“Answer me.”

“Charlotte, I love you. I didn’t mean to hurt you, really,” he pleaded as a couple of stray beads of sweat rolled down his forehead.

“You sure have a sick way of showing your love.” I couldn’t take any more. I had to get out of there. I pivoted on my wobbly legs and bolted for the door.

“Charlotte, don't go. We’re leaving in two days. We can work this out. We can get through this!” Jeff grabbed hold of my arm, but I yanked it back and smacked the champagne bottle in the process. The tall bottle of Veuve Clicquot flew through the air in slow motion, then shattered all over the shiny hard wood floors. I stared at the shards of glass and fizzy bubbles that circled our feet, my heart aching for what should've been a celebration of our love, but what had now become the aftermath of Jeff's deception.

I lifted my eyes to his, knowing that this was it. No matter how much I'd loved Jeff, I couldn't stay. “
We
are not leaving in two days. I’m not going anywhere with you. I’m not marrying you, and I’m not moving to Paris with you.”

With that, I left him bewildered in his office and stormed outside into the stifling DC heat.
