“ I want divorce, Silas. ” After she said this out aloud, Silence consumed them both for a while.
Silas was expecting an outburst, an angry tantrum but not this rushed decision of separation for life.
He set his lips in a thin line, his eyes narrowing down to observe her closely. She was avoiding eye – contact with him.
“ Repeat it. ” He spoke slowly, his tone deadly. “ Say it again, Sara. ”
Sara lifted her head, her gaze settling on his light brown orbs. Did he think he could scare her into changing her decision? No, he couldn’t do it anymore.
“ You had a chance. I gave you one. You could have told me, but you didn’t. Why? Because, you didn’t trust me like I did? Or were you just taking advantage of my love? What was it that you tried to achieve by pretending to be someone else? ” Sara got up from the chair, her eyes glaring at Silas

It was the Lion’s den and it would be impossible to leave from here if Silas didn’t let her go.“ Try leaving then. ” Silas challenged, their egos finally clashing.“ So you will do this to me now? ” Sara spoke, hurtfully.“ I have to do this. You are acting like a three year old for God’s sake! It’s marriage. It’s not some dollhouse play where you can leave everything halfway so easily. ” Silas pushed his hair back, his head beginning to hurt due to the stress Sara was causing him.“ First, we will talk it out. If I can’t convince you to forgive me then

She t’ched internally and walked over to him.“ So? Now, you know you can not run away from here. ” He folded his arms over his chest and poked his inner cheek with his tongue.“ Yeah. I know I can’t run away. ” Sara whispered, strolling toward the connected doors to check everything out.“ What are you doing? ” Silas asked suspiciously. She was too calm at this time and to
AUTHOR’S POV“ Where is she? ” Silas asked Jake just as he picked up his call.Early in the morning, he left her home after giving her the card and it’s already 8 in the night but she hadn’t returned home.“ Shopping, Sir. ” Jake replied, grimly.“ Did she buy something? ” Silas loosened his tie and unbuttoned his top buttons after putting the phone on speaker and placed it down on the dressing table.“ We just got here. ” Jake sighed out, making Silas’s hands pause.“ Where was she since the morning? ” Silas felt dumbfounded.Suddenly, his phone dinged and he picked it up from the table to see the message. It was a withdrawal of 10,000,000.Silas stared at message as he heard what Jake was saying. “ After withdrawing money from the card, she donated it all.
