Susan Was Home Alone
Susan had asked her estranged husband, Mike, to watch her cats for her. When she returned from her hair appointment she found that he wasn’t at her home. He had left her a simple note near the microwave that said, “Sue, haven’t been sleeping. Had to get away, went to the beach.” He signed it, “Luv, ME.”
Susan didn’t think anything of the note or the fact that her security alarm was beeping when she walked into the house. Disarming the alarm, Susan went back outside and flipped through her mail in the warm, September sun.
