Today's the day. The day I sign my life away to a man who isn't the first love in my life. I know what you are thinking, 'Why go through with it if you don't love him?' That's the thing, I love him, and he is what's best for me. He is what I need.
I stood in front of the mirror as my mom and my bridesmaids fix the dress around me. My mother, who still looked young and beautiful for being nearly 57, had small pools of tears surrounding her eyes as she looked at me. I was getting married. Her last baby was finally getting married. This was every girls dream, the dress, the guy, and the destination. I looked like a princess, but sadly I felt like it was a facade.
"Nicky, you look so beautiful," My mother said as she touched the dress gently.
"Thanks mom," I said hugging her. My mother turned to Nova, Kim and my other bridesmaids.
"Do you mind giving me and Nicole a minute," She asked. They all nodded and left the room. She turned back to me and sat down on the couch and patted the spot next to her. I went and sat next to her. "Nicole, I know I haven't been the best mother…" She started.
"Mom…" I said, but she held a hand up for me to wait until she was finished.
"I know I worked a lot, after your father died, but it was all for you to grow up well, and have more opportunities then what I had. Now, that I see you in your wedding dress, I can't help but smile. I am j-just," She had started to cry," so proud of you. My little girl is all grown up and marrying the man of her dreams," She said a smile on her face and eyes filled with tears. I felt tears leaking from my eyes. Not just because of what my mom said but because this wasn't the man of my dreams. I lost him weeks ago.
I looked at the calendar with a scowl. Today was the day of my ex best friend's wedding, the girl I love's wedding. I can't just stand here. Even if I did go what would I say? What would I do? What would Nicole say? What would she say? The list of questions went on and on, until my phone rang.
"Hello?" I asked answering.
"Dude where are you? You have a photo shot in fifteen minutes," My manager asked.
"I'll be there. See you in 10," I said hanging up. Crap, I forgot all about that. I rushed down to my street bike. I grabbed my helmet putting it on, and rushed down town.
By the time I got there, I had 3 minutes to change and everything else. Luckily it didn't take long. We started without a hitch for my album cover and other promotional stuff. As I stood there smiling, and posing like the pretty boy they want me to be, I asked myself 'what am I doing? Who cares what she'll say or what Carter will do to my face? I have to try, right?' So what do I do, I stop mid photo shoot on a whim. "I'm sorry guys I have to go," I said and made a run for it. I sprinted out to my bike. I barely got my helmet on as I started my bike. I had to stop that wedding. Carter wasn't right for her. He would only ever hurt her, and Nicole deserves nothing but love, and carter was not going to do that. I caught him and Kim having sex for goodness sakes. I was speeding as I exited the city and out towards Carter's lavish country house.
I got there just as I wedding march began. I stopped my bike and ran. I ran like the devil was at my heels. I entered the back of the ceremony. I took a seat just as everyone was sitting down.
"Dearly beloved we are gathered here today to witness the union of Carter Daniel Dervish and Nicole Alexis Masters…" The preacher man started. I didn't care about this part because this wasn't right. Why Nicole would even say yes to such a troll, was beyond me. I was mad and I was gritting my teeth at this point. Then finally the words I had been waiting for fell out of the preacher man's voice," if anyone has any objections to why these two should not be wed please speak now or forever hold your peace?" I can't believe I'm doing this.
I raised my hand and I could have sworn the preacher's as grew five sizes. "I… I Object," I said standing up. Nicole turned to look. My God was she beautiful. If angels could inhabit earth she would be one.
"Chris, what are you doing here?" She asked her eyes popping out. Everyone was looking at me, but I couldn't peel my eyes off of Nicole.
"Hey, I know I'm not dressed for the occasion. Everyone looks great but I can't let my best friend marry a man who will only hurt her," Everyone was so confused," I can't let the woman I love marry someone else," By this time I was walking towards here. I caught a glimpse of Ms. M who had the kindest smile. She seemed to understand, but she would support Nicole no matter what she did. Carter on the other hand looked mad.
"How would I hurt her, at least I never made her a hump and dump," carter said harshly.
"carter, I didn't come here to fight but Nicole understands why I left that I didn't want our friendship to worsen and know I see what I did that I ruined my own chances all I have to say is I'm sorry," I said," But I can't let you marry a man who has slept with nearly every one of your bridesmaids excluding Nova who actually kicked his ass." Nova smiled. "But mostly Kim, cause Kim is a whore. "
Nicole looked appalled as she looked at Carter and then here bridesmaids who all had the guiltiest looks on their faces, not Kim she had a triumphant look on her face, bitch.
"What proof do you have?" Carter asked.
"You do know there's a camera in Kimy's head board right?" I asked. He looked appalled as he looked at her. Nicole looked on the verge of tears. "Nicole, I am sorry for everything, and I did it all to make sure you wouldn't get stuck with a failing musician who lived off his parents," I said.
"Chris…. I-I can't do this," She said looking around. She ran back down the aisle into the house. Everyone looked shocked and appalled as Nova and Ms. M went after Nicole. I started but was stopped by a hand on my shoulder. I was pulled back and was met with a fist to the jaw. I looked at Carter I saw nothing but red as I began to kick his ass. The sad part is no one stopped me from kicking his pampered ass. His dad offered to help, actually. I shook my head no and left him beaten and bruised as I went to find Nicole, Nova and Ms. M.
That motherfucker had to make me cry, and bring my world to its knees. I love him so much, but he can be an ass sometimes.
My mom and Nova tried to comfort me as I sobbed. I wasn't sure if I was happy or not. I heard a knock on the door. The sight we were met with was Chris dirty, hair messed up, lip cracked and his jaw with a bruise starting to bruise.
"Can I come in?" He asked.
"As soon as you promise me you kicked the asshole that broke my baby girl's heart," My mom said.
"There is no doubt in that Ms. M," Chris said chuckling.
"Mom," I groaned.
"Yes dear?" She asked.
"Ask Chris if he broke any ribs, his answer may decide on me forgiving him," I said leaning against my mother. My mom must have given him a look that asked the question.
"Yes I he may have at least broken one and a few cracked ones, cause no one hearts my princess," Chris said. I smiled at that.
"Mom, Nova can you give us a minute?" I asked. They nodded and left the room.
"Nicky…" He started as he came to sit next to me. "I am so-," he started to apologize so I held a finger to his cracked lip.
"Chris, shut up," I said before wrapping my arms around his neck and pressing my lips to his. I was greeted by his arms around my waist and his lips moving in sync with mine. Music seemed to fill the air around me and in my head as we kissed. We pulled back after a while and took a deep breathe.
"So want to go get Ice cream?" Chris asked. I smiled and I laughed nodding.
"Ya," I said. We stood up holding hands as we walked to his bike where I so gracefully got on in my Cinderella wedding dress, and he laughed as he sat in front of me. Like that we rode off towards our future.
