Complications – Part 5

Part 5

“You bastard, how could you do this to me? I can’t believe you slept with my sister,” Donna screams at me while she continues to chase me down the street. Jennifer, her sister, is still roaring with laughter as she runs in step with Donna.

Donna keeps up the obscenities although they no longer form coherent sentences. I have never seen her like this.

Eventually Donna quits screaming. I furtively glance behind me not wanting to slow down my pace.

Donna has quit running and is staring at Jennifer in comprehension. Tears begin to run down her face.

I cautiously stop running and watch. Without warning Donna raises her hand with the knife and brings it down and lodges the blade firmly in Jennifer’s chest. Jennifer goes down. She feebly clutches at the knife and tries to pull it out. Blood is soaking her shirt and begins to seep into the grass where she has fallen.

“Donna, please, it was his idea. I am so sorry.”

“It is bad enough my husband is a lying, bastard, cheater, but with my own sister, how could you? How could you?”

Donna doesn’t’ wait for an answer. She grabs the knife out of Jennifer’s chest and looks in my direction. “How could you have such a cold heart as to sleep with my sister? My sister of all people. I am going to kill you too!” Oh shit!




About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

  1. That’s one pissed-off woman. Good job yourself! Looks like you got in to this week’s Trifecta even closer “to the wire” than I did.

    Whoa! I guess that’s what Jennifer gets for laughing, but if it were me, I think I wouldn’t have joined the run in the first place.

      Jennifer was lulled in by her sister’s lack of response to her being the “other woman.” She got what she deserved, now just have to see if her cheating husband, gets his just desserts. Thank you for stopping by and reading.

    Yikes! In broad daylight! He better run, fast! Does seem ‘complicated’.


  4. Wow, that was intense. Thanks for linking up. We hope to see you back tomorrow for the new challenge.

    Great description of the rage. I think the husband is done for. I just don’t think he can run fast or far enoungh to escape Donna’s wrath.

    One down, one to go. (That’s not very sensitive of me, now is it?) 😆
