Through the Fire— Breakup scene

Hi friends! This week I’ll be sharing a breakup scene from one of my novels, Through the Fire.

(Should I be worried that I love writing breakup scenes?)

This snippet shows Oke standing her ground and refusing to shortchange herself. 


“What about all the things we talked about? Getting married? Having a family. What about the many times you said you loved me? Doesn’t any of that count? Are you really saying it’s over?”

 “Yes, Arinze. I do love you, and I still intend to try to have a child. That has not changed.” 

Oke rose to her feet.

“But I watched my father hurt my mother, then my mother hurt me and my sister. All because of love, marriage and relationships. I won’t do that to myself, to you, and certainly not to an innocent baby,” she said, a solemn expression on her face.

 “You obviously have some issues from your past to deal with, and admittedly, so do I. But we can’t do it together. And I won’t have a child born in a relationship with parents who would ever hurt each other so badly.”
