The Light Treatment
Word count: 98
Linda brought every single lamp out calmly, and set them down carefully. They were Roger’s lamps; part of his “household” collection. They had gathered dust along with a variety of stools, hat stands and cat ornaments. Roger was away this weekend, at some antique show so Linda took the opportunity to do some purging.
Composed, she picked up the first and bounced it around in her hands, felt the weight of it before raising it high above her head and smashing it to the concrete. She awarded each piece the same treatment; a fitting retaliation for Roger’s infidelity.
