Every girl at one point in her life dreamed of what her wedding would be like.
What kind of dress she'd wear? Who she'd marry? Everything down to the last detail. We girls have thought of it.
From the moment I found out I was being married off to Ian Myers I knew that my dream wedding was ruined. I knew then that I would be in a loveless marriage. After all his heart belongs to another.
Samantha Danley, his childhood sweetheart. He never paid attention to any woman other than Samantha.
They were supposed to marry each other last year it was supposed to be the wedding of the century.
That is until he found her having sex with his best man/ best friend Dominic Marks. At least that's what the blogs said. Nonetheless, he still dates Samantha but refuses to bring up the rekindled relationship to the public eye.
From that moment on Ian was a different person. He became a playboy he soon started to be seen multiple females every day of every week.
I am absolutely fine that his heart will never belong to me. After all, I refuse to be someone's backup plan.
I guess you can say in a way I am a backup plan. But also not this situation benefits both families accordingly my dad's business reaches new heights and Ian's company gets the merger they've been looking for.
As for me, I don't get anything out of it.
Being the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy man. I haven't been treated right. I have an evil stepmother and sister. They tortured me from the moment I was born to the moment I moved out. Even though I wasn't treated well by them doesn't mean I can't take care of myself.
You are looking at the CEO of Sunshine Industries.
I think of creative ideas for commercials for high-end products. Such as Versacé, Gucci, Prada, etc. I've always loved fashion but I never believed in my skills to design much. So I created my own company from the bottom up with no help.
We've been married for three years now. We live in two separate wings of the house. We do not do anything together.
Making my way through the house going towards the kitchen to make a cup of coffee before I head to work. As soon as I walk into the kitchen I'm shocked by what I see.
Ian & Samantha spread out over the table fucking each other's brains out. Ian spots me coming in and continues to thrust into her staring directly into my eyes.
"Are you enjoying the show?"
I scoff in disgust.
"Huh! Why would I? If I wanted to see a whore get fucked I'd just watch porn.'
With my last words, I walk out and head to the office. Forgetting about grabbing coffee. Twenty minutes later I make it to my office building. Walking through the lobby heading towards my private elevator.
"Good morning Mrs. Myers".
My receptionist suddenly greeted me.
"I told you not to call me by that name. My last name is still Jovie no need to address me as Mrs. Myers. Miss Jovie is fine."
She nods but before we could speak once more my assistant comes rushing towards me out of breath.
"Boss, there are some documents you need to sign before the mailman comes to pick them up to deliver them to Versacé. You also have a meeting in twenty minutes."
"Ok, I'll meet you in my office."
I walked away not waiting for a response. I get in the elevator and pressed 10 my office is at the top of the building well basically the whole tenth floor is my office.
I get out of the elevator and head to my office. As soon as I come in I see the documents he was referring to. I signed them put them in a large envelope stamped my signature on the package and tossed it in the bucket for outgoing mail
Twenty Minutes Later
"Your ten o'clock meeting has just arrived."
"Okay, send them in, please."
"Mrs. Your, ten o'clock meeting is now ready shall I send him in?"
"Yes, thank you that is all."
I went back to being immersed in my work I didn't even hear the person come in. It was not until I smelled a familiar smell that I haven't smelled in years that made me lookup.
"So now you notice there's someone other than you in the room eh?"
"Oh my god, Jaxon! What are you doing here? I haven't seen you in forever."
"Of course, it's me who else would it be. We also have a meeting to attend to, so shall me MRS. MYERS."
"Jaxon it's no-."
"It's cool Cata, I left I didn't expect you to wait for me even though you promised."
He said looking aggravated. I want to explain. But I know he won't hear it. I walked behind my desk tapping my fingers impatiently.
"Okay fine whatever. What brings to my company, Mr. Hendry?"
"I need you to come up with an idea for the new upcoming car my company is promoting. I need it for the reveal party when we release the car for the world to see. Like a movie premiere."
"Ah okay, amazing I like it. We could set a meeting to come up with ideas that you'd like when are you free?"
"I'm free today."
"Okay let's do lunch then and we ca-."
Suddenly my door pushes open. Ian and Samantha come walking in hand in hand. While Ian's free handheld a packet of papers.
"We're not interrupting, are we?"
She asked putting on a fake face of concern.
"Yeah, you are actually."
I looked at her in disgust.
I do not like her, not because she's with Ian but because even though I've made it clear that I do not want him.
She lies to Ian telling her I did something to her just to make him hate me more. I can't tell you why he hates me
"Well, then I'll make this quick."
Just then he smacks the papers down on my desk. Looking down I see their divorce papers.
I glance up to see Samantha staring at me with a big smile. She not even hiding her hatred and excitement from me.
"Sign it so we can be done with this ridiculous marriage. But you should know something. When we got married your father signed over your shares of his company to me. I'll be giving them to my future wife as a pre-wedding gift."
I took the pen and signed the papers. I handed it back to him without a second thought.
"If you think I care then you are sorely mistaken. That man has done nothing but causes me pain. Then on top of that, he put me in an arranged marriage with you. I stopped caring about what he did a long time ago. But congrats may you live happy and healthy."
I said giving him my best smile.
"Now if you'll excuse me I have work to do!"
Ian looked at me shocked. And Samantha was seething I guess my reaction wasn't what she thought it would be. I picked up my phone and called Tony.
"Just Ms. Jovie is fine, can you tell me how I ended up with two unwanted guests in my office?"
"B-boss he pushed past! I didn't have enough time to notify you."
"It's alright I need security in my office. I have unwelcome guests in."
Ian looked at me in disbelieve. Soon enough two burly security guards came through my office door.
"Marcus, Thomas please escort them out and see to it that everyone in this building knows they are not allowed to step foot in it again."
They said simultaneously.
With that, they took them out not before Ian yelled at me.
"YOU'LL PAY FOR THAT!"
"Damn, don't you think I've been tortured enough for the past three years pretending to love you?"
With that, I slammed the door in his face.
