Then he spoke: “I can’t believe it!” “That little sneak took it all!”
He looked around his barren house, all that remained was a lone picture of him, his wife, and son. A reminder of what he had lost.
Composing himself, Tim began to recall the events that had led up to the robbery.
He had received a promotion at the ad agency and his colleagues wanted to take him out to celebrate. They all wanted to go to the new bar around the corner. Tim knew that he should have politely declined, but they kept insisting. He went along with it, thinking he would just have a ginger ale.
The ginger ale turned into a mixed drink and the another and another, until he couldn’t remember how many he had. Tim stumbled into the house after midnight. He tried to be quiet, but ended up waking his wife Tina anyway. She was shocked to see him intoxicated.
“Tim you promised,” were the words that she uttered. They rang in his ears like an alarm that he couldn’t silence. They had argued before he went to sleep in the guest bedroom.
Later that morning he went to work. When he returned home with roses and an apology, she wasn’t there to receive them. She, their son, and the furnishings were gone. Tim began to cry again, before pulling out his cell phone. He left a voicemail: “Bill I had a relapse, can you meet me at my house?” is the message he left his sponsor. That little sneak Tim had referred to earlier was alcohol(ism).
