Adam stomped into the kitchen, throwing the tickets to tonight’s football game on the dining room table. His body movements alone assured me he was angry. The candle flame flickered widely from the moving air in the room and one of the wings of the bird on my ink drawing was ruined when he plopped down at the table and jarring it.

“Damn Adam! Look what you made me do!” I shouted, watching the flame on the candle flicker even more.

“What the hell is your problem?” He croaked, tapping his foot incessantly moving the table top. The air in the room becoming noticeably thicker.

“You messed up my drawing you birdbrain!” I shouted with livid anger.

“Stop stop stop! We are cutting this part of the scene.”

“Oh hell!” I spit, “This was my favorite part,” throwing the knife at the director and laughing as I watched the rubber prop bounce off his head.
