As he laughed, she whimpered. What was so funny? Did he honestly think she would stay married to Lucas after this? Their marriage had been crumbling for a while, even before it started. She had never been over Edward, not even a little. Most of her still loved him, and she had never loved Lucas. He was her friend, and she liked him quite a bit, but there was never love. And she had always felt like he hadn't ever loved her, either. The financial crisis that he blatantly hid from her was the straw that brought the camel to its knees, but its back only broke after today.
Did Edward/Xavier - were they even the same person? - honestly think that she could stay with that sort of monster?
At his response, she frowned. "Okay," she replied meekly. "But...why was that funny?" Straightening up just slightly, she looked to him directly. "Did you...did you really think I could stay married to him? I can't even think about him now without wanting to puke."
