Albert now a sorry man, just followed her.
Ellie, being a reasonable person did, agree to meet with him, as she was willing to give him a chance to explain his behaviour towards her while they were married.
Which, was a big mistake on her part.
He was unreasonable, obnoxious to the point where he was asked, politely to leave and he couldn’t manage that without being escorted out.
They let Ellie stay as they thought, asking her to leave as well would, put her in danger, for that Ellie was grateful.
Albert, had has his chance and he threw it away.
Ellie suspected that he’d had been drinking when she met him, feeling she should have asked, him to go there and then.
Ellie resolved he was not going to get a second chance to humiliate her again, or to embarrass her, or himself.
She called the police, after telling them, they knowing her last experience with him, while trying to be reasonable with him, he did not meet her with the same curtesy she gave him.
The policeman agreed something needed to be put in place for her safety, after all Ellie had done nothing to deserve any of this abuse.
