“You should just let it go. You can't fight Sullivan's family all by yourself.” Dolly had been cautioning Henrietta, she knew her mind was made up however she wouldn't give up on her. They had been friends since highschool, if there was anyone that knew Henrietta better than anyone it was her.
“I'm not doing it alone. I'm doing it for our son. Richard can throw away our family like that, I want my family back.” Henrietta seethed threateningly.
“You should have given it a second thought when you signed the divorce contract with him. He was ready to give you twice the money the company offered but you chose the contract over your family.” She remembered knowingly.
Henrietta glared at her, she winked at her surly and took her hand from the maid that was polishing her nails. “Leave!” She commanded imperatively. After the maid had left the living room, she gazed at her and
Devyn dropped the magazine on the couch then gazed at Richard at once. He was positively apoplectic with rage after hearing what he intended to do. Richard could see the fury in his eyes however he chose to ignore apathetically. Jeremy didn't bother to utter a word, he knew there was nothing he'd say to change his mind.“What the hell is wrong with you, Richard?” He snapped irksomely.“Just let it go, Dev. Richard won't change his mind.” Jeremy eventually said, despite the tension in the room he was calm and relaxed.Devyn huffed with annoyance. “You're not stopping the wedding, are you?”Richard scrolled down his contact list, scanning for Charlene's digits. Finally he hesitated before clicking on it. “I have the right to stop the wedding if I want to. It's not like I'm stopping it forever, I have to handle the emergency immediately. I can't avoid losi
Apart from the couple's families, the numbers of the guests that were present were half quarter of the choir. The priest was standing on the altar, he looked at the couple standing before him for a moment before proceeding with the marriage oath, it was the next thing after the exchange of the wedding rings.“Are you Richard Sullivan ready to take Charlene as your wife, forever during happy and hard times?” The priest gazed at Richard steadily. He expected him to answer him immediately but Richard's mind was far gone.An hour ago, before the bride arrived he made a strict order that whenever Henrietta arrived in the church she should be taken away and locked up in a room. He wouldn't want her to ruin his plan, he couldn't avoid getting his father pissed off again.When the priest noticed he wasn't listening he repeated and that jolted him out of his thoughts. He looked at him and glanced at Charlene, he
Charlene woke up to the sound of her ringtone, she roamed her hand on the bed searching for her phone, she slowly opened her eyes when she was unable to reach the nightstand. She rolled over in the king size bed and took her phone on the nightstand, before she could pick up the call, it had ended.She put the phone down on the bed, stretched her body and yawned lazily. “Gosh, it's Monday.” She covered her mouth with her hand when she yawned while looking around the room. She climbed down the bed and wore her flip flop slippers. She had spent two nights in the mansion, ever since he left she hadn't heard from him.Charlene doffed her clothes and went to the bathroom naked, she stepped under the shower and pressed a button on the wall. The cold water fell freely down to her body, she allowed the water to soothe her skin while relaxing to the coldness of it.In a few minutes she was done with everyth
The time flew faster than expected, she didn't tell him anything about it. Although Charles wasn't going to give up on advising her, hoping that she'd listen to him and do what was right. After school he drove her back to the mansion. Charlene alighted from the car, she waved a hand at him cheerfully before making her way into the mansion. As usual maids were seen walking around, busy with one or two things but something wasn't right, Charlene concluded in her thought. The seriousness and their focus on what they were doing were quite different from the past two days she had spent in the mansion. “Welcome back, ma'am.” A maid greeted, she was on her way heading toward the stairs but she halted. Charlene nodded once. “Would you like me to prepare the bathtub for your bath?” “No, you don't have to.” She replied and took the elevator upstairs. Before walking into her room she halted at the doorway, she looked behind her and noticed th
Muddled, Kathleen stared intently at Charlene who was contemplating a perfect excuse to give everyone around the table. She ran her right hand on her left hand, she sluggishly moved it to her lap and grinned anxiously.“I took it off this morning while I was taking my bath, I totally forgot to wear it after I was done.” She framed a lie and pouted her lips cutely.“Oh,” Luciana scoffed softly. “You know Charlene, it's your ring and you ought to wear it always.”Charlene nodded her head docilely. She picked the cutlery and began to eat, she listened to their conversation but she never uttered a word even if a question was directed to her. She nodded to every question and shook her head if it was the perfect response to give.Finally everyone left, Charlene bid her parents goodnight before returning inside alone. She left Richard behind and went to their
She couldn't wait for them to reach the dormitory, she was restless and anxious. She wouldn't imagine the ring being sold out to someone else. Fiona led them to the dorm she knew they could find Tina, unfortunately she wasn't at her friend's place.“Are we supposed to wait for her? What if she didn't show up? I want my ring today, I can't imagine going home without it.” Charlene seethed grimly. Javier informed Charles about the ring, he told them to go ahead he would catch up with them later.Fiona contemplating another place she could be then Sarah's residence rang in her head. She abruptly looked at Charlene. “I think I know another place. Sarah's apartment isn't far from here, we can probably catch up with her before she leaves. She usually goes there if she has nothing to do on campus.” Fiona enunciated thoughtfully.“Then we should head over now.” Charlene interrupted desper
“Get out of my office, Devyn!” Richard looked up at him with a cold face. He was upset because Devyn was distracting him and he never gave him a chance to focus on his work. Devyn laughed out loud mockingly, he tapped the tip of his index finger on his desk.“Did Charlene know you're cheating on her?” Devyn repeated the question again, he knew Richard might hit him for repeating the question but he wasn't going to stop until he answered him.“Get out!” He said in an imperative manner, he rose abruptly and glared at him.“I will once you answer my question.” Devyn sat comfortably in the chair and put his hands behind his neck. “I thought you've changed. Seriously, you still fuck around after getting a wife. Tsk, you never improve, Richard.” He hissed loudly.“The last time I checked I'm still single.”“S
Charlene laid in the bed without making any attempt. She would rather pretend to be sleeping than get up and share a glance with him. Ever since he returned home and found Miguel with her, she had been avoiding him as if both of them were never living together. Nevertheless it was what he wanted and she was going to respect his choice.She could hear his footsteps approaching, perhaps coming out of the closet. Charlene closed her eyes tightly and adjusted in her sleeping position. Richard walked over to the bed, he picked his phone on the nightstand, just before walking out he looked over. There was no affection in his eyes, he looked at her plainly and tediously.“We have a party to attend tonight, are you coming with me?” Richard said calmly, he knew she was pretending and he wouldn't bother to do as if he knew. He waited for her response but he did not get a word or sound from her. “Are you listening?”
