Love was not the Reason

All Rights Reserved ©


Walking towards the altar, eyes shimmering with fresh tears to give myself to 'Mr Stranger', the husband my late mother chose for me. Mr Knox tried holding my again to escort me and I shrugged him off for the third time. I know he loves me and wants the best for me, but this? Marrying a stranger? No! No! No!, screams through my head. I notice the bestman next to Mr Stranger nugging him and giggling at my attempts to shove Mr Knox. Why did Mr stranger choose me? Why? Why? Why? Then I am standing infront of Mr Stranger, my end game?

Hi Inkitt Faithfuls.

I have enjoyed reading over the years so now I'm attempting my first short story. My first attempt "Love was not the Reason" comes from a bit of personal info, other than that, it's a work of pure fiction straight from my mind and heart.
It does have mature language and content.

Readers please be advise that it's recommended for persons 18 and over.
I will try to make the new chapters teen friendly.
I hope you will kindly give my book a chance and reviews to become better.
Be safe during this crazy year>>> luvs

molly88rose: I chose my rating due to I got into the story once the real plot got going. Otherwise at the start I was feeling like it was just going to be a stupid erotic sappy book (cliché) but happy to say that wasn’t this book!

Cris Tina: I read in some of your comments that you are experiencing writer's block. As lovely as your writing is do take your time to occupy yourself with what serves you as individual outside the writing world. Your brain wants alternatives and variation. It's how it keeps itself in shape. Hyper focus on ... I'm enjoying this book very much on Galatea. I wish it was an app that was more on the affordable side, because I can hardly wait the 6 hours in between chapters.
