#atozchallenge, G is for Gruesome…

Gwendolyn had never even held a hacksaw, but she thought her lying, cheating, mean as a snake, waste of human flesh husband had one in the garage.  She needed him in smaller pieces to fit inside the big, black trash bags now that her iron skillet to the back of his head had worked.   He was good and dead and getting stiffer by the minute.

Thank goodness she’d had the presence of mind to whack him in the kitchen so the gruesome blood and brain matter would clean up off the linoleum rather than soaking into the gray bedroom carpet.

My theme this year is 100 word fiction.   (So, no, don’t count this line!)

      6. Yeah, my big guy is almost 14 w/arthritis so he can’t get up that fast and he whines the whole time till we’re close enough that I can pet him. Thank goodness we have a lovely high school girl next door whom I pay to feed and let them out. She’s so responsible and they don’t have to be boarded!

  14. Yes! So clever she was, planning on the linoleum over the deep-pile carpet. She’ll clearly get away with this one. Unless the cops start spraying that Luminol around the kitchen. Uh oh…

    1. And you know she’ll use bleach, assuming that will do the trick!
