love the nights which rains , the sound of rain hitting the ground soothes my heart. The smell of the earth so fresh that I always get carried away by it. It was on that night that everything changed. He came home so drunk that he could hardly recognize her. He was shouting at the top of his voice that he awoke all the neighbors. I was sitting there on my bedroom window watching what he was doing. They were quarrelling, the children were crying and they didn't know what to do. I wished I could help. I saw him beating her up so badly in that he didn't have any humanity left in him. I wondered how she was surviving with him. He used to be a good man, but one day he changed. I didn't know that that night he would kill her. How can someone be so good yet evil at the same time!
