Partner in Crime

Our plan was solid, well executed, but a weak link left a loose end to tie up. It’s supposed to be an even split, but I’m always left fixing shit. He has his strengths, but I haven’t seen them in so long, I forgot what they are. I swear, if he comes over smiling as if “we” did it, I will slap him senseless. He’s making jokes with the host, while I’m cleaning up his mess.

Once, about three years ago, I had to drive 100 miles to get him out of trouble. He calls me the fixer as a joke, but I’m not laughing.

Not that he’s never said: “You are the reason we work.” But that gets old after a while.

One mission, I flew solo, he supported me however he could, but we were both congratulated. Since I’m the only one who can have a baby, I should let that one go.

But that’s how it is in our marriage.




I’m Hannah Erica, a Philly native and the writer for this website. I received my Bachelor’s in Communications with a Journalism certificate from the University of Phoenix. I came from a big family, and growing up we didn’t have many material things to play with, so our creative sides came out. As a child I would write skits that my siblings and I acted out, and I would write children's books to read to my younger siblings. More than a decade ago a started writing film scripts and completed two. It's a tough business to get work published, so I put the film script writing on the back burner and I write short stories that I publish on my own website.
