The word divorce froze Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Jennifer Ryan’s heart. Despite the internal battle she stood, spine pencil straight, and recited her mental mantra, don’t give in to the hurt and anger. Nothing will be gained by crying or losing your temper. Their daughters deserved a stable home. The constant military moves were disruptive enough. No matter what she had to endure their daughters came first and they loved their father, unconditionally.
For balance she placed her fingertips on the kitchen counter, drew in a long, slow breath, let it out gently. “What part of ‘I don’t want a divorce’ are you having trouble comprehending?” Her voice was low, but intense as she spoke over her shoulder to her husband.
Stalling to face him, she poured coffee into her brightly painted dachshund mug. The cup warmed her fingers. The aroma of dark roast coffee calmed her. She’d seen the signs, another affair, denied it. Damn! She was one of those women with her head in the sand. Emotions rose in her throat like bile.
Phillip paced the kitchen, turned to face her. “Whether you believe it or not our marriage is finished. I want a divorce.” He leaned in, his eyes cold, hostile, the stare so intense it caused her to hold her breath.
His harsh demeanor and tone chilled her to the bone. “I can’t accept it is. You’ve had affairs before and came back.” She unconsciously rubbed the top of the 1950s rectangle table. The first piece of furniture they’d scrimped and saved to buy.
