BeJeweled: What A Tangled Web We Weave
The Other Wife Excerpt
For the first time in a long time, Olivia felt doubt and fear surge up within her. She never allowed the enemy to take a foothold in her mind. But at this moment, she wondered if Bethany’s words were true. Raymond had never really been open to talking about his feelings over how his first marriage had dissolved. He had shared with her the details behind the divorce, but not all of his true feelings on it. Olivia began to think maybe she had been foolish to get married without insisting on that conversation. She had never taken the time to ensure the man had healed from his pain.
“Ray…do you still have feelings for her?” Olivia asked with uncertainty threaded throughout her voice.
“Look, Ivy. You should know me better than that. Of course not! I mean, I love her for being the mother of my children. But that’s the extent of my feelings for her. I fell out of love with Beth years ago. I told you, I stayed for the kids.”
“Well, you have never wanted to discuss your feelings about what she did to you. You just briefly skim over the subject, but—”
Raymond cut her off. “Look, I don’t want to talk about it now. I’m heading out. I’ll be back later,” he said, getting up and putting his shoes on.
“Where are you going, Ray?”
“To Beck’s Tavern,” he stated, referring to a local bar and grill.
“Don’t you want me to go?”
“Nah, I’ll be alright. I’ll be back.” He gave her a light peck on the lips and left the bedroom.
