Comfort.

Comfort.

It had been fifteen days since her husband had left her when she found the note stashed in her underwear drawer.

I AM WATCHING YOU.

She didn’t recognize the handwriting, but decided then and there to take comfort in the little things.

    “At least somebody is paying attention to me!”

  2. tinsenpup says:

    That’s a seriously intense 42 word story right there. There’s a whole damned novel in that. Awesome job!

  3. Sue says:

    total surprise – well done

  4. I am so creeped out right now.

    BUT WHO LEFT HER THE NOTE???

    I clearly need to hear the rest of this story.

  8. Nicely written, Michelle. I love this.

  9. TheJackB says:

    Agreed with everyone else, there is a good stroy here.

  10. Obed Medina says:

    That is a little creepy.

  11. Natalie D says:

    Is it wrong that I laughed while reading this?

  12. M. L. Sexton says:

    So much in so few words

  13. Marcy says:

    Oh, so scary and twisted.

  14. jannatwrites says:

    Well, that’s disturbing! Time to move, or at least get new locks :)

  15. AZ Gringa says:

    I can’t help but wonder: did her husband leave, or was he forcibly removed? (dun dun dun dun!)

  16. Kay says:

    Oo intriguing. I’m with Gringa, wondering if there’s more going on with the husband. But I don’t think I would react how she did – I don’t think I would find that comforting!

    • michellelongo says:

      That would be an interesting twist with the husband, wouldn’t it. I don’t think I’d be all that comforted either, but clearly there’s something up with this chick.

  17. Stacie says:

    So good, Michelle! I’m kind of sad I missed it this week but feel better that I wouldn’t have competed with your awesome entry anyway 😉

    • michellelongo says:

      Aw, you’re sweet. I wish you’d have made it though. I almost didn’t. We’ll see what happens next week!

  18. tnkerr says:

    Well I noticed the thongs in the photo and thought that these were the “little things” she was going to take comfort in.
    I worry about where my mind goes sometimes! tsk tsk

  19. Christine says:

    Eeek! I read this as: she decided she ought to take comfort in the little things because it was entirely possible that she would be killed at any moment. I think I’ve been reading too many of these teeny tiny murder mysteries. :) (I also loved tnkerr’s interpretation.) Love that you linked this up!

  20. Lance says:

    Some call it stalking, some call it liking you A WHOLE LOT.

    Creepy aside, this was really tight and well done.

  21. annbennett says:

    What a scary thing to find in your undies and to enjoy it. The ax murderer may very well have found his match.

  22. Goosebumps..and I want the REST of the story!

  23. Suzanne says:

    Yikes. I’m not sure I’d be taking comfort in anything. Great storytelling!

  24. Sarah Ann says:

    Too creepy. I agree with Suzanne – not sure of the comfort factor.
