A Marriage of Convenience

by Adrienne Ferguson
Originally published by on 30/01/2018

The coach and horses made their way along the Champs-Élysées. Marie was the only passenger. Her thoughts were far away, remembering a time when she had enjoyed making this journey with her father at her side.

In three days’ time, she was to marry. Not a marriage of love but of convenience. Convenient for her father because he needed the other family’s money, and convenient for her fiancé because he wanted a trophy bride.

Tonight, she intended to make sure there would be no wedding. She clutched the knife in her purse and hoped her courage would not fail her.
