Veronica looked back at me when she hung up and before she could say anything, I cut her off as I took long strides to reach her.

"Are you like serious? Tell me what I heard is not true!" I spoke through gritted teeth, I couldn't even believe my own self.

"What?" she snapped and shoved the phone back to her pant pockets glaring at me.

"Don't think that your glaring at me will stop me from questioning you. You are marrying that guy because of a deal? Are you serious over here Veronica?" for the first time in my life I was actually at the woman before me and I was even least worried about that.

"Ace, do you even know the word privacy and personal? This is my personal matter and I would really appreciate you if you stay away from this, " she snapped throwing her hands in the air which made me really mad as I slammed my hands on the car's bonnet and walked away crossing my arms over my chest looking the other way.

I was panting. My nostrils flared up and down as if I had just ran a marathon. My heartbeat was in a high pace, beating loudly in my chest while I tried my level best to calm the nerves throbbing in my brain.

This woman is just impossible and ... I couldn't stop myself when I went back to the car driver's seat and slammed the shut and ignited the engine, waiting for her to get in.

A few minutes later she came back in and slammed the door hard, copying my actions as I drove off to the next site completely ignoring her presence. Has this woman totally lost her mind?

For god's sake, marriage is not a game.

"Why the hell are you driving so fast?" I heard her voice but chose to ignore it as I focussed more on the road. The car touched eighty km per hour and I didn't care because I wanted to reach the next as quickly as possible and leave back for the city.

It took just fifteen minutes because of the speed, I was driving to reach the next destination and I parked the car to the side of the road, as I got out and walked to the side to inspect the site only to have a blank mind.

Focus.

Just Focus.

You can't let this stupid woman ruin your work.

No matter what I told my consciousness, I couldn't do the work properly. Everything was right before my eyes but still I couldn't see a thing.

Ace, just focus.

Alright calm down and see what's right before you.

There was a bushy ground and it had few small embankments from where water was flowing down. The area was big but green and most of all wet. Reconstructing the area would mean, demolishing of those old embankments and a stopping the continuous flow of water.

The area was too bushy and damp but although it was a great location still, it didn't really stand to my expectations.

"Three out of ten, " I heard from my side and all I did was give her a stiff nod, just acknowledging her presence.

"Okay, I'm done with this inspection. Let's leave now or it would be late, " I told her and turned to walk tow

h the city back on time seeing the weather conditions. And the gas was already running out and as far as I could think, the only way to spend the night would be by finding a hotel.

Veronica was quiet all the time and I knew she was smart enough to understand what was going on and thankfully I was really thankful that she sat there quietly letting me do my work when all of a sudden she typed something on the GPS and it showed five minutes away from a motel.

I looked at her direction to find her holding the window rail as she looked out of the window.

The road was completely blocked with snow and a five minutes drive to the motel took fifteen minutes more as the tyre kept on trapped and slipping on the icy road and the continuous snowfall made it hard to drive as I couldn't really anything in the damn road. And the absence of street lights didn't really help.

Finally, after driving with utter difficulty, we finally managed to find the motel and I parked the car right before the motel. But as soon as I stopped the car, Veronica was first to get out as she made her way almost immediately quivering and made her way inside the motel while I stared at her, pulling the handrail brake as I made my way out and followed her inside, patting the snow away from my jacket.

I saw her near the reception talking to the lady.

"I'm really sorry but we only have one room with a deluxe bed and hot water facility, " the lady said while I looked back at Veronica to find her really in a distressed state.

"We really need two rooms. Can't you do anything?" she asked and the lady shook her head no and she didn't really realised that I was right behind her when she looked back all of a sudden and gasped before looking away.

"It's okay. I will sleep in the car, you can take the room, " I said which made her look back at me but before she could say anything, I chose to turn around and leave to spend the rest of the night in the car.
