‘It’s sabotage, you know,’ said my wife.
I pulled a face as we carried on looking out the window. In the street below our apartment two fire engines were putting out the fire engulfing the only house on the block.
‘They’ve been trying to knock down that house for years so they can build another complex there,’ she explained.
‘It was probably an accident,’ I responded.
‘Hopefully, they had good insure and can built another house then,’ my wife added.
A few months later, my wife was proven right.
