I Should Have Bought That Thing
by Michael J. Tucker
Louise stares at her misshapen face in the mirror; blood from an open cut, the lump on her nose, her swollen lips. Her husband did it. She knows he wasn’t in his right mind. Age had brought on mental confusion to her loving husband. But this time he’d gone too far. She had to show him what he had done. She had to confront him. Now!
Conflicted with anger and forgiveness as Louise looks into her husband’s vacuous eyes, she knows his mind has taken a trip back in time.
She wrestles with her choices. How can she abandon her loving husband of fifty-three years? How can she live with his dementia driven abuse?
Louise knows she has to do something before it’s too late.
