昨晚一时无聊，随便写了个开放性结局的英文悬疑小短篇练练笔。灵感来源于以前去新奥尔良的时候进了一个差不多荒废了的地方，本来进去里面黑乎乎有些害怕，然后一眼发现了其他“ 同好” 估计前一晚在里面爬梯完，在石头上留了不少啤酒瓶子 还有Mardi Gras 的珠子。当场把我乐笑了😂。 凭着灵感写一气写完的，可能有不少grammar错误，随便看看就好😂，欢迎讨论结局帮我改改语法。。
It was a bright and sunny morning. She woke up feeling groggy, with a nasty headache from the night before. The sun has started to peak through the thin white curtains and fill the room with a warm and yellow glow.
She groaned and covered her face with a pillow. She dearly loves a sunny day. But that morning arrived much too soon. She’s still hungover from last night. Her head was spinning like a carousel.
She felt an instant and intense
need to be comforted. She reached over to his side of the bed, but only felt the touch of the cold linen. He wasn’t in bed with her. But he always gets up before she does. Nothing seemed out of place. She wallowed in bed and refused to leave the warmth of her cocoon. She thought of his soft lips, almond- shaped eyes and broad chest. She wished she could rewind and have last night start all over again. It’s the only night of the year that they can be wild and free in the spirit of Mardi Gras.
This year, they got all dressed up and attended the parades first. Then they snuck into the abandoned fort that was built in the 1800s. They drank, laughed and danced all night long.
She was hesitant at first but gave into his persistence. The place was creepy as hell at night. But they needed this night to be extra special to rekindle their romance. They had not been intimate ever since he caught her cheating.
The night was alive. Too bad it was a little bit too short. She probably drank too much. Her memory of the night was rather hazy. Everything was a blur. She couldn’t even remember how they managed to get home.
All she could remember was that he called her sweetheart and gave her a kiss when they finally settled into bed. He said he would wake her up the next morning with a surprise.
So she waited. She was waiting for the aroma of fresh coffee and sizzling pancakes to permeate the house. He loves to surprise her with breakfast in bed.
She waited patiently. She waited and waited some more. She fell back to sleep and woke up again. Her tummy rumbled. She was hungry.
But he did not come. He didn’t walk into the room with a carefully prepared breakfast tray as she wished. And the house was awfully quiet. It was so quiet that she can hear the mewling of her stomach.
“ Honey, are you there?” She asked, finally rolling out of bed. She got changed into a casual blue dress and dragged her hair up into a messy bun.
But there was no response.
“ Honey?” She raised her voice a little as she closed the bedroom door behind her.
Still, she heard nothing. Not a single sound.
She walked into the living room. The first thing she noticed was a huge pile of letters, tossed into a white garbage bag. It looked like whoever was doing this left in a hurry so the bag was left out in the open.
His phone was placed right next to their Mardi Gras beads, lying on the coffee table. His keys were hanging from a hook on the wall. She gazed out the window and saw both of their cars parked in the driveway.
A chill went up her spine. She drew a deep breath and looked through the rest of the house. His wedding band was abandoned on the top of the wooden console table – the same table that was a wedding gift from his parents.
She felt her heart sink a little and went into the small room off the hall- his home office. She had a faint hope that maybe he just went for a walk around the block and would return at any moment. They would ended up laughing about it together.
However, she soon discovered that her pink Glock was gone. It was carefully hidden behind a fabric cover on the bottom right of the bookcase.
Oh lord, she thought. Her face was deathly pale.
Instantly, she grabbed her phone and dialed his number. But the call went straight to voicemail. She would keep trying but she just couldn’t reach him.
She frantically grabbed her keys and rushed towards the door. But then, she paused.
Her eyes widened with fear. She saw a couple red drops splattered onto the beige floor tiles.
She stood there feeling sick. Her gut twisted.
谢谢鼓励😂 我就是有些杯弓蛇影 😉
谢谢！❤️ 😂 被拆穿了。以后有空的话再引申一下，发展成中篇 。
