"What, are you mad at me?" Daisy asked, taking a few quick steps forward in an attempt to grab Edward by the arm. To her surprise, he shook her hand off as soon as she touched him.

"Do you have any idea why I'm mad at you?" Edward stopped abruptly in his tracks. He turned to shoot Daisy a cold glare before he resumed storming off upstairs. The dim light from the hallway on the second floor cast his elongated shadow upon Daisy, whose heart sank at the obvious distaste in his tone.

"How would I know? You've always been so unpredictable, " Daisy murmured to herself, increasing her pace to try to catch up with Edward.

"Don't think that I can't hear you. I'm not deaf, " Edward said in sharp tone. He pushed the door of their bedroom open and walked directly to the window with his back to Daisy, who was trailing a few close steps behind him. A few moments of stony silence immediately filled the room.

"What is the matter with you, Edward? I told you that I was having dinner with someone and you said you were okay with that. What are you giving me shit for? It was only dinner with an old friend. For Christ's sake, will you grow up and deal with it like a man?"

Daisy's anger flared up. She had never been a pushover. The only reason she put up with a lot things she hated and gave way to Edward was because she felt that she owed him. As a military officer, she was always on call, ready to grab her coat and head out to deal with all kinds of emergencies. For that reason, she had to sacrifice a lot of time with her family. It was true that she had been working hard to balance her work and her family, but she didn't want a relationship in which her efforts weren't recognized or appreciated.

"Yes, I'm okay with you going out to have dinner with your friend, but I'm not okay with you staying out so late and not even calling me once to let me know that you're all right! Fine, I can move on from that. But when you finally showed up, you ignored me in favor of having pleasant conversation with another man. I saw you smiling brightly at him while I was just a few feet away - like I didn't even exist at all! How do you expect me to

ssed with the keen gazes directed at him. Despite how much attention he was gaining with his appearance, Daisy still chose to ignore him in favor of talking to another man. A surge of resentfulness rose to his chest. Head held high like an arrogant prince, he strode through the crowd in the lobby and went straight to his private room.

In the bathroom, Daisy took a long hot bath. The lavender essence that she added to the water soothed her nerves. After her whole body had gone lax, she finally stepped out of the tub. To her surprise, Edward still hadn't returned to their room. Letting out a light sigh, she decided to go and find him. How could she stand not speaking with him? She regretted her aggressive reaction when Edward aired out his grievances earlier. After all, he was only upset because he cared about her a great deal.

The events of tonight convinced her even more that men acted like children when they were upset, obstinate and unreasonable. She didn't let him get away with his unfair accusations against her because part of her wished to help him grow out of his capricious behavior by reasoning with him. Unfortunately, the tactic seemed to have backfired. Not only did he not reflect on his actions, but his temper seemed to have gone worse. In the end, she was the only one left to clean up the mess. She groaned at the thought of long hours of sweet-talking him just to get things normal between them again.
