While Her Husband Watches

There was still smoke—it was dark and acrid, spiraling up into the cloudless sky. But the glow of the flames had gone, at least at this distance—perhaps some of the embers in the ruined shed still smoldered faintly. The one remaining wall was black and charred. The roof had caved in and ash and splintered timber covered what little was left of Brandon's ill-conceived attempt at smoking his own pork. Rachel still wasn't sure exactly what had gone wrong.

She ignored her husband. They were standing by the kitchen window watching as his latest dream went literally up in smoke. At least the fires hadn't spread. The shed was a couple hundred feet from the house, next to the long and winding dirt drive that led down to the road. There hadn't been much risk of losing their home—not unless things got really out of hand. But the thick trees that separated their property from the neighbors pressed up against it on at least two sides. Good thing it had rained recently, or the whole wood might have gone up. That would have been an unholy mess! And for what? For a half-baked idea that she knew Brandon hadn't researched properly.
