Billions of hearts were crying with the news of Alexander getting married today. But he stood there with no excitement on his face. The arrangement and the setup reminded him of something so dark. He gulped them deep inside so that he could forget them anytime soon.
"Elsa is not there" Ron Taylor trembled in fear when he broke the news to his wife. Back in the main hall:
"Boss, Madam Elsa is missing," Mac said, as punctual as ever. Before her parents came to know about it, Mac had discovered the news. Alex shifted his gaze to the Taylors, who were already shivering.
Alex passed a message to Mac to pass it on to Taylor. He couldn't let history repeat itself. If he is here, he will not return home empty-handed. His marriage would happen for sure, as per his family's wish. For that, he was willing to do anything.
Inside the bride's room:-
"Boss asked me to deliver a message," Mac broke the news as Ron stiffened in his position. He knew that the information would be something they would not like. Would they back off from investing in their company? But what else would they expect?
"Elsa is not the only daughter you have," Mac delivered the words as spoken by Alex. Of course, Ron could sense the chill behind the words. But could he ask his daughter to do this? He never would. She would never listen to him.
"Even I am not the only daughter you have left with," Mac widened her eyes at Clara's words. She couldn't be so evil as to ask them to consider Alina, their younger daughter, who was 18 years old. Age is not a matter, but how could she ask them to consider Alina when she was the elder among everyone?
"You can save us. I have never asked you for anything," Ron Taylor spoke, but Clara was nowhere listening to his nonsense talks. Mac left the place as he knew this girl would eventually accept the offer and come in a few minutes.
"If your drama is over, I shall leave the place," Clara took her purse, but Elena, the grandmother of Elsa and Alina and the mother of Clara's stepmom, Bella, stopped Clara at the entrance with a sharp gaze. "Be sure that you have nothing to lose before you deny helping your father," Elena's words were curt and scary.
"Paxton!" Elena whispered near her ears as Clara's eyes enlarged immediately. They couldn't blackmail her like this, could they?
Clara stood there without asking any questions. She wanted to see what this old lady was up to.
"He is just ten years old. Just imagine what he will do when he comes to know about his birth secret?" Elena was one cruel woman for sure. Clara looked stunned. She couldn't back off, especially when it concerned Paxton. She promised her mom that she would look after Paxton, her brother.
After a silence of two long minutes, Clara composed herself. Though she had an extremely rough life with her father and others, she always maintained her dignity and elegance in almost everything. Her calm and composed nature resembled her mom, and her decisions were always accurate and sharp.
"I can't just wear this dress. Ask Jenny to deliver the top model's dress that I designed exclusively for the Global fashion show," Clara started removing her light makeup as her parents stood there shocked. What had Elena done in just five minutes? They couldn't hear their conversation. "I have to look good in my marriage, don't I?" she asked again as both came out of the shock and nodded their heads vigorously. Bella, her stepmom, informed her assistant to deliver the dress quickly. She didn't want Clara to change her mind.
"Do you take Alexandra Fernandez as your better half? Are you willing to share your life with him?" Clara snapped open her eyes, hearing the priest's words. Should she say no and run away?
She looked around, and her hands started shaking. She didn't want to marry this person for sure. But could she bear the weight of denying this marriage?
"Yes, I do," she replied. She is aware that she couldn't say no.
"I declare you both as husband and wife," the priest announced them as husband and wife.
Alex was known for his rudeness in the business circle. His cold behavior made him a hero.
His soft nature was unknown to the world except for a few in his family.
Clara was like Cinderella in that tale. Did she meet the real Prince Charming?
Both struggled a lot in their past. Would they help in healing each other or end up hurting each other?
