Prompt for January 18, 2015

Complete the short story / flash fiction, that has the following first introduction:

The whiskey stained kitchen table lay on its side, knocked over as Sharlene fled. The banging of the screen door in the wind and the sound of approaching sirens were all he heard from what had been a busy neighbourhood prior to the mine closing.  The crying and sounds of bone hitting flesh had long faded away.  He brought the glass of whiskey up to his mouth and absently noticed the bloody lines extending from his knuckles down to the bottom of the glass.  “I’m sorry,” he said to the wind as he brought up his hand holding the gun.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
