The Necklace (Completed)
"SHUT UP!" I yell. I take the ring off and throw it at him. "I hate you! Do you know that? I hate you. I will never marry you. Ever. Why do you think I would marry you?" I start crying. "I don't want to be with you. I don't want to see you again. I don't even like you!"
I look at the ground as tears overtake me.
How could he do that? Why did he do it in front of so many people? 'Witnesses', he said. That belongs in a court case, not a marriage proposal. I can't believe anyone would think I want this...
He comes up to me and puts his hands on my cheeks, forcing me to look in his eyes. "You must act excited about this, Annabeth. You can't tell anyone your true feelings about this, especially Alexander." So that's what this is about. He saw me being friendly with Xander and has to keep me for himself. I always thought he liked me... "If you tell anyone I forced you into this, I'll have you killed, and it will look like an accident."
Annabeth Hutcherson just wanted to find a job so she could see what life was like outside her town. When a handsome gentleman approaches her and offers her the one thing she needs to stay, she accepts. Everything would be provided for her? It was too good to be true. She wasn't aware of the consequences that came with the position, like having to leave all her friends and family, being held prisoner, and... get married?
And then she meets Alexander Matthews, and he changes her whole world. Can he help her get away or will she be stuck forever?
