This is for a mini challenge. The instructions were:
1. Write two ultra-short stories (no more than 75 words each)
2. They should be completely different in mood, tone, genre

“You’ve never been more beautiful,” her husband said with perfect timing.
Death Do Us Part
Megan stared at the stain, horrified. She clutched her stomach as the red liquid oozed from her, saturating her hands and dripping to the floor. Her legs collapsed beneath her as she looked with wide eyes at the one she’d pledged her love to. Her betrayer stood arrogantly above her, still holding the smoking revolver.
“Why?” she managed as life left her body.
“Why does anyone do anything?” he said smugly to himself. “Money.”
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
