I enter my house to see that my mindflayer wife with a crossed look. She doesn't seem to be happy at all. She's usually joyful, but it seems the rain has washed that away. Instead of hearing laughter, I hear held back sobbing.
"Honey," I spoke first, "what's wrong?"
Without a second, she slaps me. hard. As I readjust my face towards her, my wife grits her teeth. Her tears become prominent. The sobbing has become loud.
"Why?!" My mindflayer wife cries. "Why were you so unfaithful?!"
"What," I ask in confusion. "What do you mean by-"
"Shut up!" she yells. "I saw you with that human bitch!"
I think my wife was refering to my co-worker. Yes she is young, but she is not my type of person. I was only talking with her about the company's plans.
I try to place my palm on her cheek, but my wife flicks it off. My face gives a shocked expression in reflex. I try to do it the second time, yet that also is flicked away.
"Quit touching me!" She orders.
"Let me explain," I protest.
"Shut up! I saw you with-"
I have enough of her screaming. I grab her wrists and push her on the wall. My face comes close to my wife's sobbing looks. I know she's conflicted, but I have to explain the situation regardless.
"The woman was a co-worker," I give my answer.
My wife starts to calm down. Her mouth starts to close. The sobbing becomes less frequent.
"Like I said," I remark. "She's only a co-worker. We were discussing business plans and nothing else."
I let my hands and and walk back. My wife starts to calm down. Her breathing becomes slower. Her arms went limp as she breaths.
"Really?" my wife asks.
"That's the case," I answer. "Can we have some dinner, now? I don't want to explain further."
With her calming down, my wife looks towards the ground. When she brought her head up, she show a little smile. I sigh in relief and take her hand. We then went to the kitchen to eat
