Sonia's Stare

Sonia looked at me from across the room with an icy cold stare. I could tell she was angry with me and I would like to say I do not care. Unfortunately, I do.
“Sonia, why do you stare at me so?” I asked.
Yet she would not answer. She was still upset about our disagreement. Could I help it if we did not see eye to eye? I had tried to explain on many occasions; how much I loved her.
“Sonia, my love, I am sorry if I have hurt you.” I offered.
Still my stubborn wife would not respond to I anything I said. She sat there motionless; her sneer-twisted face mocking me into anger. She loves to anger me. Some say I have issues with my temper, but that is not the truth. Sonia knows why my temper can get the best of me and there she sits; tempting me more and more.
“Sonia enough, I do not deserve this kind of treatment!” I raged.
Sonia did not even tremble. I could see in her eyes how thoroughly she enjoyed this. As my anger increased, I knew I could not take much more of this.
“Sonia, if you still love me you will answer me!” I roared.
Sonia sat there, unaffected by my emotion.
“Sonia, do you love me?” I inquired.
For the first time since our disagreement Sonia responded; she turned her cheek at my request for her love. I could no longer continue without her affection. I retrieved my blade from my pocket and raised it to my throat.
“Farewell, Sonia. If you no longer love me then all is lost” I declared. I slid the frigid blade against my delicate neck. A gush of warmth rushed over my hand and down my chest. As I fell to the ground and began to choke, I watched as my blood pooled on the floor. Strange, I thought: why are there two puddles of blood where I lay? I looked up at Sonia who sat just three feet away. She too had a ribbon of red around her neck.
Now here I lay dying, no more shouting or crying and one thing I am confused to admit; Sonia never spoke through any of it.
