Excerpt from The Addict’s Widow

Wake up! (Darkness-2)

Anecdote 2

“Wake up!”

He nudged me.

I got startled. I had just fallen asleep.

I looked at the clock. It’s 11:00 p.m The kids are

 fast asleep.

“What, what’s wrong?”

I followed him as he leads me into the living room.

Christmas decorations filled the room and animated

figurines were strategically placed right in front of the tree.

We had just bought white themed ornaments and beautiful silver bows to accent the tree.

The decorations looked magical. The kids were so excited for Christmas this year. They were at the perfect age.

“Look! Look!” Don’t you see them? There! A million ants are crawling on the ceiling.

“What do you mean a million ants are on the ceiling? I don’t see any.
