The Average Day.

Location

Ding, ding, ding, ding,

Car key turns off,

Click.

Home.

Plop, Remote, Mindless stare.

Pots and pans, clang, clang

Dinner?

Fend for yourself.

Grumbling, Sister.

Slam!

Mom.

Dishes, clean counters, Complaining.

Sitting, eating, grumbling sister.

T.v.

Splash, dishes shatter into the sink

Screaming, Physical

Ripped hair, crying, Yelling

SLAM!

Dad.

Click, No T.V

SCREAMING, YELLING

BANG! A flipped table

SMASH! a flying trashcan

Heavy Breathing.

Heavy crying.

Silence.

Creaky couch, a stuffed backpack

Ding, ding, ding

Cranking Motor

Gone.
