“Listen I don’t care what ya’re going to do, but he must not know the truth ya’ know that if that happens both will be dead!” yelled Lureen and she hanged up the phone. She was shaking and took a cigar and started smoking and went to the bar and served a glass of whiskey.

“How She is going’ to tell me is my fault? When is her it was her idea!” Lureen said drinking her whiskey.

“Lureen, what is all this noise ya’ are making?” Jack asked he heard Ennis name on the conversation and he related Junior with Alma Jr., Ennis’s first daughter, so he was wondering what it had to be with her conversation.

“Jack! I thought that you were eatin’!” said Lureen with her eyes wide open and she was scared and was shaking the double.

“I SAID WHAT THAT CONVERSATION WAS ABOUT?” Jack yelled to Lureen he was upset that she was trying to go around the subject.

“Jack it was nothing to be worried about business stuff!” said Lureen nervous.

“LUREEN YA’ KNOW THAT I KNOW ALL THE PERSONS WE DO BUSINESS WITH! I DON’T REMEMBER AN ALMA BEERS ON THE LIST” He yelled again he was extremely upset Lureen was thinking he was stupid but he knew what he heard.

“Jack, please calm you down! It is a new, a new investor! Yes a new investor we have!” she said trying to think faster and find a way to get out of the mess.

“Is that so? Then what it had to be Ennis Del Mar name in the conversation if it was a new investor?” said Jack with a sarcastic tone, he new well that there were no investor at the company and that the only owners were them.

“ Ennis Del Mar Jack? I didn’t said that it must had being you thinking in your old love I didn’t mention that queer” Lureen said angry but as soon she said queer she saw Jacks big hand on her face and throwing her to the floor.

“DON’T YA’ EVER SAID THAT ABOUT ENNIS NOT IN YOUR FUCKIN’ LIFE” he yelled enraged.

“ENNIS WAS THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED IN MY LIFE AND YA' DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY NOTHING AGAINST HIM!” Jack yelled again while Lureen was on the floor crying




Bobby heard the noise and went to the living room when Maria closed the room with and stood in front of him..

“Mire niño Bobby no entre! Entre marido y mujer nadie se mete!”(Look Little Bobby don't enter there! Between husband and wife no one mess around) she said in Spanish

“But Maria! They are my parents!” Bobby said but Maria just moved her head to the left and the right.

“They are but you must not interfere in their problems! Now go to you college if something happens I’ll call you!” she smiled to him

“I swear that in one hour nothing would be remembered” she added.

It was always like that Maria always tried to make Bobby not interfere in the fights between Jack and Lureen, she was a Mexican woman that believed that kids should not interfere in their parents fight because they will be under those fights later and would be forced to make a choice.

Bobby went to his car and left the house straight to his college hoping that his parents wouldn’t kill each other.

“YA’ HIT ME JACK! YA’ HIT ME! BOBBY PLEASE HELP ME YOUR DAD WANT TO KILL ME” Lureen yelled crying.

“DON’T MESS BOBBY IN THIS PROBLEM! IT IS BETWEEN YA’ AND ME ANSWER WHY YA’ MENTION ENNIS’S NAME?” Jack asked yelling to her who was on the floor crying with here hand on the face.

“I HATE YA’! YA’ ARE A MONSTER YA’ ARE A BASTARD! YA’ NEVER LOVED ME! YA' ARE QUEER!” Lureen yelled at him throwing him the empty glass of whiskey.

In his rage he went straight to Lureen he raised his hand and slapped her face six times.He broke her nose, Lureen was able to be heard screaming and crying all over the house while Maria, who was cleaning the kitchen, just raised the volume on the radio.

For Lureen this was her biggest fear, Jack had never hit her in all their marriage and she was now being hit by him thanks to Alma's beautiful plan. It brought her an old memory of his dad who used to send her mother to the hospital because she always complained that his dad was an alcoholic. He used to have lots of lovers, female lovers, and when her mother tried to leave him he broke her arm, two ribs and her nose and said that she fell on the tub.

Lureen was crying she was in a marriage that was just as the one of her parents now, only that Jack didn’t love her at all and that she was trying to get him by force.

“JACK STOP PLEASE! DON’T KILL ME! DON’T KILL MY MOM DADDY!” Lureen yelled. Immediately Jack released her, he remembered that John Twist was as aggressive as Lureen's father with his mother, he fell down onto the floor and started crying.

“What happened to us? Lureen what we have become?” he cried while he was trying to hold her hand.

“I don’t know ya’ anymore Jack! We are strangers now!” she cried looking at him.

But Jack was extremely upset with him he stand up and when to his room and started packing his things, he knew where he was going to go, he need some time he was going to Lightning Flat, he was going home.

“Jack! What are ya’ doing! Are ya’ leaving me?” she cried while she was trying to stop him packing his clothes.

“I can’t stand this anymore Lureen! I need to go, need to free my mind tell Bobby I’ll back on a couple of weeks I think!” he said to her closing his back while Lureen was crying behind him. He went to his car put his stuff and left the place he was going to the place that he once called home. He was going to home after almost eight years.

"Jack is going to lightning flat! He’ll find his tombstone there! He’ll find out everything!" Lureen said crying she went to her car and started following Jack she was not going to let that happen.
