The Evil Touch

5 pages3 minutes


Henry and his wife Jane were celebrating their 25th anniversary with friends and family, but they both knew in their hearts that they were both dying inside and all the love they had for each other was gone many years ago, but they didn’t want to spoil the evening in front of friends and family, so they put on their happy faces and made it look like they were still in love.
The party went on without a hitch and when the last guest left and the door was closed, Henry’s wife laid in on him like a ton of bricks about his love affairs with his secretary.
Henry said, “We live like strangers in this big house and we sleep in separate bedrooms. I couldn’t take the loneliness anymore and she came on to me, so I said why not? Then the attraction grew even stronger every time we touched, and you can yell at me all you want, but it’s not going to change a thing between us, so after this goodbye trip I planned for us is over we’re over.”
Jane was still deeply in love with Henry and thought the trip would be her last ditch effort to change his mind about dissolving their marriage and give it one more chance. The only thing they both in common at this point was sky diving. Henry was an air force pilot and got a purple heart when he served his country in the Vietnam War.
Henry pretended to be in good spirits with the trip and knew the skydiving trip was the perfect plan for an accident to happen, if you know what I mean.
When Henry and his wife arrived at the airport, he told her to get aboard their Cessna he had rented while he got their parachutes. Jane had no clue what Henry’s plans were when they were going to jump out of the plane and pull their chutes.
