A lump formed in her throat, and she suddenly felt very uncomfortable standing there, in Brad's shirt, and hotpants so short it looked like she was wearing nothing.

This was her husband, for goodness' sake.
Brad and Grace got married at nineteen, but barely a year later, his hectic tour schedule is already taking its toll on their relationship. When he comes home late one night after being away for months, they practically feel like strangers to one another, and built up frustration and stress soon leads to a fight and lots of tears. Will their marriage survive the night?
An angsty Brad Simpson one shot.
