It started off as a regular day at the mansion. All of the staff were doing their jobs. The gardener was planting flowers and watering them, while trimming the bushes. The maids were dusting, vacuuming, and washing clothes. The cooks were making dinner for the husband and wife who live there. The waiters were cleaning themselves up and getting ready to serve the couple. The man was a doctor and the lady was a photographer. They haven't been getting along lately. Getting into fights like married couples usually do, but they were never getting over them. Some of the maids were getting suspicious because they knew there was a problem but they didn't know what. The couple sat down for dinner and were served. It was silent, except for the noise of silverware being moved. The husband finally started a conversation and asked her how her day was and what kind of pictures she took today. She just said "fine" and kept eating. The husband never knew why she always gave him a cold shoulder. Before they got married, everything was perfect, then it just went downhill from there. The wife stopped caring and putting forth the effort to be a couple and the husband got sick of it. So they kept eating dinner and after a little bit the husband got a page that they needed him at the hospital right away. So he told his wife but she didn't care, so she didn't even get up to say goodbye to him. So he left. Later that night the day was done so there was no more work for the staff to do so they went home. Leaving the wife all by her lonesome, she didn't care. She was so ignorant and rude sometimes. She always yelled at the staff for not doing a good job, especially the maids for not getting every wrinkle out of her clothes. So that night someone had just had enough. They knew no one was home but her, so they snuck in without getting on any cameras as they entered the front door, but not sneaky enough because she saw them and she came down the stairs. Just when she hit the last step, they pulled out their knife from behind their back and stabbed her right in the chest. After that they snuck back out without the cameras seeing them. In the morning the staff came to the house thinking it was another normal day but when they came in they were shocked at what they saw. They called the police and they came right away. A little while after the police cleaned up the mess, the husband came home. He was very confused at why the police were there and when he found out he acted devastated, but some of the staff weren't so sure if he was so shocked and scared, but no one ever found out who killed her. Some say the husband snuck out of his shift at the hospital to kill her and snuck back in. Others say it could have been someone on the staff, most likely a maid, but the only ones who know are the wife and....the murderer.
