Her heart thumped in nervous apprehension once she heard his Ford pickup pull into their drive.
What mood would he be in today? Belligerent? Happy? Drunk?
She just never knew what to expect from one moment to the next…explosive anger or a bouquet of flowers.
Of late, living with him was like constantly walking on eggshells.
On second thoughts and in no mood for any confrontation, she quickly turned off the television and tiptoed off to bed.
