No sound but the boiling of water

The shuffle of my feet on the floor

The chop of the knife against the board

The door opens

Footsteps clutter the other room

Silence

“Welcome home,” I call

SIlence

“I’m in the kitchen.”

SILence

“Hamburgers for dinner.”

SILEnce

“Can you set the table for me?”

SILENce

The footsteps come behind me.

SILENCe

“I put the plates on the counter.”

SILENCE

Large hands wrap around my throat.

My arms flail pitifully

While the kitchen blurs and fades.
