Chapter 27

  • I squirmed on my bed as I tried to find the best position to lie and be at peace with myself and maybe the world. Aside from the fact that I was getting married, I was scared of the life after marriage with Maverick. I was scared of dying of loneliness; I was going to leave my family and my only friend, Abby. I was scared of being tortured by Maverick. Come to think of it, he isn't bad of a man but having to take me in exchange for money was what gave me the hatred I have for him and also the suspicion in my heart. If he could do that, he was capable of even killing me, though that was the way I perceived it. Deep down in my heart, I earnestly wished he would come to our house and give me the good news of calling off the wedding. But I could only dream, and dreams mostly didn't come to actualization. And this was one of them.
  • I stood up tiredly from the bed and walked to the big blue box containing my wedding gown. I admired the gown, feeling it also with my fingers. A tear dropped from my eyes. The gown was heavenly, but if only I was getting married to the man of my dreams. I would have been so happy wearing the dress and walking down the aisle. But this was a nightmare I hoped to wake from. I wiped my eyes "be strong Nat," I muttered to myself and went back to bed. Since it was my last day being a single woman before being married, Abby and I had planned to meet later at night which my parents guaranteed but only after promising them to come home and not to come home drunk. Maybe I might as well fail that promise since it was going to be my last day under their care. I will get drunk and I will also sleep out. I took my phone from the bed when it beeped and opened the message sent to me.
