The Case of the Broken Hearts – Chapter 17

Posted by cyberpfalcon on September 25, 2012

Detective Watson led Elaine out of the office and into the hallway. The arrested Elaine hung her head down as they walked.

“What is the meaning of this?” A voice yelled at them from across the hallway.

It was from Samuel Walters, who approached them with a few of his partners behind him.

“What’s going on here?!”

“Well,” Watson explained, “Elaine Miller is being arrested for the murder of your wife.”

“Don’t be absurd!”

“Actually,” Sheryl said, “She already confessed.”

Elaine looked up at Samuel. “Samuel! I’m sorry… But I did it for us!”

“You did it for… You killed Simone?”

“I did it for us! She was going to blackmail you! I did it so that we could be together.”

“You… you psycho! I don’t know what kind of relationship you think we had, but- but- get that psycho away from me!” Samuel turned and walked away.
Elaine’s heart broke after hearing those words. The man that she loved had completely denied their relationship. It was at that moment that she realized that he didn’t love her, she was just another fling to him. All that she had done for him would have no reward.
