What Might Have Been

I thought about Beth's words concerning Melissa as well as going straight home. I'd never been unfaithful and it bothered me that Beth maintained such thoughts in her mind. As for Melissa, there'd been a time not too far past when I'd had deep hopes and dreams about the two of us getting married; sharing our lives as we watched our children grow, and yes, even having a child together. But those dreams had been shattered in a matter of seconds like a piece of glass and it seemed senseless to dwell on what might have been; but I couldn't refrain from thinking that it should have been Melissa giving birth to our first child instead of Beth.
