DISCLAIMERS REPOSTED IN PART 0

It wasnt a very satisfactory situation. Cissys growing frustration with
her husband cropped out in unpleasant ways. Logan wished she would
finally get upset enough with him to stop pushing him for sex, but so far
that didnt seem to be happening. Instead, she seemed if anything to be
almost begging for attention to ease the increasing tension between them.
Logan, on the other hand, found her annoyance (and more to the point her
resulting shrewishness) to be a severe turn-off. And as for the premise
that a resumption of marital relations would help soothe his wife and
make their relationship more mutually tolerable well, it felt too much
like coercion to him. Contrarily he refused to comply on general
principles, even when the urge to fuck her just to get her off his case
for a while briefly and occasionally arose.
So. Cicely was unhappy because her studly but unpredictable (and
sometimes even intractable) mate had done absolutely nothing to indicate
that he found her remotely attractive anymore. This left her feeling not

worry that she no longer had sufficient interest to hold her husbands
roving eye. The desperation came out as anger, aimed squarely at the
culprit in the crime of blinding himself to his wifes regained sexual
appeal. Which led to fighting and even a few blows.
Frankly, Cicely was trying to provoke a reaction. Outrage, shouting, a

adrenaline-charged sex that she so missed. Cissy had been placed on the
other team after returning to active duty it being deemed safer not to
send both parents of small children into the same combat situation, just
in case of disaster and she and Logan never trained together any more
either. "Domestic disputes" were the only form of action the pair saw
She just wanted him to *fight back*. Defend himself, show that he cared
what she said and did to him, even try to retaliate. But all she got was
nothing. Passivity, agreement, excuses and not a sign of temper.
Sometimes there were these little ... flashes, of something displeased in
his eyes. But judging by how easily Logan seemed to dismiss the feeling,
it could rate no higher than annoyance.
It was as though nothing she said or did to him struck him as worth being
angered over and this, coming from a man whose favorite hobby seemed to
be daring people to push the chip off of his shoulder, was close to the
