HOPE’S REVENGE

The old leaky apartment was not what she was used to, but it was a lot better than her previous accommodations.

“Look to him, he stirs.” Hope urged her assistant. Pandora obliged, running her sharp blade through Zeus’s bound torso. His scream reverberated in the silence, but Hope wasn’t worried. The grilled windows and walls were soundproof.

Many millennia ago she was crammed into that jar with those abominations by the gods. They bruised and scarred her. Innocent Pandora lost her husband’s love- oh, the injustice!

But no more. Hope smiled. She would have her revenge now.

HONEYMOON

“A holiday on the moon- Must’ve cost you a fortune darling, but what a lovely surprise!”

“Anything for you, honey.” Clark Radford smiled. “Now give me a hug, won’t you?”

 

1 day later:

“Woman dies in space due to sudden leaking of oxygen tube. Husband Clark Radford sues technical specialist for negligence…”

 

Clark won the case.

 No one discovered the tiny blade hidden in his customized spacesuit.

The lying bitch! Cheating on me with that high flying whizkid! Well now she can never cheat again…

The trip had  cost him a lot, but boy, had it been worthwhile!
