A preview teaser from the upcoming new novel
By D.G. Torrens
The door slamming startled Dena. She spun around when Christian burst into the kitchen in one of his moods, “What’s for dinner,” he demanded.
Dena brushed a stray hair back off her face and inhaled a deep breath. “Pasta,” she answered in a low whisper.
Christian exited the kitchen and made his way into the living room, slumped down on the couch, and waited for his dinner. Dena dished up a plate for Christian and took it to him.
Christian looked up from his mobile phone, glanced at Dena and rolled his eyes, “Is there any salt in this?
“Of course,” she replied.
Christian took a mouthful, ignoring Dena.
“So, how is it?” she asked.
Yeh, it’s okay,” he grunted.
Dena shrugged her shoulders and left the room. I don’t know why I bother. He is so ungrateful and rude, she thought.
Mia ran down the stairs, “Daddy, daddy, guess what?”
Christian’s eyes lit up, “I have no idea. Why don’t you tell me?”
Mia jumped on his lap, excitedly, “I got a head teacher’s award today,” blurted Mia.
Christian kissed Mia on the forehead, “Well done, sweetheart. I am proud of you.”
Dena entered the room and took the plate from Christian. She glanced at the half-eaten pasta, “What was wrong with it?”
“It wasn’t your best dish,” he said, turning away.
Mia ran over to Dena, “Can I sleep with you tonight, Mummy. I had a bad dream last night?”
Dena nodded, “Of course, sweetheart. Now come on, let’s get you bathed and ready for bed.”
Christian studied Dena as she left the living room with Mia, his face flashed with anger.
Dena ran a bath for Mia and waited for her to get in then left her to play for a while. She went into the bedroom and sat down on the king-sized bed with a heavy heart. This was not how marriage was supposed to be. What the hell happened to us? I never signed up for this. Christian is colder than Antarctica. I am so lonely.
