Evil Lurks Within Us – Part 6


Evil Lurks Within Us – Part 6

Mary stared out the window, anger clouding her reason. The couple, unaware of her scrutiny, continued their embrace. They had no reason to believe that they had been spotted as Mary was confined to a wheelchair thanks to Tom’s loss of reason one night and shoving her down the stairs while they were fighting. This hadn’t been the first time he abused her, but it was the worst.

Mary fumed, now aware of the answer to her questions as to where Tom was spending his nights.

Still unaware of being watched, Tom and Susan turned to head back up to the house. Mary headed back to her wheelchair and settled into it. Her eyes went to Tom’s gun cabinet in the corner, a plan formulating in her mind as she contemplated a way to rid her house of her traitorous nurse and husband.
