Her head throbbed at the sight of her ruined garden. A smouldering pile of burning plants made her eyes sting from the smoke. The kids were with Mum and the police took Tom away when the neighbours called them.
She stared at the damage as her body shook with rage and grief. He had uprooted the plants by hand when he had used all the weedkiller.
She knelt down when she saw something.

A tiny green shoot had fought through the soil, soaking in the remains of the light. She stroked the leaves and said a prayer for them both.
