A Wife's Revenge

by Chris Hugh

She washed the grease off her feet and walked back into the woods. It had been excruciatingly difficult to get under the hunter's hood and rip out his pickup truck's horn, but she managed. It was no more difficult than it had been to track down the man who murdered her husband. And murder him. A good hunter uses all parts of the animal and lets nothing go to waste, but hers was revenge, not hunting. She took the horn to decorate her den and left the dead man hanging over her husband's antlers on the wall of his den.
