He wasn’t silent inside. He was seething, but he couldn’t let Marcia know why. On a whim, he blurted out. “We gotta have another kid... for Giovanna.”
“No way!” exclaimed Marcia, unable to hide her disdain. This allowed Tony’s sublimated anger it’s outlet.
“Yes fucking way!” he responded, moving swiftly to grasp Marcia’s wrists. “And fucking now!”
Marcia was herself caught off-guard and it was Tony who now had the advantage. The last thing she had expected was this.
