ng my palms against the dinner table before storming off.

”Adelia! ” called my younger sister Ophelia after me, but I just ignored her as I retreated to my room.

”Let her be. She is far too stubborn to be dealt with. ” said my father and I made sure to stomp up every step on the stairs disturbing their meal.

I was so angry with father, and even more angry with mama.

How dare they plan my future without my consent, and then be displeased with me when I refuse to be their puppet.

What was I?

Just a cattle that they could sell?

Here I thought that my parents loved me more than that..

”Deli? ” I heard followed by a soft knock on my door about an hour after I had left the dinner table, and I knew who it was, ”may I come in? ”

”Come in at your own risk Pheli. I am wild boar up for sale. ”

”Im sorry that I didn take you side Deli. ” she said apologetically and my demeanor softened for I could never mad at my dearest sister for too long.

”Oh its alright, Ophelia, but don you dare expect me to take your side when its time to marry. ”

”Oh don worry sister. I will not refuse like you did. I want to be married. I want to be like those fair maidens in all those books that Ive read.

”You read far too many romance novels Pheli. Men aren even half as considerate in real life. Those fairy tale love are just that. Fairytale. They only exist between the pages, and the sooner you realize that, the better.

”Oh don be such an old hag talking like that Adelia. True love is real, and it is out there. Even for you. Why don you give Alexander another chance? He was once the love of your life wasn he? What changed? ” she asked holding onto my hand.

”It is quite late don you think, Ophelia? Yes it is quite late. I believe it is time for bed. ”

”Okay. I see what you are trying to do here, and I respect your privacy, but please sister, do try to have a wonderful time tomorrow, and be on your best behavior. At least try for me. Please? ” she asked and I sighed giving in, for how was I supposed to say no to my gentle flower.

”Okay my sweet Pheli I will. I will try my best to get along with Alexander, no matter how hard might be. ”

”Thank you. I bid you farewell. ” she said placing a kiss on my cheek before she left.

As soon as she left I began to smile as I removed my crossed fingers from behind my back, which signified that whatever I had just promised was a lie.

There was no way in hell I was going to make things easy for Alexander tomorrow.

If me not wanting to marry him will not affect the arrangements, then him not wanting to marry me shall.

Mama, papa, and Alexander had no idea of what I was capable of, and tomorrow I was going to show it to them.

Oh sweet Aries, please give me the strength.
