I went to her parent's house to apologize to her since that was where she would be. But they told me they disowned her.

I told them the pictures were fake. How could they not trust their daughter? Well, I'm not the one to talk about trust.

We searched for her but it was like she did not want to be found. But I was a little bit suspicious that her sister was behaving somehow like she knew something, but didn't want to say anything.

But who was I to question her? My family was disappointed in me. If only they were around when all this happened.

They were celebrating their thirty years of marriage on a remote island and I did not want to disturb them.

They were disappointed and told me that what I did was wrong and that I am supposed to trust my wife. Now she is nowhere to be found.

Seven Years Later

It's been almost seven years of searching for Raven but nothing. My life has been miserable but nobody knows how I feel. My business has been going well because all I do is work, work, work, and work. I hardly go home  why should I even go home when no one will be there waiting for me

So when my friend called me and told me he was getting married, I was so happy for him, he told me to be his best man which I accepted.

I told my parents about the wedding and they said they were going to come since my friend was like a second son to them and it was Raven's sister that he was getting married to, she's a nice person.

During the reception, I was told to make a speech which I did.

They announced somebody from the bride's side to make a speech. They said, "Raven Carmichael". Waiting for the person to come up. But what I didn't expect was to see my Raven there.

There she was looking more beautiful than the last time I saw her. I thought she would be broke because she didn't take a penny from me during our divorce.

Right since she had nowhere to go, I mean her parent practically disowned her, her brother did not even listen to her, I for one chased her out of my house and I know she had some friends but most of her female friends always tried to seduce me, she always caught them flirting with me and I did not like any of her male friends, yea call me jealous but I don't care I loved that woman and I still do.

But she still trusted me and stopped being friends with them or hanging out with people she met.

Her speech was good, what am I saying, like I was even listening to what she was saying.

I was busy staring at her, her lips, her body. Call me a pervert, I don't care. Gosh, she was just so beautiful, I could not stop staring at her, I mean she got bigger in the right places if you know what I mean.

I couldn't take it anymore after her speech. I approached her while she was talking to her sister. I was nervous, what was I even going to say to her, so I said the first thing that came to my mind.

"You look beautiful Raven".


Raven Pov

After my speech I was busy talking to my sister. I was so happy for her.

I heard someone behind me saying, "You look beautiful Raven".
I was about to reply, when I saw it was no one other than my stupid ex-husband.

Is that something he can say to me? What was I even expecting him to say anyway?

I just gave him my stone-cold face which he knows very well is what I do when I am angry or when I don't want to talk to someone.

I ignored him. He can't expect that I should turn and kiss him, smile at him after what he did to me.

He was about to say something else when his family appeared from nowhere.

His mom was the first to hug me. I was shocked. His mom, Sydney, never liked me. She was always looking for a way to get me out of her son's life telling me I was not good enough for him.

Her husband, Peter, was always looking at me like I was some gold digger or something. I only got along with his younger sister, Avery, who was still in boarding school. The rest we had issues, I mean big issues.

Like his sister Adrianna, we went to the same school, but she hated me telling me I was the reason why her boyfriend broke up with her when she found out I was dating her brother.

She was angry, I mean the bitch didn't even come to our wedding but who cares she was just so childish. I did try to be friends with her but it was like I was making things worse so I just let her be.

Then there is Nathan, the man whore, yeah I called him that because he sleeps around with any and every girl.

Even some of our female teachers were sleeping with him so when he asked me out, I refused him. He was angry because no one had ever rejected or refused him, he nearly made my life a living hell.
