Flash Reactionary: A Day in the Life of a War God
Throughout the day today, anybody happening upon Casey might notice people acting strangely around him.
As he's buying coffee before work this morning, one woman cuts ahead of another one in order to take the place immediately behind him in line. The aforementioned patient customer immediately objects, but listening to the argument that ensues suggests that her main gripe isn't that she has to wait longer for her chai latte, but that the line jumper came between her and the tall stranger in front of her.
Similar situations are observed as Casey picks up lunch that afternoon, as well as when he's picking up his kids from childcare.
A truly keen observer might notice that all of the squabbling individuals in question are wearing wedding bands. Coincidence? The pained look on Casey's face each time suggests No.
Later in the evening, Casey stops to buy a few groceries. Anybody there might be surprised to witness a cashier lashing out to punch the customer in front of Casey in the face. No conflict was observed prior to the sudden burst of violence. Casey ends up leaving his groceries on the belt to instead just head home.
