Danica looked away as Astrid spoke harshly to her, arms crossed, cheeks flushed from embarrassment.
Only two years ago they chatted like equals. Now that she married Nathan... well Danica felt like a little girl being scolded by her better..
When Astrid finished with her little dig at the Ivers in general, Danica could see Nathan shift a bit un comfortably on his feet, expression brooding and dark as he glanced off to the side, then flashed a glare at her... Clearly it was Danica's fault for giving his wife the oportunity to come to such a conclusion...
As if he hadn't disapointed her first!
Danica felt near tears! But she held them back.
"Astrid..." She said, trying to keep her voice calm. "Do you have no sympathy? Ron said he wanted a divorce first. He was already speaking of breaking a contract. He could have shown his disappoint another way. He could have spoken to me like a gentalmen. Truth is when I found that vampire I thought he might kill me... And I half hoped he would. I felt half dead already leading up to that night. I was in misery and having my husband so quickly want to end everything over something we could have talked about... Just about did it for me."
Looking between the two once more she said, " Yet Ron gets a pass on everythong because he chose to speak of divorce and then pop some pillsand attempt to kill himself. I chose to sleep with Anthony just to find one moment of escape. And honestly it changed everything for me! I went back to Ron. I told him he was right. I told him I would do better and that I would take his name. And even when he did everything to shove me away I stayed with him, I watched out for him, I cut off his Supply is best I could. I went to him and try to show him love when he rejected me so harshly. And he had no idea yet that I had cheated on him. It isn't fair!" She said, stamping her foot. Looking to Nathan then she said, " if the roles were switched I believe you two would be telling me that he had made the better choice, and at least she had damage to himself and try to break a contract. And then maybe I had drove him to it!"
