Chapter 24 I’m Out of Misery
Thank you for reading this post, don’t forget to visit Again!
George was embarrassed to lose the race. After all, there were so many people around. He couldn’t believe he
lost to a woman!
He met Nydia’s defiant eyes and immediately said, “You just want money. I have quite a lot!”
Nydia snorted, and George looked at her irritably. “But remember, that thing will be mine!”
Nydia spat, “In your dreams!”
George went off in a huff.
Nydia was in a good mood. She took Gloria by the hand and laughed, “Honey, let’s go!”
Gloria didn’t say anything but followed her into the car. With her hands on the steering wheel, Nydia turned to look at Gloria. “Wanna eat out? Or you gonna cook for your husband tonight?”
Gloria froze for a moment before saying, “Let’s eat out.”
Nydia started the engine and looked at Gloria in great surprise. “Really?”
Gloria nodded. Leaving the engine idling, Nydia stared at her. “Are you sure, honey? Every time I wanna take you out, you say you have to cook for him. You want to be a good wife at home. You can’t stay out at night. What’s happening today?”
Gloria pursed her lips. A look of annoyance flashed across her face.
It was such a shame that she had wasted a lot of time on Jordy.
Nydia noticed something wrong and looked at her with concern. “Did he bully you?”
Gloria shook her head. “Let’s go. Why don’t we eat at your house?”
Gloria changed the subject, and Nydia felt worse. She grabbed Gloria’s hand and said seriously, “What happened? You… two had a fight? How could he go so far?”
Gloria smiled, “Have you ever seen him and me fight?”
Jordy never talked to Gloria. How could they have a quarrel?
Nydia frowned as if she had thought of all this. She asked worriedly, “So what happened…?”
“We’re getting divorced.”
Nydia was Gloria’s best friend, and Gloria wasn’t going to keep it from her.
Nydia grabbed the steering wheel, and her eyes widened in shock. She would have stood up had it not been
for the small space in the car.
“We’ve sighed the divorce papers and are waiting for the divorce decree to come through.”
Gloria stated the fact calmly. She thought she would be breathless with sadness, but she wasn’t.
Nydia’s pupils dilated a little. Gloria looked like she was ready to get over Jordy.
Nydia looked at her in disbelief. “You love him so much! But now you’re telling me you’re getting divorced?”
Gloria didn’t say anything, which indicated a tacit acknowledgment.
Nydia believed her and almost danced for joy. “Wow! We’re gonna go out and celebrate tonight! You’re single
Gloria’s mouth twitched. “Shouldn’t you be comforting me?”
Nydia scoffed, “Gloria, he’s not worthy of you! I told you to divorce him before. He was a typically eligible bachelor, but not every woman liked him! He never cared about you. You should have left him sooner!”
Gloria blinked. Nydia told me to get a divorce long ago.
Gloria smiled with relief, “You’re right. I’m already out of misery.”
“Let’s book a club and call some friends to join us tonight.”
