With red-rimmed eyes he stood at the window absently fingering the little box in his pocket. He considered just wrapping the table’s contents into the tablecloth to take out to the trash.
Her message that morning: “Darling, I’m bringing a surprise for your parents, see you soon!” (Shots in the background)
No time to duck the bullets; she silently slumped to the ground.
