Daniel And Kate.

He was waiting for her when she got home, sitting at the kitchen table. “Where were you?”

Kate walks around the table, puts the items of shopping she’d brought in with her away. “Shopping, obviously. And before that I went round to see Tracy.”

"You ‘went round to see Tracy’! Are you sure it wasn’t Trevor?”

"What the hell has got into you, Daniel? I was with my SISTER, Tracy. She’s having a bad time right now, what with Bob hardly ever coming home at night.” Kate gives her husband a hard look. “Speaking of which, where were you? I went to bed after midnight and was up at 7am. You weren’t here either time so....”

"You listen to me, you stupid bitch. Don’t question me about where I’ve been. I’m the man of the house here!” Dan is on his feet, leaning forward to shout in her face.

Kate is too shocked and outraged to back down. “Man of the house! What are we living in here. I thought prehistory was way past. I don’t belong to you!”

"Don’t you, girl? We’ll soon see about that?” Dan raises his fist.

"You do, Dan! You just do! I’m going out, right now, and you’d better be a bit nicer when I get back.”

He grabs for her arm, misses, and she dashes towards the door. "Kate! You get back here," he hollers, only to be answered by the slam of the door.

The honeymoon, it seems, is definitely a thing of the past.
