He threw some paper towards me, on my face, and told me to sign them. I was wondering what are these papers about, what to do with me, and why I have to sign them.
I asked, "what's written in these papers and why I have to sign them?"
"Just take your time babe, and read them on your own," he said and went out of the room but this time he didn't lock the door.
I picked up the papers from the floor and for some reason, I had the feeling my fate was literally typed out for me on these sheets of paper.
Instead of torturing myself by thinking about what could be typed out, I closed my eyes and took a deep breath before looking at the papers.
PLEDGE Of "CONTRACT MARRIAGE"
I ___________ solemnly swear to agree with All the terms (to be referenced below) on this contract or otherwise face the consequences.
The code of honor that places importance on silence, non-corporation with authorities, and non-interference in the illegal actions of other parties.
This marriage means nothing but a show off to the world and remained for whole one year, during this one year you are not allowed to tell anyone about this contract otherwise you have to pay 10 million dollars as a punishment.
You are not allowed to interfere in the other party's personal matters.
You are not allowed to be in a relationship in this one year of a contract marriage and if you are found to be in a relationship you have to pay 5 million dollars as a punishment.
Do not take drugs or become highly intoxicated by alcohol, you could accidentally expose this contract.
You are nothing but a stranger in the walls of a house and have nothing to do with others' business.
As I continued to read the contract I felt more and more sickened by the minute. What is this world where people like his lived in?
The next few rules were pretty much the same as the beginning, just in a lot more detail and a few added extras that weren't as bad as the previous rules.
Although, when I got to the end of the contract was when I really felt trapped...
In the period of the contract, you Belong to other parties. In short, you are his property for a whole one year and can't do anything without his permission, you have to obey all orders without any questions.
If the rules are broken, depending on which rule, you will be delivered with a punishment which includes paying with money just in case if you don't have the exact amount then you have to pay with your body. The most severe of which is death.
(This is to be carried out if you do not sign the contract and/or attempt to flee)
My stomach turned.
I felt tears stream down my face. What the fuck! I screamed internally, the paper shaking due to the lack of stability in my hands.
I'll never sign this god damn contract. This is my life not his, I don't have anything to do with him. I don't know why he's doing all this to me, what have I ever done something wrong with him. In fact, I don't even know who he is.
And if I wasn't trapped enough before, I certainly was now.
I wiped my face, got out of the room but when I stepped out I was shocked this wasn't just some ordinary house, it was a penthouse I wondered how rich is he?
I was searching for him when a maid came a said, "Miss, do you want something?"
"Where's that son of bitch?" I asked and was frustrated.
She got horrified and seemed panicked but said, "Do... by any chance do you mean master William?"
"Ohh, so that's his name WILLIAM." But suddenly reality hit me and I became numb no no no plz God don't tell me he's William Vernanda the famous playboy and top succeeded person at this young age, CEO of almost all big companies in this country, some out of the country. I was wondering when a sharp and angry voice came from the room behind me.
"WTF, Laila where's my damn coffee?"
I tried to enter the room at his voice but Laila holds my hand and stopped me from entering, "Nobody is allowed to go in this room except Master."
"Ohh okay, then you made me do that, WILLIAM... WILLIAM... GET YOUR FUCKING ASS OUT OF THE ROOM." I was screaming his name like a mad person.
William came out of the room, looking shocked at my use of language but that was the least of my problems right now.
"What... what is this messed up shit?" I shouted.
He turned his face towards dumbfounded Laila, she nodded and left the two of us alone. He grabbed me from my arm roughly, dragged me inside his maybe study room then threw me on a couch.
He watched me for a moment and I saw his jaw clench before he spoke.
"Now, now... what am I going to do with you because of your misbehave?" he spoke confidently, with a hint of venom and amusement."
He asked a rhetorical question he already knew the answer to...
And I didn't want to find the answer so said," What's the damn meaning of this contract? What have I ever done wrong with you?"
He looked me up and down once I'd stood up from the couch before looking me straight in my eyes. His dark eyes looked terrifying and I quickly averted my eyes and looked at the walls behind him.
I heard him almost growl after a few seconds before he grabbed my chin roughly with his large hand and forced me to look at him, I whimpered in fear.
"Why am I doing this to you? Don't you already know the freaking answer bitch, you made me do it. You have made me a joke in front of this whole world, in my own company and asking what's wrong with me?"
Then suddenly realization hit me I understood everything, I understood why he's being like this to me all this time.
"Only for one slap and here you're already willing to make my life a living hell?" I said as the realization hit me.
"It's not just one slap, Jennifer it's not but... whatever just already sign these papers," he said as he threw the contract on my face.
"What? No... Never" I said in one breath.
He chuckled as if he were amused at what I'd just said and spun around leaning against the table.
"Take her in," he said calmly and two men came with... What is I'm seeing correctly?
They came while dragging her forcibly with them...
CHAPTER SEVEN "Vic? Don't touch her, you motherfuckers, leave her alone. Keep your filthy hands away from her "I was yelling. Vic was knocked out. "Now, now, now... What are you going to do, sign the papers or lose your friend?" "Just leave her alone, I'll do whatever you say," were the only words that came out of my mouth. "Take her back to her apartment and don't tell her anything about today; pretend like nothing happened," he told his men as he led Vic away unconscious. "Now listen to me, and listen very carefully, Jennifer Oxford; you're going to do what I'm telling you to do, or you're going to lose the one and only thing you hold dear to your heart." With that, he handed the papers over to me for the final review, but time was running out and I didn't want him around, so I asked for a pen. I slammed the papers on the table behind him after signing them. "I need some alone time in my own apartmen
CHAPTER EIGHT "No! I can't take it, and it's yours; if you don't wear it, you might catch a cold, which I don't want." I told him standingand takingoff his jacket, but his hand stopped me. "No, you need it more than I do, and by the way, if I don't do it, I won't be considered a gentleman," he smirked. "Thank you," was all I could say in response. "No problem, and if you don't mind my asking, why are you sitting by yourself in the middle of the night in this pouring rain?" "Umm..." I thought for a moment before telling him. Should I tell him or keep it a secret? After all, he's a nice guy, and what harm can it do if I tell him? Okay, not the entire story. Maybe a little bit won't hurt much, and he comes from a wealthy family, so he might be able to assist me in dealing with this situation. Yeah... Right now, it's the best situation. I was about to tell him when my inner voice interrupted me. Ar
CHAPTER NINE WILLIAM POV, When she walked away, I was overjoyed with my victory. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be at first, but she eventually accepted her defeat; now she'll never try to mess up my business again and will never forget her place, "Tch,tch, tch...little kitty." I called Roman and told him to set up a press conference as soon as possible because I just wanted to put an end to all the scandals surrounding me and see my adversary defeated, huh they wanted to play with fire. Okay, now I'll show them the true fire that they all awoke in me. JENNIFER POV, "JENNIFER!!" I heard Vic's voice, and she was pounding on my door like a lunatic. I groan to myself and roll out of my tiny bed, which wasn't as comfortable as a king-sized bed. "JENNIFER," she said once more. I yelled, "Coming!" As soon as I opened the door, she jumped on me and b

Once it opened Edward strolled in as if he owned the place, which he could probably have done and I follow him not before giving the security man a brief smile.He smiled back and then closed the door behind us once we had entered the hotel.The inside was just as nice as the outside, there was a huge hallway with paintings and statues and had a long red carpet leading down it.There was nobody in this area so I assumed that they would be where the faint violin was playing."Come." Edward gestured for me to follow him and I quickly complied, hurriedly walking with him while trying hard not to fall in these heels.Edward turned

CHAPTER ELEVEN"What can I get you both, beautiful ladies?" he asked politely with a smile, a strand of black mixed blonde colored hair falling onto his face as he threw the white cloth he held over his shoulder in a dramatic way."Two glasses of red wine and two shots of tequila," Elena said with a smirk and winked her eyes in the bartender's direction."Coming up right now," the barman shook his head in yes and chuckled."Actually, I'll just have a water thank-" I began but Elena interrupted me by putting her hand on my mouth and sighed."Ignore her," she smiled at the bartender before turning to me with a glare "loosen up a little! One shot and a glass of wine won't get you wasted girl," she said as she winks in a smirking way.

CHAPTER TWELVEI was laughing and stumbling as I walked, and Elena had a look of nervousness on her face but I didn't know why.But I didn't stop walking though, I carried on and walked into something strong and hard. "No, come on its fin-... mph" I murmured before I bumped into someone's chest maybe."Oh dear," I heard the faint sound of Elena's voice as she was scared of saying something else.I looked above so that I can see who's chest is this which I bumped inconveniently. As I looked above and saw William, I started giggling, he looked at me in confusion.I pinched his cheeks and started laughing at that time I was totally out of my mind so I said, "William you are too handsome and every girl wants to be with you but why

I tried my best to open my eyes but when I failed, I again laid on the comforted bed. The bed was so soft and comforted that it felt like it's not mine but also I had a strong feeling that maybe I was there before but when? And when I suddenly remembered I said to myself, no, no no how's that even possible maybe I'm just overthinking that's all yeah... that's all nothing else.I was just processing what's happening when I felt a strong grip on my waist and it felt like it got tighter than before. Oh God someone is lying on my back, I can feel his strong chest with built muscles on my back but who is he? And why am I laying on someone else's bed?

CHAPTER FOURTEEN"Don't move your hands because it's time for your punishment so, let me continue, love" he repeated softly and opened my nighty a little so he could see my whole bra."Stop it!" I tried to make my protest valid but my voice shook slightly and he raised an eyebrow, still smirking."I told you to keep your hands," he began with a devilish grin and quickly grabbed them again. "Above your head." He added as he placed them above my head.His mouth began to nibble on my neck and began to go lower and lower. My breathing became to increase and my body started to become hot. My eyes filled with water because my dignity was the last thing which I had at that time but now this was also going to snatched away from me.I w
