chapter 20Vivian didn't know what it was, but she instantly had a strong dislike for this so-called governor's daughter.Moreso, while Anthony was giving the run down moments ago, he never mentioned that they saw or knew each other. Of course, he'd be familiar enough with them, seeing as he knew enough to give a rundown. But it looked like they knew each other well. Too well. Well enough have exchange pecks and kisses."How have you been? It's been a while since we last met", Vivian asked."I've been holding up just fine. You look beautiful tonight", he commented."And you still look as handsome as ever. You still hold the position for the most handsome man I've ever seen", she returned with an elegant smile."Oh please. That's too much", he said, and Vivian watched as his face reddened with blush, while she tried stopping hers from reddening with envy."Awwn. They still look like the cutest couple ever. Just look at them", Margaret Peterson commented and the group laughed. All excep
Chapter 19"Okay. We're about to meet a bunch of very important people for me, and I want to give you a quick round down of what their life looks like, just Incase", he said and sipped his wine as they walked closely, side by side.Despite the fact that Vivian had calm down from the vigor she got from the death ride minutes ago, she still felt her heart besting at a ridiculously high rate. She didn't know what was happening, but this was the first time she'd been this close to Anthony, and she'd never felt this way before. Not only was her heart racing, but it felt like she was receiving sone heat from Anthony's skin."Vivian! Are you even listening?", He jolted her back to her senses."Of... Of course. Of course, I am", she put her focus back into the party."Okay. First of all, don't stare and give glances at the people I'm talking about. Do you understand?""Yep""Good. Now, to your far left, you'll see a group of people talking at table 203-""Where? Where??", She took a sharp tur
chapter 18"What?", Anthony took his eyes off the road and stared at Vivian, who had a crooked smile on her face as she stepped on the pedal. The sudden increase in speed pulled him back, and he was forced to put his eyes back on the road."Vivian, easy on the pedal! Do you want us to die?!", He questioned, shocked at how reckless she was driving.The sudden craze that had he saw in Vivian's eyes temporarily took his mind off what she said earlier.Right now, he was scared that he would lose his life to this maniac."Fuck, my seatbelt is not even on me...", He muttered as he frantically grabbed the seatbelt behind him, dragged webbing across his trunk and locked the metal tongue the buckle.He gripped the roof handle and kept on begging Vivian to stop driving with so much speed."Vivian, this is not a movie... This is real life, and we'll die if you keep driving like a maniac! We might not make it to the dinner party due to your reckless driving!! Please!!", Anthony pleaded with ever
Chapter 17"Vivian, I need your help!", Anthony yelled as burst through her door and barged into her room."Woah! Can't you knock?! What if I was naked?!", She questioned, trying to calm herself from that jump scare."I'm sorry, but this is a matter of urgency", he begged."What's the problem?", She asked."There's a dinner party I'm supposed to be at in the next thirty minutes. It's a meeting with a lot of esteemed guests and a lot of powerful people. Everyone usually tries to show up with a partner by their side. When one shows up with a lady, it shows that you're in a serious relationship or married, and that elevates your status amongst the rest of the guests. I usually show up with my sister to pretend to be my lover, but she's away for her masters...""So... What's my business with the dinner party?", Vivian asked, knowing fully well where Anthony was going with this."I need someone to go with Vivian, if you know what I mean...", He hinted to her.She was going to make sure she
Chapter 16Vivian slowly made her way downstairs, her footsteps echoing through the quiet house. As she descended the stairs, the aroma of something delicious wafted into her nose, causing her stomach to growl in hunger. Curious, she followed the scent, which led her straight to the kitchen.There, she found Anthony, standing by the stove, deeply engrossed in the activity surrounding him. Pots and pans clinked against each other, and the sizzle of something frying filled the air. Vivian's eyes widened as she took in the scene, realizing that Anthony was cooking up a storm."Anthony, what's all this?" she asked, her voice filled with surprise.He turned his head, greeting her with a frown before going back to what he was cooking. "What does it look I'm doing to you?".Vivian probably deserved that.Two days had gone by, and Anthony hadn't spoken to her since she brought him from the hospital and spilled some juice on him. She'd already concluded in her that she was a little bit clumsy.
Chapter 15"Mr. Anthony? Are you awake? Can you see me now?", A distant looming voice called continuously to him. He slowly fluttered his eyes open to see a weird looking man in a whit lab coat standing over him."Good. You're awake now", the man said with a sigh of relief.Anthony craned his neck looking around. He couldn't recognize where he was."Wh... Where am I?", He managed to let out in a mere whisper."You're in the hospital. You were admitted here last night after you passed out from taking a plate of lasagna that had some garlic, which you're allergic to. You're started developing rather serious symptoms to the point where you passed out. Thankfully, you were brought in a ambulance. We managed to stabilize you later that night, but gave you some sleeping pills so you would wake up this morning", the doctor explained.Slowly, memories of what happened happened to him came to mind."You need to thank this young lady here...", He pointed to the woman at the corner of the room
Chapter 14Vivian quickly took out the lasagna out of the oven and placed a portion into a clean plate. Her heart pounding in her chest, she ran to the dining room, where she placed the meal and a cup of water beside it. She nervously walked to living room and she caught sight of the shattered totem lying at a corner of the living room. She cleared everything into a bag just before Anthony walked in.As soon as Anthony stepped in, he sensed something was off. He looked around the living room, but he couldn't exactly tell what was wrong. He was tired of living like this, and it was all thanks to his "lively" roommate. He shook his head as he concluded that there was nothing wrong and it was just his prejudicial instincts.Immediately he stepped him, the aroma of lasagna met his nose. At that point, Vivian came out of the kitchen."Hey! I didn't know you were back! How was work?!", With a grin almost touched both her ears, she walked towards him a hugged him as she took his briefcase f
Chapter 2At the sound of the announcement, Vivian immediately yanked her hand away from the weird looking man they called Morris Cain."Did I just hear you right?""It depends. If you heard us introduce him to you as your husband, then yes. You heard us right", he said with a straight face."Mr. Morris, meet our daughter and your bride-to-be, Vivian Carson. I hope she meets your taste", her mother asked Morris."Oh, yes I am. I'm really satisfied with what I'm seeing her. She would make a great wife", he smiled with pride, and the scar around his jaw got larger.As they ranted on about her features and how she would make a great housewife, Vivian's stomach churned and her intestines twisted badly.What kind of joke was this? Or was she in a bad dream? How could they talk about her like she wasn't even a living thing that had a right to choose?!"Vivian, I want you to spend some time with him and get to know him better, so you'll be following him home tonight. The wedding preparations

Her mum picked the best clothes for her to wear, and she didn't care if it was too tight or, to
