The Arranged Marriage

Genre: Speculative Fiction

Zenarra thought the commute was worth it to have the beautiful natural landscape that surrounded her when she got home. She smiled to herself and sighed. She never thought she could be so happy.

She sensed his presence before she saw the headlights.  ” How did you find me, Jolar?” she said dejectedly,  ” Minat swore she would never betray me.”

” Those of royal blood have a sensor implanted at birth so that they can never be taken for ransom. You will fulfill your duty and marry Tomar with the next moon rising.”

    Nice work here, although the sci fi fiction jumped in there at the end from nowhere. I was expecting a story of betrayal (from friend Minat perhaps)… I suppose the hidden chip is a betrayal of sorts in any case 🙂
    Well done.

    And this was a great creative take on FridayFictonairees, plus I do know some girls that actually live in that part of the world where arrange marriages is the norm and for me is more like being a slave. Great writing, and you did touch on an important subject out of that photo.

      Thank You. Yes I realize that there is still a lot of arranged marriages in our world. It used to be the norm all over. I hope things will change soon and it will be a happy ending for more people. Thanks for your comment.
