Chapter : " The Normal Life"
Sadie awoke early in the morning and started to prepare breakfast, she wanted all to be ready by
the time Dante came back from his morning run. It was important for her to make sure that
everything looked amazing. After all she was now a happily married woman, who just had her
mind set on making her new hubby happy and try and live “ The normal life”.
After all it had been a rough four months for her and not only had she decided to take a year off
from Law School. Sadie had also eloped with Dante and did not even allow her parents to plan
her a proper wedding.
Unfortuntely, for Sadie this was the last straw for both her parents. Her mother Lila felt like
Sadie had slapped her in the face with a cup of humiliation. After all, she was part of an elite
group called “The women of Atlanta”, and to have everyone know that her only daughter had
decided to elope just did not sit well with her. “ My own daughter, embarrassing us, how
dare you"! said a very distraught Lila Reece Martin. “ Have you gone mad, yelled her father, “
what is going on in that head of yours"! Those words were still lingering at her so strong.
After all Jackson Martin had been known to be a baracuda in the court room and he had
established himself as one of the very best Criminal lawayer’s in the state of Atlanta, and
other’s perceived him as a very harsh man. For that reason it was a deep regret that his only
daughter hurt him in that manner. Sadie was the only one who brought out his very soft side.
As Sadie tried to place all the silver ware on the table, tears began to roll down her face. As she
began to think to herself, “ Oh Daddy, I did not mean to hurt you, but I love Dante and he loves
me”. “ I wish you would of been happy for us”, she stated to herself.
