His Purchased Wife novel Chapter 9

I stared at dad for a while, completely lost in words. Did I just hear him correctly? He couldn't do that to me!

He must be joking. No, he was joking. Arranged marriages didn't exist anymore. It used to happen in medicinal time, it didn't happen in the 21st century and even if it still exists it certainly did not exist in the USA.

"You can't do that dad!" I said after getting my voice back. He halted in his steps, ever so slowly he turned towards me. His eyes stared into mine and for the first time in my life, I was scared seeing my dad's facial expressions.

"What did you say?" He asked.

"Dad, I am not marrying someone I didn't even know. How could you decide something like this for me!" I asked him?

His brows cleared. "Aurora, you don't know what you are saying. Liam is a nice man, you will like him when you meet him. I know him since he was a child." He tried to persuade me into meeting this Liam or whatever his name was.

"No, I don't want to marry him. Dad, what is all this about? Arranged marriage didn't exist in the modern world. I can't believe you did something like this to me. How could you?"

I sobbed, the day was getting worse and worse. First, my beautiful day with Gabe was ruined. He practically threw me out of his apartment. Hell! I didn't even know where I stood with him and now this. A freaking Arranged Marriage!

Dad pulled me in his arms. I couldn't hold myself anymore and cried in his chest. "My lovely Aurora, my darling. Stop crying baby. Stop crying…"

Dad rubs his hand on my back, soothing me. He kept reciting beautiful words to calm me but I couldn't stop crying.

"Love, Don't cry please. I apologise for hurting you. If my moon doesn't want to marry the man of my choice then I will cancel this arrangement. Just don't ruin your beautiful face."

I gulped. Finally, calmed after hearing that dad will cancel the arrangement. I raised my head from his chest and looked into his eyes.

"Why did you do that dad? Why did you even gave it a thought?" I couldn't help but ask him the reason for doing such a ridiculous thing.

Dad sighed. He placed his hands on both of my shoulders, kissed my head lightly before speaking. "Darling, I am worried about you. I won't be with you forever. What if something happened to me, who will take care of you. You are an innocent girl and this world is cruel Aurora. You have no idea how much I am worried about you. I want someone who I can trust. Who will take care of you, who lives you as much as I love you my darling."
