“Rose, are you ready?” Mom asked excitedly. She was even more excited than me.
Make-up. Check. Gown. Check. Sandals. Check. Bouquet. Check. Accessories. Oh-oh.. It’s missing. Maybe it’s just in my jewelry box. Yes, my favorite bracelet is on my jewelry box.
“I’m ready mom.”
“Okay, let’s go.”
Before going out, I look at the mirror once more. I need to be beautiful. I feel nervous but I can do it. It’s my first time. Oh gosh... While on the car, Mom asks me.
“You seem to be nervous. Is that about your partner or because it’s your first time?”
“Don’t worry. You are not the bride, dear. You look even more nervous than the bride huh. Just kidding.”
“That’s so funny. I really laugh.” I said sarcastically.
After few minutes, we are there. Everybody’s getting ready. The wedding will start 5 minutes from now.
This is it. This is the day I will meet my partner and give her bracelet back. Hmmm.. i think I will not give it yet. I’m quite nervous. I can do it. I can. Harry Styles can do it. This handsome guy can do it. I said to myself.
“Good luck buddy.” Zayn said.
“Let’s go. They are already there.” Louis said.
“Okay, let’s go.” I replied.
The moment I saw the church, I was surprised. It looks so magical because of those glittering decorations, colorful flowers, and of course because of the beautiful bride.
“Okay. Okay. Get ready. We are going to start.” Steff said. She’s one of the organizers.
You can do it Harry. Just wait for her. I said to myself again. I can do it. No one can tell bad comments on this handsome guy.
“Hannah and Harry, where are you?” one of the organizers asked.
“I’m right here.” A girl shouted. I turn around to see her. And she is.... pretty. Yes, she is pretty.
“Harry?” the organizer asked.
“Right here.” I replied.
I went closer to her. She looks nervous and shy. Of course, we don’t know each other.
“Hi.” I greeted.
I was about to make conversation again but the organizer speaks again.
“Okay. 22.214.171.124 Let’s start.”
“Hold her hand.” Steff reminded.
I hold her hand. It’s not that smooth. It’s just okay, I mean normal. I hope she’s not the witch in my dream. Hahaha. It is so awkward. But I promise, soon, this awkwardness will be removed. We will be friends. I should earn confidence now to make that happen and return her bracelet.
“Harry?” the organizer asked.
“Right here.” He replied.
I look at him for the first time and he is really handsome. He is really handsome. Yes, he’s handsome. But i shouldn’t be attracted by his face, I still don’t know him personally. He’s still a stranger to me.
“Hi.” He greeted.
“Hello.” I replied.
But our conversation ended when the organizer talked.
“Okay. 126.96.36.199 Let’s start.” She said.
“Hold her hand.” Tita steff added.
Why do we need to hold each other’s hand? Urrgghhh... This is so awkward. His hand is soft; and me? It’s quite rough. It’s embarrassing.
We are walking down the aisle. I look at the people, they were all smiling. It’s so romantic especially when the music starts to play. A thousand years. I wish I was the bride. Just kidding! Then we parted ways. We, the bridesmaids are on the left while the groomsmen are on the right. Everybody’s done, except the bride. The beautiful bride walks down the aisle with tears in her eyes. Tears of joy. I was about to cry because of the song and the situation, but I saw Harry looking at me. It’s so embarrassing. Then he smiled. Sweet smile. He’s really handsome. Oppsss... Not again.
“Welcome everybody, we have been chosen to witness this very special moment in (Bride) and (Groom)’s life.”
Tita and tito also exchanged their vows. ‘Yes’- both of them answered. So romatic, Oh my... The wedding was almost finished. It took less than an hour, maybe.
“You may now kiss the bride.” The priest said.
The newly-weds kiss passionately. I look around to find mom. But she’s not here. I looked on the groomsmen’s place but to my disappointment, she’s not there. I saw Harry looking at me again. He looks at me like he wants to say something important. Hmmm... maybe she’s just looking at the person beside me. Maybe he likes her. Maybe not.
“Let’s go to the wedding reception.” Steff invited.
We went to the car. Steff started a conversation.
“So... what’s the feeling?”
“Your partner is handsome. You’re so good together.”
“Stop kidding me.”
“Seriously Rose, did you enjoy the experience?”
“Yes of course.”
“That’s good to hear.”
“We’re here.” I said after a few minutes.
“Yes. Let’s go.” I invited.
The first person I saw upon entering is mom with her friends. She is having a happy chat with them.
“Rose, Come here.’ Mom said and because I’m obedient, I went to her.
“This is Rose, my daughter.” She introduced.
“Hello Ma’am, Sir.” I greeted.
“Hi darling. You look pretty.” The woman said.
“Thanks Ma’am. Uhmmm... Excuse me for a while. I just need to go to the comfort room.” I excused.
“Okay. Just come back after.” The man said.
I hurriedly went to the comfort room. I also retouch. I need to look good. After 5 minutes, I decided to go out.
“Success.” I said to myself. But I regretted it after when I bumped into someone. I closed my eyes. I don’t know what will happen next.
“Ouch.” I fell on the ground. Ouch. My right foot hurts. The moment I open my eyes, I saw Harry.
“Sorry... Sorry....” he apologized. He helped me to stand up of course.
“I’m fine, I think.” I tried to walk but I can’t manage to do it. My right foot really hurts. I hate it. Not now please.
I walked but unluckily I slip because of these stupid heels. But a hand was able to catch me. I saw his face, 1 inch close to mine. His eyes, oh, his eyes are so beautiful. It’s green. We stare at each other for a minute. It’s so awkward. I feel like the world has stopped revolving. But my senses came back before it’s too late. I hurriedly stood up.
“My pleasure.” He replied.
“I have to go.”
“No, I’ll help you. I know you can’t manage to walk properly. Besides, it’s my fault.”
“No. I will feel guilty if I will not help you. I’ll just carry you.”
“What? No you can’t. It’s embarrassing.”
“I’ll just guide you.”
He is so nice. He really guided me. He is really concerned. And that’s what I’m looking for- a concerned friend. I hope we can be friends.
“Can we go to our car? I’ll just change my sandals.”
“Sure. Where is it?”
“There.” I pointed the black car.
“Thank you Harry.” I said when we reached the car.
“You know me?” he asked.
“You’re my partner right?”
“Oh yes, Hannah.”
“You know me?” I asked.
“You’re my partner right? He repeated my question. We both laugh. Then he talk again to avoid awkward silence.
“Are you done?” he asked.
“Yeah. Let’s go. And thanks again.”
Then we walked together and went to my mom’s place. They are going to eat already.
“Wanna join us?” I asked Harry.
“I want to, but I’m sure my friends are looking for me already.” He said.
“Oh. Okay. See you around.”
“Bye.” He waved and walked away.
