Down The Stairs

Down The Stairs

I loved my granny. But I loved her millions too and wanted to get rich. So I killed her. Just a deft push down the stairs and she had fallen and died. Her money was mine. Since then I had nightmares.

Just before I split my head on the last step I glimpsed granny pointing to the threads tied across the third step.
