"Dane, it's time someone taught Sara a lesson." Joyce Preston's features grew softer and more pleading as she decided to try a different approach. "She forced you into a marriage you didn't want and then she cheated on you with my husband so that she could get her hands on his money. "
"I'm...I'm not so sure I believe that anymore," Dane Manchester muttered softly. "No matter what faults Sara might have, she's always been loyal to me."
"You're a fool!" she snapped, again growing angry. "You're a damned fool!" Feeling that her emotions were starting to get out of control, Joyce took several long breaths to calm herself before speaking again. "She's making a fool out of you, Dane. It's clear that she has all the control in your marriage. She forced you to marry her which caused your father to disinherit you and then she cheated on you with my husband so that she could get all of the money she didn't get when she married you. She took away everything that you had and then gave a little bit of it back, but gave herself more so that you'd be dependent on her! She's got you wrapped around her little finger and she controls every move you make!"
"No one controls me!" Dane barked. "I'm my own man and I make my own decisions. I do as I damn well please, Sara or no Sara."
"I'm sure you do." Joyce smiled slyly as if she knew much more than she was willing to let on. "So, Dane, what is it? Are you going to remain Sara's little lap dog, bowing to her every whim, or are you going to be a man and teach her a lesson? What are you going to do Dane? The choice is yours."
