Fiction by Anita Stewart
Jay Hamilton struggled to breathe as his wife, Sophia, stood
beside his hospital bed, weeping.
"Sophia, my ... heart will ... always belong to you." He held her hand
over his chest and closed his eyes.
Two weeks later...
With her lover at her side, Sophia listened as the lawyer read the will.
"To my faithful dog, Boomer, I leave all my money."
She gasped. "What do I get?"
A metal box was handed to her. The blood drained from her face as
she looked inside.
"What's in it?" her lover asked.
"His damn heart!"
