“No”. She said.
“What? What did you say”? He growled.
“I said No”. Her voice a little stronger now.
“If you don’t agree, you will be sorry”.
“Oh, I don’t doubt it, but If I do agree, then I know it will be worse”.
He stared at her and she remembered reading a line somewhere that said that if glares could burn, they would be ashes.
She had no doubt that he wished her dead this moment.
But she had said no.
And that was her decision.
She will stand by it.
She wouldn’t bend, She wouldn’t break.
Come hell or high water.
The answer will always be NO.
