Response 5: If only...

As I sat by the phone waiting for the call sweat dripped from my head, my stomach churned with nerves… what if he gets caught? What if something goes wrong?  All these thoughts going through my mind it didn’t seem so worth it anymore…
My husband promised me he was on the straight and narrow since our second child, that was until we got in a load of debt and he got offered a job, a bank job … a few million each they would get… or a long prison sentence.
Time was going so slow… 3am I was expecting the call to say everything was ok, it was now 3.09am… the longest 9 minutes of my life…
Ring Ring … “hello”
“Baby we’ve done it... Were millionaires”
If only he didn’t call me that night to tell me, if only his phone wasn’t bugged by the police.
15 years…

  1. Another interesting narrative behind the phone call. To think the woman was waiting for the call that would be her peace but also her worst nightmare.
