Elena Wiltshire's dreams were coming true; she just got accepted into her dream school without the sway of the powerful Wiltshire name! However, when her twin sister's engagement to CEO, Sebastian Dumont, falls through due to her shameful ways, Elena is forced by the familial matriarchs to take her place and avoid an upper-class scandal. Will Elena survive being married to the cold, egotistical CEO especially when he's hiding a secret of his own?
Sebastian strides towards the door, but my father calls him back and stands up, looking deeply ashamed. “Mirabelle, Spencer, I am deeply sorry for this insult Eliana has caused to your family. She has undoubtedly tainted both our names, but we know in order to avoid an even bigger scandal, Eliana would have to wed Robert.” He says, we all knew this would have to happen, even I did and I despised the upper-class rule and regulations. I might be the rebellious heir, but I knew how to toe the line. Spencer nods, “Indeed, she will. But now with that out of the way, what will come of Sebastian’s supposed marriage? Our family’s name will be left tainted because of this.” He gestures towards Robert and Eliana. Sebastian scoffs again, “I will not be getting married, father-” “But you must. If the public finds out about Eliana and Robert, we will be pariahs in our circles.” Mirabelle says shaking her head and looking dismayed, then her eyes flicker towards me. “Unless…” Unless? Unless what, Mirabelle?! The look in her eyes softens as she takes me in with a warm smile, Then she gets out of the armchair she was seated in and walks towards me, pulling me out of my seat. “Unless we find a replacement.” It took me a few seconds to register what she had just said. A replacement bride. ME?? Horrified, I look towards her, “Excuse me? A replacement?” I ask, my voice a high pitched wobble then I look about the room. Sebastian regards me then looks away. My parents nod, and look towards one another, their minds made up. Spencer stares at me but I could see him putting the pieces together in his mind. Eliana and Robert both stared at me, dumbfounded. Mirabelle an elated ball of joy. “Yes, it’s perfect. We could tell the press that Sebastian and Elena were always together, and they got it confused because the girls are twins. IF everyone sticks to this story, we should be okay.” Spencer responds, a grin crosses his face as he stands up and walks towards his son. “This needs to be done, Sebastian.” “Very well.” Sebastian says and stomps out of the room, then we hear the front door open then slam shut. Was I just offered up as a pawn to appease families and social circles?
