Wait Over



The train was approaching towards the station and John was still missing from her sight,"will he come" , Martha's sparse mind questioned impulsively.

They met last month near downtown church and became the ointment of each other's morose hearts as they
were entangled in estranged marriages.

They decided to divorce their spouses to be with each other but John was hesitant about this decision because he felt that her wife still loved him.

Martha assured him to talk to his wife and made her understand about their relationship after which they would leave this town.

As she was waiting for him at the railway station sorting out things with his wife, he came accompanied by police force to arrest her for killing his wife and storing her body pieces in the wooden box she was carrying.

This post is written for Three Word Wednesday ( sparse,impulsive,morose ) and Five Sentence Fiction ( waiting

A very different take on the prompt...poor guy lost his loving wife.

Gosh! They tracked the killer!
Very interesting & unique surprise at the end, Cifar.
Reminded me of Baazigar movie where SRK puts a dead body in a suitcase.

Once again a derailment of an ending - fabulously so - the ointment of each others heart..before i got to the end i thought yep...keep waiting...it's worth it...but maybe some ointments can turn to poison

Wow! That was a bit of a shock for me, but I love the way you built up to it even though it was a surprise.

You really had me hooked to twist there in the last sentence. And I love the way you've used the three words.

Now, this is what is called 'a twist in the tale'. Impressive...
