"Okay so tell me about your wife, well ex-wife." Celeste Bonin, a well-known divorce lawyer asked one of her clients, Stephen Farelly. The two were meeting in one of her downtown nicer offices and it was their last meeting until the actual divorce trial tomorrow. They had been working on this divorce case for months, and over time the two had formed a special bond; almost friends even.
Stephen sighed and ran a hand through his fiery tufts of hair. Just thinking about the woman he used to love, Emily, made him nauseated. She was a monster. He couldn't believe that they had actually gotten married, let alone stay married this long.
"It's hard to talk about her still... Even after all this time..." Stephen replied to Celeste in his thick Irish accent and the blond only nodded in understandment. After all, she knew divorces were tough but she was here for Stephen if he needed support. That was all the fun of being a divorce lawyer. Comforting newly single men, ha. What an occupation!
"I know you've told me about her tons of times before, but if you want the divorce to go well in your favor, I need to know as much as I can about Emily." The lawyer said and Stephen nodded. He trusted Celeste, and was even starting to grow quite fond of the woman. She was very easy to talk to and confide in. "Just tell me what you don't like about her." Celeste said simply and Sheamus snorted a laugh.
That was easy. It was everything.
"She's greedy." He started easily, which was absolutely true. "That's why we're in this situation in the first place. All she wanted to do was spend my hard earned money." He continued, after all Stephen was a very successful business man. He made more than enough money to support himself. "Emily, she always blew it on useless things. She was gone all the time too." Stephen said.
"That must have been hard on you." Celeste replied empatheticly. Without a doubt it was.
"She was never affectionate either, and Emily hated kids. I can't believe I spent four years of my life with her..." Stephen admitted as he shook his head in shame.
"Everybody makes mistakes..." Celeste said with a slight smile and Stephen smiled back. He thought Celeste was beautiful.
"I guess so." He replied and that's when the lawyer stood up and grabbed her too big purse.
"Okay, that's all I need to know. Things should go pretty well considering the circumstances." She explained. Stephen laughed. "It should be easy."
"That's great. I'm just ready to get everything over with." He answered. Celeste nodded respectively.
"I understand, but everything's ready for tomorrow so sleep easy tonight." She told the ginger as she began to leave the office, until Stephen stopped her.
"Hey C?" He asked the lawyer, which was his cute nickname for her. After all, the first time they met she told him that she hated her name. He was glad he didn't have to keep it professional with her. She wasn't like most lawyers, she was more loose on the rules of the business world. That's probably why she had so many clients.
"Yeah?" She asked as she turned back around to face him.
"Can I take you out for drinks?" He asked nicely as his face flushed from nervousness and fear of rejection. He really had strong feelings for the girl, and he loved every moment that they spent together. When he was with her, he was happy again. He was never happy with his bitch of a wife Emily. Celeste smiled at him.
"I'd really like that but I have to go meet with another client." The two toned blond answered. Stephen frowned and felt a twinge of jealousy inside him.
"Okay." He replied simply and that's when Celeste looked down at her watch and frowned.
"Shit I'm late!" The lawyer explained as her blond eyebrows knitted together in anger.
"Uh sorry... I'll see you tomorrow?" The ginger asked with a smile as he stood up and straightened himself.
"Bright and early." She replied sending the Irishman a playful wink, then zoomed out of the office door tripping in her too high heels that Stephen found so attractive.
Stephen then headed out too, driving in his nice car until he arrived back at his rather expensive home. Emily wouldn't be there, she hadn't been there in about three months. She moved back in with her elderly mother once she and Stephen started having marital problems. He didn't miss her, no. He didn't miss her at all.
They used to fight all the time. Sometimes she'd even throw things or try to hit him. But Stephen never laid a hand on her. Hitting a woman was morally wrong.
Although he did love Emily when they first got married, things seemed to decline after the first year of marriage. It was like she was bored with life. Stephen would always be at work, so he gave Emily money to keep her occupied. But then it was Emily who was gone all the time. It was just a lose lose situation, and there was never a winner.
They were miserable together.
That marriage was the worst four years of his life.
But soon all of this would be over and Stephen wouldn't be stressed out so much anymore. He couldn't wait to be happily divorced. Maybe then he could set his sights on someone else. He could fall in love again. He could be happy again.
Finally, things would be alright again.
