A man hates his wife and he wants to “play” her dead, just to play the scrabble words ‘dead’ or ‘kill’.
But he hasn’t got the right letters to play one of these words. So he wants to tease her by playing some other words. Like ‘quake’, ‘zaps’ and ‘cheating’. But that doesn’t matter to her.
So when she has the correct words she kills him.
Twist: The man wants to kill his wife with the words of scrabble but after all his wife kills him with the word of scrabble.I think that the two people are husband and wife because he calls her wife.
I think they dislike each other because he says he hates her.
I think the story takes place in the summer and that they are at home because it is a blistering hot Sunday afternoon and all he can think of to do with his life is to play Scrabble.
I think they are playing the game because they are bored. The reason why I think so is that he says all he can think of to do with his life is to play Scrabble.

The eight-letter word that his husband plays that enables him to come from behind and lead in the game is ‘cheating’. He stole a blank tile from the letter bag, he is cheating.
Name the three words which make things happen and which lead the husband to think the game is controlled by some evil power
a. Explodes b. Cheating c. Zaps
What happens to the husband when his wife plays the word DEATH?
The room starts to shake, the husband grasps with surprise and vindication, and the B that he was chewing on gets lodged in his throat.
According to the story, the husband:
Really wants to murder his wife Is hot, tired and bored
Is frightened his wife will beat him at Scrabble again
The words in the tiles that the husband plays:
Convince him to kill his wife
Prove that the heat is driving him mad
Show his internal struggle with his own feelings
The quake at the end of the story:
Is real and causes him to swallow the tile and die
Is the sound of the air conditioning until falling again
Is not a quake but the fact that his wife has won
The theme of the story is, in our opinion, anger. We think this because the husband is very angry about everything his wife does.
