The glass crashed against the floor, sending shards to the edges of the room. Eric stared at it in disbelief. It was a childish action in the midst of what he’d thought was a serious argument, suddenly he was finding it difficult to be angry anymore, a smile threatened to crack his lips. The man standing less than an arm’s length away was still ready to fight, clearly so, in his puffed up stance. Eric held his hands up in a sign of surrender before turning to walk away and effectively ending the altercation.
