50 word story #4: The accident

woman on train 2

Another nightmare.

Loops of the horrific accident that had snatched her husband.

She had overslept, arriving just in time for the later train.

Then she heard the screech of metal, shattering glass.

Woke with whimpering cries.

He reached over instinctively, held her trembling hands.

His tender touch was her unravelling.
