Claire got to office quite late as usual, and received smiles from

everyone. She wondered why, but eventually forgot about it.

She walked over to her cubicle, placed her bag on a small stool

beside her table. And started the day's work.

"Congrats Claire!" Kath greeted with a frown. Kath was Claire's best

friend. They met for the first time at college. At that time, Kath was

a freshman and always preferred to stay alone. Claire was the first

classmate to talk to Kath which made them become friends. They never

parted ways and they finally got to work in the same office.

"Congrats for what?" Claire questioned.

"I have been your best friend since a long time and you never told me

anything about you getting married." Kath screamed and placed a

newspaper on the table.

"Married.... me..... how... when?" She took the newspaper, and

checked it. She saw her image with a man she had never met in her

life, Jeffery Tyler.

Ring! Ring! Ring!

Claire answered the call. It was her boss, Mr Redfell.

"He...llo Sir."

"Hello new bride! I just received the letter of invitation for your

wedding. Am I glad to be the chairman of the occasion!"

"But sir..." Claire mumbled.

"Oh! Have you checked your messages, I have sent you some money to

support the wedding preparations." Mr Redfell stated proudly.

"I... am not... Thank you sir!"

"Alright, I've got to go. Make sure you complete your work before

leaving today!" Mr Redfell said and hung up.

"I am not getting married to anyone!" She whispered.

Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep! A message popped in. She picked up her phone

that had been on the table and

peeked at the sender. It was nameless. She clicked on the message and

it read thus:

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WEDDING THAT IS COMING UP SOON WITH MR JEFFERY

TYLER! YOU DON'T KNOW HIM RIGHT? IF YOU TELL ANYONE THAT YOU AREN'T

GETTING MARRIED, THEN PREPARE FOR YOUR GRAVE!

HAPPY MARRIAGE.
