Fooling around on your wife can be hazardous to your health. Jusk ask Tom. He's a man with a lot to juggle: a frustrated wife, a secret new girlfriend, and the unpleasant task of trying to keep his deteriorating vintage farmhouse from falling down around him.
Now with his wife out of town for the week, Tom is eager to get busy under the covers with his beautiful new lover - but first there's something he has to finish up...in the CRAWLSPACE.
Once living a lavish life, so much that it afforded him to buy an old dream farmhouse in the countryside, Tom is now unemployed. Loosing his job was devastating to him and his marriage and his self esteem hit rock bottom, until he met another woman and started a secret extra marital affair.
One day his wife left home for a week to go and visit her parents. Tom took this opportunity to invite over his new love for a week of romance in his farmhouse, but before that, he had to finish (as quickly as possible) some long overdue maintenance work in the crawlspace beneath his house. Little did he know what was in store for him once he passed through the crawlspace's entrance.
Whilst I really liked the clever ending, it was certainly not the one I expected.
I really enjoyed reading this short creepy story and I highly recommend it to anyone (not suffering from claustrophobia that is).
