On the wedding day, Kate went nuts! She worry about the food, the reception what if it would go wrong. Jone kept calming her best friend down and assuring her that everything will be alright. She was reassured alright, and all of a sudden she was crying. The bridesmaids who were all in Kate's hotel room including Jone, panicked. Each one of them did their best to soothe Kate but she cried even more.
"Kate what's wrong?" Jone asked.
"Nothing," she sobbed.
"Tell us if you need anything or something to stop you from crying." one of the bridesmaids asked her.
"Will anyone of you call Lester and check on him if he's coming to the wedding?" she asked sobbing.
Jone and the three bridesmaids exchanged looks. "Go," Jone told one of them who nodded and dialed Lester's number on her mobile. Turning to her bestfriend she said, "Kate, I really don't know what you're going through right now. But I know you're in panick, just please stop crying? We have to change your make up again and it's an hour before your wedding ceremony!"
"I don't think I can do this Jone," Kate sobbed.
"You can do this! You need to." Jone said.
"Lester's coming to the wedding," the bridesmaid announced. "And he's asking if everything's okay."
"Tell him everything's fine," Jone said. She turned back to her friend. "See, Lester's worried. Now let's go to the bathroom and wash your face so we can do you a new make up okay?"
Kate nodded her head and followed Jone. The bridesmaids scrambled to prepare the make up kit, one took a towel readying it for Kate and the other was still talking to Lester on the phone making sure that he knows Kate was fine.

"Mac," Lester came to Mac who was standing outside the balcony talking to Henri, Jone's friend in Violetrock who arrived over the weekend and insist that he stay at the hotel instead of staying at Jone's place.
"What's up buddy?" Mac asked.
"Can you do me a favor?" Lester asked, he looked worried.
"Sure what is it?"
"Can you go check the girls in Kate's room?"
"Is there a problem?" Mac was concerned.
Lester then explained to him how he got a phone call from one of the bride's maids asking him if he was coming to the wedding because Kate wants to know. After Lester explained, Mac rushed to Kate's room on the tenth floor of the hotel. He pressed on the doorbell, five minutes later the door opened. Mac's eyes widened. Standing in front of him was a stunning Jone. She was wearing a v-cut long royal blue dress , with a thin silver belt just below her breast. She had a set of silver Louis Vuitton jewelries, earings, necklace and a ring.
"Mac!" Jone spoke.
Mac blinked. "Hey love," he stammered. Before he knew it, and he was not supposed to kiss her just as he promised himself, not unless she asked, Mac pulled Jone into his arms and kissed her on the lips.
Jone willingly kissed him back, and they both felt that longing to kiss each other. Why the hell did he made that promise?! Jone pushed him back lighlt. "Why are you here? And what was that for?" she asked.
Remembering the reason why Lester sent him there, he asked Jone if everything was okay. Jone said everything was okay and Kate was now under control, who had a panic attack earlier. And he said that the kiss was for how happy he was to finally have her. He kissed her one last time and went back to tell Lester that everything was fine.

Jone couldn't help her tears from falling during the exchange of vows. Kate was finally married, Kate who never have plans of marrying at all. She could still remember their conversations when they were younger. Kate wants to be in a band that would make it to popularity, and she said she wasn't getting married because it will only stop her band carrier. Jone, wants to be a popular rockstar too, but dreams of getting married and have a family of her own. Kate kepw saying how lame she was, but look at Kate now. She is finally a wife!

The reception was held at the Meridian Hotel, and there are more than two hundred guests most of them relatives of both husband and wife. Jone hates giving speech infront of a lot of people but she has to because it was her best friend and she was one who has to say something about Kate. After she did her part, she went back to the crowd looking for her boyfriend Mac and her friend Henri. Mac was standing by the entrance alone.
"Where is Henri?" she asked.
"Talking to one of Lester's female relative," Mac answered sliding his arm on her waist. "Heels are really useful," he joked.
Jone rolled her eyes. "I may be short, but you can't take your eyes away from me."
"You're right about that," he kissed her briefly on the lips.
For the first time in a week since they had officially been together, this morning was the first time Mac kissed her. He was a good kisser, but other than that Jone was so aware of how the kiss affected her. She thought it would be feel so weird but it wasn't. It was perfect, she didn't feel disgusted kissing Mac at all, she finally knew what it was like to kiss him. She had been dreaming about that back in high school.

"Mark, when will you ever get married?" his father asked him two hours later, the two of them were sitting on the sofa just outside the hall where the reception was held. "You're my only child who's still single."
Mac laughed. He was glad Jone was inside with Kate, or it will be another embarrassing moment. "I will get there dad, I promise."
"Don't ever let Jone go this time," Mr. Williamson said. "She's a very nice woman, and she's the only female you have in your life that your mother and I approve of."
True. Mac had introduced lots of women in his past to his parents, and they would always tell him that they didn't like her at all. His mother told him once that if he was bringing another female in their mansion, he need not bother because they aren't interested in meeting anymore of his play things. "Why is that dad?" he asked his father.
"Because she's the only girl who knows how to respect your parents." His father said in disbelief that Mac hadn't seen that. "She is very kind, always looks up to me and your mother like we are her parents. Very attentive to what we have to say and very respectful. While those women you have slept with have nothing but the interrest of getting into bed with you."
"You know how handsome you son is dad," he joked, but he never realized that till now. What his dad had told him are all true.
"Watching you and Jone, I couldn't help but feel happy for the two of you. When will you propose to her?" Mr. Williamson looked at his son with a smile.
"Don't you think Jone and I should give it maybe two years in the relationship?" he asked his father.
"Are you having second thoughts or doubts about Jone?"
Mac shook his head. "No dad."
"Good to hear that," his father sighed. "I'm just too excited watching you and Jone. When the time is right, I know you will propose to her."
"That's my next plan dad," he answered. Of course now that Jone was his girlfriend he will have the proposal next, which will not happen too soon because Jone seemed to be very at the moment. He had been saying 'I love you' because that's what he truly feels but Jone had never say those three words back yet. She probably still can't believe that they were actually together now, and Mac was willing for her to get comfortable in their relationship.

"I'm happy for you," Henri said. He and Jone were dancing a sweet song.
"Thank you so much Henri," Jone answered smiling at him.
"And I'm jealous." he said in a low voice.
Jone pulled back slightly as they danced and looked at Henri. "Why?"
"Because you can never be mine." Henri answered hopelessly.
It was one of those days when Henri was so dramatic!
"We tried right?" she asked him.
Henri nodded his head and looked into her eyes. "I will miss you when you leave Violetrock."
"You can always come to BlueSeas Henri," she said softly.
"And what? Be rather more jealous seeing you with Mac?" he said miserably. "I'm not jealous in a horny way just so you know."
She laughed. "You're crazy don't you know that?"
"I know," Henri laughed. "I'm dreading that day my bestfriend leaves me."
"That's how it is. But you are always welcome here Henri. My family loves you and they are so fond of you."
"I love them and I am fond of them too. When I get married, all of you should come to my wedding okay? Lester and Kate too."
Jone looked at him closely. "You're talking about wedding, like you even have a girlfriend."
"I really hate when you put my hopes down Joan, do you know that?"
Jone laughed. "I missed having an argument with you. So who is the lucky girl?"
"Probably one of Lester's cousin," Henri answered with a smile.
"Henri, you are not to play with Lester's cousin!"
He shook his head. "No Jone, no. That's not gonna happen. I've never felt like this for anyone before. I've dated lots of women, but she has a different effect on me."
"Did you get horny?" she wants to know, because that was what Henri usually felt for women he is attracted to.
"She was like a magnet pulling me towards her. She has this angelic smile and she's such a lovely woman to talk to. And yes I got horny just talking to her a little while later."
Jone laughed once more. "Oh Henri! You are so funny."
"You're the only woman I can talk to about being horny, so let me be." he twirled her and she giggled, then he caught her with his arm and they slow danced once more.
Henri was a dear friend, and she knows that when the time she was leaving Violetrock there will be tears falling from her eyes. He was the person who helped her move on from that heart break with Hadi, and the person who strongly convinced her that she was in love with Mac and so was Mac in love with her too. He was never wrong!

Jone was leaning against Mac, his arms circled her waist. It was so wonderful to be in his arms, Jone couldn't get enough of being close with him. Whenever they're apart, there is that feeling of missing him and that pain in the pit of her stomach. Her feelings for him was driving her crazy yet she couldn't help it.
The two of them were at the terrace watching the sunset. Most people left the hotel, Jone and Mac however decided to stay till the party was over and the knew married couple were ready to go home.
"Jone," Mac spoke.
"Yes," she answered.
"Will you let me kiss you?"
She turned to face him and circled her arms around his neck. "Are you that gentleman to all of your girlfriends?"
He shook his head. "Just you."
"You have all the rights to kiss me because you're my boyfriend remember?"
"I will keep that in mind," he puller her to him crushing her breast against his chest and kissed her like he never kissed before.
