Gavin and Olivia

Olivia looked pained. "Why didn't you just say something?"

"I tried," Gavin replied. "I tried to change things up several times, but you always insisted that we do the same thing. That frustrated me more than anything else. To make matters worse, you've changed. I've changed."

"What do you mean you've changed?" she asked, a little defensively. "I've changed? How?"

"Liv, our... lack of success... has left you feeling low. I can see the change in your clothes and in your attitude."

"That can't be true!" she exclaimed.

"It is. And it's got to stop."

"Gavin, you're being unreasonable. I still have attractive clothes."

"Prove it," he said with a smirk...

Charles and Eve

Eve approached her husband boldly and put her arms around his neck. "Charles," she started, looking into his eyes, "can't we try?"

Returning her gaze, Charles seemed to consider it for a moment. A brief moment. He looked away. Reaching up, he gently, but firmly pulled her arms from around his neck, ignoring the brush of her breasts against his chest.

He said, "You are beautiful. I noticed. Your scent is... comfortable. But I just can't." He looked away. "I'm going to bed," Charles stated definitively and attempted to move past his wife into the bedroom, but she blocked him gently with an arm.

"Wait honey, I wanted to straighten up a bit, why don't you sit for a second," she said.
