A/N: So I felt bad and couldn't leave you hanging! Thanks for the reviews, it means a lot. Also, I made a Pinterest Page for the story and the link is on my profile. Here's chapter 6, I hope you like it! And please review, I mean if you want to...
Sophia and I both stare at each other. I'm at a lost for words at the moment, which is unusual for me. She shakes her head and begins tapping her foot.
"You thought I wouldn't find out?" Sophia says, a smirk gracing her lips.
"Who knows with you." I state, shaking my head.
"Well, I know you probably want to divorce me. But it's not going to happen, Christian." she voices, walking into the living room.
"Why is that, Sophia?" I ask her, crossing my arms.
"Because what will your family say or how much business you will lose? You'll be known as a disgusting bastard and your career will be over." Sophia explains and I stand still.
"I'll give up everything for her." I mutter, staring her straight in the eye.
"No, you won't. You love your business more than anything in the world. Plus, I won't sign the papers. I'll look like a complete fool." she says, putting her hand on her hip. "So what will it be, Christian?"
What will I do? I've worked so hard for my business and I'll be ruined if I let it go. But I love Anastasia, she has made me feel things I've never experienced before. This whole thing is fucked up. I have to make a decision and I have to make it soon.
I get home from the date that never happened and find Kate watching TV on the couch. She notices my presence and mutes the volume. I kick off my heels and sit next to her.
"Why are you back so early?" she asks, offering me some chips. I grab the whole bag and stuff four chips in my mouth.
"He had a emergency at home." I mumble with my mouth full. She nods and pulls the chips away from me.
"You'll regret eating the whole bag later, trust me." Kate teases and I laugh. And I continue laughing, not being able to stop. Kate looks at me strangely. I haven't laugh freely in so long because I have been so caught up with Christian. All of a sudden, I feel the sadness and it makes me start to cry.
Kate realizes my now emotional breakdown and pulls me into her arms. She rubs my back and whispers encouraging words. This is what I need right now. I need a good cry, to let out everything I've been feeling.
"Why are you crying?" she asks, pulling away and wiping my tears.
"I have to end it with Christian." I spit out and Kate stares at me, eyes widen.
"I'm tired. You know Christian told me a month ago that he was going to end it with his wife and he hasn't done anything. I'm done waiting and being left behind." I explain, taking a deep breath.
"What made you realize all of this?" Kate questions and I shrug.
"Tonight, when he left. I've been in denial for way too long and it sucks being the other woman. It's going to be really hard to move on, but I know it's for the best." I state and she nods.
"Wow, I'm impressed."
"You and me both." I whisper.
The next morning, I know what I have to do with Christian. It's going to be tough and emotional, but it's for the best. I get changed into a white blouse and red dress shorts. My hair is pinned straight, cascading down my back.
Kate already left for work and I make myself some tea. I sit in the kitchen and decide to call my mother, Carla.
"Mom." I say as I hear her voice.
"Ana, I haven't heard you in a while. How are you, sweetheart?" she asks, her voice cheery as ever.
"I'm fine, could be better. How are you and dad?"
"We're great. But we miss you." Carla mutters and I smile.
"I miss you, too. I'm planning to visit you two soon." I explain and she screams.
"Oh, really, Ana? Oh, I can't wait!" I start laughing through my falling tears.
"Me either. I'll talk to you later, Mom. I love you."
"Love you too, Annie." We both hang up and I wipe the tears away. I grab my pursue and put on my sandal high heels. Now I'm on my way to GEH.
When I enter Grey Enterprises, it's not as busy as other days. I arrive on the top floor and see that Christian is already here. His door is wide open and I walk in without knocking.
"Hi." I say. Christian looks up from working and seems tired.
"Hi." he replies. I wander over to his desk and sit down in the chair placed in front of him. "Sophia knows." Okay, I totally was not expecting for him to say that. I don't move a muscle and sit still.
"I can't do this, not anymore." I reveal and Christian stares at me.
"I know." Christian whispers, running his fingers through his hair.
"I've realized that I'm not the same girl when I arrived here. And I kind of hate myself right now." I explain, looking down.
"It's not your fault. It's me, I'm completely fucked up." he voices, shaking his head. "I just, I don't know how to let you go."
"Letting me go is the right thing to do." I plea, my blue eyes staring into his gray ones. Christian rises up from his chair and comes towards me. I stand along with him and he pulls me close to him.
"I love you. You should know that." Christian states as he holds my face in the palm of his hands.
"I do." I whisper, tears falling from my eyes. "I think this is going to be the last time we ever see each other."
"What?" he asks, his eyes widen.
"I'm leaving Seattle and I don't know when I'll be back." I explain, removing myself from his embrace. "It's for the best."
"Best wishes, Anastasia." Christian mutters, going back to his desk.
"Goodbye, Christian." I smile softly and exit his office. I walk to the elevators and leave GEH. And I don't look back.
I immediately call Kate after I left Christian to meet back up at the apartment. When I arrive home, she's in the kitchen with a bottle of tequila with my name on it. I start laughing and she pulls me in for a hug.
"You okay?" she asks, backing away and pours me a shot.
"Not really." I murmur, taking the shot from her hand and drink it quickly.
"It'll get better, I promise. I just think that someday you'll meet someone new, and you'll fall madly in love. And you'll have moved on without even realizing it." Kate explains and I nod.
"You're right and that's why I'm leaving Seattle." I state and she stares at me.
"I miss my family and I need to get back to the girl I was before." I voice, placing my hand onto Kate's.
"Fine, just promise me you won't be there forever." Kate mutters and I smile.
Two Years Later...
My life has turned from downhill to upright success. I've taken the path my parents always wanted me to purse, which is being a writer. I forgot how much I loved to write when I was growing up. So I began writing stories again and then turned it into a book series. I've been busy touring around the United States, promoting my books.
Today, is the last day of my book tour and I couldn't be more relieved. Yes, I'll miss the endless traveling to new places. But I need a break and get back into the swing of things. My agent planned the book signing at a bookstore in Seattle.
Kate is coming with me for support and for the free lunch from the store. She even helped me with my outfit for today. Which is black, leather shorts and a white t-shirt, paired with a red blazer. And Kate insisted that I wear my black high heels.
We enter through the back and I see the huge line of people waiting. They begin screaming when they see me appear and I take my seat at the table. The book signing begins and I love meeting my fans.
The signing is almost over and I'm exhausted. When the next person arrives, I don't look up as I expect the fan to slide me the book. As I receive the book in front of me, I ask for a name.
"Christian Grey." I hear his voice, husky and sexy. It still brings butterflies to my stomach after two years of being away. I look up and is it possible that he got more beautiful.
"Mhmm" I mumble, signing my name and handing him the book.
"It's a great book, I'm very impressed." he states and I nod, speechless.
"Thank you." My agent, Kurt comes up and says it's time to leave. I rise up from my seat and Christian is still here.
"Can I see you sometime?" Christian asks, his hands in his pockets.
"I don't know if that's a good idea." I say, placing a piece of my hair behind my ear.
"And why is that?"
"Well, because aren't you still married?" I question, crossing my arms.
"I divorced Sophia last year." he reveals and my eyes widen.
"Wait a minute. What?" Christian chuckles and smiles.
"I found out she was also cheating on me and I couldn't stand her anymore." Christian explains and I nod.
"Well, I'm happy for you." I voice, starting to walk away.
"So how about that dinner?" he asks and I bite my lip. "Still biting that lip I see." I smile and sigh.
"Christian, I'm seeing someone." I say and his face drops.
"Oh." Christian whispers, running his fingers through his hair.
"Still running your hand through your hair I see." I tease and he chuckles.
"You probably think I'm crazy, coming here." he mutters and I shake my head.
"I think we're all a little bit crazy." I state and Christians smiles wholeheartedly. "It was nice seeing you, Christian." I turn around and walk to the back door.
"You know, Ana." he yells out, making me stop to face him. "You and I will always be unfinished business." Christian voices, a smirk on his face. I bite my lip and exit the store. Why does he make everything so difficult?
