In her room at the dorm. Her roommate was gone for the weekend, her beloved Damian, giving her as much time as he could.
“Kat,” Dami had said, sitting on her bed, “Simone is going to pay my way, wants me to marry her.”
Katherine Townsend had expected it. Simone had been paying Damian’s bills for the past four years, enabling him to do well at University. Now completing his degree, having applied and been accepted at Medical School he would need Simone more than before.
University degrees were expensive, and none so much as medicine.
Kat could remember the resigned look on Damian’s face as he explained;
“She wanted us to marry during Spring Break but I diverted her to the summer… I need to study, I need the grades… blah blah.”
Kat had nodded, because she understood. She knew Dami didn’t love, couldn’t love any bit of ugly Simone but her money, and was going to have to marry her for it.
