A thousand possibilities

Falling in love in the most unexpected way is the sweetest thing but breaking up without an explanation is uncalled for.

Jean grew up in London and loved living there but after experiencing an awful break up she decided to leave her home country to put herself back together. After two months, she received an invitation to her sister's wedding. Jean flew back to London unexpectedly falling in love with the best man not knowing he was her ex-boyfriend's mate.

Will it be best to finish the missing pieces in the puzzle or find a new one and start again?


1. The Meeting


As soon as I received an invitation to my sister’s wedding, I booked the next flight to London. I have never even met the groom and then this? But I was so happy it feels like I was the one getting married! I love my sister to infinity. Our parents are barely home, they work in America and come home only once in three years. Because of this my sister and I really grew fond of each other.

I was waiting for my flight to be called and I felt the vibration of my cell phone

‘Text me when you arrive in the airport. I’ll be the one to pick you up. I miss you my sister! Take care!’

I smirked. I can’t believe how attached I am to my sister. Maybe because she picks what I wear, she chooses the clothes I am going to buy, she taught me almost everything I know and I’m really thankful for her.

I fastened my seat belt and the preparation for take-off began. We were informed that the flight from Manila to London is 12 hours with this I can feel that it will be a very boring ride. The person sitting beside me offered me the other side of her earphones.

“Hi I’m Danielle. Do you know One Direction?”

I stared at her, puzzled by her sudden question. I shook my head. Her eyes widened and her face filled with disgust.

“You don’t know One Direction?” once again I shook my head “You should listen to this song”

I was so focused in listening that I did not notice my hands were already tapping to the beat of the song.

I checked my watch and it’s already 10 in the evening and Danielle was fast asleep. I reached for my bag and searched for my diary. It may be too childish but I like the idea of writing something every now and then. By the way, I’m Jeanette but you can call me Jean. I’m 17 years old and I grew up in London but stayed with my aunt in the Philippines for the past 2 months. Anyway, I plugged in my earphones and listened to James Morrison’s Broken Strings. I was writing in my diary when I fell asleep.

I woke up because Danielle kept on poking my shoulders. “You have to get up. We’re in London and it’s 9 in the morning over here” I immediately texted my sister. My head is in cloud nine just thinking that I can finally see my sister again.

“JEAN!” I ran as fast as I could towards my sister, we gave each other a hug as big as the world. We stayed in that position before the groom finally stopped in front of us. “Hi Jean! Welcome back to London” He seems like a pretty decent guy and may I say he has the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen.

On the way to Bob’s house my sister and I keep chatting about what happened for the past two months and she filled me in with the details of her marriage.

“You’re going to be my maid-of-honor and Bob’s brother will be the best man”

I nodded “You’ll like him, he’s very sweet” she leaned in closer and whispered “handsome too”

Entering the house I was greeted with a hug from a girl named Anne. It seems she is the younger sister of Bob.

“Hi jean! It’s so nice to finally meet you. I have heard a lot of you from your sister” I was looking intently into her eyes. It seems that the beautiful eyes run in the family “Edward will be here any minute”

While waiting for the best man, Anne showed the room I will be staying at for the meantime. I unpacked some stuff and plugged in my earphones, this time I was listening to ‘Only with you by Keyshia Cole’ I stayed at the terrace and watched the sunset. I was singing through the lyrics when I heard another voice sing with me.

“You have a unique taste in music” I removed one side of my earphone and stared at him. He faced me and I was starstrucked. He is probably the best looking guy I have ever seen my entire life. I was literally frozen to my spot. I felt hands behind my back “Jean, he’s Edward he’ll be your partner in the wedding reception. Both of you have to come up with some sort of presentation okay? Good luck guys!” Bob said.

“Hi, I’m Harry but Anne call me Edward” he reached for my hand maybe wanting to shake hands but I could not move “are you okay?” he asked

Footsteps draw closer to where I was standing, “Good looking lad isn’t he?” I looked at Anne but Edward aka Harry walked out “as early as now I have to warn you. He is my brother and I love him but you have to watch out”

Finally my senses were back in place “What’s his name?”

Anne smiled at me “Wow! First time this ever happens. Come with me I’ll show you” I followed Anne in her room and sat beside her computer. I knew Edward was following us so I was even more nervous. She clicked Google images and typed Harry Edward Styles, “Here take a look”

I stared at the screen. Focused in looking at the pictures, I saw five guys all good looking and one of them was Harry. Anne laughed “Another first!” she looked at him

I felt Edward lean against the wall and he shoved his hands in his pocket. He just smiled and stared at me.

“You’ll find out about them sooner or later”
