Money and pride
My father sold me out, I hate my family and hatred is slowly taking over my life. I was forced into a marriage that I didn't want with a billionaire.
My pride couldn't bear his arrogance and cold-heartedness demeanor so I ran away wishing to not get caught.
-"I might not want to be a part of this marriage but why don't you?" he asked in a husky voice.
-"Why can you not want it but I can't, that is why I despise you, Shawn." I spat out.
He grabbed my hand pulling me to his chest as he aimed for my lips, I wanted to back away but his firm grip wouldn't let me. He tried to invade my mouth but I didn't grant him entry so he bit my lip which caused me to yelp and that was his chance to deepen the kiss as he held my waist pinning me to his body.
