After the Divorce: Crushed on My Lawyer Ex-wife

Chapter 195



#195 “He Wants to Propose to Evelyn.”

As Sophia stirred from her slumber, she reached out for Alexander, expecting to feel his warmth beside her, but her hand met only empty sheets. Confusion clouded her mind as she glanced around the room, searching for any sign of him. The absence of his presence only fueled her suspicions, leaving her with a gnawing sense of unease.

Frowning, Sophia reached for her phone, hoping to find a message from Alexander explaining his sudden departure. Yet, to her dismay, there were no notifications from him. Her mind raced with questions, wondering where he could have gone and why he hadn’t told her.

Just as her frustration began to mount, a message from her best friend, Evelyn, lit up her screen. A small smile tugged at Sophia’s lips as she read the invitation to meet for coffee. Maybe spending time with Evelyn would help take her mind off her worries.

Sophia quickly got dressed and made her way to their favorite café, where Evelyn was already waiting for her, a steaming cup of coffee in hand. As Sophia approached, she couldn’t help but notice the furrow of concern on Evelyn’s brow.

“Hey,” Evelyn greeted, her voice tinged with concern. “You look like you could use some caffeine.”

Sophia nodded gratefully as she took a seat across from her friend. “Thanks,” she replied, reaching for the cup and taking a grateful sip. “It’s been a strange morning.”

Evelyn raised an eyebrow, her curiosity piqued. “Strange how?” novelbin

Sophia sighed, her gaze falling to the table as she recounted the events of the morning. “Alexander left without saying anything,” she explained, frustration evident in her voice. “And he’s been acting so secretive lately. It’s starting to drive me crazy.”

Evelyn nodded sympathetically, her own frustrations evident. “Tell me about it,” she replied, her tone laced with exasperation. “Kyle’s been acting the same way lately. It’s like he’s hiding something, but whenever I ask, he just brushes it off.”

Sophia sighed, knowing exactly how Evelyn felt. “Why do you think they’re being so secretive?” she wondered aloud, her brow furrowing in frustration.

Evelyn shrugged, a puzzled expression crossing her features. “I wish I knew,” she admitted, her voice tinged with frustration. “But whatever it is, I’m not going to let it ruin our day. We deserve some girl time.”

Sophia smiled, grateful for Evelyn’s friendship and the distraction it offered. “You’re right,” she agreed, determination shining in her eyes. Let’s enjoy our coffee and forget about our secretive boyfriends for now.”

Sophia had spent the entire day immersed in her work, trying her best to push aside the troubling thoughts that had been plaguing her. She didn’t want to dwell on Alexander’s strange behavior or her grandfather’s secrets. But as she finally arrived home, exhausted and drained from the day’s events, she was met with yet another unsettling surprise.

Alexander was nowhere to be found.

Anxiety gripped Sophia’s chest as she scanned the empty apartment, her mind racing with questions and doubts. Where could he be? Why hadn’t he told her he was leaving again? Frustration and worry gnawed at her, threatening to overwhelm her senses.

As the minutes turned into hours, Sophia’s agitation only grew. It was well past midnight when Alexander finally returned home, his footsteps echoing through the silent apartment. Sophia’s relief at his arrival quickly turned to anger as she saw the telltale signs of his late-night escapade.

Her patience worn thin, Sophia wasted no time in confronting him. “Where have you been?” she demanded, her voice tinged with frustration. “And why do you keep hiding things from me?”

Alexander’s expression faltered, his eyes widening in surprise at her accusation. “I-I…” he stammered, clearly caught off guard by her directness.

Sophia’s anger flared as she pressed him for answers. “Do you have another woman?” she demanded, her tone sharp with accusation.

Alexander’s shock quickly turned to disbelief. “What? No!” he exclaimed, shaking his head vehemently. “That’s not it at all.”

Sophia felt a pang of guilt at her accusation, but her frustration outweighed her remorse. “Then what is it?” she demanded, her voice softer but no less insistent.

“I promised not to tell,” Alexander admitted.

“Don’t tell who?” Sophia pressed him, her eyebrows furrowing in concern.

Alexander chuckled nervously. ” Nobody warns you about the questioning you’re going to get when you’re in a relationship with a lawyer.”

Sophia’s expression remained serious. ” It’s not funny to me, Alexander. Tell me what’s going on. Are we done with secrets?” Her tone was firm, demanding clarity.

Alexander’s laughter faded as he sensed the gravity of Sophia’s words. “I understand,” he replied, his voice more serious now. “I promised Kyle that I wouldn’t say anything.”

Sophia’s concern deepened as she listened. “Promised Kyle what?” she prodded, her curiosity piqued.

Taking a deep breath, Alexander finally confessed, “He wants to propose to Evelyn.”

Sophia’s anger melted away in an instant, replaced by a surge of joy and excitement. “Oh my gosh, really?” she exclaimed, a wide smile spreading across her face.

Alexander nodded, relief evident in his expression. “Yes, really,” he confirmed, a hint of amusement in his voice.

Sophia’s heart swelled with happiness as she realized the significance of the moment. “I want to help,” she declared, determination shining in her eyes. “Let’s make this the most amazing proposal ever.”
