Jacey unlocked the door to her apartment and walked in with a tired huff. The entryway was dark as she set her stuff down on the entryway bench. She started flicking on lights as she started walking through her house.
The living room was full and stuffy as she turned on her central air and she made her way to the kitchen. Everything seemed eerily quiet as she went into her refrigerator and took out a cold beer. In her heart, she knew her husband wasn’t home. Everything was too dark and too quiet as she stepped back into her living room. She knew that her husband wasn’t home.

She sobbed and trembled in sadness as she listened to rain come down around the house. She let the central air drown out the already cold room and her pleaded cries for her pain to stop…
