Setting: St. James's Roman Catholic Church
I was getting married. I, Riley Anne McGranahan was going to be Riley Anne Prewett. In a matter of hours. My heart was going so fast, it was a marvel I hadn't fainted already. And I was so nervous. So incredibly nervous, and I had no idea why, no reason to be. Perhaps it was just strange to me, being this blissfully happy.
I was standing in a room outside of the chapel. Well, I think pacing was the more correct verb. I'd never been so antsy. Thank God I wasn't alone. Lily, Acacia and Rita were here with me. They all looked so beautiful. And I'd never worn something as pretty as the dress I was wearing now. Was this really happening? I couldn't believe it. I really couldn't.
Abime and Nick were here as well, of course. If it weren't for the two of them and my bridesmaids, I'd have gone to pieces already. I stopped by the mirror, fiddling with my dress and slowly turned to face them, after a moment. "I guess this is it," I said quietly, smiling at them all and hoping I wasn't shaking too visibly.
So, so incredibly happy.
