Pretending I Did Not See a Body

A body under a bush today called my attention. Strange feelings overwhelmed me, too many to mention. I swiftly looked away pretending I had not seen it at all. My husband seemed to drive faster away from the mall. I am not a crime solver or detective so why me I thought. My husband was shaky, he seemed a little distraught. Did you see a body? He asked me....by that playground slide What body? I asked. I quite easily lied. Probably a mannequin he said dismissively with relief. We did not turn on the news for days, thus escaped some grief. The body was discovered by a group of teenagers the next night They looked great on TV, so it turned out better and all right.
