Ellen never thought she'd be the wife and mother type. It wasn't in her blood. She was going to get her degree and become some fancy lawyer that everyone feared and respected. She was going to make partner at her law firm within five years. She was going to make a difference with her words.
Then Bill came along with his good looks and Ellen slowly said goodbye to that future. She could still make a difference, though she finished her degree, just this time as a hunter. Instead of persuasion and justice, she had rock salt and a gun.
Ellen tossed the match into the open grave and watched the corpse light up. She'd feel bad about desecrating someone's grave if it wasn't for the fact that its ghost had been killing people. Afterwards, she headed back to her car and drove home. If she knew her husband, and she did, he was passed out in front of the television with their daughter asleep next to him.
It wasn't the life of a lawyer, far from it, but as she opened the door and saw the two most important people in her life, Ellen found herself not minding much.
