13th week’s drabble.
It’s when the tones are exacerbated that the air warms up around the actors of the drama of the quarrel. And it no longer matters who is right and who is wrong. The important thing is to win, to get the other to bow to our ideal. And it’s in this moment that screams and beatings come into play, they serve to exaggerate the way we convey our emotions. One can even break objects to release the tension of the moment. Only at the end, when there’s nothing left of the dignity of the person, does one realize the futility of what has been done.
