I'm not even sure how many chapters this is going to be, but anyway.. enjoy! 

I laid Sofia back down in her crib and walked out into the living room where Mark was at. "I'm fine. Just another fight, that's all." He shook his head and walked over to me. "Cal, you don't have to lie to me. I know it was more than that." I sighed and sat down on the couch. It was more than that, but saying it out loud would make me replay everything that happened in my head, which I didn't want. But it was Mark. I couldn't just lie to him and tell him that I was perfectly fine, when we both knew that I wasn't.

"The fight got pretty bad.. worse than other fights. And her ring.. she threw it at me." I was trying so hard not to cry. Just thinking about what happened was making me even more upset. Mark sat down next to me and wrapped his arm around me. "What were you fighting about?" I looked up at him, tears filling my eyes. "Cal, tell me." I looked down for a minute then looked back up at him before I finally spoke. "We..We were fighting about you." He looked confused at first but then after a minute I'm pretty sure that he finally understood. "She said that I'm with you too much.. and that you have no boundaries. I tried telling her that, no, that wasn't true.. but that made her even more angry. That I was sticking up for you instead of taking her side on this. That's when she threw her ring at me and stormed off. I..I'm not sure where she went, or if she will even be back. This wasn't what I wanted, Mark.."

"It wasn't what you wanted? What do you mean?" "I never wanted a marriage like this. I always pictured a happy marriage, one with no fights, we'd aways be trying to make each other happy, and our kids would be running around outside, we would just all be happy.. you know? Just a happy marriage. Not perfect, but still great. But no, that's not what I got. I got the complete opposite." And that's when the tears started to stream down my face. I've cried in front of Mark before, but not like this. He wrapped his arms around me even tighter and kissed my head gently. "Shh, calm down, Callie. It's all going to be okay. I promise."

sdfasdf ahhhhhhhhhhh ugh. Ring in the face is basically a slap in the face if I ever heard of one.

I'm glad Callie recognizes that it won't be perfect, but it's reasonable that she wants a relatively happy marriage, especially after what she went through with George. Mark would give that too her though, I think. :) MOAR please? :P
