The Next Chapter - Prologue

"I don't know what you want from me Danny!"

These were the words that sent Danny Wheeler off like a plane in a tailspin. How could his own wife not understand why he was so upset. I mean it's not like it was their anniversary or anything.

Oh wait, it was.

Danny had to take a deep breath before he said something he'd regret. Unfortunately that didn't seem to work.

"Riley I've been very patient with you, but now I just think … I don't know what I think."

"Wait, is this about that?" Riley questioned.

"No it is not about that, it's about how you don't seem to mind as much as I do, and that bothers me."

"Mind! Of course I mind Danny, it's just that things aren't like they use to be. Everything is different now."

"But it doesn't have to be! It doesn't have to be like this Riley!"

Danny watched as Riley just crossed her arms and let out a breath, that sounded more like an aggravated groan. He couldn't take it anymore, he had to get out of there.

"Where are you going?" Riley asked as he opened the door.

"I don't know." he replied, just as softly as she had asked. And with that he was out the door. He stayed outside the door for a moment, before just sitting down right there in the hallway.

"How did we get like this?" he wondered as he sat there. Trying to remember.
