I had just cheated on my older fiancé less than two weeks before our wedding, and came home to find out that he knew what I had done.
There was no way around this fight, so I just didn’t say anything at all as Keegan yelled at me in the doorway of our home. He vented his jealousy, anger, and disappointment in my actions. He said he was calling off the wedding, because I was a whore. He threatened DNA testing of our child, because he said that I had obliterated his trust. He yelled so loudly that he woke up our sleeping baby, along with my best friend Laura and her boyfriend, who crashed at our place after Laura’s party.
Laura went to check on the baby while the boyfriend tried to calm Keegan down, but it didn’t work. My silence was irritating him even more. He wanted me to say something, he wanted me to confirm or deny his accusations. He wanted me to give him the ammunition he needed to feel everything he was accusing me of. But I just stood there, looking at my feet like a child does when they are in trouble. “Say something!” Keegan screamed in my face as he cupped my cheeks and pulled my eyes up to his, forcing me to look him in the eye. “Say something. Anything, Vivian, please,” he pleaded.
“It’s a terrible feeling isn’t it, the way you feel right now? Well, now you know how I felt when you were f*cking Anne and Candice,” I said softly before pushing his hands away from my face and walking upstairs to hold my baby. Anne and Candice were the two women Keegan had sex with while we were together.
Keegan’s jaw dropped. It wasn’t denial, it wasn’t a confession, and it wasn’t what he wanted to hear—it was his fiancée sounding like she was trying to get revenge for his sexual adventures. Laura kissed me on the forehead and left with her boyfriend. She knew full well that I had slept with Brian, but it wasn’t her place to say anything. “Text me if you still need help with the wedding favors in a few days,” she said as she was heading out the door.
Keegan came upstairs and just stood in the hallway, staring at me as I cuddled and rocked our baby girl back to sleep. Once she was back in her crib asleep, I headed towards the bathroom, but Keegan quickly grabbed my arm to stop me as he leaned against the wall. I had never seen that look in his eyes before…
