Chapter 1

 

It’s been set. She has no say in it (as always). What would she say any way? That this wedding is too soon? That she has other things she would want to concentrate on? That she barely know the guy they all setting her up to? Nahhh. That sort of talking doesn’t take place in Anna’s family. Since she was a young girl, her parents have laid down the path of her future and for 23 years, she has been following the exact same thing. Kind of think of it, the only thing she has ever chosen for herself is her major which she graduated three months ago. For her parents, it’s time for her to settle down and who could do her a better husband then their friend’s only son, James Archer. Anna practically grew up listening to how great James is and how he could do no wrong. Though she has never seen him, she can tell her parents fancy him and would do anything to get them to tie a knot.

 

Anna looked at the message she just received. Clark just asked her out. The guy she had a crush on throughout her college years has finally asked her out and though she would love to give them a thought, she know there’s no going against her parents especially in this matter. Anna pressed on the message and dragged it to the bin that appears on top of the screen.“Sorry Clark, I really do like you but hmmmm”.

 

“Anna, we have guests downstairs. Hurry up would ya”. Her mum said outside her door before heading downstairs. She sighed. There’s no turning back now. She stood up from her bed, letting the towel slip down her body and puddle at her feet. She looked at herself in the mirror. Thick, black curly hair, that reaches up to her back. Dark brown eyes surrounded by thick lashes. Full lips. She has never been the toned type but she has curves in all the right places. She walked up to her wardrobe and pulled out a soft sea green dress that reaches just above her knees. She applied a bit of gloss and mascara and walked up to her bedroom door. ‘Here goes’.

 

She can hear loud voices coming from downstairs. The atmosphere confirms that everyone is having a great time. Anna took a deep breath and descended the stairs. One thing that makes her really uncomfortable is being the centre of attention but there’s no running away from that now. The minute she walked down the last set of stairs, the crowd came to an utter silence.

 

“My, look at her. She is gorgeous Alan”. Mrs Archer was the first to break the silence. Dad looks at me with a proud smile. “James, you’re a lucky man”. Anna glance at the person called James. First thing that anyone would notice about this man is how well built he is. ‘Well, he definitely gonna reject me’ she thought to herself. His black shirt hugged his muscles perfectly.  His tanned skin showed he worked under the sun a lot. A two-day-old beard around his angled face. Thin lips. What almost made her gasp was his dark black eyes that was staring right at her. Something about the way he looks at her told her this man ain’t easy to get along with. To be honest, it frightened her a little.

 

“Come sit with us Anna”. She made her way towards her mother and perched on the sofa gently. “She looks a lot like you Clarise”. Compliments were exchanged but none of that eased Anna from the uncomfortable stare coming from James.  “I think we should give this kids space to talk” ‘OMG, Dad, don’t leave me with him’ Anna screamed in her head. “I heard you added something to your patio Alan, maybe we should have a look”. With that they left them alone.

 

There was an awkward silence in the air. None of them said anything. Anna looked everywhere except his eyes. She could feel his stare on her even without looking at him. She almost jumped out of her seat when he cleared his throat. Damn, she must look like a wimp to him. He stood up and started to walk up to her. Anna could swear her heart is gonna jump of through her mouth any time. He dragged a small cushioned stool, placed right in front of her and sat on it. All this while never breaking his intense stare on her.

 

“Anna right”. Gosh, his voice is so deep. “Yeah”. She managed to hiccup her answer out. “You’re very beautiful Anna”. She could feel heat rushing to her face. “But I want you to know I’m not a sweet or romantic sort of a guy. That entire gentleman shit, well, that ain’t me”. “I don’t like to be nagged and I prefer to do things my way”. “I know this sounds awful to you and honestly you seem like a sweet, gentle person. I just want you to know what you’re getting yourself into before you agree on marrying me”. “This marriage is not of my choice but I’m not in a position to call it off but I do hope you consider whatever I said before agreeing”. With that he stood up and left to join the rest in the patio.

 

What just happened? What does he mean by not his choice? He wants me to consider? Doesn’t he know my parents make all the decision here? Anna sat there till her parent walked back in after sending off the Archers. “Well pumpkin, what do you say. Did you both get along well?” . “Dad, I don’t think so he likes me a lot, I think...” “Nonsense, he told us he likes you and it’s up to you if you would have him or not. He is a great guy and their family is perfect for you and...” he went on and on but Anna could hear anything. She doesn’t know what she expected but definitely not this.

 

She could sense herself getting into a cage with no way out.
