“I was in a relationship with two men and neither were giving me up.”
That thought flashed through Charlotte’s brain like a bright neon light as she followed her husband out of her marriage counselor’s office.
The office where she’d sat twice a week as she tried to repair the glaring problems in her marriage.
The marriage that she’d fought hard to save to a man that wasn’t fighting alongside her. She’d been lied to, ignored and used as a pawn to climb his ladder to success. Charlotte was broken, not just her marriage.
But, then she met Dr. Montgomery and everything changed.
They say love is patient and kind of course, but what happens when that love comes at the cost of everything?
Love was a force that took no prisoners when it decided to strike and Charlotte had been hit—hard.
By a man that wasn’t her husband.
By the very man who was supposed to save her marriage.
I follow him through his office doors without a word. Under normal circumstances, I’d barely be across the threshold before I’d be pressed up against the wall, with his lips covering mine. He would tell me how much he’s missed me, how much he’s thought about me, how he can’t wait to be inside of me, while his hands find their way into my underwear. Today however, he crosses the room immediately and leans against his desk crossing his arms, a defense mechanism I’m all too familiar with. Does he think he needs to protect himself from me?
“Are you sleeping with her too?” I ask, all of the air leaving my lungs as I brace myself for the answer.
“You’ve got a lot of nerve asking me that.” On the surface, his eyes are cold and angry, but I can see the hurt lurking beneath the layers as he struggles with the fact that my question insinuates that I don’t trust him.
And yet, he didn’t say no.
I find myself wanting to turn around and run. Run far away from Will, from this room, from this whole situation that is getting more complicated by the day. Turn around, Charley. I don’t know how long I’m going to hold up without crying as anxiety blooms in my chest. My mind wanders back to that word on my list. Chaos. In the midst of all of the chaos, being with Will brings me peace, but I’ll be damned if I share him with anyone else. Maybe that makes me a hypocrite, but so be it.
I’ll own it.
“You haven’t answered my question,” I bite out as I attempt to turn my sadness into anger.
“Because it’s fucking insulting,” he says. “And it makes you a hypocrite. You’re married Charlotte.
