Chapter 1 ( The wedding)
Joyous celebration as my sister was about to get married, everyone was busy with the wedding preparations, I walked past the ongoing decorations down the stairs heading to my sister's room.
I walked in and caught her in the arms of another man.
"Kate, what's going on here?'
I slammed the door hard and dragged her up.
She gets furious and back slapped me with her other hand, "don't you dare!". She warned.
I held my cheeks gazing in disbelief, did my sister just raise her hand on me?
"Kate, you slapped me?".
"Yes, and I'll do it again"
She answered back, grabbing the hand of the same guy I caught her with.
Kate hugged him in front of me and too much surprise had no stroke of shame in her eyes.
What's going on?
If that wasn't enough drama, mom walks in.
I turned and saw the displeased look on her face.
She stumped close and angrily slapped Kate, Kate falls to the ground, gasping.
"You're so useless, haven't I warned you about this man here?"
Kate rose up and back chats mom.
"No mom, you haven't and even if you did, I will never leave, Christian".
I stood and watched their drama, trust me I had no idea what was going on.
What kind of relationship does my sister share with the man here? Mom was so furious, that she stumped out of the room leaving me behind.
Kate turns her face and pushed the gifts sent by the groom's family.
"Sister, tell me why are you doing this?."
I had to understand why and what was going on, she turns and grabbed me by the hand to the window.
"Do you see that?"
She points to the huge banner hung at the gate.
"Yes I do, what's going on?
I asked again.
Kate fixed my eyes back to her, she placed my hand on her head and said, "promise me that you'll do whatever I ask of you?".
Once again Kate had me curiously dumb, I pulled my hands back and demanded an explanation.
"Tell me, what promise?."
"That you'll have to marry Kalyan in my place,".
She says waiting for my response.
I couldn't get myself to give her a direct answer, so I fled clenching my hand.
Unable to vent more of her anger on me, Kate bottled them down with a devious look on.
Mom met me coming down, she confirmed if Kate was still in her room and rode past to meet her.
I didn't bother to hear what she might want to tell her, and so walked away.
I stepped outside and dad was seen making a few calls on his phone, he was so happy inviting his friends to his daughter's wedding, the same person who's willing to switch places with me.
Hours passed, the wedding began, guests came with congratulatory gifts for my family, and Kate was still up getting dressed.
I refused to go in to meet her, but unfortunately, mom had that task given to me.
I rode into Kate's room and she turns seeing me at the doors opening.
"Welcome sis, I'm still waiting for your response?".
She says shaking her legs.
"Look, Kate, I don't have anything to say to you and please get ready because everyone is waiting for you".
I turned around to leave, but Kate rushed and blocked my path.
"Alina, is this how much you love me, we might not be blood sisters but remember, I made my parents adopt you and gave you a home," she dragged me close, "you owe me, Alina".
