I guess I should mention that I’ll be using the car on Friday.

Oh?

Yeah, I need to take care of some errands.

Well, while you’re out, can you –

No.

No? You don’t even know what I was going to say.

I have an idea. You always do this when I take the car. If you had errands, do it during the week when I’m at work.

I didn’t think about it until now. I’m just asking a favor.

-sigh- What is it?

I need more coffee. I’m running low…what? I didn’t think about it.

Fine.

Get the slow roasted kind. Ooo! Or maybe –

Do you want to go with me? You can pick it yourself.

Fine.

…Maybe we should split up for a while.

What?

It’s been sour for some time and I think a break would do us good.

I don’t believe this. Now who’s the one waiting for a bad time?

I was going to just give you the papers but I figured I should say something beforehand.

Fine.

I think that went well.

I’d say. Ha. First time I’d agree with you on that.

Chalk it up to the coffee. I focus better with it in my system. A lot more fun that time too.

You know, I think you’re right.

Two for two. Is this some kind of streak?

I’m just saying, it was fun. It’s the most fun we’ve had for…months…it’s what’s been missing.

I’d say.

Babe, it’s been really great these past few weeks.

I didn’t think I’d hear you say that, with this divorce business.

I mean it. I…think I might change my mind about the divorce.

You can’t switch like that.

Why not? You do it all the time.

Don’t start.

I wanted a divorce because you didn’t seem that interested anymore but you’ve shown me that you are. That you want that spark in our marriage again.

I do. I always have. But I’ve been tired.

I know, I know. You need your coffee.

Not only that. I miss being there when you choose them. You haven’t been inviting me along.

I thought it be better to just get it over with.

But that’s part of the fun.

Are you ready?

Yeah.

Do you want to choose this time?

…really? You’re okay with that?

You’re my partner. I’d do anything for you…I lost sight of that.

I love you.

I love you more.

How is it?

Less blood this time. Hmm.

What’s wrong?

I don’t think he’ll make it.

Why? Isn’t bleeding less a good thing? I thought we didn’t want them to bleed out too soon.

Yeah, but less blood now means it was too much yesterday. I think I hit an artery. He’s sluggish and sweaty today.

Should I prep then?

Yeah. Thank you babe.

-gasp- You shouldn’t have!

I thought it might be nice. You’ve been so great lately. I don’t tell you that enough.

Let’s share it together. It’s so sweet.

I remembered the brand we got on our honeymoon.

This is just perfect!…She’s screaming again. I told her there’s no one around but…she didn’t believe me.

Is it distracting? I can take care of her now.

No, no. I want to be there with you and I don’t want you to soil your new shirt.

It’s just a shirt.

All the same.

Maybe if we close the door. There, that better?

Perfect.

Tomorrow we’ll take the chords out. She’ll just make a guttural sound. –guttural sound-Like that.

Okay. Want another glass?

I’d love it.
