It was you!

I was in the kitchen alone.

I heard a sound in the front room.

As I turned toward the sound I saw a shadow cross the floor.

As I moved forward the shadow it moved father to the right.

Two more steps and the shadow continued to be just out of sight.

One more step. It stopped. I saw a hooded figure with a sickle.

I recognized the face of course.

It was you, my wife!
