A cup flew over Jack's head just as he ducked.
"George, please," their mother said, "leave the children alone."
"I'll do whatever I want, Gina," their father yelled back. He picked up a bowl and threw it at her.
"Leave her alone!" Jack said, standing up from where he was crouched on the floor.
"Jack, take your brother upstairs," Gina said.
"Come on Kale."
Kale followed his brother up the stairs silently.
They heard their father still screaming at their mother, and the crash of something hitting the floor.
