Teaser Tuesday: Bittersweet Symphony

Hey, everyone!  This snippet is from a scene in Bittersweet Symphony that I've daydreamed about for over a year. This book! I swear it gets me in the FEELS every time. My Cooper *insert swoon here*

This is from a conversation between Caylee and Cooper's mom, Heather, where she asked about the broken shadow box with Cooper's medals hanging on the wall . . .

(The following is unedited ... be gentle *winks*)

          “Cooper did this, didn’t he?” What started out as a guess became more like a fact, my gut telling me my assumption was right.

          “Bryce had found them discarded in the back of Cooper’s closet one day. It bothered him that his brother didn’t want to display them or even talk about it so he brought them here. It was my idea to have them professionally mounted. We wanted Cooper to see how proud we were of him.”

          Dread sat in the pit of my stomach like a heavy stone. Knowing Cooper as long as I did, I could only imagine his response.

          Scratch that, I could see what his response was without being told.

          “He came over one night for dinner and like a fool, I presented my son with the shadow box. For the rest of my life, I will never forget the drastic change that came over him. It was the first time I realized just how deep his injuries went . . . that it went beyond the physical. It destroyed me to see how lost and angry he’d become.”

          Caught up in my own thoughts, it was my turn to gently finger the jagged cracks in the glass. Cooper had done this. “He carries so much.”

          “Too much. Standing there, helpless to comfort my son, his father and I listened as he ranted and railed . . . all the bitterness and rage he’d kept bottled inside spewing outward. It wasn’t until he punched at the glass, blood dripping from the broken skin on his hands, that we finally stepped forward. Trevor crushed Cooper to his chest and simply held him while his son cried.” Tears broke free from Heather’s eyes, falling over her cheeks, her bottom lip quivering. “I could go a lifetime and never see that again.”

That was the question I ask the doctor, he never answer his response was did you want to lost your husband? I immediately reply no I can't afford to lose him. After the operation my husband came back to live and was healthy I was also OK with the instruction given to me by the doctor, after 3 months my husband came home with another lady telling me, that is our new wife that will give us kids and take care of us, that was how I was confused and started crying all day, that was how my husband ran away with his new wife cleanable. Since then I was confuse don't know what to do that was how I went back to the doctor and tell him everything, he told me that, this is not just an ordinary it must be a spiritual problem that was how he gave me this Email: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com that I should tell he all my problem that he can help that was how i contacted he and I do as instructed.
