Mary Maloney sits waiting for her husband to arrive............Mary:"Hullo, darling", Husband: "Hullo, darling".
Mary begins to notice that something is wrong with Mr.Maloney when he says he doesn't want anything to eat, Mary offers to get him something to eat and he refuses. "sit down, he said, just for a moment". Mary had began to get frightened.
Listen, I've got something to tell you
What is it?, What's the matter?
Mary lowers herself slowly into her seat, watching him with these large bewildered eyes. "I've got something to tell you" Mr. Maloney says, "what is it darling?, whats the matter?" Mrs. Maloney says, Mr. Maloney had now became absolutely motionless, and he kept his head down.
I'm afraid, but I've thought about it a good deal and decided that the best thing to do is to tell you right away.
I'll get the supper.
At this time Mary stood up and walked down the steps to the cellar grabbing a hold of the first thing she touched. Mary lifted a leg of lamb out, grabbed it by the thin bone-end with both hands and walked to the living room. Mary at this time without any pause swung the leg high and brought it down as hard as she could on the back of his head.
She stepped back a pace, and she stood for a while blinking at the body. She told herself "so I've killed him" she was surprised how empty her mind became.
So I've killed him, What about the child?. What are the laws about murderers with unborn children?. Did they kill them both?
Lamb to the slaughter is a story about Mrs. Maloney who, murdered her husband when he tried to leave her. Mrs. Maloney was pregnant with a child when She got a nice big lamb leg and smashed her husbands head with it. Mrs. Maloney didn't plan anything, but got away with murder. Mrs. Maloney had the perfect alibi. Who got what they wanted? Mr or Mrs Maloney????
