“Is there anything I can get you while I’m out? Any kind of medicine or ointments?”
Eugene’s wife rolled over in bed to face him, her eyes struggling to stay open, “Just some aspirin. I’m having really bad headaches again.”
Eugene nodded and he headed for the bedroom door. Before he made it out the baby began crying. However, his wife had her ears covered, thrashing around in the bed. Without thinking, Eugene ran over and picked up the baby, slowly rocking it to try and soothe it.
“Make it stop,” his wife screeched out, “shut that fucking baby up!”
