A Nest for the Newlyweds
by Marge Simon

Frederick and Sarah Whitfield, newlyweds, stood holding hands. Before them was a spacious area in a run-down old building.
“It was once a gym, and this was the indoor pool. As you can tell, it survived the bombing, but barely. You see,” said Frederick, “it’s just as I told you, love! Suits our needs perfectly, yes?”
“You know, it does have a certain something about it. But the roof –”
“Oh, we can get that fixed,” said Frederick.
“And all those windows, most of them missing glass –?”
“No problem, we can replace the old glass with opaque. We were going to do that anyway, no matter what we chose.”
“For privacy, of course,” Sarah nodded.
“I’m a bit concerned about how much we’ll need to fill the pool area, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”
Six months later…
“Done, beautiful! That thing took seventeen drums of acid to fill it, a bit more than the estimate, though,” said Frederick.
“And a pretty penny it was. But our victims’ disposal system is in place.” Sarah gave Fred’s hand a squeeze. No more worries about Scotland Yard finding bodies buried in the basement.”
“Right. We have so much to look forward to, my dearest. What fun!”
They sealed it with a kiss.

    Nothing like shared interests to keep a couple together. A lovely dark tale.
