Contractual Obligations

Description

Of old money and the newly rich...

Pretty, polished and from a long line of inherited wealth, her pedigree immaculate to boot. Engaged to the Oh Sehun, her life is practically perfect. 

Until it's not. 

With her family's company on the brink of bankruptcy, Hwang Hyesang is offered an ultimatum. A contract, if you like. 

"The Kim corporation will pay all our debts."

"What do I have to do?"

"Marry her son. The second one."

"We need the money. He needs the connections. Think of it as a mutually beneficial transaction." 

But be careful, because terms and conditions always apply. 

And old scores have to be settled. 

// 

"Why are there so many cameras?"

"Get used to it. We're famous."

// 

"Oh, I forgot. You're penniless now, aren't you?"

"Consider this charity." 

//

"Why are you doing this to me?!"

"Don't forget what you did to me first.

Foreword

The concept of this fic was inspired by me reading too much of The Great Gatsby and dreams on a sleepless night. 

I'll be dumping a ton of song references in here, so please do bear with me (and my music taste)! The mood of the chapter will match the songs too, so do give them a listen if you're keen. 

Now, for readers of my previous stories, this one will have way less fluff and be a lot darker. It's something totally different from (but hopefully just as interesting as) Rhythm after Summer and Fairytale Ending. The writing will be more stylistic and modern as well - I want to challenge myself. The closest fic to this in terms of style and level of angst from my previous works would probably be Love Me Right, I guess, for those of you who want a reference. 

Remember to leave me comments on your thoughts on it! Constructive criticism is welcome ~

As always, hope you enjoy.

Chapter 34: Damn, so before I write this entire long paragraph to say why this is one of the best Suho fics I have ever read let me tell you that this is such a gem. I always liked the idea of new vs old money and this was such a great spin on the classic arranged marriage au. I love the fact that the oc was the one who was rich and joonmyeon was new money. I loved the fact that both characters had shortcomings. And the angst was angsty (lol) wonderful. It was not too crazy but not too fluffy. And i loved this sooo much!!!!

Chapter 35: Omg!!! The sequel sounds so good. But just one thing. I dont like the fact that ninis face is disfigured. Please make it something like he has some sort of a trauma and he cant speak to people without stuttering or something. Please dont make his face weird. His face is too precious. I am probably being irritating and childish but i cant help it. I dont like it. But I guess you did if for a reason important to the plot. I guess ill try to bear it.
