I felt exhausted when I reached my apartment.

Anabelle was watching the news as I entered.

“Anabelle!” I called her name but She didn’t reply.

I quickly went to the bathroom, took a shower, and changed into my pajamas.

I laid down on the couch where she sat resting my head on her laps.

She pushed me away from her, and she got up from the chair.

Anabelle left for the bedroom while I got up from the couch and followed her after a few minutes.

She was already tucked in under the blanket. Her eyes were closed.

I tapped her a bit and asked her what the matter was, but she ignored me.

She screamed, “leave her alone,” as I tapped her the second time.

So I grabbed a pillow along with another blanket and went back to sleep on the couch.

I had already fallen asleep when shee woke me up.

“We need to talk.” She said.

“Can’t we talk about whatever it is tomorrow. It’s late and I’m really tired.” I replied

“No! We need to talk now.” She put her hands on her waist as she stood in front of me.

“You’re getting me upset Anabelle! What do you even want to talk about?

“Where did you go to,” she asked.

“I told you I went to see a client”

“It’s another woman right?”

I guess I was already losing my patience when I told her ” Honestly, that’s none of your business.”

“I don’t trust you, Stanley.” She said, ” why did you return late last night. You didn’t even pick my call.”

“You didn’t call me.”

“So I’m a liar?” She replied.

“Anabelle, You’re so insecure and it’s annoying”

“Wait! Did you just say I’m insecure?” She was surprised. “I don’t even care anymore, you should have fun.” She said and went back into the room.

She came out fully dressed a few minutes later.

“Where are you going to this night,” I asked her but she Ignored me and left the apartment.
