I spent the whole morning cooking. When my husband came home, he was in a rage, I don’t know why he was angry or who upset him. I would usually set out the food on the table for him to eat, but I wasn’t expecting him home so early. Our newborn was fussing and it took me some time to get the food ready. He grew more and more impatient that he took the pot filled with food from the stove and threw it outside. I ran after him, trying to stop him. I cried and begged him to stop. He slapped me and left home.
