It wasn't until one night when Alex showed up at my doorstep that I finally opened up to him. I told him everything, about the drug business and Johnson's proposal. I could see the pain in his eyes as I explained everything to him. He begged me not to leave him, but I had made my decision. I knew that it was over between us, and I couldn't risk him getting involved in my family's mess. As he left that night, I could feel my heart breaking into a million pieces. I knew that I had to marry Johnson and put an end to this nightmare, but I couldn't shake the feeling that I was making a huge mistake. Deep down, I still loved Alex, but I couldn't let my emotions cloud my judgment.

Chapter 1: Feelings At First Sight

They didn't care about my family's wealth or status, and we had been inseparable since elementary school.One day, we decided to go to the fancy hotel in town for lunch. It was one of my favorite places to eat, and the food was always amazing. As we walked in, I noticed a guy in the kitchen who caught my eye. He was tall, muscular, and had a certain air of confidence that made him stand out from the rest of the staff."Who's that?" I asked, pointing to the guy in the kitchen."I don't know," Sarah said. "But he's definitely new here."Becky nudged me. "Why don't you go talk to him? He's cute."I rolled my eyes. "No way. I don't even know him."But as we sat down to eat, I couldn't help but keep glancing over at the kitchen. And to my surprise, the guy came out with our food.
