Tori Ortega was ordinary. She didn't ask for much, even though her parents could have bought the moon. She didn't ask for a boyfriend or really mess around with boys, until Issac. She didn't ask for any of what happened to her to happen to her, but once one bad thing happens, it spirals out of control.


18. Single Ladies Part 1

It was 12 when they got back to the hotel. They had about 3 hours to goof off before all of them had to go in for hair and makeup. None of the girls were allowed to see any of the boys, another Ortega family tradition, thought to legitimately kill the marriage. Her great-great aunt Helena, one of her bridesmaids saw the groom before the wedding and they hooked up. About two weeks later Helena's husband was found dead in the family home. They thought Helena did it and put her to death, after getting a confession from the bridesmaid that was his lover.

    “Let’s go to the pool, I wanna go swimming” Linda exclaimed!

    “What if the boys are in there” Juliet questioned?

    “Oh, well we shut down the entire hotel so that we could have a completely private wedding so I bet we will be able to find a person not in the wedding party to see if they are there”

    Just as she said that they heard knock at the door.

    “Who is it” Tori asked?

    “It’s Issac, I gotta talk to you”

    “No, Issac! Ortega family tradition the bridesmaids can not see the groomsmen before the wedding”

    “Oh, well then, I guess I will have to ask you later, but it’s urgent”

    “Ok, I will talk to you as soon as I can see you without killing both Linda and Cory” Tori laughed.

    “What do you mean” Issac asked, scared his crush was a psycho serial killer.

    “I will tell you later, now go” Tori laughed.

    “Okay, I will see you out there, bye” Issac said.

    “Wait Issac are you guys in the pool” Tori shouted after him.

    “No, we were hanging out in the buffet” Issac said.

    “Kay thanks, now go on and don’t come to the pool” Tori shouted.

    “Yes mam”

    They had all gotten into their suits and running down to the pool. No boys were in sight. The only person they were concerned about seeing them, in there tennie winy yellow polka dot bikini’s were there grandmother.

    “Why, Lindora, Julietta, Victoria you are showing quite a bit of skin” Henrita stated at her dismay.

    “Well Grandma, we are just trying to make the most of what little time we have left with Lindora before we have to give her up to the stay at home wife she is destined to be because of her bloodlines”Juliet truthed. The Ortega bloodlines for women, after marriage, normally meant you attended to the dishes and keeping the house clean for 1 year, while scheduling parties, then you have to get pregnant with your first child. After that you worry about keeping them higher class and raising them the Ortega way. You then have your second child and repeat the process. Life for Ortega’s was pretty much decided when you were born.

    Tori had never wanted that. Tori always wanted to travel and be free. The Ortega brand most thought was a gift, but to most born in Ortega’s it was a death sentence.

    “Victoria, are you okay” their Grandmother spoke getting her out of her haze.

    “Oh sorry, what was the question” Tori answered?
