THE FISHERMAN'S WIFE




“See you honey,” the fisherman gave her a warm hug, early morning, before sailing out to the open seas to catch fish.

A sudden unannounced cyclone hit; with flash floods dislodging the loose soil – eroding away the land. Everyone ran off to safer places.

Their little pink lovely hut was hit too. Underneath the rubbles of the fallen roof, she sat still, shaking. She was waiting for her husband to return. Nothing deterred her to leave the place.

Since that fateful day, four-hundred years passed and as many cyclones. Unaware she's ethereal; she still awaits her husband to return someday.
