It's been a week since I have told Richard I wanna have a true marriage, a true wedding, and true love. It's been a week since I have confessed my feelings to Richard.
I haven't smiled this much ever since my mother told me that the groom whom I'll be married to is Richard.
Richard is different, more like he has been acting this whole time we've been not so friends, meanwhile I was not being very nice too, so we're equal.
The reason I smile this much is Richard, he's so kind, loving and caring, and that look he gives me whenever I tell him I love him melts anybody's heart right away.
We decided to have our wedding in a week, which is today, I have worn the wedding dress Richard bought me, he told me to wear it for the guy I love, to wear it for my true love, and here I am wearing it for my love, wearing it for the guy who changed my thinking about love, about guys, and about life.
I opened my wardrobe and grabbed the big luggage which contained my wedding dress. I unzipped the luggage and grabbed my pretty wedding dress, I unzipped my dress, and put my legs between the many soft and silky layers of my wedding dress, then I wore it and zipped the zipper.
Since me and Richard have decided to have a small simple wedding, just for the two of us. Since nobody knew that our marriage was fake, so I decided to put on a simple make up, and we also decided to have the wedding in a church because Richard said that's what his grandmother has always wanted before she passed away. Otherwise both of us are not very religious.
I walked to the mirror, and put my bag of makeup in front of me, I pulled my hair into a ponytail, and started doing my makeup, since my hair was still a little wet from the shower I took a few minutes ago, I decided to leave it for the last.
I put a little bit of primer on my face, then a foundation which was exactly the same tone of my skin color, I put beige eye shadow as a base for my eye shadow, then I worked on making my eyes to look brown and smokey, since my eyes are brown. I put pink lipstick on my lips, and a little bit of blush, I didn't want to wear too much makeup, because Richard told me all week that I look pretty without makeup.
Also I know that Richard likes my eyes, so I wanted to wear a smokey eye shadow so that it pops my eyes.
Lastly I undid my hair, and curled the end of my hair strands.
I stared at myself in the mirror one last time, and was ready to go.
I put on my white heels on, and walked towards my car, before I get in the car, I cautiously turned around, and saw no one suspicious. So I got in my car, and drove to the church Richard has mentioned.
As I arrived I parked my car not so far from the church, right beside Richard's car, I got out of my car, and stared at Richard's car with a big smile on my face, if anybody sees me right now they'd think I'm some crazy clingy bride. I was actually very happy that Richard has arrived before me, He told me to call him when I arrive, so I dialed his number on my phone and waited for his answer.
" Hello, Kris! You arrived?" Richard's voice greeted me from the other line of the phone, I smiled shyly when I heard him call me by that nickname he used to call me when we were children, then bit my lip and remembered that he can't see me.
"Yeah, Richard! I'm right beside your car" I declared and looked up at the sky, the clouds were about to block the sun's rays from reaching the ground, I smiled, I hoped it rains, I love rain so much.
" Okay, sweetheart. Just come in until you see a red door, then turn to the left, open the second door to the left and come in" Richard said, but I was too busy replaying the word 'sweetheart' many times in my mind.
I smiled and nodded my head, then I remembered again that he can't see me.
"Uh.. okay." I said slowly, and felt my cheeks burn from embarrassment, look what Richard does to me.
"Kris? You okay?" Richard asked, his deep voice full of concern.
"Yeah, I'm totally fine!" I replied quickly, I didn't want to embarrass myself any further.
"Okay, baby. Come now, I'm waiting for you"
"Okay, I'm coming" I said and was about to hung up, when I heard Richard's voice again calling me name.
"And Kriten?" Richard said
"Yeah?" I said.
" I love you!"
"I love you too"
I hung up the phone and started walking towards the church's door, I got in the church and looked for the red door Richard talked about. I found the red door and walked towards it. I arrived at the red door, and kept wondering if Richard said to turn to the left or right?
God I was too busy fantasizing about Richard, that I forgot which way he told me to go.
I turn to the left anyways and opened the second door, I went in and closed the door after me.
I turned around and saw Richard grinning at me, showing his beautiful smile and beautiful white teeth.
I smiled back and looked at the flower in his hands, he told me he'd buy me flowers and true to his words, he has bought me my favorite flowers, tulips.
I walked slowly towards him, and as I got nearer to him, my heart was beating harder, it was pounding against my chest.
This is how a wedding should be, just you and him and your love. Everything else doesn't matter.
I walked and walked, but my legs were about to shake, I don't know if it was because of Richard or because of the happiness of marrying Richard either way Richard was involved.
I got nearer to Richard and he extended his hand for me to take, I put my hands in his warm large hands, and smiled at him, he grabbed me nearer to himself, and hugged me.
I hugged him back and smiled, we remained like that for a few minutes, then he let go and we pulled apart gently, and kept staring at each other. I took my time checking him out, and he did the same.
He wore a black tuxedo with a black shirt which matched him very well, and he was looking very handsome. He gave me my flowers, I smiled and took the pink tulips from him, I brought it to my nose and smelled them as I closed my eyes.
I opened my eyes and saw two gorgeous eyes staring at me, Richard was acting very weird today, but who says I'm acting normal myself.
He then put his palm on my face and slowly rubbed my left flat cheek, then he brought his lips to my other cheek and kissed me.
We kept enjoying each other's company for a while just like this, without talking. Just smiling and staring at each other.
Richard sighed deeply and smiled at me for the hundredth time that day.
"Let's get married right now" Richard said stupidly, I laughed at him and shook my head.
"what?" Richard asked with a raised eyebrow.
"We'll get married anyways today, silly!" I said and smiled at him.
" I'm afraid someone will take you away from me" Richard whispered, as he bit his lower lip, and his expression was very serious.
My smile faded, I grabbed his hand and put it right between my chest, where my heart was. My heart was pounding like crazy.
" You feel these beats?" I asked, Richard's confused expression was even more confused which made me want to kiss him senseless. So I explained further.
"This is my heartbeat, fast and fully alive because of you. My heart beats like that even when I'm not with you, because I love you" I explained, and Richard's expression softened and he smiled.
" You don't have to be afraid of losing me, because even if I don't be with you, my heart and mind is always with you" I continued, and kissed his cheek.
Richard smiled and put my hands in his hands again.
"You ready?" He asked.
"I'm ready" I answered.
" Dear Kristen, my love, my wife, and my friend. I know I'm not perfect, I'm not your ideal prince charming who sweeps you off of your feet, I'm not as kind as you, as nice as you, but I assure you you're the love of my life, I'll always love you, protect you, support you, and take care of you.
I'll help you achieve your dreams, and I'll help you to be the most successful woman on the whole planet. I'll try and be the friend you need, the husband you need, and the lover you need. I won't be perfect, but I'll do everything that's in my hands to make you the happiest girl alive. I'll be with you in your good days, and I'll happily let you cry on my shoulders in your bad days. And I hope I'll be a good father for our children somebody. Thank you for bringing out the best in me, for making me a better person each and every day. I'm what I am right now because of you, You're first and last girl I'll ever love, I love you to the moon and back." Richard smiled at me just as he finished his vow, and wiped my tears away which were on my cheeks, Richard's vow was so emotional that I couldn't speak until I calmed down.
"My love Richard" I began and stared at Richard's eyes for support, he smiled and nodded at me encouragingly .
"Thank you for being here, with me." I continued " For supporting me, for loving me, for taking care of me. For being with me when nobody was aware of my faults, but you. Thank you for loving me the way you do. I won't promise I'll be the best wife either, but I promise I'll take care of you, I'll love you and cherish you until death falls us apart. I'll do anything in my hands to make you happy. I'll support you and make you the proudest man on the planet. Thank you for showing me what true love is, what it feels like, and how love should be. Without you I don't know what I would have done. I love to wake up every morning next to you, to stare at your gorgeous eyes, and to begin my day with you. I love you share my happiest and saddest moment with you. And I hope I be with you even in the other world. I'm very happy to be here, marrying the most amazing guy, marrying my best friend and my lover, and I'm very lucky to have you as mu husband, I love you very much."
As I finished my vow, Richard pulled out a ring in his pocket and held my left hand in his large warm hand, then he put the ring on my finger, and kissed my palm.
I too have bought him a ring, since the thought of other girls flirting with him drove me crazy, I know I'm jealous but anybody would die to have a husband like my husband.
I put my own gift on his fingers and kissed his cheeks, Richard gave me a peck on my lips and held my left hand.
"Let's go" he said.
"Where?" I asked as I hurried to keep up with him, he was walking too fast, guys and their long legs.
"Somewhere where we can be alone, and have our own small honeymoon, I didn't like the other one" He said.
I smiled and just followed him, we drove our cars back to our house.
I can't believe I'm saying OUR house, this feels like a dream, a very amazing good dream.
I found out later that Richard has booked us two tickets to Paris, just for the night. I was very excited to visit Paris again, the other time was not very fun, I mean sure we had a party and Richard took me sightseeing, but that was when we were friends.
The thought of visiting Paris together with Richard, sent butterflies in my stomach, and I couldn't help but feel lucky, I loved to have our honeymoon in Paris, most of all I loved to have Richard by my side, this time as a lover, and as my husband.
As we arrived home, there was no need for me to pack since Richard had prepared everything, a driver whom I haven't met before drove us to the airport with Richard's car. And yes, Richard had prepared a private jet.
We got into our jet, and just as I got in I gasped at the beauty on the inside of the plane, there were two bedrooms inside, a very fancy small kitchen, and two very comfortable bathroom in each of the bedrooms.
I spent the flight cooking for Richard, Richard was reading a book on the sofa and was looking at me now and then distracting me from cooking, I was about to chop my finger three times already.
I put my dish in the oven, and went to sit by Richard, I rested my head on his shoulders, and he out an arm around me and kept reading his books.
"What are you reading?" I asked, I stared at the book he was holding but I couldn't figure out anything, so I gave up.
"It's a novel" Richard answered casually, and he kissed my forehead.
"About an arranged marriage"
I narrowed my eyes and was wondering if he is telling the truth, is it just a coincidence?
" And?" I asked slowly, still resting my head on his shoulder.
" It's an arranged marriage between a girl and a guy who hate each other, but soon they fall in love, and they have a very interesting love life"
"What happens in the end?"
"I don't know, I haven't finished it. But the girl is pregnant, they're having a baby"
My eyes widened at what he said and I sat abruptly, Richard was confused at my behavior and raised an eyebrow.
"What?" He asked "What happened? Do you have motion sickness?" He asked, totally clueless about what I was going through. My cheeks burnt from embarrassment, and I shook my head.
"Then what is it?" he asked.
"Uh.. Umm.. nothing" I answered dumbly, and bit my lips. Richard's eyes soon widened in realization and he chuckled.
"Do you think I'm forcing you to have a baby " He said teasingly, my cheeks were probably like tomatoes now and Richard was not helping because just as he saw my situation he laughed afterwards.
"I.. Uh.. I have to go to the kitchen" I said and stood up quickly, but Richard grabbed my wrist, and made me sit down beside him.
He held my chin between his thumb and index finger, and made me face him, his expression was very serious.
" I will never ever force you into anything you are not ready to do, I can wait I mean babies are cute but I don't wanna lose you or your trust just because I like babies okay?" He said.626Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFT13ywxzHZ

"Okay" I whispered and gulped because of his intense stare. I smiled at him and was soon back at the kitchen to breathe.
Calm down Kristen, Calm down.
Inhale... Exhale... Inhale.... Exhale...
God it's not working...
I drank some water, and thank god I could breathe normally now.
