No Hard Feelings
While ever the wild goat’s head hung on the living room wall Jan believed her husband would come back. He’d hunted and killed it himself, proudly insisting on sending it to the taxidermist.
Twenty years later the goat’s eyes were still lively, the fur glossy brown. If only she’d preserved their marriage so well, but botox injections hadn’t worked.
Now her husband was marrying a vegetarian animal rights activist he met at the farmer’s market she’d sent him to.
No chance he’d come back now.
Jan had no hard feelings. She’d send the bride a present. Something her husband had loved.
