Here is my entry based on:

She loved him and he loved her

but it wasn’t that simple...”

With nuptials strained near to breaking, Dereck set out to end Delilah’s jealous tantrums; he killed the car lights and engine to coast silently into the driveway, slipped his key into the lock, letting himself into the darkened manor six hours late, and was greeted by a prized Louis XVI sèvres whizzing past his head and shattering against the wall along with his hard-won calm.
