Sandy had always been very imaginative and enjoyed writing stories. She had been to the book store and to the library to research different ways to make it look like someone had died naturally. But this wasn’t research for one of her stories. She checked no books out, bought no books, and did no research on her computer. She wanted no trace. She knew her thoughts were irrational, but the abuse appeared to be increasing. The book on toxic plants got Sandy’s thought processes rolling. She had a lot of these plants already in her garden or as house plants. He liked for her to make one pot meals like soups and casseroles and she could easily mix the plants in with his meals. That night as she placed a huge bowl of beef stew in front of him, she kissed him and told him to enjoy his meal.
