"The news reports would show Nick Dunne, husband of the missing woman, standing metallically next to his father-in-love, arms crossed, eyes glazed, looking almost bored as Amy's parents wept. And then worse. My longtime response, the need to remind people I wasn't a dick, I was a nice guy despite the affectless stare, the haughty, douchebag face.

"Here's the darkest part. I drove out to the mall yesterday, where about half the town buys drugs, and it's easy as picking up a prescription; I know because Noelle told me: Her husband goes there to purchase the occasional joint. I didn't want a joint, though, I wanted a gun, just in case. In case things with Nick go really wrong. I didn't realize until I was almost there that it was Valentine's Day. It was Valentine's Day and I was going to buy a gun and then cook my husband dinner."
