lifes partner has been chosen for you? ”

”Exactly. Took the words right out of my mouth. ” I said tuning towards the person the only person who was on my side, and that is when I saw him for the first time in what felt like forever.

The rate of my heart had increasingly sped up as he began to smile, and he looked the same, and yet so different.

”Alexander. ” I managed to breath out after a few more seconds has passed by with us staring at each other in silence.

”Adelia. ”

”Its been a while. ” I said as he began to approach me, and in that moment it felt as if it was just the two of us the room, in fact it felt as if it was just the two of us in the world.

”Yes I agree. Its been far too long. ”

”How was your studies in the Americas? ” I asked as he finally stopped to stood in front me as he took my hand and a placed a sweet tantalizing kiss on it like he usually did.

”It was quite refreshing to say the least. What about you my lady? How has your time been? ”

And thats when I remembered how I had lived my years when he was not here, and I pulled my hand from his as I wiped it against my attire as I said, ”the years spent when you were not here were the best years of my life my lord. If only I could relive them again. Better yet, if only you would leave again, only this time don return. ”

”Uhh Adelia may I speak with you for a moment please? ” asked my father as I had a battle of the stare with Alexander, ”please? ”

”Why ever would you want to speak to me in private regarding matters of my own life father? Where was this common decency when you were planning to marry me off without my permission. ”

”Adelia please you are being ridiculous. You knew of this arrangement ever since you were young so what has changed now? ” he asked, and I briefly glanced over at him, before returning my steely gaze to Alexander saying.

”Time changes people father. Whether we like it or not. ”

”I see it has changed you my sweetest flower Adelia. ” said Alexander, and my heart made quite a ridiculous flutter, but I remained unaffected and apathetic.

”As so it did you my dearest Alexander. As so it did you. ”

”Mother, father. We
e leaving. I cannot stand to be in the presence of rude, untidy mistress any longer who doesn know how to behave in the presence of a high class man. ” he said brushing passed my shoulder.

”And here I thought that you were a regular member at the brothel. ” I said, and I smirked when he had abruptly stopped and turned around to give me one final hard cold glare and I folded both my arms over my bosom as I matched his icy gaze.

”It was really nice to see you again dear. ” said Mrs. Astros and I smiled and gave them a polite bow before they left.

”Now that that is settled, lets eat. ” I said, but I was met with an unpleasant slap to my arm from my mother as soon as the guests had left, ”oww! Mamam! ”

”I am disappointed in you Adelia. You have put our family and our name to shame. ”

I looked over at m father, and my sister, and they both seemed to have been sharing the same sentiment for they looked away, and I sighed.

”Margaret! ” called out my mother.

”Yes maam? ”

”Clean this mess of my daughter up right this instant. ” she said waving me off as if I disgusted her, but I was too busy stuffing my face with sweet dessert to care.

”Yes maam. Right away maam. ”

”I swear you can find good help these days. ” she said before leaving with my father and sister behind her, and Margaret hung her head in shame, and thats when I started to feel bad.

”Please. Right this was my lady. ” she begged with her head hung low, and I nodded and followed her to the baths for it was the least I could do.

I had caused enough trouble today already, and I know that I wasn going to hear the end of it.
