Dawn Greene goes into a steamy relationship with an American player due to a bet but their relationship more than words on paper when they help each other overcome their past. " Don't come closer! " she begged quivering by the wall as he closed any path of escape. He raised up her chin with two fingers, " Isn't this what you wanted ,skin to skin ,lips or lips. Why are you afraid my cute bunny? " She closed her eyes tightly wondering how she got her in the place place " I own you " Dawn heard him say , in a firm and cold tone. " Say it " he ordered grabbing her waist. " You own me " these were they last words she said before he devoured her.
In a private restaurant that serves only steak in the heart of the city in France.
A blonde lady in a tight hug black shining strapless knee-length gown. Her beautiful long hair is braided in a French braid and lips painted with sparkling red lipstick and a scent of Eau de perfume mixer in the air. Dawn's focus is on her plate and she savours every bite inattentively and does not notice the guy with ink-black hair and cerulean blue eyes staring at her intently from the other side of the table.
The sharp gaze of her blazing savannah green eyes met with the handsome gentleman. This made the delicious steak in her mouth taste like a burnt heart. She instantly took a long sip of the blue liquid in her royal blue glass to break the awkwardness.
‘Merde! Was I eating too fast again ' she thought twisting her lips to the left like one who has been busted by her mother while stealing a Popsicle. Her shy eyes looked away and back at him and again swung to her plate.
The man she was eating with is her long-time best friend and recent boyfriend of three years, Luca Martinez. She had seen him in a mall at the ring section and without a doubt thinks he wants to pop the big question yet every moment made her nervous. Did she honestly want to marry this man? Sure he is wealthy a big CEO of a design company and he is beau, dashing and philanthropic. He is every girl's dream but not hers.
Is this what she wants?
He will make her happy, he loves her but...
Shoving all her thoughts by gulping an entire glass, Dawn wiped the corner of her mouth nicely and fabricated a mild smile.
Luca's complexion become white and place his hands wiped his face in shock." What have you done? "
The calm atmosphere became buried in incredulity.
Sucking in the air she said impavidly “Anything wrong ".Dawn was astounded by the recent change, his face beamed with acquiescing and now he glimpsed as awestruck.
Luca's blue eyes became dark, he licked his lower lip causally and chimed in “You swallowed the ring I had to propose to you.
Three months later
In a garage sale on Mariana Lively -- Alarie mini-mansion. Dawn walked out in a sunny flair dress and a tight ponytail to match, her blonde hair had blue highlights on both sides. She carried a brown box barely able to breathe when she set the box down. She gasp for air and placed both hands on her hips restlessly.
“Heh, two more at the back " a cold voice ordered from behind it was Marianne, Dawn's best friend and the person having the garage sale.
Dawn turned to her and gave her an obvious look telling them she was tired and how exhausting she looked was not enough to prove her point.
Marianne is a tall average looking person with black hair and eyes. She is about to get married and is clearing out things from her house for spring cleaning through a garage sale before moving in with her son to be her husband.
“I know, I know…You are stressed.” Maria rolled her eyes forth and back when she noticed Dawn did not get the sarcasm in her tone.” I am getting married in three days and you are the one looking all worked up. Fuck!, it's been three months”
“I said no ” Dawn muttered dejectedly removing the glass figurines from the brown box and beautifully positioning them on a table covered with a colourful blanket.
“If he can't take rejection, fuck him! " Marriage grunted pushing her hair behind and tugging them neatly behind her small ears.
“I swallowed the ring "she utter bummed out while her shoulders dropped.
“So?, it happens in almost every bad TV show ” Marie walked over and together they placed the box on a table.
"It was his late great grandmother's ring”
Dawn palmed her face in shame. " Did you know how I had to force it out of my body?”
“Oh, don't tell... poop, “Marie asked in shock in barely a whisper.
“No, Marie. I had to make myself vomit. I can never face him again " the softness in her voice had a pinch of pain.
Marianne waved her hands dismissively “Suck it up! He is my husband's best man. Therefore it was must he must attend and Marie was her best friend how can she be absent such a wedding because of a break up.
It was very silly!
The thought ran through her mind aiming at new idea or objective to find a date." Marie suddenly stopped before continuing " And you know what --I will get you a date. So you won't feel left out”
Feeling lighter she inquired more like exclamation.
“Really " Dawn questioned raising her eyes from the ground to the huge smile on Mariane's face.
Marie suddenly uttered in a cocky manner “Promise, I will set you up right now "
They hug again, now Dawn could finally breathe properly. Luca is Marie's soon-to-be husband's best friend. So he must be at the party and one thing will all know is making sure your ex doesn't see you as a loser.
She has been thinking about that embarrassing moment and it was not pretty. What he thought of her matters, he should not see her as a loser. Now she got a date for the wedding. She was happy now.
The phone in her pocket beeped due to a new message from her mother. '' Do not forget diapers for Nora when returning ''.
Nora is the youngest in the family and is the youngest, a one-year-old. Then a list of notifications pops up about a serial killer alert and a rapist. She only sighed and shove the phone into her pocket.

Having enough already Marie gently pushed off Dawn. She straighten her wrinkled shirt " First, you will help me with this garage sale and look over my house after I am gone "
To soothe the teary moment Dawn raised three fingers and swore " Avec ma vie " ( with my life ). They both kicked into laughter.
Dawn bit her lower lip shyly and hugged Marie again. " I will miss you, so much "
" And you too munchy " they hugged for a long time and Marie left to attend to a customer. Soon later the broad lawn is filled with buyers and they auctioned off almost everything except a glass whale figure which Dawn kept as a souvenir in case she missed Marie during her honeymoon and we both know. She will !.
