I am up by choice, sorta, at this hour. I came to a bit and saw that I had an email. It was from my friend/coworker. She emailed me twice through the night. The asshole tried killing her. I really can't call her at this hour since this all occurred just a couple of hours ago. I'm sure they all passed out. I don't know what to do here. Parts of me say call the cops. Other parts just want me to call their local domestic abuse shelter and get her a spot warmed up. I just know I can't go back to sleep.
He tried to kill her. Those words are burned in my eyes.
