The Conclusion of the Terrifying Glimpse

I knew enough to expect a room full of marital strife when I came downstairs to visit Richard and Susan, but I also knew that she made really excellent cocktails.

I finished my martini quickly and wished the two of them a good night. I walked up to my apartment, put on a Billie Holiday record, and fixed myself another drink. Reclining on my couch, I thought about her, the only girl I ever think about, and sighed. I fell asleep and dreamed that we were happily married and always good to each other.
