We got to the wedding early enough, we snuck in and sat at the back.

It was a big church decorated with white and yellow roses, it was beautiful and looked like paradise.

The groom was already at the altar, his tux fitted his 6, 2 height and just looking at him from the back I could tell he was good-looking, His best man was a dark guy who had the most beautiful smile I had ever come across in my life.

The church was full, white and peach dominated the other colours.

"We are just in time."

Grey whispered when the violinists started playing. I felt excited all of a sudden, the last time I attended a wedding was when I was six.

Everyone looked back when the doors opened, I admired the wedding dress first, it was gorgeous and went with the big crown on her head, her lace veil was long and her bridesmaids were trying not to step on her fishtail wedding dress.

She smiled as she took slow steps with an old man which I assumed was her dad.

My sister trailed behind, she looked beautiful in her peach dress and neat bun. I wished she could see me, I still felt awful about what happened this morning.

"Ciara is killing it in that dress, " Grey whispered with a whistle.

"Hey, she is my sister."

I glared at him.

"Sorry, I didn't mean anything...."

"Shhh" the lady behind us cut him off.

"Sorry, " I apologized to the lady but she pretended not to hear me.

We sat in silence for the remaining procession, the bride joined her groom at the altar.

He didn't even turn to look at her face, not even a glance.

"That's cold" I whispered to Grey.


"The groom didn't spare his bride a look."

"He is going to be seeing more of her."

"Have you noticed how still he is?"

I whispered softly starting at the groom who hadn't moved since his bride joined him.

"He is probably nervous, I will be too if it was me. He is tying his soul to one woman."

"Is anything wrong with that?"

I asked raising my eyebrows at him.

"No, of course not." He sealed his words with a smile.

I studied his expression for a while before returning my gaze to the altar.

The ceremony started and it was going smoothly. Grey and I would whisper to each other when we noticed anything.

Like the old man who almost hit his head on the seat while sleeping.

And the lady who kept touching her makeup and blowing kisses to her mirror, why was she even here?

It was time for the vow, Grey was already bored and kept himself busy with his phone.

Sofia was pretty, she was from a wealthy family and she was a half-time model. Her stylist did a good job with her hair, her makeup was a bit heavy, I could see the fake blush from here.

She said her vow with so much joy but the groom kept looking at her like she was boring him.

He looked like he wanted this to be over, was this an arranged marriage? I brushed my thoughts away and focused on the altar.

When it got to his turn he went silent, I nudged Grey and pointed at the altar.

"He is tongue-tied."

"Now this is getting interesting."

He said putting his phone away.

Sofia looked scared, she called his name but he looked void. The priest repeated the vow but he didn't answer.

Sofia gave the congregation a smile like she wanted to tell us everything was okay, no need to panic.

She looked back at him and spoke to him in a low tone but with clenched teeth.

A lady stood up and walked to the altar, I assumed it was his mother from the resemblance.

She whispered a few things to him and returned to her seat with shaky hands.

The priest repeated the vow but he was still mute that was when people began to murmur.

"Should I record this? It's going to hit a million views on YouTube."

"Don't even think about it, she is Ciara's best friend, " I warned him.

Sofia was trying to get him to say something, but he gave her an impassive look.

"I'm sorry, Sofia, I can't do this, "

He said out loud making everyone go quiet.

"What are you talking about?"

"I don't wanna hurt you, we ca

n't carry on with the wedding."

Everyone gasped, I didn't though but Grey was laughing.

"You find this funny?"

"Yes, it's like a comedy show. I should have brought some popcorn."

I shook my head and looked at the couple.

"Why?" She asked already crying.

"Why?!!! What did I do Tristan?"

She screamed.

"Do you think this is all part of the wedding? It could be an act."

"Naa, I don't think so. The bridesmaids look shocked and the dude looks darn serious."

Grey pointed out.

"You didn't do anything, I'm sorry I just can't."

He stepped back removing the ring, the congregation started murmuring again, this time louder.

"Tristan, what are you doing?!"

His mother shouted standing up, she was a beauty. The girl beside her that looked sixteen tried to calm her, blonde hair must really run in the family.

"I'm in love with someone else and we have been seeing each other for six months now."

Another gasp from the congregation.

Sofia crumpled on the marble floor, Ciara tried to help her up but she won't let her.

"While you were dating my daughter?"

Sofia's mom stood up with tears in her eyes, she looked so fragile. Her husband held her back when she wanted to go to the altar.

I wish he'd let her go so she could slap the devil out of him for ruining her daughter's life, what a jerk.

"I'm sorry but I can't leave her not when she is carrying my baby."

The church was in an uproar.

Sofia was crying her eyes out that it smudged her mascara and eyeliner. She reminded me of a horror movie, I felt so sorry for her.

"Wow, " I mumbled staring at the arsehole who still looked relaxed like he didn't just cause havoc in front of God, at least he was confessing right?

"Who is she? Is she prettier than me? What does she have that I don't?!!!"

Sofia screamed hitting his feet with the bouquet of flowers in her hand, poor flowers.

"She is everything I ever wanted, she is here."

He smiled immediately he finished his sentence, he must really love her.

There was a sudden silence in the building, Sofia stopped and looked at the whole congregation.

Everyone started looking around even me, I was curious too. I mean how could his lover attend the wedding, did they plan this?

"I'm so glad you invited me to this wedding, " Grey said amused.

"Ciara must be going through a lot."

I mumbled looking at my sister, she looked confused and shocked as she stared at her best friend.

"Stand up you slut! Show your ugly and shameless face!!!"

"How dare you show up at my wedding?!!!"

To be honest, Sofia looked crazy, I knew she was somewhat spoilt and she hated people who were more beautiful than her, I was still wondering why she was with my sister, you get what I mean?

"Where is she?!" she screamed at his face.

Tristan looked at the congregation and everyone followed the movement of his eyes, I did too.

He left the altar and took steady steps down the aisle. The silence in the church made his footsteps loud.

"She is really here."

Grey said close to my ear almost freaking me out.

He kept walking to the back and I was starting to think he wanted to run out of the church.

Our eyes met and he didn't look away, I looked away quickly before people would think I was the one.

"He is coming here and he is looking at you."

Grey whispered and I looked at Tristan, he smiled at me as he got closer to where we were sitting.

"What is he doing?"

I turned to Grey but he was giving me a weird look.

I hope he wasn't suspecting, how was that even possible, I didn't know him and I was very much a virgin.

I looked behind to check for any young person but only saw three old women who were also staring at me but with disgust.

I looked back at Tristan and he was standing next to me with a charming smile I wanted to scratch off his beautiful face.

It couldn't possibly be me, I was just seeing him for the first time.

"Hi, my love, " He said with his hand outstretched for me to take.

"What the hell?"
