Chapter 1: Mr Hudson Doesn Want a Divorce

”Good morning. ”

”… Morning. ”

It was yet another awkward morning with the awkward morning greetings. It was as if the speaker was a robot, only saying things programmed.

Nanny Zhang was putting food on the table when she heard this mechanical conversation between the husband and wife. It didn become any better even with two years in marriage. Nanny Zhang always felt sad in her heart, thinking why they can be like any other normal couples. But then again, they are not a normal couple.

The man on the other side of the table was flipping through his iPad and busily sipping on his piping hot black coffee. He was busy these days, but one couldn see that on his handsome face. The woman nodded on his greeting and proceeded to get a glass of water.

”Sir, Madam, the food is ready. ”

”Thank you, nanny. You can go back for today. ”

Nanny Zhang tilted her head, confused.

”But Madam, I still have to help you with tonights party. ”

The woman shook her head and said that it was fine since she won be attending tonights party. Nanny Zhang secretly glanced at the man but there was no change in his expression. In the end, she couldn do anything but nod her head and silently cleaned the sink.

Nanny Zhangs heart once again throbbed with pain for her Sir and Madam.

Until when will their relationship be so strained like this? My old womans heart is hurting for them, ah.

Nanny Zhang no longer looked at the couple and bid goodbye as she finished her chores early than she expected. It was near holiday season so she was thinking of going home earlier today. But she was told to go home early unexpectedly. Even though she was pained for the couple, she felt happy to spend time with her family.

Closing the glass door, only two people were left inside the big house. It was so silent that you could drop a pin. There was only the sound of the utensils clattering against the dinner wares.

After a long time, the man opened his mouth.

”Why did you suddenly decided not to go to the annual party? ”

The woman chewed on her food and answered after a while.

”I don think… the celebration suits me. Id rather stay at home. ”

Garvin put down his iPad and stared at the woman in front of him. She was wordlessly eating her meal as if nothing could bother her except for her hungry stomach.

Garvin suddenly felt so stuffy as he stared at her. Even though she was answering his questions, there was no light in her eyes. It was as dull as ever. He angrily let out a sigh and opened his mouth.

”Until when will you reject the invitations to attend the party? Except for the day of our wedding, you wouldn go to any party with me. Whats your problem? ”

”Oh… sorry. ”

”It doesn sound as if you
e really feeling sorry though. ”

”… ”

Garvin blinked his eyes and looked at the woman in front of him once again. He couldn stand his wife being so openly cold to him when he didn even do anything.

”Mariana, when will you stop acting as if you are still a single lady? Let me remind you that on our wedding day, I specifically told you that I won allow a divorce. So whether you like it or not, you
e coming on the party tonight. ”

Garvin couldn hold back his anger anymore and stand up from his seat and went straight to his study. Upon entering his study, he slammed the door with a loud bang. Garvin plopped down on his chair and massaged his temples.

He was suddenly reminded of that day exactly two years ago.

There was the bright light on the stage where he was nervously waiting for his bride. Even though he told himself so many times that it was just an arranged marriage, he couldn stop his nervous heart from beating wildly inside his chest.

His hands were slightly trembling though it wasn very noticeable. At the end of the aisle stood Mariana on her white gown holding her fathers arm. She was dressed up so beautifully for the special day.

As he waited for the bride to arrive in front of him, Garvin felt anxious as time ticks. When Mariana finally arrived in front of him, he was suddenly out of breath. He didn know why, but Marianas appearance made a small stir in his heart.

Garvin was someone who the business world couldn topple with. But in front of Mariana on th
