This is the sixth instalment of Weekend Writing Warriors’
8 Sentence Sunday Blog Hop.
This is from a short story I wrote recently. Only 7 sentences today, to accommodate a natural break in the narrative. Starting from the top:
“Mommy! Make it stop!”
The little girl’s plea fell on deaf ears, as her parents continued to rage at each other, full volume. It was the same scene every weekend. Father came home stinking drunk and Mother railed at him. They said horrible things to each other and once, Mother hurled a heavy, glass ashtray at his head. It broke open a large gash on his temple and she took him to the hospital. The little girl was home alone and peace reigned at last, but only for awhile.
