A work in progress

“Please stop screaming. Please?” It felt like I’d asked that a million times of her. She just wouldn’t stop. I’d tried speaking calmly, I’d tried threatening her, bribeing her. Nothing worked. She just kept screaming.
“If you don’t stop I will hit you.”
Nothing.
This was getting ridiculous. I could feel a headache starting up from the horrid noise she was makeing. So I hit her. It stopped, for a moment at least. Then she kept on screaming.
“Oh to hell with it.” Sighing, I left her room, locking the door behind me and shutting out that terrible noise she was makeing.
God this was going to be a long night.
