"What do you mean I'm engaged?" I asked incredulously. "There's no freaking way I'm-"

"Read it again." The lawyer in front of me says and I squint my eyes at him as I pick the stupid sheet of paper up and read it as he says, but I can't find it. The man sighs before speaking. "Number 9, sub-clause 7-d: I solemnly agree to a sworn promise of celibacy and to-"

"Marry the man liable for my educational and living expenses..." I finish off. "Oh you've got to be kidding me, it's in the fine print!" I exclaim and the lawyer smirks at me.

"Unfortunately Mr. A, does not wish to disclose any further information. But please enjoy your stay." The lawyer says and I squint my eyes at him.

"Mr. A?" I asked and the man grins.

"Stands for Mr. Anonymous. Has a nice ring to it, no?" The lawyer says and I fume as he packs up his suitcase.

Darcy Bleu was your average high school graduate who was desperate for a way into her dream university. After finding her "dream" scholarship on an online newsletter, Darcy finds herself signing away and travelling to a new country- only to find that she'd been completely fooled. The scholarship covered everything she would need- she just didn't see one little thing coming- getting engaged to a total stranger.

A/N: Just to make things more colorful, all of Darcy's outfits and my location inspirations are in every chapter. ;) Enjoy.

All I have to say is that out of all the arranged marriage stories I've read this seems like the the least cliche one and its just a really ingenious idea and I can't wait to read it
