  • Exposition
  • Yes
  • Tired darling?
  • Conflict
  • There it is. I know it's a tough time but I'll give you money and see you're taken care of.
  • What is it darling? What's the matter?
  • Rising Action
  • I told you I'm not hungry, I'm going out!
  • In the exposition of the story, we are introduced to the main character, Mary Maloney and her husband Patrick. Mary was 6 months pregnant at the time. The story takes place in Mary's house where her and her husband are sitting in the living room drinking. Patrick is acting strange, at this time.
  • Climax
  • So I've killed him..
  • The conflict of the story is when Patrick brings up some surprising news that will make Marry confused and tempestuous. 
  • Falling Action
  • In the rising action of the story, Mary insists that what her husband said isn't true so she heads to the kitchen to grab something to cook for dinner. The first thing she pulls out of the freezer is a lamb leg. She carries the lamb leg back to where he was, and sees him at the window. Her husband insists that he doesn't want anything to eat and that he was going out.
  • Resolution
  • The weapon is probably right under our noses!
  • The climax of the story is when Mary kills her husband. She smacks him on the back of the head with the frozen lamb leg and he falls to the ground. She then puts the lamb in the oven. And heads over to the grocery store.
  • In the falling action, Mary pretends she didn't kill her husband so she doesn't get caught. She calls the police and tells them that she found her husband dead and they come to investigate. They do not think Mary is a suspect, because of her alibi. (At the grocery store) 
  • In the resolution of the story, Mary insists that the police eat the lamb leg "she was cooking" so they do not suspect anything. As they eat in the kitchen Mary laughs.
  • haha....
