The Dying Wife by Evan Schaeffer

The dying wife confessed to her husband that she'd always known about his secret life but hadn't loved him enough to care. Sensing a bluff, the husband denied everything. Only later did he realize his mistake: his wife, now gone, had had secrets too, and these might haunt him forever.

Evan Schaeffer's writing has been published in Artful Dodge, the Chicago Tribune, and elsewhere. His complete publishing history can be found at He lives in St. Louis.
