This story was written as my response to a secondary school assignment. I came across it in an old journal.
Back in the day I used to love writing fictional stories – especially romance so it was really exciting and nostalgic to read this again. I hope you enjoy it.
PS. I’ve tried to leave it as ‘original’ as possible 😁
It was a terrible thing in my life for the man I loved so much to…
It all started when I, Miss Julie, went to start my new contract with Charisma Holdings.
On that day, my boss required my application file. I had gone to his office to submit it.
As I entered my Boss’ office I was captivated by the most handsome and mesmerising face I had ever seen in my life. I managed to control myself, greet my boss and submit the file, but all the while I couldn’t help the feeling that his eyes were on my every move.
Throughout the day, I couldn’t get him out of my head, but I managed to pull through the first day of my contract successfully.
As I left the building, about to leave the car park, a blue Lambhourgini pulled up to me and then the window was wound down I was shocked to find Tony, as I earlier found out his name was. He offered to give me a ride to my place. I declined at first but due to his sweet charms I have in.
We got talking in the car and it happened that he asked me out. On normal circumstances I would have objected, but because the chemistry was so strong and the fact that I was attracted to him, I gave in.
Tony and I started a steady relationship after that encounter in the car.
He was so caring and the best friend a girl could dream of. Two months into the relationship he proposed to me and I willingly obliged. The wedding was planned to be held two weeks from then.
On my wedding eve at about 8:30pm I received a distant phone call from my very good friend Nadine, who was based abroad. She had called to inform me of her upcoming wedding. I was so happy for her and I asked who the lucky guy was and when I heard the name, I froze. I was dumbfounded because he was no other than my fiancé, Tony Mckenzie.
The whole world was lost to me when I realised… I had been Jilted by a lover.
Not bad for a high school writer huh? 😄 let me know what you think.
