The quarrel

Updated on February 27, 2012

Words fly back and forth

Some are good, but some are not

They quarrel verbally

As they drive somewhere.


He tells her things she didn't know already

She listens intently

She's incensed.

She wants to cry but she stays strong.


The drive is short

She drops him at the place he has to be.

As she drives home, she has tears in her eyes

What will she do about the situation now?


She gets home.

She cries, then realizes that crying won't help her.

She resolves to fix the situation

Partly with stubborness, partly with non-compliance.


“Let him get home,” she thinks to herself.

“I'll make him wish he never did say those things to me.”

Strong woman? No.

Stubborn woman? Definitely, yes.

      Nicely done throughout. You tell quite a story in just a few lines, of course you do leave us hanging cause we don't know how the argument ends ;) Voted up.

      yeah, tenacity pays off later, when a woman is strong willed and refused to submit to the man...
