She said, “Mrs. Mendez, Mr. Mendez has returned.”
I snapped back to attention and stood up. I wiped away tears that I hadn’t

As I was about to leave the room, Auntie Sidney interrupted me, saying, “Mrs.

It could tell that Liam was in a good mood.
He was always in a good mood as long as he didn’t see me.
However, I had to push the door open, spoiling his mood.
The bedroom was in disarray, with the smell of cigarettes.
Liam lay on the bed, the blanket draped over his waist.
In his arms was a beautiful long-haired woman with a fair back and slender
arms. There was a lifelike green peacock tattooed on her back.
As I entered the room, she was grinning while lighting a cigarette for Liam.
Liam held the cigarette filter in his mouth, turned his head, and stared at me

I shuddered and looked at Liam.
He opened his eyes and stared at me impassively.
