16. Willow Tree Again
-Anna- (Wedding Day)
The August morning air is fresh and the sun is shinning. I drove over to the willow tree on the hill, where my father is. I walked up to his grave and I grabbed some flowers that matched my wedding. "I wish you were here with me today, dad." I said. Tears began to fill my eyes. "To walk me down the aisle to see me get married to Niall. I know you're here with me, but I just wish it was physically too." I said and a flashback came to me.
"Are you ready, Anna?" My mum said to me after zipping up her wedding dress. "It's not my big day just yet, mum." I told her and she grinned. "I've never met Niall before, but I am sure he will be a great stepbrother to you." She told me and then slowly kissed my head.
I remebered that fresh memory. Meeting Niall for the first time that day, something I will never forget. "Anna? What are you doing here?" I turned around and saw Bobby standing there. "Bobby, what are you doing here?" I asked him. "Your mum told me that you would probably be here." He said and I nodded. "Just wanted to come visit my dad on my wedding day. It's been almost 12 years since my father has been dead. I just wish he was here on a special day." I said. Bobby nodded and walked over to hug me.
"Anna, I never met your father. But the way you and your mum talk about him, he sounded like a amazing guy. He was lucky to have as a daughter. I'm lucky to have everyone in my life." Bobby said and I smiled. "Bobby?" I asked. "Yes?" He said. "Will you do the honor of walking me down the aisle in place of my father?" I asked and he smiled. "Absolutely, Anna. I'd be honored to." Bobby said. I hugged him tightly with tears running down my face. "Dry up those tears, you have a big day ahead of you." He said wiping the tears away. I smiled so happily, I felt my dad was watching me, smiling too.
