18. Chapter 17.
Months are passing:
It’s around spring time now. My bakery is coming on well. The floor is being put in and the walls insulated. The boys have been helping out too. Niall and I are also doing lots of planning for the wedding. Where hoping to have in it next spring. Lexi, Eleanor and Perri (meeting her for the first time) are going bridesmaid shopping. Lexi’s my maid of honour. We walk into the bridesmaid shop in the village. I talk to the lady and told her I was looking for a green or mint coloured. We look along riles looking at dresses. We picked out many dresses. The girls went in and tried on many dresses. They tried on a short light green dress with a brown ribbon belt, an emerald green strapless dress. Then we found the right one. It was mint green, with straps and a diamond beaded belt. I paid for the dresses. We left with them and headed to a shoe shop. We walked in and looked at mint green shoes and other shoes that weren’t for the wedding! Then we found a mint pair of heels with gold studs on the toes of them. We left with the paid shoes and went for lunch. We walked into a café. We sat at a table for 5. A waiter came down and took our orders. We talked about romance, past and girl talk. Our food came down and we ate. After we ate, we walked home.
We walked into the house. The boys where all there in my apartment. Louis and Zayn heard the door close and ran in tackling Perri and Eleanor in a hug. Lexi walked in and sat on a sleepy Liam’s lap who suddenly woke up. Niall was in the kitchen (as usual) getting a snack. “Hello Mr. Horan” I giggled robbing one of his crisps. “Hello future Mrs. Horan” he smiled kissing me. I walked into the bedroom and placed the bags into the wardrobe. I walked out to the boys playing on my play station. I started walking towards the door. “Haley where you going?” asked Niall. “Going down to see how the bakery is” I replied. “I’m coming” shouted Niall. I grabbed my phone and keys and walked out with Niall. “Do you know who your best man is?” I asked him. “I was thinking Greg” he replied. “Ask him” I said. “He did pick you”. “Theo and David can be the page boys” I said. We arrived at the bakery. I took out the keys and opened the door. We walked in. The floor was finished and so was the walls. The kitchen was to be delivered around autumn and winter.
Months passed: January
The kitchen has been fitted and we have now put the bakery on hold as the wedding is in 2 months. Niall, the boys, my dad, and Niall’s dad, Greg, Theo and David are gone out for the suits. My dress is being kept in the shop till the week of the wedding. Everything is ready. Where getting married on a Saturday. My mam has come up to Dublin for the weekend with my dad and David. The girls all came over for our girly day. Denies came up and Perri and Eleanor came over. My hens is in the last week of February.
Hen’s Night: 3 weeks to wedding.
No one but I and Niall know what where doing. The boys are in my apartment and the girls are in Lexi’s. We all changed into our party outfits. I wore a knee high red dress with red heels my hair down and a pink tiara with a sash with Bride to be on it. Lexi wore a black lace arms with a hole at the neck with a knee high skirt dress and black shoes that are leopard print heels, her red hair curled at the bottom and a leopard print clutch bag with a gold chain. We left the building and all got into my car. I texted Niall telling him we left.
*Skip the car ride*
We arrived at the start of the start of the Hen’s night. The boys pulled up beside us and they got out. “What are the boys/girls here” asked Harry and Perri. “We’ll guys and gals” started Niall. “Where all going” I said. “GO KARTING” Niall and I shouted. We all walked into the building and got our helmets. We all climbed into a kart. We all got ready. The lights turned green and we all speed off. By the last lap Harry went off the track and had to get out of the kart and push the kart back onto the track. Niall was close behind me. I passed the finish line. Niall and I won. We got out and celebrated. Lexi came second and Zayn came third. Afterwards the girls went to a disco and the boys went out to a club. As we arrived at the disco we danced and danced all night. We had a couple of drinks and had lots of laughs. Around 2am we left. We arrived home. The boys weren’t home yet. Perri went and stayed with Lexi and Eleanor stayed with me. We fell asleep. I half heard the boys come in around 3:30am- 4am. Niall climbed into bed beside me and fell asleep. “Night Love” he said. “I love you!”
