Summary

With his glass off bubbly in his hand, my father enters my room. “Talia, you are now 16. You will be wed in 5 days time. Ronald will pay our family to let him take you.” “Father please! Don’t do this to me” “Talia. Do not start. Go to bed, you and your mother will be dress shopping tomorrow. Do not be late up” “Fa-“ “ENOUGH! Bed. Now.” “Yes father.” After hearing the door close, I jump into the shower and rinse my hair before quickly washing myself off.

Chapter One

16 years ago (Sierras POV)...
“Jacob we cannot sell our daughter! I will not allow it!”
“Sierra I do not want a girl! She will ruin this family!”
“She’s our daughter! You can’t speak that way! How dare you”
“Sierra do not start. You should know better then to question me. I own you.”
“You do not own me! Just because we were wed does not mean anything!”
“Sierra, that is enough. Name the brat and fill out the forms. I am done here.”
“I give birth and you want me to fill out the forms, name our daughter and recover all by myself? Jacob, you are not the man i thought you were.”
“Neither of us chose this, do not expect me to love or want you. I don’t”
I have a daughter. She’s so beautiful, reminding me of my mother. How dare he? I didn’t want this life! I wanted to travel and marry someone I love. Considering we were both forced into this, I thought he’d at least try, there is no way out after all!
Right now I don’t even care about any of this. I’m a mother. I didn’t realise I could cherish and love something so much after knowing them for so little. How do you name someone? Do you just choose a name and be done with it? Should I know what her name is? I don’t know how i’m supposed to do this by myself. It’s not like I have anyone to do it with and my daughter shouldn’t be raised by nannies whilst I sit knitting all day. She reminds me off my mother so much, her beautiful brown eyes look exactly like my mother’s. Maybe I should just name her after my mother? Talia, Talia Antoni. Beautiful. World meet your newest lion cub, Talia Antoni.

Present time (Talias POV)...
Roses are such a lovely flower! Being sat in my garden reminds me of all the beautiful things in the world. They remind me of the sweetest souls of the world. People can be so cruel yet looking at these flowers just takes all my thoughts and fears away. Beautiful.
Deciding it’s time to go back inside before my father kills me, I stroll to the kitchen. In the Kitchen I see my gorgeous mother cooking her special Hunters Chicken.
“Good afternoon mother”
“No need to be so posh darling, your fathers out” my mother giggles
“Sorry mother. How are you?”
“I’m lovely darling, how are you?”
“I’m good thank you mother, is that your famous Hunters Chicken you’re cooking?”
“Of course, it should be ready at 7pm. I would go up to your room now, your father should be home soon. I wouldn’t want to be near him if i had a choice.”
“Of course mother” i giggle
I make my way upstairs but as soon as I close my bedroom door I hear the front door slam.
“SIENNA”
Here he goes again, good luck mother. If there is another power in this world please protect my mother from this man, I beg you.
The yelling soon dies down and I decide to start reading my new book. I like to read books about the history of many different countries. I steal all these books from my fathers study considering all the books he buys me seem to be about cooking and how to be a housewife. I really despise the books he gets me but I couldn’t comment on them. He’d most likely take his anger out on my mother and I couldn’t let that happen.
It’s been about 10 minutes since i’ve started this book and i’m actually really enjoying it! It’s teaching me a lot and I love learning new things much to my father trying to forbid me from reading any book from his study.
With his glass off bubbly in his hand, my father enters my room.
“Talia, you are now 16. You will be wed in 5 days time. Ronald will pay our family to let him take you.”
“Father please! Don’t do this to me”
“Talia. Do not start. Go to bed, you and your mother will be dress shopping tomorrow. Do not be late up”
“Fa-“
“ENOUGH! Bed. Now.”
“Yes father.”
