Word had come to a Lady that her husband had died in war. The news came and it shocked her. Her sister was at her bed side. She had been a sickly lady. After getting over the shock. She one day was in her room alone thinking. I am now free of him. She laid on her bed, looking out the window, life just came alive. Birds were singing, flowers looked more beautiful than ever before. Later that night there came a knock at her door. In stepped her husband, explaining to her that he was just wounded in the war. The shock killed her.
