Say it with Flowers

The flowers are delivered without a message or recipient.

The husband immediately accuses his wife of having an affair, and in turn she accuses him of having the very same. Before long it has escalated into a vicious argument, where years of unsaid truths are hurled at each other in unison, culminating in him wanting a divorce, further culminating in her also wanting a divorce.

At this natural conclusion their daughter enters the room, woken by the noise. She wanders past them both and finds a card on the floor.

These flowers are for next door she says, before getting a glass of milk and returning back to her bed.
