Roll of the Dice

By Louise Callan

Sweat forms beads on his forehead.
Sheila will surely leave, take the kids.
What will the neighbors say?
The shame.
Why can’t I stop?
Stupid, stupid man.
I need this win.
An inviting voice ushers across the table, “Are you ready sir?”
Silence.
“Yes,” he replies. “Roll the dice.”
