Doug had been surprised at the cool reception when Carey came home. He’d expected a big hug and kiss and gotten brushed off. He poked his head into the bedroom, ready to pull it back if she bit it off.

“Is it safe?” he asked.

She was zipping up the suitcase, but it didn’t look empty, bulging slightly. She looked over her shoulder. “Very safe. Here you go.”

He took the bag, looking at it. “What’s this?”

“You’re things. I’ll talk to you later, Doug.” Her ponytail clipped him across the face as she spun, walking away.

What the hell?
