands is a pistol pointing at my chest.
“Hello” she says and pulls the trigger
I jerk awake with a scream.
“What’s the matter babes?”
I sigh with relief. It is just a dream.
