Its a hot sunday afternoon and the Narrator and his wife are playing Scrabble. The Narrator is quoted as saying "I hate my wife." and "That's how bad it is. Im 42 years old." The Narrator also has a bad habbit of chewing on the letters causing them to be frayed on the eges.
The Narrator realizes that when he puts down a word on the scrabble board whatever it says it actually happens. The Narrator realizes this when he plays word "EXPLODES" and the A/C unit fails. Once the Narrator realizes the power of the board he attempts to weild it. He attempts to kill his wife using this power but he cannot because he doesnot have the right letters to speel out his murderous words.
The Narrator finds the perfect word to carry out his evil deeds. His word "QUAKE" . But just as the room begins to shake his wife plays the word death. The Narrator starts to choke on the letter he was chewing and he dies while his wife whaches unfased as he squirms, clawing at his neck.
