When Doves Cry

Want to take a load of stuff down to my car.

Scared to go out because the young couple across the hall is screaming at each other (again) and I hear lots of slamming and stomping.

Smiled at them and their 4- or 5-year-old son in the hallway one time and 2 out of 3 in the family gave me looks like I should back off and not make eye contact again.

Waiting to hear the usual ending sound indicating one of them has stormed down to the parking lot.

Buddy's lying on the floor by the front door... blocking/protecting my way, or trying to figure out what all the ruckus is about?

Sorry they're so angry and hurting.

Update - the day after. Father and son playing on common landing area at top of stairs, laughing (as raucously as their other family noise). Mother slightly smiles back at me as we pass in the hallway.
