I thought my neighbors were a very happy go lucky couple. One night my wife and I were in the back yard having a drink by the fire. My neighbor didn’t see us I’m taking it him and his wife had been drinking quite a bit. We heard the argument going on all of a sudden he hit her, I mean bang right in the face and she went down. I jumped from my chair and ran to the front door ringing the bell he finally answered. I asked if everything was okay of course he replied what would make you ask. Not to pry to much I asked if him and his wife wanted to join us for a drink. He thanked me and said his wife was in bed, everything seemed ok so I left. My wife was quite concerned we stayed outside for sometime and keep an eye on their house just in case. Next day my wife met his wife outside, she was wearing sunglasses assuming he gave her one good shiner. Thay talked for awhile my wife mentioned that if she ever needed anything to come right over. About 2 weeks later she left him good for her a man shouldn’t do that.
Let me set the scene… a few hours earlier I had been violently beaten in the head with fists by someone who outweighed me by at least 20 pounds. My dad was on the phone with me when the attack happened and said he’d drive up from about 2 hours away. I think he’s coming to help me so I can go to the emergency room and get checked out since I couldn’t leave my kids home alone.
