#251 “Do You Remember When We First Met?”

As the sun dipped low on the horizon, casting a warm, golden glow over the reception venue, Sophia and Alexander found themselves enveloped in a whirlwind of joy and celebration. The air was alive with the melodious laughter of friends and family, their voices weaving together in a harmonious chorus of love and support.

Sophia’s heart swelled with gratitude as she looked around the beautifully adorned reception hall. Delicate fairy lights danced among lush floral arrangements, casting an ethereal glow over the festivities. Soft music filled the air, its gentle melodies serving as the perfect backdrop for the evening’s enchantment.

“Can you believe this, Alexander?”

Sophia whispered, her eyes sparkling with wonder. “We’re finally married!”

Alexander’s gaze softened as he took in the scene before them, his heart brimming with joy. “It feels like a dream, Sophia,” he replied, his voice tinged with awe. “A beautiful dream come true.”

As guests approached to offer their congratulations, Sophia and Alexander basked in the warmth of their well- wishes, their smiles radiant with happiness. Amidst the sea of faces, they shared stolen glances and whispered words of affection, their love palpable in the air.

“Everything looks absolutely breathtaking, Alexander,” Sophia murmured, her gaze sweeping over the elegant decor. “You’ve truly outdone yourself.”

Alexander’s smile widened, a soft glow of pride illuminating his features. “It’s all thanks to you, Sophia,” he said, his voice filled with admiration. “You’ve made this day more magical than I ever could have imagined.”

As the night unfolded, guests took to the dance floor, their laughter and joy infusing the air with an infectious energy. Sophia and Alexander found themselves drawn together, their movements fluid and graceful as they danced beneath the twinkling lights.

“You look absolutely radiant, Sophia,” Alexander whispered, his eyes alight with love as he pulled her close. “I feel like the luckiest man alive to call you my wife.”

“And you, Alexander,” she murmured, her voice soft with tenderness, “are the most handsome groom I’ve ever laid eyes on.”

Their love enveloped them, cocooning them in a bubble of warmth and affection as they moved together in perfect harmony. With each step on the dance floor, they felt the weight of their journey lift from their shoulders, replaced by a profound sense of peace and contentment.

As the night sky twinkled with stars, Sophia and Alexander stole away from the bustling reception, seeking solace in the quiet embrace of the garden. The air was filled with the fragrant scent of blooming flowers, and a gentle breeze whispered through the trees, carrying with it a sense of serenity. Hand in hand, they wandered along a winding path, their footsteps soft against the lush grass.

They found a secluded spot beneath a towering oak tree, its branches reaching towards the heavens like outstretched arms. They settled onto a nearby bench, their shoulders brushing as they gazed up at the star-studded sky.

“Do you remember when we first met?” Sophia’s voice was soft, her smile gentle as she reminisced.

Alexander’s laughter filled the air, a warm sound that echoed with fond memories. “How could I forget?”

Sophia’s eyes sparkled as she continued, “It still feels surreal to me sometimes, thinking back to those days when I was so angry with you. And now, here we are, married.”

Alexander’s expression softened, his gaze locked with hers. “You were my sweetest conquest, Sophia. There were days when I thought you would never want to be with me. That I made the biggest mistake of my life by never making the effort to meet you. And I think that’s when I first understood what real fear was.”

Sophia chuckled, a hint of amusement in her voice. “I remember those days when I thought you’d never give up.”

“And you were worth every moment of it,” Alexander interjected, his tone earnest. “I wanted you so much, Sophia. I loved you so deeply that I often felt like I was going crazy. In the beginning, I stole kisses with you and prayed that the day would come when you would want to kiss me first.”

“You were persistent, I’ll give you that, ” she teased, her tone soft and affectionate. “But I’m glad you never gave up on me.”

Alexander’s gaze softened, his eyes reflecting the depth of his love for her. ” I knew from the moment I met you that you were someone special,” he confessed, his voice filled with sincerity. “And every day since then, I’ve thanked my lucky stars that you walked into my life.”

Sophia reached out and gently brushed her fingers against his cheek, a tender gesture that spoke volumes of her love for him. “I feel the same way,” she whispered, her voice barely above a whisper. “You’ve brought so much joy and love into my life, Alexander. I couldn’t imagine being with anyone else.”

Their eyes met, and a silent exchange of love and devotion passed between them. In that moment, surrounded by the beauty of the garden and the quiet serenity of the night, Sophia and Alexander knew that they were exactly where they were meant to be together, forever.

Rumors spread about the city's wealthiest man, Alexander Stone, abandoning his wife after three years of a secret marriage to marry the daughter of a state senator for personal gain.

However, his wife surprised everyone by calmly modifying their divorce agreement to demand compensation for her husband’s failure to fulfill his duties as a husband. She is entitled to half of his company. And when the man offers a reward for her whereabouts, he puts himself in the hands of his top lawyer advisor, unknowingly she is the abandoned ex-wife who is set to take half of his company.

Chapter 1 "It Would Be On My Terms, Not Yours." "This is Mr. Stone’s divorce agreement, Mrs. Stone," Alexander Stone’s butler, Charles said as he handed a large manila envelope to Sophia. "Mrs. Stone, you have a three-day window to sign the agreement and vacate the premises." Charles watched Sophia with indifference, his demeanor calm as he spoke. Although Sophia had been anticipating this moment, her heart sank upon the mention of the divorce agreement. She glanced at Charles, accepted the envelope, and extracted the divorce agreement from within. "Ten million dollars of alimony as long as he never lays eyes on me again?" she scoffed, looking straight at Charles, whose expression remained inscrutable. "How can he possibly believe he can get away with such an absurd demand?" She continued reading, "In accordance with the terms of the divorce agreement, it is acknowledged that Sophia Stone has failed to fulfill her marital obligations for a period of three years. As a result, Alexander Stone reserves the right to initiate divorce proceedings." "This is ridiculous. How could I fulfill my duties when I couldn’t even see my so-called husband? He's never been under the same roof with me in three years." Sophia tossed the papers aside. What a mockery this made of her marriage. She felt like Alexander was shrugging her off. Like she was the water on a dog's back that he simply got rid of by shaking vigorously. She felt insulted. Three years ago, Sophia reluctantly entered a marriage arranged by her grandfather, who had laid out three tasks to her during this marriage: stay out of the public eye, assist Alexander in taking over Stone Enterprise, and be his unwavering support. Though the contractual stipulation that she remain invisible to the public eye always puzzled her, she had promised her grandfather to not disappoint him. She resigned from her powerful position at her own law firm, and tried to embrace her role as the low-profile wife of a CEO who never appeared in public. Alexander took over Stone Enterprise soon after they united, and then, he became the world champion in hide-and-seek. In the beginning, she tried to maintain a connection with her husband by preparing lunches and visiting his workplace. Yet, she soon realized that Alexander was either never at the office or too preoccupied to meet her. After six months of futile attempts, she accepted the bitter truth that fulfilling her grandfather's directives was impossible. She channeled her energy into developing her hobbies, all in her pursuit of self-improvement, persuading herself to see this period of respite as a relief from her life as a renowned lawyer and founder of the world-famous law firm. Yet, she refused to touch a single cent of the money he sent her. She had her own income, enough to lead a comfortable life until the end of her days She was certain that her marriage would eventually come to an end, but she was appalled by the way Alexander Stone twisted the narrative to paint her as the one who had failed in her marital duties. Sophia took a deep breath, resisting the urge to express her anger, and instead, she said sarcastically, “Well, where might my charming husband be today? As far as I can remember, a divorce agreement takes place between a husband and a wife, not a husband’s butler and a wife. Not to mention the fact that it’s an agreement and is thus supposed to include my terms as well, not just his.” Charles stiffened his posture and replied, "Mr. Stone is in town, most likely at his office.” "Oh? Is he alone, or was he accompanied by someone?" Sophia didn't say it directly, but her message was clear. “I cannot say for certain. All I can tell you is that he wishes for you to sign these papers, and he emphasized that he does not need to be present while you do so. That is precisely the way he prefers it." "As always, it's what Mr. Stone prefers. He didn't want to see me even at the end of our marriage, did he?" accused Sophia. Charles didn’t answer her retort, he simply bowed to her, then turned on his heels and began walking away. After the sound of his receding footsteps had vanished, Sophia picked up her phone and called Alexander's office number—the only contact information she had for him which she had never even used in their three years of marriage. She was determined to know what was going on with this agreement that treated her as if she were a doll to be manipulated. The phone kept ringing, but nobody picked up. She dialed again. Her patience and virtue had limits, and he was dancing dangerously close to those limits. On her third try, the call was finally answered. It was a young woman’s voice. "CEO's office." "Hello, I'd like to speak to Alexander." "Who’s speaking?" the woman asked abruptly. Sophia frowned when she heard the rude reply, but she kept her tone calm. "I'm his wife. You're not his secretary, are you?" The woman scoffed and didn’t even bother to answer her question. "Oh, I see. It's his ex-wife to be precise. What do you want with Alexander?" Sophia resisted the urge to get angry and said, "I have questions about the divorce terms he gave me." The dismissive voice on the other end of the line replied, "He won't answer you. His attitude is already clear in the divorce agreement. As a useless wife, he feels that he has already given you enough. What more do you want?" Sophia was especially caught by a couple of very specific words. "Useless wife? Is that what he said?" The woman continued to play on her nerves. "You shouldn't expect any more than what you’ve got. Just leave him. You didn’t deserve him anyway." As Sophia's frustration threatened to boil over, she suddenly heard the approach of a man's voice from the other end of the phone. Her heart raced in anticipation. "Emily, why are you answering my phone without permission? Stop being ridiculous!" The voice identified as Emily responded with an unsettlingly playful giggle. "Alex, your wife is calling you. She has some questions about the divorce agreement," she said, her tone dripping with sarcasm. Sophia couldn't help but let out a bitter laugh. So, this was the sordid truth behind the disintegration of their marriage – all for his mistress. Alexander hesitated, the silence stretching out agonizingly before he finally picked up the phone. His voice oozed with disdain and indifference as he coldly declared, "I no longer have the need to sustain this marriage. I have given you enough money, and there's no need for further discussion." Then, without a second thought, he hung up the phone. Sophia stayed with her phone attached to her ear for a few seconds after they had finished the conversation. Restless and agitated, Sophia paced around her living room, her frustration bubbling over. "Useless wife?" she muttered angrily. "What right does he have to call me that? He was never around as a husband, so what does he know about marriage?" The feeling of disgust and humiliation consumed her. "Is this really how he sees me? Tossed aside like an old, worn-out rag once I no longer serve his purpose?" Sophia had clung to hope in the early days of their marriage, telling herself that arranged marriages succeeded all the time. "If I shower him with love, patience, and unwavering support, hoping like an idiot he'll eventually see the powerful, intelligent, and remarkable woman I am," she murmured to herself the entire time. "And now this divorce papers," she grumbled, "With which he mocks me by throwing the blame on me, when he and only he is to blame." But she refused to be silenced, dismissed, or swayed by the lure of mere money. "If this is the callous attitude he wants to take," she vowed, "then he has another thing coming. I won't let him escape the consequences of this ill-fated marriage without a battle." After a few moments, she picked up the papers strewn across the floor. She read through them once again, her eyes narrowing with determination. "Dear, dear ex-husband," she muttered, a triumphant smile playing on her lips, "it's truly a shame you never bothered to get to know the real me. That's going to be the biggest mistake of your life." With a flourish, she tore the divorce agreement in half and tossed it into the trash can. "Ten million dollars?" she scoffed, addressing herself. "It's peanuts compared to the three years' worth of sacrifices I've put into this relationship.” "Ten million dollars as a tuition fee for the lesson I'm about to teach Alexander? Laughably inadequate," she proclaimed. "I can get this kind of money just from one case of my law firm." If we're going to get a divorce, it'll be on MY terms, not his.
