Challenge #197: Weddings and Funerals
Title: Bitter Conclusions
And the Condom Goes To: Funerals
On those nights when his old man would come home reeking of booze and pussy, Brian would crack open the window in his bedroom, watching the smoke from his cigarette curl away into the darkness, wishing he could disappear just as easily.
When the screaming and crashing sounds would start, he’d feel the tension coil tightly through his body, silently agreeing with his mother’s bitter conclusion that she never should have married Jack’s cheating Irish ass.
Brian decided after a thousand too many nights of tears and pain, that people who cried at weddings had the right idea after all.
