A Forbidden Secret (Completed)
What happens when the one you love is the one you should hate?
Jane was an educated, freespirited woman. She grew up and thought differently than most people did in her rural south U.S. because she was taught in the North. As she is a young woman, her parents summon her back home to the well nourished plantation she knew as a young girl from her northern school. Now that she has grown up she wants to impress her family who sent her away.
Will was a hardworking slave. He kept to his business and strongly disliked his position as a black slave. He is a strong man though, very different from his lanky youth. He knows his future is set up with Charlotte, a servant in master's home, by his mother.
But what happens when Jane comes back to the plantation and sets her eyes on Will, as does Will on her? Secret friends as children, will their promise to be secret friends forever be changed by their sudden attraction towards each other? All of this is happening during the beginning of the U.S. civil war, will they be able to survive?
“Well no…”Jane started, “I mean kind of…not in such a harsh way…We plan to have the wedding in June,” she finished.
Will put his hands in his pockets and paced back and fourth. “So yuh just told me yuh love me and now yuh telling’ me your goin’ to marry another man?”
“Yes Will, I mean what could become of us? Really what could, except a scandal.”
“We’ll never be a scandal, not in God’s eyes we won’t, black, white, blue I don’t care I still love yuh and yuh still love me even if I’m a black man,” he looked to her eyes, “no one can take that from us.”
