His wife wasn’t happy though, she wanted him to spend more time with them but he couldn’t, he had to pay the bills. His wife got in a huge fight with him the one day after he got home. She told him if he doesn’t find a way she was leaving. So he did, he worked harder than ever just so he could come home early but it was at a cost, he worked so hard his hands were bloody at the end of every day. The worst part was that she still wasn’t happy so one day he came home extra early and told his wife to leave, and there he stood with bloody hands saying good-bye
this story developed mainly with the questions about the characters and conflict. this is the original summary/brain storming of my short story, written off the top of my head. so its very short and not detailed, the questions asked about the story are what gives me all the details for the final draft. the details will be very in depth and descriptive almost as if you’re experiencing it. until then this short summary will have to do.
