Baby

She stared at his wedding band among the case of titanium pendants and grew enraged. It was enough that he’d made everything to be her fault. But now, there was his wedding ring sold at the local pawn shop as if it were a way to cash in on his gambling addiction. She slammed a fist down on the counter causing the girl behind it to jump. “Sorry.” she mumbled to the girl, then turned to leave. But instead was stopped dead in her tracks by a couple that had just entered the shop. It was him and he was laughing a carrying on with a tiny waisted blond who was responding to his laughter with baby.
