“Is 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 engager 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 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 engager 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 engager 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 sitted and ushered him to the sit 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 lovly 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 the duo, 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 has it slowly passed away.I slept around 4:00Am and woke up six.
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 and doing already 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.
Nothing felt more precious than walking into the house of the lord, with your white pretty gown and father holding your hand. It was a day i would never forget.
All eyes were on me and i felt like an angel among mortals.
Mi dad was called upon to give my hand in marriage to kelvin and it was time to exchange vows.
Vows were made and it got funny when kelvin could not wait for the instruction to kiss me before he tried to. My groom to be tried to kiss me thrice and the reverend kept pushing him back, before he was finally allowed to do so.
I saw nothing but love in his eyes, even his lips tasted it. Everything went beautifully well without the family reacting to me making Mi dad the bride’s father and according to plan, my white wedding was a huge success.
There was order of photo and we had to stay behind to take a shot with all the important personnel included. It was so overwhelming to be the president’s daughter inlaw. Everybody loved me.
I was about to leave the church when Jordan stopped me and asked for a minutes. Anxious about what he had to say, i left my bridal train and followed him.
Jordan held my hands when we got to a corner of the church, he looked into my eyes and smiled. I smiled back not knowing what he was upto. Jordan released my hand and brought out a small box, he handed it over to me and said “open up Nancy”.
I opened the box with my eyes fixed on Jordan. I was speechless when i saw the box content. It was the exact ring given to me by my parent and i gave it to Jordan some years back.
“I wanted to hold unto this before but now i think it belong to kelvin. Nancy i love you and i always will. Am happy for you and i want you to be happy for me. Wish me luck with Loretta sis. She got my heart beating fast but i don’t know if kelvin will let me.Nancy, i will still be here for you, I promise” Jordan said and kissed my hand.I felt a huge happiness in me as i went into his arms.
My heart was filled with happiness as i went into Jordan’s arms. The huge only lasted for awhile before we ended it.
“So that’s what i wanted to get down with. Let’s go rock the reception” Jordan said and we both laughed. I held the ring box close to my heart as we walked back to the car.
“Is someone trying to steal my bride?”
Kelvin said from behind just when i was about to open the car door.
“Been searching for my bride and my best man for hours now” Kelvin continued and i smiled at the realisation of what he was trying to insinuate.
“Don’t be scared, i won’t take away your bride, am no longer the bad guy you use to know” Jordan said and we all laughed.
“Common babe, we’re leaving in our new ride” Kelvin said and i asked what he ment.
Kelvin hurriedly informed me that the president shipped in a new ride for our wedding. I eagerly informed khole and the ladies of the change before i left with kelvin.
Kelvin had my eyes covered as he led the way to the new ride
“Do you guys realise that you don’t have time for all this surprise game. You are late for your own reception for Christ”
I heard Loretta’s voice infront of us. Kelvin finally opened my eyes and all i could scream was “Woah” when i saw the ride.
It was a beautifully decorated white Lamborghini Veneno.If not for my big wedding gown,i would have danced round the car before leaving in it.
Myself, kelvin,Loretta and Jordan occupied the Lamborghini while others followed in the ride they came with.
With fleets of classy ride,we made a grand exist from the church and a grand entry into the reception.
I had a change of dress in an arranged hotel room which was in the same compound with the reception hall.I wore a red dinner gown and a golden heels.I also had makeup retouch and within thirty minutes i was good to go.
MC Abbey handled the event and i danced into the hall with my groom and my beautiful bridal train.
It was a beautiful entry as we danced to Tiwa Savage performance.Everything was beautifully made to the extent that i got emotional at the beginning of the event.
The order of arrangement was followed and after lots of dancing, it was time for the bride to dance with the groom’s father.
“Now let’s the honourable president come on stage and the beautiful bride. I hope you are here with your dancing shoe sir” MC Abbey said and he exist the stage.
The president held my hand and walked me to the stage, i felt as if my heart was going to burst out with the amount of crowd and cameras. Everything felt so overwhelming.
Myself and the president danced to Kcee performance. I would have been overwhelmed by the number of celebrities and important personalities on sit but with the number of surprises i had received,i wouldn’t be surprise even if angels were in attendance.
The president was a good dancer and even through his dance, his joy could be felt. We were sprayed with different currency during the dance.It got to a point that i had to ask myself if the wealthy think before they spend lavishly.
We received a loud applaud from the crowd after the energetic dance with the president.
Mi mom was called upon to dance with the groom as i exist the hall, to have a change of dress.
When i returned,I met the bridal train dancing to kiss Daniel performance and they were lavishly sprayed as well.
With my cream gown on and a red heels, i was called upon to have a slow dance with my groom later on.
“African queen” was performed by the legendary 2face as i slowly danced with kelvin.Everything about the song was beautiful and the live performance made it more heart warming.
I looked into kelvin’s eyes and thought about the past, present and the future. Everything was a dream come through.All that happened was all i ever wished for, the only wish that was left out was impossible. I knew it could never happen but i still wished my parents were present to see their little girl get married infront of all the personalities on sit.Once again, i could not stop the tears that rolled down my face.
“Beautiful brides don’t cry” Kelvin said, bringing me out of my thought.He wiped my tears and said “I know you’re scared of what i will do to you tonight, don’t worry, it won’t hurt”
I smiled and pushed kelvin playfully.He held me close and kissed me on my lips. We remained like that till the performance ended.
The programme was followed and the last of it all was cutting of the cake.We fed ourselves with cake and wine and in the middle of it all, our childish act came up.
The programme came to a beautiful end, though the party was still on, myself and kelvin had a night flight to catch to the State for our honeymoon.
It got emotional when i had to say goodbye to my family. Mi mom could not stop praying for a safe journey and Mi dad could not stop confessing how much he would miss me.I expressed my gratitude to my inlaws and i told khole to take care of her baby before we finally left.
LET THE HONEY MOON BEGIN!
