100 Word Story – A Housewife’s Tale (Part Three)

Marriage is one of the most dramatic changes a person can do that will forever affect the rest of their life. The idea of finding their “one true love” or a “soulmate” becomes a driving force desperate idiots use to find some kind of meaning in their boring lives. And once they find that person, have gone through the waves of emotional seduction, their eyes are no longer blinded by a fake sense of romance and heated passion.

Unfortunately for Helena, she was one of those idiots.

She fell for the suave advances of her husband, Markus. He knew exactly the right things to say, the right things to do at the right moment, and had swept Helena off of her feet. She offered to bear his children, polish his shoes before he left for work, and even was willing to experiment in the bedroom on a whim.

But one day, that magical spark of romance grounded and died.


Markus relaxed at the table, watching the television in the living room area from his seat. Helena hand her hands deep in soapy suds and sponge as she cleaned off the dishes from their meal.

Looking down at the white foam hiding her hands, Helena’s mind had wild, unusual thoughts taking hold. As she did the dishes, her grip on them slowly became tighter, as if she was trying to suffocate the inanimate objects. After being entranced at the thought, her grip became strong enough to where she broke a plate in half.

The shatter brought her back to reality.
