She stood with her hands thrust to the bottom of the sink, her fingers pressing against the stainless steel in the tepid water. Her eyes looked out of the window but she couldn't focus on anything beyond the cobwebs and desiccated insects wrapped in ghostly threads at her eye level. She had asked her husband to do something about the outside of the windows but he always had other things to attend to. He'd even suggested she go out with a broom and sweep the mess away but he knew she wouldn't, couldn't leave the front door. She wondered whether he'd said it to hurt her, or whether he really was just absent minded.
