100 Word Challenge – Pleased

Sheila held her head as she burrowed deeper under the covers. “Some Tylenol-” she croaked.

She sat up slowly to take the pills.

“My first chance to prove Mr. Mathews my worth…the debut of my engagement…introducing my coworkers to my family—and you GET DRUNK?!?!?”

Phillip stomped out.

The tears running down her face were hid by the water her shaking hand spilled.
