Jason took a sip from his coffee cup. The table full of document; police report, autopsy, medical history, any document he need for insurance claims. Surely, his job is not easy.
"I am sorry ma'am. Honestly, I am really sorry. This policy didn't cover your husband death."
"I know..." Malissa reply.
"As you know, your husband suicide..."
"Please..." Malissa suddenly grab his arm.
"Please refrain yourself from using that term. Please?" Her grab gradually stronger. Jason start to feel the pain at his arm.
'What kind of lady able to produce this type of strength? Superwoman?'
"I will ma'am. If you kindly, release my hand from your constriction."
Malissa shocked. She released her hend from his arm, and contemplate with the action.
"Its a murder... Never suicide." Melissa start talking. She feel that she need to tell what trapped in her heart for so long.
"But the autopsy report is telling me an antithesis of your statement?" Melissa start smile cynically.
"The report is horseshit. They didn't know my husband as much as I am. Beside, he alway remind me to cherish my own life."
Malissa start sobbing.
"I just return from groceries. He was watching soccer match in the living room. I went to ask him about what he would like for dinner. That's when I saw her."
"He was cheating?" Basic assumption of disfunctional marriage.
"My husband didn't cheat. That's girl. She standing in front of him. There were never a face on where it supposed to be. Her body cover with all black old cloth. But I heard her word clearly as day. 'Follow me...' My husband slowly lowered his body and he slice his throat with the fruit knife."
"Ma'am, I think you need to refer yourself to a psychologist..."
"I am still sane! I know what happened, what I see. When I tell the truth, its all post-trauma, stress and depression in your account. Police didn't listen. Doctors didn't listen. I just want to at least one people to believe me. I want no money from the policies."
She walk away with her tears.
