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."
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.
