THE BILLIONAIRE’S ESTRANGED WIFE
Elizabeth Monroe’s Pov
There are times in our life where we ask ourself if we are making the right decision. Well, I guess this is the place I am to question mine but I’m not and deep down, I know I am making the right decision. I have always wanted this, I am finally getting married to the man I have been in love with ever since I was thirteen when his family had come over to our house for some business brunch or something. All I knew was that, when I saw him, I loved him and I fell for him. Just like they say; It was love at first sight.
“Congratulations, Eliza. You are finally married! And to your dream man!” My best friend, Callie exclaimed as she walked towards me.
“Aww! Thanks Callie. You of all people know how much I want this” I grinned, pulling Callie into a hug.
Everyone thought I was out of my mind chasing after Craig but at last my chase paid off. I am elated, everything I ever want I’ve gotten and I don’t think there’s anything I need again.
It’s really a miracle to be honest. All these years, I’ve been trying to catch Craig’s attention and when I was beginning to accept that we weren’t made for each other and he wasn’t mine, life took a three sixty degree turn and it became Craig pining after me and then I realize that I was still in love with him.
“I do. And I am really happy for you, best” Callie’s support really matters a lot. At first, she didn’t understand my love for Craig but now she does and I am grateful for that.
I felt someone’s hand around my waist and I instantly smiled. It’s still crazy how my body knew his touch as I laid back towards Craig instantly.
“I think it’s time we leave, don’t you think?” He whispered into my ears, his breath tickling my earlobe and I tried to resist the pleasure coursing through me just being this close up to him.
“Of course” I turned towards Callie and my parents who waved me goodbye and I smiled at them then turned back to my husband… yep! My husband and it sounded so nice.
Craig pulled me towards the entrance of the hall while everyone screamed congratulations at us. My cheeks were hurting from smiling too much but I didn’t mind at least I am married to the man I love.
And did I forget to add, I am a big believer of love.
I frowned as I noticed Craig going through his phone. I mean, I don’t want to sound clingy but I thought being newly weds we were supposed to be cuddled together, not being able to get our hands away from each other and that’s why it baffled me when I saw Craig going through his phone instead of trying to get cozy with me.
I kept on watching him while his fingers flew over his keyboard. Whatever it is might be important, I guess.
Craig scooted closer when he slipped his phone into his pockets and I glanced at him expectantly. He finally had my time but what I expected didn’t happen. Instead, he opened the door.
“Get out” his cold gaze met my confused ones as I stared at the door and at him.
Taking a look at my surroundings, I realized we had already arrived at his family mansion. Which of course, was as confusing as his statement.
“I don’t understand, why are we at your family’s mansion?” I decided to voice out my concern.
“Because this is where you would be staying” he replied in an aloof manner.
“Okay, I’m going to pretend that you didn’t say that. What about our honeymoon? We made reservations, remember?”
Okay, I was worried, I mean, he is acting strange and everything he’s saying isn’t our plan either.
“I guess I didn’t phrase that well but, I need to take care of something, so just stay here with Mom, I will be back before you know it” he gave me that his lopsided grin that always seem to work it’s charm on me and it did, because I forgot about my worries and nodded meekly and stepped out of the Limousine.
“Alright, I will wait for your return… Just come back early”
With that, I shut the door and walked towards the porch.
I rang the doorbell but I got no response. I assumed since Craig wanted me to be here, at least someone would be waiting for my arrival.
I rang the doorbell again and I breathed in a sigh of relief when the door opened.
“Hi… Mrs. Smith…” How did she get here before us? I thought we left her at the reception.
“Eliza??” She called and I nodded.
“Craig asked me to wait for him here,” I said after composing myself.
“Well then come on in” she ushered me in and I gladly went in. It was cold outside and I was shivering and my grumbling stomach wasn’t helping the matter.
“You know Craig’s room, you can wait up there for him” she nodded towards the direction and then walked away before getting a response from me.
I walked towards the kitchen to get something to eat and then I went into Craig's room.
I decided to clean up while I waited for Craig’s return. I took my time in the bathroom since I wasn’t sure when he would return.
I already got waxed with the help of Callie and the girls, I knew what to wear. I couldn’t help the big smile that overcame my face. I have always dreamt of this day, in Craig’s arms on the bed while he makes love to me.
Reality has set in and I am overly prepared, I just need Craig to return.
I stepped out of the bathroom cold with wrinkled fingers and when I glanced at the clock, it was some minutes past Eleven.
I wonder where Craig would be at such an hour and on his wedding night.
‘He has something important to take care of, Remember Eliza’ I reprimanded myself.
At exactly Twelve am, the door to the room opened and Craig stepped in. Drunk.
“Oh my goodness, Craig! What happened? Why are you this drunk?” I stepped towards him and led him towards the bed.
I took off his shoes, then proceeded to take off his shirt.
When I was done tucking him in, I was about to get into the bed when Craig caught my hand.
“We can’t share a bed,” he mumbled. I tried to pass it as a drunk mumble but his tight grip on my wrist made me pause.
“Craig, I don’t understand, what is this?”
“You are my wife now and you shouldn’t question me!”
Those words were strange coming from Craig, since we’ve been together, he treated me right and I don’t get why he was this… This way since we left the wedding.
“This is the alcohol speaking, I’m just going to get some sleep” I climbed over the bed a little bit sad that nothing would be done tonight when I felt Craig’s hand to my arm and I tumbled out of the bed.

“What the hell?!” I exclaimed in shock.
“What? I told you we aren’t going to share a bed” Craig shrugged and rolled to his left side, making sure to cover the entire bed with his huge frame.
“Craig what’s wrong with you? Why are you acting this way?” I couldn’t help the tears that slid down my cheeks, I couldn’t pretend that I understood why he was behaving in such a manner.
“I thought you knew me, my love? Can’t you tell what’s driving me crazy?” He taunted.
“No, I don’t know this Craig, the Craig I know and fell in love with isn’t you” I sniffed as I tried to wipe the tears away from my cheeks which proved abortive.
“Aww! My love, this is the real Craig” he chuckled then rolled out of the bed. “This is the Craig you wanted so bad and now you’ve gotten him”
He walked towards me and bent down, meeting me on the floor. I could feel his alcohol and his woody cologne waft th
