A wedding is a day when two life becomes one. It is the most important day in one’s life. It is indeed important to me as from today onwards I’m no more Veronica Finlet but Mrs. Veronica Nicholas Covet. Our life is going to meddle together and nervousness has become the only feeling I’m feeling right now.
If only my mom was here, she would have done everything to calm my nerves. She would have been so happy to see me in my wedding gown with tears shining back in her eyes. Looking at my reflection in the mirror trying my best not to tear up and ruin the make-up. I miss you, mom... I wish you were here with us.
Dressed in a white floor-length gown fitted strapless bodice covered with beads of diamonds here and there, slowly flows down like a waterfall, I’m about to walk down the aisle holding dad’s arm.
“You look lovely, dear. Your mom would have been so proud of you,” dad whispered before the door to my future opened. I took a deep breath before I took my single step towards my future.
Dressed in a black tuxedo, I am waiting for my soon to be the bride. As the door to the aisle opened and every head was turned towards the bride. Everything seemed to stop for a while. She was looking breathtakingly beautiful in her dress. The way it hugged her curvaceous body I could not take my eyes off … wow, where the hell did that all come from? I am in love with Teresa. I can’t imagine all those things about her.
As she came nearer to me I raised my hand for her to hold it. She grabbed my hand and I helped her ascend the steps. The priest started to speak but as I gaze into her eyes, the world around me started to disappear. Those pretty brown eyes were staring back at me as if asking me what you are looking at.
“Nicholas, Do you take Veronica to be your lawfully wedded wife, your partner in life, and your one true love? Will you cherish her friendship and love her today, tomorrow, and forever till death do you apart?”
“Veronica, Do you take Nicholas to be your lawfully wedded husband, your partner in life, and your one true love? Will you cherish his friendship and love him today, tomorrow, and forever till death do you apart?”
“By the power vested upon me by God, I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride.”
As the priest completed I leaned forward and pecked her lips.
The wedding ceremony is really tiresome. Especially the reception party. My cheeks have started to pain by smiling to every passerby who won’t stop congratulating us.
We have finally reached my penthouse apartment. I fell upon the bed sighing contently once I reached my room.
Sound of clearing throat made me aware of her presence in my room.
“So, where am I going to sleep? Which is my room?” she asked.
She raised her left eyebrow at me to continue.
“I converted another room as my office so we need to share the room together,” I explained.
“What! I’m not going to share the room with you. Besides, you did say about not to worry about this matter. And, you will take care of it all.” She retorted crossing her hands.
“Well, sorry to pop your bubble princess but there is nothing that can be done.” I did say that but with each passing day as the wedding date got closer, Teresa started to feel more insecure. So I had to spend most of my time with her in her apartment. I know I sound like a jerk but still…I had my priorities.
She seemed to be a bit stressed out and easing out her frown thinking about what I said. She remained quiet for a while. “Okay… but where are you going to sleep then?” she said looking around the room.
“What do you mean where am I going to sleep? Of course, I’ll sleep on my bed. The bed is large enough for two of us unless you want to sleep on the couch then that’s perfectly fine with me.”
Her face was red with anger. “I’m not going to sleep with you.”
“So couch it is then. Goodnight and please turn off the lights before you sleep, okay?” I flashed her smile and went to the bathroom to get ready for bed.
“Arrgh… the nerve of him,” I took the extra sheets and went to the couch to sleep after changing into some comfortable clothes. It’s going to be a hell of a ride for a year, so god helps me pass it quickly.
