An Exerpt from Tanya

Jed took his hand off Betty’s shoulder and turned to go down the porch steps.

The fight began the second Betty stepped inside.

“You low-bred bitch,” Aaron slurred, lurching forward and hitting her hard across the face. “I’ll teach you to screw with that black bastard. I saw his hand on your shoulder.”

Betty cried out in pain and backed into the corner.

Aaron lunged at her, but never quite made it.

Half way down the porch steps, Jed was having second thoughts about leaving Betty, with Aaron as drunk as he was. He quickly re-climbed the porch steps and waited at the door. When he heard Betty cry out, he barged into the house.

Jed grabbed Aaron by the shirt collar just before he reached Betty again.

“I’ve no use for woman beaters,” Jed roared. “I’m going to thrash you but good.”

Jed hit him a good backhand across the face. Aaron’s head flopped like a rag-doll. Jed hit him several times, alternating the back of the hand with the flat of the hand.

“That’s for beating on your wife,” Jed snarled. He paused for a moment then belted him another good backhand. “And this one is for calling me a black bastard.”

Aaron’s face was a bloody mess. Still grasping him by the collar, Jed dragged him to the wash basin and poured a couple of dippers of water over his head. As Aaron regained consciousness, there was terror in his eyes. Jed lifted him clear of the floor and pinned him against the wall.

“I’ll let you off easy this time with just a good thumping,” Jed said, glowering at him. “If it ever happens again though, I’ll hit you with my fist, not the flat of my hand. If I have to do it again, you’ll be in the hospital for a long time. There’s no excuse what-so-ever for abusing your wife, especially now that she’s expecting. You get the message?”
