Sophia's POV:

When Andrew joined our conversation, my eyes automatically turned around from where he came from and searched for his friend.

"He went outside." I glanced at him when he answered my silent question.

"I'm not asking for Daniel." I said in a defensive tone.

"Really? But your actions did. And don't worry I also wasn't referring to him." and he winked at me.

Jack is just standing in front of me waiting for my reaction, but I give none.

"I like your dress, Sophia. You looked more beautiful." Andrew said after a while.

"Thank you Andrew, you too."

"I also looked beautiful?" I rolled my eyes. "Just kidding."

We continued our conversation with Andrew leading the topic into music. And this captured my interest. Both Jack and I were just listening to his story and corny jokes. Jack also shared his love into music but the problem is, music doesn't love him back. Well, unlike Andrew who showed us some pictures of his musical instruments at home. But of course, I remained quiet and didn't tell them about my past job in college.

I also play different musical instruments, but the most I loved to use is my guitar. I was eleven years old when my Dad taught me how to play instruments. I dropped out in dancing school when I was ten years old, that's when my Mom left us, and I just focused on what Dad wanted me to do. And one day, he came home with guitar in his hands, and he taught me how to play and use it, and that's when I started playing them.

I really love dancing back then, but I don't have a choice but to stopped because I wanted Dad to be happy despite of my Mom's absence. I followed all the things that he wanted me to do, but somehow I called it blessing in disguise. Because I used it as my part time job back in college.

Andrew was in the middle of his story telling about his guitar when I heard the familiar voice of a woman behind me. And the name she used to call me.


I gulped as I slowly turned around to see Rian standing few steps away from me. I blinked my eyes repeatedly and my jaws dropped when I realized that it's really her.


Our eyes finally met and my mouth formed an 'A' then 'O' shape at the same time. It's really a surprised moment for me. We stepped closer each other and hugged the life out of us.

"What are you doing here?" we both asked in unison.

She bite her bottom lip and I didn't missed the look that she gave to Daniel who's frowning behind her.

"You know each other?" He asked the two of us.

"You know him?" I also asked her moving my eyes from her then to Daniel.

"Uhm.. he's actually my brother."

"Ohh..." I said in a really shocked state.

What a small world we are in? My fiance and future husband is the brother of one of my trusted friend since college. The person whom I shared all of my secrets and stories is none other than the younger sister of the person whom I will borrow a last name two weeks from now.

All of us turned into silent. No one dared to talk, until Daniel asked the two of us with a raised eyebrow.

"How did you two meet each other?"

With his question, Rian suddenly smiled and take my hand.

"We came from the same university. She's actually my mentor and she's the one who introduced me to my band." She answered him smiling.. no.. smirking.

"Mentor?" Daniel's eyebrows almost kissed each other.

"Yes, it's a long story, Dani. And don't ask me on how, why and what because I know you're not interested."

She's calling him 'Dani', but that's not what catched my attention. It's her words 'you're not interested' and somehow deep inside me, I really don't need to ask what she meant by that because I already know the answer.

I didn't missed how they shared a look and how Daniel glared his sister, but Rian the same old Rian just shrugged her shoulder and turned to the other man whose standing beside her brother.

"Hubby, she's our dance intructor and the one I'm telling you the last time."

She completely ignored his brother but didn't let go of my hand.

"Really?"  asked the man whom she called hubby. I also noticed the love and adoration on his both eyes when he looked at her.

"Yes. By the way, hubby this is Belle my most beautiful mentor in singing and now in dancing. And Belle, this is Alex my husband." She smiled as she introduced us to each other. Daniel is just watching behind her.

"Wow! You're so talented, Belle. Nice to finally meet you."

Alex offered his hand for a handshake and I gladly accepted it.

"Thank you. Nice to meet you too, Alex." I give him my appreciative smile.

"Belle, welcome to the family."

Rian said with a smile as she hugged me again. I know that smile, it's sincere but there's something hidden on it. Questions.

"Why are you calling her Belle?" Daniel asked as no one speaking to him in the group.

She rolled her eyes before she give him a smirk.

"Ohh.. my dear big brother. Tsk.Tsk.Tsk. I'm calling her Belle, because that's her original

re love and adoration in his eyes. I know in my case and my situation, I would never experience that things. But somehow I wish that after all of these struggles and problems I have right now, I can also find my own prince charming. The man who will hold me in his arms while looking at me like I'm the only woman that exists in his world. The man who will understand me and never judge me for who I am and for what happened to me in my past, but the man who will love me unconditionally and eternally.

I closed my eyes when I saw the two kissing in front of the people around them. I sighed and silently wished that whatever the consequence I have to face after this marriage, will give me freedom and peace from my not-so-good memories in the past. And a lone tear rolled down my face, but I'm not in the mood to wipe it out.

And because I was still in closed eyes, I didn't notice the stares that my fiance is giving me. He also walked in front of me and I was shocked when I opened my eyes, he wiped that lone tear. He took my hand and pulled me towards the center of the venue.

He give his glass to the waiter as we stand in front of the people who are now watching his moves. And without even saying a word, he dropped down on his knees and showed me the white diamond ring on his hand.

-'What the fuck?'- I asked silently still in shock with what he is doing right now.

"Sophia, I know what we have right now is an overwhelming story, but I don't want to let you go. Not now, not ever."

-'Gosh! What a good actor you are, Daniel Kelley!'-


-'Sweetheart? Where does it came from? Haha.. what if I kick your balls, sweetheart?'-

"Will you be the mother of my children in the future? Will you be my best partner in crime? And will you give the honor to be the happiest man alive by marrying me?"

I looked at him directly but his face showing the opposite of what I was thinking. He's smiling at me. But the back of my head instantly came to a response.

-'Idiota! Certo che sta solo recitando, questa è solo una finta festa di fidanzamento! ( Idiot! Of course he's just acting, this is just a fake engagement party!)

"Please say yes!" I heard the shouts of his parents, and I wanted to laugh when I saw the look on Daniel's face. I'm sure he's now silently killing me inside his mind.

"Yes, 'sweetheart' I will marry you." I emphasized the the endearment he used to me twice this afternoon.

He smirked.

-'See? He's just acting!'-

He slid the diamond ring on my finger and stand slowly. But what I didn't know, I will be surprised by the next thing he's planning to do.

He cupped both of my cheeks and a pair of lips which was owned by him, captured my 'virgin' lips. I felt the world swirled around me as the butterflies inside my stomach, started to dance with the loud beating of my heart.

I need to close my eyes and gripped his shoulder for support, as my knees buckled with this sudden feeling and sensation he's giving me through his kiss. I felt his hand around my waist and down to my lower back. He took my both of my hands and encircled it around his waist before he let go of my lips. He hugged me after that and whispered on my ear.

"I bet I was your first kiss, sweetheart."

-'Fucking shit!'- I muttered to myself and my eyes turned wide like saucers.
