CHAPTER I: THE ENGAGEMENT
Quinn Fabray was finishing some designs for her next clothing line when she heard the door bell rang. She opened the door and found her mom and dad standing in front of her. She knew that if her father was at her apartment something bad was happening.
"Mom, what's going on?" Her father was the one who talked.
"Hi, Quinn. Can we come in?" Quinn nodded and stepped aside to let them in.
"Can I offer you something?"
"We're fine" Her mom and dad sat on the couch.
"So, what's going on?" Quinn wasn't really in the mood to be patient, she had been working the whole day, she was tired and all she wanted to do was finish her designs and sleep until the next day. After seconds of only hearing their breath she sat on a chair close to her and looked at them, her dad was the first one who talked.
"We have bad news, Quinn" he said, looking at the floor. She wasn't surprised, she had barely seen her dad since she got pregnant at sixteen, he had kicked her out of his house and when she came back her mom and him were separated because he had cheated on her, so of course she knew they had bad news.
"What is it?"
"Things aren't going well in the company"
"How bad is it?" Quinn closed her eyes slowly and sighed.
"They are really bad, if we don't do something fast..."
"We could loose everything" her mom talked for the first since they had arrived.
"Oh my God" Quinn whispered as she covered her face with her hands. She was concerned, that company was paying her fashion designer career, she worked there mid-time. What the hell was she going to do? Her future was in that company. "What are we gonna do?"
"We have a proposal from a friend of mine, whose company isn't going really well, but I don't know if you'll agree with this"
"What is it?"
"He said he could help us if you... If you married his son" her father said.
Quinn removed her hands from her face quickly, looking at them with disbelief.
"You are kidding, right?"
"Not at all. I understand if you don't want to do this, but it's the only way to save the company" he said.
"Is this guy crazy? How can I marry some random guy?"
"I know, Quinnie. I told your dad you wouldn't accept it, it's crazy"
"Look, we can't just join companies, people would start talking about it, and for a company that's not good. The only way to do this is like this"
"I want to meet him before I accept the offer" Quinn said dryly.
"Really?" Her dad said, surprised.
"Yes, if I can save the company by marrying this guy, I'll do it."
"Ok, I'll call you tomorrow when I have an hour for you 'date'" he said.
"Bye" she said opening the front door. "Bye, mom"
They left and Quinn went straight to bed, after that day she wouldn't be able to keep working at all. She fell asleep thinking about the next day, she couldn't believe she was going to marry a guy she didn't even know but she needed to do it.
Sam Evans was at his office, he was working at his dad company to make some money but he knew that was kind of impossible because the company wasn't in a good time. He leaned his back against his chair and rubbed his eyes with his hands. He was tired, his life was a mess, he had dropped college because he didn't want to be an architect, he wanted to be a lawyer but his dad wasn't really happy with that, so he talked with Sam and convinced him to work at the company for a while to think about his future. He understood why his dad wanted him to be an architect, because that way he could take care of the family business, but he wasn't looking forward to it. Sam's thoughts were interrupted by a 'knock' on the door.
"Son, how are you?" His dad opened the door and sat.
"I have good news" he said as Sam sat straight. "I found a way to save the company"
"Really?" Sam smiled. "That's awesome. What do we have to do?"
"A friend of mine is in the same situation that we are, his company needs help, so we were thinking of joining companies"
"That's a really good idea"
"Yes, but we can't just join them because people would start gossiping about it and that wouldn't help us."
That was truth, it was almost impossible for a company to show that everything was fine when you were joining another one. People would start wondering why, so it wasn't a good idea. They had to find a way to join companies without anyone knowing what was going on.
"Then, what are we gonna do?"
"Ok, this might sound weird, but the only solution is..." His dad sighed.
"Y-You have to marry his daughter"
"I know it sounds crazy but it's the only way to save the company"
Sam was in shock, he couldn't believe that his dad was actually asking him to marry a girl he didn't even know. He thought about his law career, he wouldn't be able to even start it if the company was broken. He just sat there, thinking about his options but after several minutes he understood this was then only one.
"I'll do it"
"In that case, get ready, you're about to meet your fiancee"
Sam sighed and walked to his father's car, he didn't know if he was ready to meet her but if it was the only way to help his dad and his family he'll do it. Anyway, this girl couldn't hurt him as much as her, the love of his life.
