It was all her own fault.

She nagged him for her own computer. He bought her one.

She nagged him about the cable running down the stairs.

He said it was necessary.

She said it was a death trap.

He said it was the network cable linking their two machines.

She nagged him to remove it, said it was dangerous.

He said he'd do it tomorrow.

By the time the ambulance men arrived and the paramedics said she'd broken her neck, he'd tidied the wiring away and moved her computer upstairs.

He said it was an accident. They believed him.
