"Zoe, we have to fix-"
"No Takuya. This whole deal opened my eyes…."
"What do you mean, Zoe?"
"Takuya, I want a divorce. I never want to see you again."
His eyes grew wide as she repeated her words.
"I want a divorce…"
He was speechless. What could he say to this? How much had he really messed up? Well, a lot.
Zoe's eyes were glued to her abdomen, where her hand was laying. She took was shocked with the news of the baby, but hurt by the circumstances it was conceived.
"But Zoe, you can't-you-we can't get a divorce! What about the baby?" he asked raising his hands in the air in exasperation.
"Get out Takuya," was all she replied. No more, no less.
"Zoe, I won't go-"
"Get out! I don't want to see your face ever again! You have caused me so much pain for what? What have I done to deserve this?"
Zoe stopped to see how her husband would react to her command. His had lowered his eyes to the floor and he tightened his fists on his sides.
"Nothing…you have done nothing….I-it's just that…." Started Takuya and sighed. "…I was jealous for all that you are…I was so lost in my jealousy-I thought-no, I didn't think. And now, I guess this is what I get for being an asshole…" His voice had lowered to almost a whisper by the time he was done. He briskly tuned around and walked out the door.
"Well, I'm not the one who goes who knows where in the middle of the fucking night drinking myself to a stupor and returning at 3, 4 in the morning."
The words were running through his head.
You are the one who comes during the night stinking up this damn apartment with you alcohol and other women's perfume!"
He thought of the multiple nights he arrived late and disoriented, thinking he had nothing else to live for…as was his thought….
"Don't you dare call me a bitch you bastard!"
He thought of how and why he could call her that.
Takuya continued walking down the hall he passed by earlier with the doctor to see Zoe. His face lowered and with heavy strides, went back to the lobby where his three friends were.
"Look, it's Takuya!" voiced Sophie as she shook Koji awake.
"Wha-whoa...I'm up…" said Koji groggily.
"Hey Takuya! Where are you going? Takuya! Hey, wait up!" said Koichi, getting up and following the brunette to the doors.
Takuya blocked out any of his friends' requests. Now, he had started to run. He was running. As though he was running for dear life. But her voice came back to his head.
"You are the last person in this earth who has the fucking right…"
He thought of what right he still had…if he had any….
"You were fired? Why didn't you tell me?"
Her softness…her kindness…her way for worrying about him…
What did I do? I never meet your fucking boss!"
What did she do? Exactly what did she do? She was Zoe.
Tears were running down his face. When was the last time he had cried? It was such a long time ago, it seemed as though all those years he had not cried, were pouring out at the moment. But all those tears for the loss, for the one person who actually cares for him and gives him something to live for…but what now?
He got into his car and noticed Kouichi jogging up to his car. Takuya quickly turned his ignition key and the car showed life.
"Hey, Takuya! Dude, what happened?" screamed Kouichi as he was inching closer to his friend's car. But as soon as he was closer, the car sped away.
"Shit," cursed Kouichi and sighed.
Where was he going? What to do now?
Takuya was driving at way over the speed limit. Forty miles per hour…Fifty miles per hour….
The tears were cascading down his face. His chest was hiccupping with every thought that came to mind about her…
Sixty miles per hour….sixty five miles per hour….
"I'm sorry Zoe…I'm such a bastard…I can never do anything right…." he thought.
As the tears were increasing, his vision was clouding. His speed was yet increasing further.
Takuya was coming to a stop light.
The stop light had turned on red and everyone in the lanes had stopped. The other lanes had already started to accelerate, turning and going their separate ways.
Takuya gripped his steering wheel. "Zoe…." he said.
And he ran the stop light.
"Ah!" he yelled and crashed.
"Haahaahaaa" came the laughter of the audience. It was a late night re-run of some comedy show.
His eyes popped open as he gasped.
"Haahhaaahaaa" came the laughter of the audience again.
Cold sweat was soaking the rim of his shirt and his strands of hair were stuck to his forehead.
"Whoa…whoa…" he repeated.
Takuya was sitting down on his couch with the bag of chips in his hands. He looked around. The sofa. The jacket lying on the couch. The chips in his hands. The TV was on.
He was still breathing hard. "It was only a dream…." He said to himself. But he was not very convinced so he pinched himself.
"Ouch" he said and got up.
Takuya walked towards the bedroom and looked at the time. 3 AM.
"Shit…I fell asleep on the couch….dammit, note to self: never eat your favorite chips late at night," he said and looked at the bag of chips. Yet, he took a handful out of the bag and shoved it into his mouth.
And he was munching away he remembered something. "Zoe!" he cried with a full mouth.
He quickly walked to his night stand where his self phone was placed. He called Zoe.
Zoe automatically sat up.
"Who the fuck is calling me at this time" she growled and took the phone into her hands.
"Oh Takuya!" she chimed. "Hello?"
"Yeah, what's up?" she asked eagerly.
"Oh, um, hey!" he greeted.
"Hey…what's up? Are you okay?"
"Uh, yeah, of course….Um, by any chance, you're not in the hospital, right?" he asked quietly.
"No!" she laughed. "Why would I be in the hospital?"
"No, just asking…." He answered and then in a whisper he asked, "By any chance, you aren't mad at me, right?"
"Yeah I am!" she said.
"What? No! I didn't do anything-" he quickly replied.
"Takuya," she laughed, "I'm joking, why would I be mad?"
"No, um, just asking…." He said again.
"Takuya, I know you inside and out. What's wrong?"
"Um…it's just that…uh, okay, I had this weird dream and…uh, well, I think it's too long for me to explain now, especially considering the fact that it's very late…" he said as he scratched the back of his neck.
"And that we're getting married tomorrow," she added with a smile.
"Yeah, I can't believe it."
"Neither can I," she agreed.
"You know, Zoe, that I love you, okay…and that I'll never do anything to hurt you…okay?" he said
Zoe's eyes glistened as he heard him say that. "Yeah," she replied happily, "I love you, too."
"Yeah, and if I ever act like an idiot, don't let the twins influence me, okay? Because they are of no help."
Zoe laughed. "The twins? Where did that come from?"
"It's a long story, which will come tomorrow," said Takuya.
There was a calming pause in the conversation, but neither of the two was disturbed by it.
Takuya was just happy that all that ordeal was only a dream, and that Zoe was not angered at him…or him drinking and crashing into his doom.
"Well, I guess I'll see you tomorrow…at our wedding," said Zoe and grinned at the thought.
"Yeah, see ya tomorrow, and sorry for disturbing you…I just needed to speak with you."
"It's fine, but if my face looks awful tomorrow, it's you're fault," she joked.
"You never look awful," he said innocently.
As if he was telling her this for the first time, Zoe found herself blushing at his comment. "Thanks, Takuya," she said honestly.
"Well, I guess we should sleep, it's going to be a long night," he smiled.
"Yeah, goodnight," she said.
"Night," he answered back and they both hung up.
