574. Oh happy day!

(It has been pointed out that my stories are becoming more and more morbid and negative. “Can’t you write something positive,” has been the cry from some quarters. Ever eager to oblige, here then is a more optimistic story; one with a happy ending).

Mabel had been trapped in a loveless marriage for years. She had neither the energy nor the know-how to disentangle herself from what was now an insufferable burden. There was nothing else for it other than to grin and bear it forever.

And then suddenly one day she came home from shopping and her husband was dead.

      I’ve been waiting a half dozen decades or so for the stars to align themselves with my fondest dreams. I’m still waiting. Not to do with the subject of the story, but just to do with the weekly lottery ticket I’ve been taking!
