The gun lay where it always lay, next to the bed, silent and waiting. Sue covered her face with her hands, chest heaving with emotion, trying to decide whether to ignore the damn thing. Life wasn‘t worth living anymore, all she did was work and work some more, being busy kept all the losses in her life tucked away.

Sue’s husband was out, as he was every night, drinking with his new buddies, or anybody else he could find.
Sue closed her eyes and dreamed of the day when she’d really pick the gun up and be free.
