Joe was beaming with joy on his last day of college. He rushed home to celebrate with his girlfriend.
His excitement soon vanished.

He watched in silence as she slammed down everything around her. He decided, “I can’t take this anymore.”
As Joe packed his clothing into a small bag, Lisa could still be heard breaking items in the other room.
He was invisible to her, as he walked out the door, never to return.
