I had just rinsed the plates I used to eat dinner when I heard Keith come into the kitchen.

"Hey." I said as I placed the plates in the rack and the spoon and fork where they should be before moving to the fridge to get the ice tray I filled with water about an hour before eating dinner. Forcing the ice out and into a bowl, I turned to look at Keith who returned my greeting.

"Do you want me to get you something to eat?" I asked even though I already knew what his answer would be.

"No. I already ate." and I nodded. Keith had figured that since we were going our separate ways, it wouldn't be nice of him to stress me by eating my food which made no sense to me. Since I was making dinner for myself I didn't mind adding a little extra for him.

"My lawyer brought this to my office today." he said as he handed a manila envelope to me. I didn't have to open it to know the content. I already knew he was not the forgiving type but I didn't expect it to be like this. One mistake and he was willing to throw everything away without caring about the consequences.

"So it's all over? You're willing to throw everything away just because of one thought I didn't even end up doing? One mistake?"

Taking a deep breath, he looked me in the eyes and said "Maya I don't trust you. Not anymore."

"We can always go to a marriage counselor to help with that. Three years of being with you without doing anything wrong, of serving you, of doing everything in my power to make sure you're comfortable and you want to throw it all away just because of one mistake? I mean I don't hold anything you've done to me against you and you've done a whole bunch of wrongs to me and I forgave you but you can't let go of one thing?"

"I'd rather go through 3 times of what I put you through than find out that the woman I loved and called the perfect woman thought of aborting my baby and wasn't going to let me know about it."

"No one is perfect." I replied before taking a deep breath. I nodded and took the envelope as I asked what will happen to his mother's company and he just shrugged.

Putting a handful of ice cubes in my mouth, I began walking out of the kitchen when his next question stopped me. "Should you even be eating that?"

I shrugged. "I have a heartburn and a weird craving for ice. I'm going to bed now. I'll give you the papers when I go through them and sign them. Good night."

"Wait. Doesn't that mean you're anemic?" he asked as his brows furrowed in worry. I was touched that he read up on pregnancy and cravings.

"The doctor checked me out when I told her about it to make sur

ght there." I replied as I rubbed my hand down my belly. I wasn't to be blamed for the deterioration of my marriage. I had done everything in my power right from the very first day. If Keith believed that his anger and disappointment were worth missing out on everything important, then so be it.

Taking an apple from the basket of fruits on the table, I left the kitchen.

Keith's POV

When I got home a week later and found the doors locked, I wondered where Maya had gone to. Taking the key out from under the doormat, I closed the door behind me and felt my brows furrow in confusion when I realized that the house smelled like no one had been there in a while. I didn't see any of the cats. Turning on the lights in the sitting room, everything looked normal except that her movie collections were no longer where they used to be.

There was a bad feeling in my stomach which I tried to push away as I climbed the stairs. When I pushed the door to her room open and found a bare room, I kind of hoped that what I thought had happened wasn't true. It was when I checked the walk-in closet and found nothing of hers that I came to the realization that she actually did it. She actually moved out, meaning she signed the divorce papers.

Fuck.

When I went to my own room and found the papers and the ring, I ran my fingers through my hair as I whispered "What have I done?"

I decided to update earlier than usual ?? Hope it's good.

So can y'all check out @thatway25's story? It'd really mean a lot to her.

Why can't I get over 2012 Rise of the Guardians? It's just so cool.
