Hellen

by Jan Hurst-Nicholson
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 21/02/2017

“Why can’t you get a decent job?' “You’re useless.' “I don’t know why I married you,' she screamed endlessly.

Her name was Hellen and he called her Hell, because for 30 years that’s what she’d made his life.

She scoffed at his efforts to help cook and clean. “When will I ever please you?' he pleaded.

“When hell freezes over,' she sneered.

He bought her the new chest freezer she wanted, but she complained, “It’s not big enough.'

“Yes. It. Is,' he said, stuffing her body inside.

Smiling, he wondered how long it would take for Hell to freeze over.
