Zac hugs me close and brings a mug of cocoa
to my lips.
“Sip it,” he urges. “Or you might get sick.
I won’t guarantee Mr. Smith will let us both live for running away
from prom night like that.”
I give him a weak smile, my eyes threatening
to shed tears again when I think of Zac confessing to me onstage by
singing that song. But I will myself to stay calm.
Oh God, what will the future hold for us?
We’re just teenage kids, fighting a destiny that’s structured in
stone. How will Gigi react when she knows? What will Clare do if
she finds out? And Dillon, what will his reaction be if he knew?
And then there are Zac’s parents and relatives. How would they
react knowing that he’s in love with the enemy that accused their
son of murdering her family?
The more I think about it, the more my body
tenses up and I grip the mug in my hand harder.
Dear God, how
could two young kids fight this big obstacle together? Please help
, I pray.
When Zac sees me like this, he pulls me to
sit in front of him. His big arms circle my small body, keeping me
warm, embracing me tighter so those negative thoughts fly away from
my mind. Then he nuzzles his face into the nape of my neck and
rests his head there.
“Didn’t I tell you things would work out?”
he whispers softly to calm me down. “I’ll protect you. I’ll look
after you. I’ve got it all planned. We’ll fight this obstacle
Zac takes the mug away from my hand and lays
it on the table. He takes my now free hand and presses his lips to
it. He kisses my hand softly and then laces our fingers together
until we’re holding hands.
He gives me a smile. “Look at our hands,
I look at both of our hands entwined
“I’ll hold your hands forever, Ivy. We’ll
fight this obstacle together.” And then Zac starts rocking his
body, cradling me within his arm, lulling me to sleep. “Sleep a
bit, Ivy. Rest a bit,” he whispers into my ears. “When tomorrow
comes, I’ll still hold on to your hand and we’ll fight this
Yes. We’ll fight this obstacle together. Zac
is holding my hand, grasping it tight, as if to tell me he won’t
ever let me go.
My lips turn up into a smile. Yes, Zac and
me, we will face the impending obstacle together, and when Clare or
Gigi, Zac’s parents or Dillon for that matter—when they find out
the truth, Zac and I, we will be together no matter what. We will
fight them together, because today, I have finally admitted I love
him. And when tomorrow comes, I will have Zac’s hand holding on to
me and we will fight our obstacles.
We will fight for our future together.

From the author Wanitta Praks
Hi. Thank you for buying Forbidden Love:
Fate, the first book to the Zac and Ivy Trilogy. I felt a very
emotional attachment to this couple. It brings tears to my eyes
when I think about them. They’re so young, yet they must face
obstacles that in due part, not even their fault, but by a force
beyond their control. Hence, that’s why their story is like that of
Romeo and Juliet.
As you may know, if you have read my comedic
series, Spinsters and Casanovas, especially featuring the
romantically comedic couple, Hunter and Clarice, you may have
noticed that I’ve changed my writing style in here. In Spinsters
and Casanovas I wrote in third person, whereas in here, I used
first personal narrative, alternating between the two main
protagonists, Zac and Ivy.
In a way, I felt that writing in this style
could relate more to you, as the readers, since I want you to feel
for my characters. To cry when they cry, to laugh when they laugh
and to feel their pain when they feel the pain.
Regarding the structure of the story, it’s
also slightly different. With Hunter and Clarice, it’s all about
creating funny laughable scenes, while with Zac and Ivy, it’s about
creating emotion. And I admit I cried when writing their
So now that we’ve come to the conclusion of
the first book, I hope you look forward to the next book in their
series, Forbidden Love: Secret.
See you in the next book.
