Brewing Storms (Sense & Change) by Petra Creffield

She could sense the change in him, his mood shifting from the light to the dark
Brooding, silent, banging doors, she knew the storm was coming soon
Should she run, escape, get somewhere far away and safe?
Yet to leave him alone would only make her a more likely target
She knew she would get it anyway, so she may as well stay
At least that way she could protect the few possessions they had left
All others already smashed up in his storms
She made him food and stayed silent
Nervous that her voice alone could act as the trigger
They ate in silence.
