“I’ve already tore it apart,” shared Shane calmly.

Natalie frowned and asked, “What’s the point? We’ve already reached the point where divorce is the only route. I honestly don’t see any alternatives.”

“Of course there is. I know that I made a mistake earlier and broke your heart because of it. It’s only natural that you want a divorce, but that is no longer an issue, so why are you still insisting on getting a divorce?” demanded Shane as he clenched his fists. He simply could not understand why.

“It’s simple, really,” answered Natalie before she took a deep breath and smiled wryly. “I’m insisting on getting a divorce because the pain is etched into my heart. I can’t pretend that nothing had happened just because the misunderstanding is cleared. Besides, this incident taught me something crucial.”

“And what is that?”


Natalie tilted her head down and replied, “Trust. We do love each other, but Shane, don’t you see? There is no trust between us. You don’t actually trust me, and that is the root cause of this incident.”

“I know that I was wrong. I should’ve trusted you, but I promise that this won’t happen again,” declared Shane before he reached out to hold her hand.

Natalie stepped back and pointed out, “Don’t be so certain. No one knows what will happen in the future. What if someone malicious comes up with something once more to cause a misunderstanding between us? I don’t think that you’d trust me enough to not fall for their tricks.”

What she needed was someone to trust her completely.
