Chapter Five: Julius Part FourMature

“Julius, Maris, is your husband-to-be.  You will be getting married next week.”  She responded.  I looked at her in shock.  Out of all people, never would I have ever imagined that I would be marrying Julius Matterbourne, the snotty seventeen-year-old son of the mayor, the rude fat boy who looked and sounded like a twelve-year-old and the same fat boy who gobbled up my food!  I can’t believe this.  As I sat quietly and stoically in my chair my body language and facial expressions started to transition from emotionless shock to anger.  I was livid.  I sprang up from the chair with the gem and stamped up the stairs, not even bothering to say anything to anyone.  I was pissed, extremely pissed.  I didn’t want to speak to anyone.  I just wanted to sit in my room, sulk and cry.  Now I see why Palvia was so emotional about this.  It is an utter disaster when you find out you have to marry someone that you hardly know.

      I went into my room and changed into my night-slip.  I got into bed with the gem and just lied there, silently.  I cried silently all the while stroking the gem for comfort.                                                                  

      “Oh I wish I weren’t marrying him of all people.”



The End
