"The Beginning of the Rest of Our Lives"
Something was wrong. Kayla had been basically ignoring me for a week. She would barely talk to me or even look at me. I was really starting to get scared. I didn’t even know what I did.
Just then she walked passed me without even glancing up. She had Mary on her hip and she was heading towards the kitchen. Without thinking I just followed behind her silently. She was fixing Mary a bottle.
“Hey,” I said quietly.
“Hi,” she said back without looking up at me.
“What’s wrong with you,” I asked her.
“Nothing,” she said back quietly.
“Something is. You haven’t talked to me in a week,” I said frustrated.
“I’ve just been quiet,” she said with a shrug as she started feeding the baby.
“That’s bull crap,” I said.
“It’s not,” was all she said.
“Did I do something wrong,” I begged as I walked over to her. When I reached out to touch her she jerked back.
“No,” she said as she walked away.
“Kayla you’re scaring me,” I told her quietly.
“I’m fine. I’m just moody,” she said as she sat down.
“This is not just moodiness. Something is wrong,” I told her.
“It’s not,” she said without looking up at me. Without thinking I punched the wall as hard as I could. I left a big hole in it and Kayla jumped.
“Fine,” I said as I walked out of the room. She never made a move to stop me.
“What happened,” my mother asked as she ran up to me.
“I just put my hand through the wall,” I said as I looked down at my throbbing hand.
“Why,” she asked surprised.
“Because Kayla won’t look at me or even talk to me,” I said sadly.
“She’s just still hurt,” she said with a sigh.
“You know about this,” I asked her wide eyed.
“Yeah,” she said nodding.
“What did I do,” I begged of her.
“You offered marriage because of the baby,” she said.
