Rose Amor is the school nerd. She wears big black glasses and keeps her long black hair in a ponytail. She stays out of drama and keeps to herself. She knows that's the only way to hide from her past, so she's happy like that. No risks = no trouble. Ryder Brown is the school's new student, soon to be the schools, bad boy. He wears his pants low, fights anyone who starts anything with him and uses girls like he uses tissues. Running one of the world's most powerful gangs, he doesn't care. So what happens when Rose and him meet? What happens when the nerd gets bold and the bad boy gets possessive?
"What the hell are you doing?" I asked as he slowly stepped closer to me. "Taking what's mine." He stated looking directly into my eyes as he took another step forward. I step back and start to turn to run until I feel arms around my waist and my back is suddenly pressed against his chest. Oh no. I feel his breath on my neck and shudder. "You're mine, Lucy, no matter who claims you, I'll always be there to pick up the leftovers." His promise stirrers something in me. He starts kissing my neck, making his way down. I moan. As he begins to unbutton my dress I turn and kick him as hard as I can in his groin. "I will never be yours, not now, not ever." I walk off not as confident in my promise as I felt I should've been. James Brown and me. Ha. Who woulda thought? Lucy Freeman never expected James Brown to ever look her way. Ever. They lived in two different worlds. She was poor. He was rich. She has to work hard to get what she wants. He gets it in a snap of his fingers. He was a bad boy. She had never gotten in serious trouble. So when Lucy starts working as his personal assistant and James starts looking at her as more than just a personal assistant, what does Lucy do when she's stuck between losing her job and losing her dignity?
Imagine being in a type of house where you're banned from dating, having two choices- 1. To get married after secondary school. Or 2. To get married after graduating uni. Being a teenager has its pros and cons, well, Khadijah's is a little bit of not following orders. Her father just does not agree with the term dating, he believes that when you're a student then your thoughts should be focused on school and when you get married, you concentrate on your household. ---------- "Khadijah present to me this boy or his family nan da 1 week, if it passes the time i gave you then you give me no choice" he spoke while standing up. I knew he noticed how both my face and mama's were full of questions that's why he added "To marry you off to the person of my choice in 2 weeks and no one has a say in this" with that he left the parlor and i looked at mama who shrugged at me with a 'You have no choice look on her face'. With that, i ran out of the house. ---------- "My heart beats for you Khadijah, feel it" he steadied her left hand to his chest. ----------
She is- A puzzle he wished to solve A riddle he vowed to unriddle. A mystery he desired to unravel A tangled source of happiness he swore to unknot. Will their status in life let them have what the heart wants?
