Complications – Part 3

Part 3

The quickest exit would have been the back door, but it was blocked with an enraged, knife-wielding female. I turned and headed through the house to the front door hoping to beat my wife, before she took a swing at me with the butcher knife she had grabbed after her sister, Jennifer, spilled the beans about our affair. Women are so emotional!

The knife went zipping past me and clanged against the door. She had missed, but I wasn’t ready to take a chance that she would miss the second time. I ripped the door open and tore through it!


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.

    I love it! I had hoped that butcher knife would have nailed him in the butt, though. Poetic justice and all that.


  3. Rage and adrenaline, both actively shown here. Run, Rabbit, Run!

    Well done!


  4. Well, that’s quite the conflict! He better have fast feet 🙂
