Chapter 20

Three weeks later, Jennifer finished up with the restaurant and Mark and Jake were thrilled and told her that she and Ethan were welcome to eat there anytime and their meals would be free. She walked into the club and went to the office and heard voices.

“I told you to leave now!” Ethan said.

“Ethan, please, I love you!” a woman said.

“You were a fling, nothing more and it was four years ago, I’m married now and I love my wife!” Ethan said.

“Ethan, she won’t know,” the woman said.

“I will never ever cheat on my wife!” Ethan said. Jennifer walked into the office and saw a woman standing in front of the desk.

“Get away from my husband, bitch,” Jennifer said.

“This is your wife?” Sarah asked.

“And you must be a fling who can’t let go,” Jennifer said.

“I can’t let go, I’m in love with him,” Sarah said.

“Your obsession with my husband ends now!” Jennifer said.

“You do not want to mess with me, I’ll make your life a living hell, so if you want to have a peaceful life, you will walk out this door and file for a divorce from him and disappear from his life,” Sarah said.

“Did you just threaten me?” Jennifer said. They heard a click and they looked and saw Ethan pointing a gun. Jennifer moved around and stood beside him. Seth and Alex came in and took her arms.

“You threatened my wife, you are done,” Ethan said.

“Ethan, please,” Sarah said.

“No, Sarah, you don’t threaten my wife and get away with it, guys, take her to the cells,” Ethan said. Seth and Alex tied her up and took her out. Ethan put his gun up and took her in his arms.

“You okay baby,” Ethan said.

“Yeah, how many more are there,” Jennifer said.

“Baby,” Ethan said.

“Tell me,” Jennifer said.

“Many,” Ethan said.

“How many,” Jennifer said.

“Two dozen,” Ethan said.

“Seriously?” Jennifer asked.

“I wasn’t ready to settle down,” Ethan said.

“And now you are,” Jennifer said.

“I was at the point that I was getting bored and wanted to start to settle down and find a wife and have a family, the next day I saw your picture and I knew you were the one,” Ethan said.

“I hope there are no more of them wanting you for themselves, I don’t want to spend all my time fighting them off,” Jennifer said.

“Jen, baby, do you trust me?” Ethan asked.

“With my life,” Jennifer said.

“I love you more than anything in the world, I would give my life for you,” Ethan said.

“I love you too,” Jennifer said. He kissed her deeply. There was a knock at the door.

“Yeah?” Ethan said.

“Boss, Daniel is here to see you,” Seth said.

“Oh great,” Ethan said.

“Who’s that?” Jennifer asked.

“Sarah’s brother,” Ethan said.

“Do you get along with him?” Jennifer asked.

“Yeah but who knows since today,” Ethan said. Seth brought Daniel into the office.

“Ethan hello,” Daniel said.

“Daniel, hello, this is my wife, Jennifer,” Ethan said.

“Congratulations on the marriage,” Daniel said.

“Thanks, what brings you by,” Ethan said.

“My sister, she told me she was coming to see you and I’ve been trying to call her but got no answer but the locator on her phone says her last location said here,” Daniel said.

“Oh she was here,” Ethan said.

“She came wanting you back and met you wife huh,” Daniel said.

“And threatened me,” Jennifer said.

“She threatened you, what did she do?” Daniel asked.

“Told me she would make my life a living hell, she said if I wanted to have a peaceful life, that I was to leave and file for divorce from Ethan and disappear from his life,” Jennifer said.

“I can’t believe this, she knew it was just one time thing, I thought not hearing from you after that one time would tell her that you didn’t want something more, I heard you tell her that it would not be anything more, that you weren’t ready, but she held out hope that you would change your mind, she sat in her room staring at her phone,” Daniel said.

“Oh my god,” Jennifer said.

“She sat in her room waiting for a call that would never come,” Ethan said.

“My dad, my mom, and I told her that you moved on and to just get on with her life, she tried but I guess she was still hung up on you, she’s never had a boyfriend longer than a year, she hoped and prayed you would come for her,” Daniel said.

“She’s downstairs in a cell right now,” Ethan said.

“Okay, have Seth and Alex take her to the mental hospital and put her there indefinitely,” Daniel said.

“You could being her brother,” Jennifer said.

“I’ll meet them there, I need to tell my parents,” Daniel said.

“Won’t they try to stop it?” Jennifer asked.

“I don’t believe so, not after what I tell them she did,” Daniel said.

“Thanks man,” Ethan said.

“Have a good night,” Daniel said. He left. Ethan hugged her close to him.
