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.


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.
