We were surrounded immediately by the paparazzi as soon as they spotted Alex exited from the car. But thank you to his reliable body guards and they covered him instantly. He take my hand and help me stand steady on my own feet.

The flashes of cameras coming from everywhere almost blinded me, if not for Alex's body that serves as my eye shield. This is one of the reason why I don't want to get involved with our family business or with Alex business. I don't want these people to recognize me and follow me everywhere.. asking even some nonsense questions.

"Are you okay?" he asked me as he put his hand on my lower back.

"Yeah, I'm just not used to this, you know." I shrugged and then smiled after.

"I know, baby. But you have to, you know that." I nodded.

"Mr. Alexander Smith, may we know who is this gorgeous lady with you, Sir?" they started to ask their questions.

He looked at me, and I know he's asking permission if he's going to say it now in public. I smiled and nodded. I'm ready. Because with him by my side, I'm ready to face everyone of them in the future, and I'm ready to be Mrs. Smith in public.

"She's my wife." and then he smiled and pulled me closer to him.

"Wife? But we never heard you announcing your wedding?"

"When did you get married and where?"

"What's your wife's name, Sir? Is she now pregnant that's why you decided to get married?"

I gulped hearing someone asked that question about pregnancy, but then I still smiled at them as they continue they interview.

"Her name is Arrianna Angela Kelley-Smith, and we've been married for four years. We just kept it in private."

"Kelley? Does that mean, she's one of the reason why the Kelley Enterprises and Smith Corporation merged four years ago?"

"So, that only means you two got married for the merging of both companies?"

"Yes and No." he answered still smiling and confident. "Yes, our company merged four years ago, but no.. we got married not because of anything, but  because we loved each other and our companies were not involved in our relationship. It just happened at the same year, the merging of the two companies and our wedding. Thank you." he said and then we both continue to walk inside the venue.

We still heard some questions like...'if you said you're married four years ago, then why you still don't have kids?' ... 'why didn't you announced it in public?'. But we just let the guards blocked them from following us.

"Whew!" I sighed loudly when we stepped inside.

"Are you okay?" he cupped my cheeks and I nodded. "Baby, I am telling you right now, that was just a small part of my world."

"I know. It's my family's world also. And I think I don't have a choice but to get back again in that world."

He smiled and kissed me on my forehead. "I love you." then he gave me a peck on my lips.

"I love you too." i said smiling like an idiot.

Walking further inside the venue, we meet some business man who knows my husband and of course I also don't have a choice but to stay on his side as he introduced me to them. It's like as if he's the one who's working here and not me. My eyes were searching for my two friends.. Gavin and Jenny. And when I found them, I secretly nudged Alex's arm. He said his goodbye to the four men and I pulled him to where my friends were seated.

"God hubby, is this your party?" I teased him and he scratched the back of his neck.

"I'm sorry, baby. I just don't know how to avoid them.   It's just rude on my part not to acknowledge them."

"I'm just kidding." I smiled and touched his face.

When Gavin saw me coming.. he immediately stand and nudged Jenny to look at me. They both smiled and we hugged each other as Gavin offered a handshake with Alex.

"You're stunning tonight, Mrs.

Smith." Jenny said while looking at me up and down.

"Ohh.. thank you, but you look more beautiful and ravishing in your sexy red gown!" i winked at her. And we both laughed after that.

"Hey, you two! Stop praising each other!" Gavin said interrupting our girly moments.

"Oh Gavin, don't worry you also look...." his eyes glared at me and I chuckled a bit. "... handsome. You look so handsome in that three piece suit of yours." I bite my bottom lip just to suppress my laugh.

Alex who's just watching us, also have the same expression as mine.

"Yeah.. thank you...Ms. 'P'." and it's my turn to glared at him.

-'I'll kill you tonight, Gavin Montero!'-

"What is 'P'?" I hitched my breath when Jenny asked him.

"Ohh.. 'P'? That's what we called Rian, during our practice, because she always likes to 'pre'." he smirked at me when he emphasized the word 'pee'.

"Oh, I see." Thank you because she easily accepted his explanation, if not.. this gay standing in front of me would be headless after this party. "By the way, how's your practice?"

"Well, we did it perfectly so, I am confident to win that prize and trophy." he answered proudly.

"What about your costumes?" Alex asked behind me.

"Ohh.. don't worry about it Mr. Smith, it's all ready in the back stage."

I swear if Jenny wasn't here, I already chopped his balls. He's flirting with my husband!

"Okay then, good luck to the both of you."

"Gosh! This is it, honey." Gavin said for the fifth times since we go the backstage and prepared for our numbers.

"Gavin, could you please relax? My God, I thought your exited to this contest.. what happened?"

"I am, but you can't take those slight nervousness in me." I chuckled when he jumped repeatedly.

"What are you doing?"

"I'm shaking this slight nervousness out of my body."

I raised my eyebrow before laughing again. "What did you say? Slight? Is that what you called 'slight nervousnes'?"

"Oh God, Rian. Stop teasing me! Aren't you feel nervous?"

"Nervous? What would I feel nervous.. it's just a dance. And in case you forgot.. I'm used in performing on stage."

"Oh yeah."

And after a few minutes, we heard our names being called by the MC and Gavin's eyes widened suddenly.

"Relax. We're going to take home the prize, okay?"

He sighed before he nodded.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

"Ahhh! Congratulations!" Jenny squealed in excitement when the President and CEO of the company.. Gavin's father, called our names for the winner.

"Oh my God, honey! We made it!" Gavin also squealed and gave me a high five. He's also going to hug me but Alex pulled me to him.

"Try that or else...." Alex raised his eyebrow on him.

"Alex?" I looked at him questioning his action.

"Baby, he's still a man." he whispered in my ear. I just sighed and rolled my eyes.

"Let's go Gavin." I hold Gavin's hand and we walked towards the stage.

Actually, before our dance number, I'm doubting if we're really going to win this. Because Belle removed all our aerial steps when she found out that I am possibly pregnant. But here we are... proudly smiling and going to receive the fruit of our hard work.

We received the prize and the trophy together with the cheers and round of applause from the people gathered in the venue. I also feel the proudness from my husbands eyes while he's also clapping his hands together with crowd.

"Congratulations, baby." he said when I walked back to our table. He pulled me into a hug and kissed me in front of all the employees and guests of the company.

"Thank you." I smiled and wiped his lips with my thumb. And I received another clapped from the people around us.

"I love you, baby."

"I love you too.
