6. Chapter 6

As quick as I could I rushed down the church’s steps and into the limo with Sean following suite. I ignored him completely as we made our way to get photos taken. After taking rather awkward photos where we actually had to look like we were in love I was so relieved when we made our way to a small pub we had hired out for the reception. As soon as we arrived all the guests were already waiting and we were introduced before we took our seats at the head table. I had Jasper to my right and Soph was next to him. After having dinner we all got up and danced the speaches soon followed and then it was time for our first dance. It was really awkward dancing with him but I covered that with a fake smile plastered on my face. We twirled and spun around together and my eyes caught sight of Harry. His teeth gritted together as he watched me dance with my husband. I shivered at that thought. Hudband. It’s such a foreign word to me.

 

Harry’s attention was taken by the blonde who invited him along. She said something that made him look guilty. He offered her his hand and they began to dance around with all the other couples. I instantly grew jealous and tensed up as I watched the two of them. Sean’s attention was on them aswell, they looked like they were having so much fun dancing unlike me. The songs pace picked up and now we were all jumping around on the dance floor. Luckily Soph and Jasper saved me from Sean so now he was with his mates. Soph and I started our little dance routine that would get a lot of male attention. I wasn’t afraid to show off my moves and doing it with Soph made it all the more fun. I looked around the room at all the happy smiling faces and then I focused on Harry again. He was sitting at his table, no blonde in sight. I told Soph that I was going to get a drink and then I made my way over to a lonesom Harry. I sat down in the chair beside him and his head shot up from his drink.

“Hey…” I said to him. A smile grew on his face and one on mine too.

“Hey there. Long time no see.” He smirked making me laugh.

“Definitely… So uh are you having fun?” I asked him.

“Slightly. I mean watching you dancing with Soph like you did last night is fun but watching you with that jerk makes me want to vomit.” He told me honestly.

“Me too.” I told him sadly.

“So what now Mrs. Renalds?” Harry asked me.

“I haven’t got the slightlest clue. I had Sean sign a prenup earlier.” I smiled at him.

“Oh really what for?” He asked intrigued.

“Just so if I decide to divorce him then he wont be able to change the business contract our parents have. I just wanted to protect my parents, I don’t care if I don’t get a single cent from him.” I explained to Harry he nodded as he looked like he was trying to understand my reasoning.

 

“I get you… I mean I would do anything to protect my parents.” Harry told me after a minute or two of silence.

“Yeah… So what are you and boys planning for in the future?” I asked him to continue the conversation I never wanted to end.

“We have the next few months with recording for our new album and a bunch of award shows to go to. I was thinking about going to my parents next month.” He smiled at me happily.

“I bet they would love that.”

He was about to say something more when the blodie from earlier came up beside us. I turned to face her and she was in shock.

“You!” I pointed my finger at her.

“You! What-What are you- I thought I wouldn’t see you.” She stuttered.

“I’m here saying hello to my new friend… What are YOU doing at my wedding?” I asked her raising my voice a bit and I stood up to be at her level.

“I… I… I was just… Sean invited me.” She sighed and looked at the ground.

“Oh he did? I thought I told him I never wanted to see you around again.” I said angrily.

“I’m sorry Lex I honestly didn’t think I’d see you.” She told me using her old nickname for me. I scoffed, yeah sure wouldn’t see me at my own wedding! Okay you might be confused at this point. Her name is Shantelle and she is one of Sean’s ex girls only they kept seeing each other even once they were told to break it up by his parents. I caught them in bed about 5 months ago when I really felt like I was getting close to Sean. I guess he was just being kind to me back then because he felt bad for seeing Shantelle behind my back. Yeah there was about 2 or 3 months of this engagement where I stopped fooling around with other guys and actually thought Sean and I could make this work.

 

“You two know each other?” Harry asked cutting between the tense atmosphere that surrounded us.

“Unfortunately.” I spat.

“We used to be so close you know…” Shantelle said to me.

“Yeah until I found out you were sleeping with Sean.” I hissed.

“I honestly thought you hated him alright I thought I was helping you.” She tried to depend her actions.

“You would have known if you were there for me that for two months or so I tried to make it work with Sean, he was caring towards me, we cuddled every night he was home. Too bad he was busy hooking up with you everytime I went to uni.” I said to her angrily.

“I didn’t know any of that I’m sorry.” She told me sounding sincere.

“Yeah sure and that’s exactly why youre at my wedding. You know I really don’t care if you fuck him anymore. Go ahead I never wanted this wedding.” I told her with a smug smile on my face.

“You know what you can just drop dead like your sister! It would make everyone’s life so much better!” She spat at me. I looked up at her with pained eyes, why would she bring her into this! She was the only one of my friends I ever told. I didn’t say anything more I just turned around and stormed away from them. I heard a chair shuffle behind me as I made my way towards the bathroom. Luckily no one had noticed the scene as they were all too busy dancing the night away.

 

Pushing my way through the bathroom door I went to the basin and placed both my hands at equal distance. Looking in the mirror I took in everything, the red eyes, the tears threatening to spill, the wedding dress, the scowl I had plastered on my face and the tattoo. Her face popped into my mind, that smile I loved to see. I looked down at my feet and admired how well the dress fit me. If it wasn’t a sham wedding I might actually have enjoyed wearing this. My eyes shot up when I heard the door softly close and then I realized Harry had followed me. His eyes were full of concern but he didn’t say anything. He locked the door softly and just looked at me. I felt like he wanted to say something but he just stayed there silently. I fought back the tears and I luckily won, it would not look good to be crying on my wedding day. Oh heck it would not look good that I walked to the bathroom with Harry following.

“You need to leave.” I told him softly.

“I’m not going anywhere when my friend needs me.” He said and took a step forward.

“No just go.” I told him again. He didn’t reply but he did take another step forward.

“Please-“ He took another step. “Just-“ Another step. I couldn’t finish my sentence as he was just centremeters away from me. I gulped down my nervousness as we stared into each others eyes.

 

“Tell me.” He said softly.
