Arranged marriage (EDITING)
"We have to talk" I started.
"You think?" he raised his eyebrowes.
"I'm sorry for everything I said yesterday."
"Why? You meant what you said."
"I was drunk!" I felt strikes of pain in my head as I was raising my voice.
He stood up and walked away. I followed him.
"Stop. Mark, please.."
"What?!" he turned around facing me and I saw his dissapointment.
"I'm sorry for what I've said."
"Don't be. Atleast now I know where we stand."
His voice was so cold I could feel shivers down my spine.
"Please.." I said as I was about to cry.
"What exactly do you want me to say? Everything is okay, honey? I forgot what you said? What?!"
He went through his hair with his hands. I saw him struggeling.
"I didn't know you still feel that way about our marriage after all that has happened. If I had known, I swear to God, I would never touch you. Fuck, Lena, I started falling in love with you and than you go and say something like that. Fuck! You know what, don't worry. I won't be in your way. You just do whatever you want with your life not minding the stranger you're married to."
"Mark.." I stopped him by grabbing his hand. I felt tears running down my cheeks.
"Don't.."he stopped to take a deep breath "touch me ever again!" he growled.
