She's Been Distant by DragonSkulls
    Surprise! 80 Words or Less Contest Winner 

Lately my wife has been distant and cold. I haven't
even heard her say a word in days. All of our friends
and family are worried. I always make up excuses as
to why I show up to places alone.

Today her daughter came over to see her. I told Brenda she
was lying down in the bedroom. After grabbing my cane,
I followed her into the room, then thought to myself,
"Great, now I have to kill her too."
