My Blood Chilled When I Discovered What Was Hidden in My Husband’s Drawer the Day After We Moved In Together

Freya was eager to start her new life as a newlywed when she moved into her husband George’s ancestral home. However, when Valerie, the housemaid, hinted at George’s hidden life, their marriage vows quickly began to unravel.

Just off the high of our wedding, I moved into George’s grand family home — a place that seemed lifted from a storybook with its towering ceilings, elegant arches, and gardens blooming with flowers. George had been keen on me settling in before we jetted off to our honeymoon in the South of France.

But not all was as idyllic as it appeared. From the start, Valerie, the maid, cast glances my way that seemed to shout, “You’re an outsider.” Despite the chill in her gaze, I was determined to make this my new home. Valerie would just have to accept that.

A few days after moving in, I decided to prepare a big breakfast for everyone in the house, including George’s younger siblings who still lived there.

While I bustled around the kitchen, Valerie watched my every move with sharp eyes as she cleaned around me. Her presence made me uneasy. When I went to grab my phone to look up a recipe, it was nowhere to be found.


“Have you seen my phone?” I asked Valerie, sure it had been right there on the table.

She simply shook her head without looking up.

“I’d get breakfast ready quickly if I were you,” she remarked coldly. “The family will be down soon.”

Heeding her advice, I focused on finishing the breakfast. After she left the kitchen, I found my phone on the seat she had just vacated. But it was the message on the screen that flipped my world upside down:

“Check your husband’s drawer. The top left one. Then RUN!”

Heart racing, I hurried to our bedroom, replaying the warning in my mind. Valerie had already tidied up our room by then.
