Evil Lurks Within Us – Part 5

Evil Lurks Within Us – Part 5

Before my mother and I could make it to the living room to see what was going on outside, the front door slammed. Susan came hurrying into the kitchen. She was swiping at her eyes, the tears no longer flowing, but it was easy to tell that she had been crying recently.

“Don’t ask because I do NOT want to talk about it. Just mind your own business!”

I promptly closed my mouth. I certainly wasn’t going to waste my sympathy on someone who didn’t want it. Susan was turning into a problem that must be dealt with soon.


It is Part 5 of my short story “Evil Lurks Within Us.” To read the rest of the story please click here or click on the “fiction-short stories” tab.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
