“I want justice, damnit!” she shouted. The judge ate another grape.
“Go away! You give me a headache.”
“Fine. See you tomorrow!” she slammed his ornately carved office door. He frowned. She annoyed him. She had visited every day for a month with the same stupid request. He now dreaded coming to work. And a widow too. A peon. Give the hell up already!

“Justice, damnit!” Slamming her shoe on his desk. He awoke thinking he’d been shot.
“ENOUGH! You win.” he hurled the word like a bullet, signing her document so violently the paper ripped.
“Thank you.” she smiled calmly.
