59. Chapter Fifty Nine

Natalia's POV

"We don't have time for this right now! Zac's at the church, and we didn't even leave the hotel room!" My mom yelled, pacing around the hotel room with her long white dress flowing out. I struggled to strap Zack into his car seat, as she paced around and yelled at us, girls. "I told him to take the baby. But no, he couldn't take him. Instead, we get stuck with the kid. He took Macey. And she's a girl!"

"Mom, it doesn't help when you scream and yell. He's about to start crying, so either be quiet, or stop being a freaking bridezilla for one second, and take care of your son." 

"Mrs. Grey, the limo is here," Amber informed, closing the blinds.

"Thank you, Amber. This isn't stressful enough, and you had to say the limos here." I groaned.

"Sorry." My mom handed me, my brother, without his car seat, and walked to do the door.

"I can't figure that out right now. Just hold him." She said, before walking out the hotel room. I rolled my eyes and put my arm around Zack's small waist. Today, my mom and Zac are getting married. I was shocked when my mom told me they planned it all out already and got tuxedos and dresses for the wedding party. I had no idea they were actually having a wedding, I just thought they were going down to town hall and getting their marriage certificate. What even shocked me more, was when my mom broke the news that Jason, Amber and I were in her wedding party. All three of us. And the fact that my mother chose me to be her maid-of-honor really surprised me.

It took about ten minutes to get to the church, and my mom hurried out of the limo. "Thank you." I smiled to the driver, who just smiled back. Not very talkative. We walked into the lobby of the church, seeing the groomsmen all standing in order for us to go in. I walked next to Jason and took in his appearance.

"Why. Hello." I smiled.

"Hello to you too. I love the color on you. Brings out your eyes."

"Shut up." Amber stood behind us, and occasionally, I felt her tap on my shoulder, or pull on my dress, or even my hair. I finally turned around and looked her in the eye.

"This is weird."

"Shush." Due to the court order placed on Uncle Cile when he was released from prison, he has to walk down the aisle with Amber, instead of me. Uncle Cile is Zac's best man, which is also, shocking. The wedding arranger, God bless her soul, opened the doors to the church, and the music started playing. The first step I took, I almost fell. I'm so nervous, and it's not even for my own wedding. After the wedding party was in the church, and standing at the altar, the music started playing the wedding song. My mom and grandma stood at the top of the aisle, my mom's veil covering her face, but the smile on her face couldn't be mistaken.

With every step she took, I admired her. In her life, she had ups and downs. From suffering her husband's death, to me being a terrible daughter, then to marrying an amazing and gold-hearted man, as shed light on me. I never thought I would say this, but I wish I had my mom's life.

"Good afternoon. We are gathered here today to celebrate the holy matrimony between Taylor Rose Georgina Gabaldi and Zachary Joseph Klein." My smile faded as I heard the last name. Taylor Rose Georgina Gabaldi. Her maiden name, my grandmother's name. Gabaldi. My dad would be turning over in his grave if he ever heard someone call my mother by her maiden name. I'm sure he's turning over in his grave now. My mom and dad are technically still married. She never divorced him, so they're still married, right? She's a widow. A pinch on my hand made me come back from my thoughts, making me look up and over at Amber standing next to me.

"Stop looking angry." She whispered. I put the smile back on my face, fixed my shoulders, and took a deep breath. Man, my feet really hurt. After everything was said, the vows finally came. My mom and Zac decided it was best to write their own vows, because it shows just how much love they have for each other, and it reminds everyone that people can have a second chance.

"Zac, I don't know how many times I can thank you. You came into my family knowing my situation, knowing that I was a widow, knowing I had two girls. If you told me, when we first met, five years ago, that I would marry that dorky partner in room 507, I wouldn't believe you. But here we are, standing in a church. Getting married." My mom laughed, sniffling a little. "And when I needed someone there to hold me, you were there. And when I looked into those brown eyes, I knew I would love you."

Zac's vows are going to be great. Considering I helped him write every single word he wrote on that paper, it should be really good. "Taylor, I can't believe I'm here today, standing before you, with my heart in my hands, ready to give you. I took on an already started family, and I was hated for most of the time. But today, I stand before you, giving you my heart, but not just to you, I give my heart to you, Natalia, Macey, your past, your present and your future. I love you so much, and I'm standing here today, expressing the words of your seventeen-year-old daughter, who helped me write these vows." He laughed. I smiled and nodded.

"Rings, please." The priest smiled. Jason walked forward, holding Zack. Jason put his hands over Zack's, and lead them to the priest's hands. "Thank you." After my mom and Zac repeated after the priest the words they had to say, he closed his book and looked out at the family seated in the pews. "Most people would say, I now pronounce you husband and wife, but I say... I need a beer." The families laughed, and some shook their heads.

"Zachary, Taylor, I now pronounce you Mr. And Mrs. Klein. You may kiss the bride." He smiled, watching as Zac stepped forward, took off my mom's veil, and kissed her passionately. Everyone clapped, as they turned to the family. The wedding party stayed in the church along with my mom and Zac, for some pictures. They decided it was best to just take family pictures at the church, so then we could just go right over to the reception.

"Jackson, don't be a stranger, come up here with us." My mom smiled. Jackson looked around, before walking up to the wedding party. He walked behind Jason, but my mom shook her head.

"Amber is here since you're her date, go stand with her." My mom ordered.

"We're only friends." Amber huffed. Amber decided to make her plus one Jackson, because she and Cameron aren't exactly on talking terms, and Nick obviously doesn't like Am, so Jackson was her only hope. And he agreed to go, which actually surprised Jason and I. Jason put his hand around my waist, holding me close to his chest, as I turned to look at the camera. "Smile wide." The camera guy smiled. I gave my best smile, and the flash went off.

"I need a drink." My mom whispered. I laughed and nodded.

"Me too." She looked at me. "Oh come on, you can't say you never drank when you were my age."

"I'll let you have campaign when the speeches come."

 

"Who's ready for the wedding party!?" The DJ asked into the microphone. I heard several claps and several cheers, as the doors opened.

"Maid-of-honor, Natalia with boyfriend, Jason, and sister Macey!"

"Bridesmaid, Amber with best man, Cile!"

"Bridesmaid, Lilliana with the groomsman, Brody!" We all stood to face the entranceway, waiting for the guests of honor to be called into the venue. My jittery hands took Jason's into mine, making him look down at me and smile.

"Everyone, welcome out the guests of honor, the newlyweds, Mr. And Mrs. Klein!" He yelled. Everyone cheered as my mom and now step dad danced out to the dance floor. "Now to celebrate their first dance as a married couple, please, come out to the dance floor, Taylor and Zac." He smiled, as the beginning of a song came on. After the first verse, the wedding party started to move their way to the dance floor to dance with their spouses or boyfriends or girlfriends.

Jason put his arms around my waist and put his forehead on mine. "You look beautiful." He whispered.

I have died every day waiting for you. Darling don't be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand more.

I looked out of the corner of my eye, seeing Jackson and Amber staring at us and smiling. "They're looking at us," I whispered. He shrugged, and kissed my forehead. But they weren't the only ones staring. My mom and Zac were staring too. "Why is everyone staring?"

"I don't know. Just like you told me, keep your eyes on me, and don't think about them. It's me and you." I smiled widely and put my head on his chest. Once the song came to an end, everyone clapped. Jason and I made our way to our table, which was the same table that Jackson, Amber, and Macey had. My mom said she put us, girls, together because we're her daughters. Although Amber isn't her daughter, she treats he as if she is.

"I'm starving." I groaned, picking at the bread on my plate.

"Well yeah, your mom got you the wrong size dress, and you had to fit in it somehow."

"I've eaten salad this whole week. Breakfast, lunch and dinner." I groaned. "And I need food. I want chicken fingers and fries." Zac put his hand on my shoulder and leaned down to me.

"That dance, it looked like you were getting married." I smiled. "We're thinking about doing the speeches now, to get them out of the way. The dinner is gonna be served, and that's when we'll do them when they're starting to hand out the dinner." I nodded. "So, let's go." 

The microphone was handed to me, and I cleared my throat quickly. Everyone looked to me, so, basically, almost two hundred eyes were on me, but my eyes were only on one person. "Um, hi. I'm Talia, the maid-of-honor." I said awkwardly. "I've never been in a wedding before, let alone be the maid-of-honor, but I'm glad to that the first wedding I was in, was my mom's. Mom, I never liked the thought of you being with someone else, and I never wanted to see it. But I can see now that the love you and Zac share is one of a kind. No matter what I say, or do, I will always look up to you, both of you, because you inspire me to love. Mom, I know dad is looking down right now, smiling at you, and patting Zac on the back. I know he's proud of you, and I know he would be proud that you moved on and found love again. And Zac... I hope you're ready to take on this family because you're our dad now. But you're not only a dad to us now, you're a friend.

"I remember when I was little, my mom would tuck me into bed, and she would tell me, 'Talia, one day, you're going to find someone as good as your father, and he's going to love you, and cherish you.' And now, I have the right to say... Mom, you found someone who is as good as my father, and he loves you and cherishes you." My mom wiped her tears and stood up.

"I love you so much." She whispered, kissing my cheek.

"I love you too,"  Zac hugged me tightly, but I couldn't go around the big smile he had on his face.

"Would it be weird if I said I love you?"

"Considering you're actually my dad right now, no."

"Then, I love you."

"I love you too." Once I sat down, Jason's hand went right to my back and rubbed it smoothly.

"Food?" I asked, looking at my plate.

"That's your food," Amber replied. I smiled widely and cut my steak.

"Oh my god, this tastes like heaven." I groaned, leaned my head back. My table laughed at my reaction, but Macey didn't.

"What's up, Mace?" I asked, looking at her.

"I can't cut my chicken."

"Do you want me to cut it for you?"

"Can Jason cut it? He makes funny faces when he cuts my chicken." I passed Macey's plate to Jason, and he just looked at me.

"You make funny faces when you cut her chicken."

"I hate being a sap."

 

"My feet are killing me." I groaned, taking my heels off my feet, as we made our way to the hotel room. My mom decided it would be best to stay in the hotel we were at before the wedding in the Upper East Side because it would be easier than going all the way back to Brooklyn. Jason, Jackson, Amber and I all get to share a bed. At first, we were going to get conjoining rooms, but mom said it would be too much money, so we all have one room. When we talked about it, Amber and I were going to share a bed, and then Jason and Jackson were going to share a bed, but the boys said it would be too weird.

"I'm not sleeping in the same bed as Jackson. That's gross." Amber said.

"It's not like he's going to try anything on you. Just sleep in the bed and put a barrier up." I replied as we got coffee from the lobby.

Jason's POV

"You and Talia danced nicely tonight," Jackson said.

"What are you, my mom?" I asked, unbuckling my pants belt.

"No, I'm just saying. I could see you two getting married, you know? Like, it's that clear." I rolled my eyes.

"Can I tell you something?" I asked, sitting on the bed.

"You know you can, man." He said, sitting across from me on his bed.

"I was doing some thinking. And we're graduating next year." He nodded. "And I was thinking about... Well, proposing to Talia after graduation."

"Do it." I looked at him. "It means you'll be tied down at eighteen or nineteen, but it'll be worth it. So, do it." I smiled widely and laid back.

"Let me tell you, I saw you two out on the dance floor tonight, and you looked at her like she was the only girl in the world." I smiled. "And she looked at you like you were the only one." 

"When did you get so smart?"

"Since I started hanging out with Amber and the girls." I laughed and shook my head. "We're saps, Jase. We went from hooking up every other week, to holding down one girl. How did this all happen?"

"Love." I replied simply as the girls came back into the room. They both got into bed, but Amber put a bunch of pillow behind her.

"You don't cross this line."

"Wouldn't want to." But we all knew that was a lie.

"I love you," Talia whispered, turned her body towards me.

"And I love you," I replied before she closed her eyes. Her nose crinkled slightly, and her eyes fluttered. Proposing on graduation of next year. Being together forever. What happened to me? This girl is what happened. This beautiful, geeky, loving girl has changed me from being the biggest player in Brooklyn, to being the biggest sap. And I think I'm starting to accept and love it.
