Flash Fiction

55 Fiction – Only mine

I stared at the picture of my wife. So beautiful. So striking. I love her dearly. Passionately. And I thought she’d felt the same.

Until I found the letters of her betrayal.

But I don’t want to think about that now. Not when I have her forever.

Locked away in my basement. Only mine.

    This one scares me.. Is the wife dead? Is she buried in the basement? Or the letters are in the basement?

    Disqus generic email templateOoh I like that interpretation too…like I said before, it’s open to interpretation. My line of thought was locked in the basement but killed and buried sounds more morbid… 😛
