either you get up from that chair right now or i will have you dragged out” I said to uncle mike and the smile on his face faded immediately. He only looked at me with a straight face. His facial expression was blank and this made me doubt if i had created enough fear in him or not. I did’nt want to cause a scene on my own engagement but i wouldn’t mind causing one by dragging uncle mike out of the hall on my heels.
At that particular moment the MC was doing her thing on stage and i was not needed on stage but i knew i would be call upon soon. I bent alittle closer to uncle mike with a fake smile and said “Am sure the least you want right now is to be embarrassed infront of all this camera. Remember what i did to your wife? That part of me is still so much alive. Now move it your ass uncle”
My last statement created enough fear in my uncle and he reluctantly stood up from the chair. He looked at me directly for like a minute and with my two inches heels, i was way taller than him. I looked down at him and told him to make himself feel comfortable in the crowd.
Mi mom who had been carried away by the MC performance noticed the exist of uncle mike. She gave me a questionary expression and i replied with a smile, telling her to calm her nerves. I knew it was the family’s arrangement for uncle mike to sit with Mi mom, but i did’nt give a poo about their arrangement. It was my day, everything was suppose to be about me and everything was suppose to go just the way i wanted.
The MC called on the groom’s men to prostrate before the bride’s parent. This was the time everybody noticed the bride’s father absence. Before it got suspicious, i walked graciously to where Mi dad was seatted and ushered him to the seat vacated by uncle Mike. He was not prepared for it but he accepted and acted normal. Uncle mike and the family could rot in hell for all i care.
Bridal rites were paid, prayers were said, i sat on kelvin’s parent laps for prayer and vice versa, everything was super fun.
At exactly 6:00pm, the engagement came to a lovely end. Pictures were taken and many memories were captured. I could not help but notice the frown on my mom’s family throughout the event but i cared less.
I looked everywhere for Lizzy but she was no where to be found. I gussed i really bleeped up when i delt with her mom and she might probably be willing to take the grudges to her grave.
I returned home with my family and i was happy to be traditionally kelvin’s braid. He was my everything.
My foster parent invited me to their room after i undressed. At first Mi dad was mad at me for going against the family but at the end, after expressing my feelings to them, they were both proud of me and mi dad agreed to give out my hand in the holy matrimony.
I went back to my room and with the girls with me, the night was fun. Loud music, noise from every angle, laughter, delicious aroma and get together were all that filled my house because of the huge number of guest.
I excused myself from the girls and looked through my window. The moon was shinning so bright and a broad smile spread across my face when i thought of where i would be at the same time, the next day.
It was a beautiful Saturday and it was the day i had always anticipated MY WEDDING DAY.
I could not really sleep throughout the night because all my thought was based on my wedding. I thought about how everything would go down well and i found myself going on my kneels in the middle of the night. The night seemed unnecessarily longer and this made me eagerly open my eyes and watch the night as it slowly passed away.I slept around 4:00Am and woke up at 6
The noise from the ladies in my room woke me up. Khole jumped on me and gave me a peck. I could see the excitement on her face. I was practically dragged out of the bed by the ladies and the day started with us taking ‘makeup free’ selfies.
After the whole thing with the girls, i rushed to my foster parent’s room. Mi mom was up ready and so was mi dad. I went on my kneels and they showered me with prayers. The couple prayed whole heartedly and this got me emotional. I could not hold back my tears when Mi mom said “how i wish my brother is here. He was always proud of you baby”.
“common mom, don’t make her cry” khole said from the door and took me into her arms. I got myself together and hugged my family before going back to my room.
Me and my ladies dressed up and the whole ladies section was been filmed for rememberance.
It was fun to have my makeup done while the girls made nasty comments and we all laughed happily.
With my gorgeous wedding gown, My bridal shoe, My stunning jewelry and my pretty self, i was ready to head to the registry for my prince charming.
I was about to exist my room when kelvin called.
“Hey Wifey” he shouted. I only laughed into the phone. “Thanks for agreeing to marry a punk like me baby. I promise to build the world around you and only you honey” Kelvin said and i told him we would see about that. I was about to ask of kelvin’s look when khole snatched the phone from my hand and said
“Wait till you put the ring on her finger dude!” i could hear kelvin’s loud laughter before he finally dropped the call.
I left for the registry with my family and my beautiful bridal train at exactly 8:00Am. The order of the cars was a sight to behold, anytime, anyday and anywhere.
Though there were restrictions, the registry was filled with mass media agents. I felt so proud of myself when i saw kelvin and the men in suit. Everybody looked breathe taking.
The legal marriage was done and i became kelvin’s legal wife. Next up was the church.
The security cars were in front, followed with the president’s roll royce, then kelvin’s Range rover, followed by the men in suit G wagon and finally the army .
After the groom’s family departure, i also made a grand departure with my family.
I was in a white Limousine with my bridal train, my foster parent followed in a brand new chervrolet camaro 2015 and fleets of cars followed behind.
