Love is Deadly

One woman. One man. One dangerous relationship.
It's 2015. She's ex-military. He's ex- S.W.A.T team. They know their weapons. They know their strengths.

But one question remains above them all...

Do they really love each other?


5. If looks could kill. (Jake's POV)

I open my present. I don't realise how hopeful I am for a  way out of this marriage. I don't know what it is yet. There's so much packaging. I get to the last layer. I calm myself down. The box is empty. My eyes widen. I've never been so, so, so shocked? Am I shocked? Am I angry? Am I about to burst out laughing? I don't do any of this. I walk up to her and peck her cheek. She smiles.

'I have to go out to the shops sweetie' She grabs her handbag and walks out. Perfect. I walk back to the box. She acted like there was something in here. I pull out all bubblewrap. All the boxes. All the packaging. There it is. My real present. First I slice open the envelope for the card.

Dear Jake,

Happy Birthday. Although you are another year older I still Lo... I still love you.

Love I mean From Carly.

I chuck it onto the pile of cards I have. I pull out the present. A bottle of cologne? Nah, I bet it's some spray poison or memory wiper from the military.

I do love my wife. Just not the way I should.
