My husband's beard is blue. The stain on the key... is not.
“Anything you like,” he'd said before leaving. “What's mine is yours, except this one room.”
I tried to distract myself exploring my new home. Tried to be patient. To be good.
But in the end, I disobeyed.
Inside the room, I found pieces of the wives who'd come before me.
And now, no matter how hard I scrub, the traitorous key remains blood-stained.
When he returns, my husband will see. He'll know, and he'll add me to the collection.
Some doors, once opened, can't be shut.
