Wedding for Revenge
Alinda Walker goes with her mother Alice Walker and brother Toby Walker for the wedding of her mother's friend's son on her eighteenth birthday. At the wedding, the bride runs away leaving the groom alone at the altar. Alinda's mother wanted her to replace the bride and get married to Haydon Taylor.
“Mamma, what you are asking me to do is nothing less than suicide. Just go and try to convince Catherine that it’s common to break a relationship. She should be thankful to God that the girl left her son before the marriage itself. You should see the positive side.

“Oh, so his name is Hayden. Thanks, mamma, now I at least know his name. Mamma, why are you ignoring the age gap between that Hayden Taylor and me? He is thirty and I just came of age.
