The gown fit me perfectly. It skimmed over my curves and I felt incredibly beautiful. “Thank you for agreeing to be my bridesmaid..” Mariah trailed off. I rushed to her side and hugged her from the back. “It’s nothing Mariah.. you look so beautiful..” I felt a pang of jealousy bite me. She’s perfect and looks younger than her years.
She’s 35 years old and her marriage to my dad is going to be her first. I can’t for the life of me understand how someone as beautiful,
intelligent and Sekxy as her having issues with men all her life. The fact remains that I’m happy for her and she deserves every happiness she can get.
She held my hands and I saw tears well in her eyes.. ”when Lanre told me he had a grown up daughter, my heart filled with trepidation.. but you are the most perfect sister I can wish for..” my heart clenched at her nice words and I shushed her.. ”we’ve got the rest of our lives to reminisce and cry! Today is your wedding and I don’t want you to smudge your make up”. She smiles at me and I rubbed her back again.
We finished dressing and the make up artist completed her work. Mariah stood up and she looked simply glorious. Her gown is pink and silver. The silky material wrapped her curves and it was lacy. The gown train looked like a stacked flower.. it matched the flower details on the gown.
The photographer took great photos and all in all, it was nice. My phone rang and my heart skipped a beat. Sope was calling.. “I won’t be able to make the wedding today dear.. I’m so sorry.. work came up and…” I stopped listening to him and my heart fell.
I’d made sure to lose a bit of weight to fit into my desired bridesmaid gown.. so as to look close to perfect for sope. I made sure to look very beautiful, so he could appreciate me and see me in another dimension.. now everything is wasted!
Now, I felt tears well up my eyes.. Mariah noticed.
I told her what dope did and she pacified me..
I felt a bit better, but my spirit is down..
I reluctantly left the room.. I made the mistake of calling my moms phone.
Ì tilted my tie to the left a bit, and it was perfect. I looked in the mirror and saw a very powerful man. A grown butt0ckz man who was about to get married. I had a flash back to how I looked in my I’ll fitted suit; all gangly and young, when I was about to marry titiloye.
Now., I look like the exact opposite? of that. I look like I can handle life as anything it threw at me.
I was grateful for tiwa though, she’s the only one who made all this easy. She appreciated and accepted Mariah without qualms.
My heart sq££zed at the thought of my wife to be… She’s my Yang!
