To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 1

Chapter 1 Divorced

Jenny Walter walked out of the divorce court with a divorce decree in hand.

Warren Duncan, her butler, looked somewhat embarrassed as he said, “This is for you from Old Mr. Faust, Miss Jenny.”

Then, he passed her a bank card. Even though he didn’t explain what it was for, Jenny understood.

She was a little taken aback. After a moment, she responded, “There’s no need for this. Please thank him for me. I am grateful for his care for the past two years.”

With that, she headed to the street and entered a black Maybach that had been waiting a while for her. She felt a little frustrated when she saw the people in the car.

“It’s just a divorce. Why are y’all so nervous?”

“Did you really get a divorce?” asked Zack Chandler, who was in the driver’s seat. He turned around to cast her a skeptical look.

Nodding, Jenny chuckled, “Look at my divorce decree. It’s still warm from the printer.”

She produced the document from her bag and waved it before them.

“Lovely!” said Zack, laughing aloud. “You should’ve gotten a divorce ages ago. In fact, you should’ve never married him!”

Jenny looked at him before interjecting, “Can you focus on the road? I don’t want to die right after my marriage did. Also, a divorce isn’t exactly a good thing. Why are you so happy?”

Wasn’t marriage something sacred? Jenny wondered why her brothers had wished hard for her to get a divorce.

“Of course, I’ll be happy,” he said, glancing at their eldest brother, who had been silent since Jenny entered the car, “I’m not the only one who’s happy. Gilbert is happy too.”

When Jenny looked at him, Gilbert Hawthorn did not deny Zack’s statement. He nodded immediately, saying, “Zack is right. This marriage should have never happened in the first place.”

“It was Grandpa’s last wish,” she replied with a helpless sigh. “You know I couldn’t go against his will.”

At the mention of their grandfather, they fell quiet for a moment.

Zack broke the silence, whining, “I don’t know what Grandpa was thinking. Why would he make you marry that bastard Alec? He treated you as if you were invisible for the entire two years of your marriage!”

If Jenny hadn’t stopped him, Zack would have taught Alec Faust a lesson ages ago.
