Chapter 16 Why Not Go Get the Certificate
Elisa pursed her lips. Was this all inevitable?
She had intended to ask Gareth when they should divorce, but for some reason he wanted her to come in person. She had no intention of staying any longer and turned to go back to her room.
Her vision spun and before she knew it, Gareth had pulled her into an empty room!
He slammed the door shut!
Gareth held both her wrists in his hand.

Eying the paranoid man before her, she frowned and forced a smile, “Mr. Wickam, what are you doing?”
He was the one who initiated the divorce. He was the one who wanted to be with Linda. Why was he acting this way because of one meal with Will?
She almost mistaken his actions for him having feelings for her.
But she remembered the time they spent together, and she would not make the same mistake again. She wasn’t naïve to believe that she’d be able to have his heart.
She had given up.
Searching her eyes, he saw that the only thing she felt for him right now was annoyance. Gareth’s eyes were like shards of ice, and his voice mirrored that, “Elisa Benett, the divorce hasn’t even been finalised yet. Why are you so impatient?”
Elisa laughed in her ire, “How am I being impatient? Between the both of us, who’s being more impatient?”
While they were married, he had always put Linda first. She only got in touch with Will because of work! And besides, this was after they had gotten divorced. This was the first time she had ever found Gareth to be unreasonable!
Gareth’s eyes never left her face. It was as if he was trying to burn holes into her skin.
But Elisa was unafraid. “If Mr. Wickam truly thinks that I am going too far, how about we each do our part and choose a time when the both of us can go get the divorce certificate?”
“Elisa Benett!”
Gareth clenched his teeth. Seeing the disdain in her eyes, he sneered, “Do you think I won’t do it?”
Elisa raised an eyebrow at him, “Then do it.”
Her heart ached whenever she saw him. But after three years of torture and being ignored, she had learned and grown from it. It no longer hurt as much as it once did.
