The Talon House

20 Years Ago


Recommended Posts

A woman awakens during the night to find her husband was not in bed. She puts

on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the

kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep

thought, just staring at the wall.

She watches as he wiped a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.

"What's the matter, dear?", she whispers as she steps into the room. "Why are

you down here at this time of the night?".

The husband looks up from his coffee, "Do you remember 20 years ago when we

were dating, and you were only 16?" he asks solemnly.

"Yes, I do" she replies.

The husband paused. The words were not coming easily. "Do you remember when

your father caught us in the back seat of my car making love?".

"Yes, I remember," said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.

The husband continued. "Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face

and said, "Either you marry my daughter, or i'll send you to jail for 20


"I remember that too" she replied softly. He wiped another tear from his cheek

and said,

"I would have gotten out today."
