Iwould not sleep as I kept thinking to myself.I stayed at our place that chilly night as I heard the chime go offfrom my handset. It was him, the man I would be married to, thefollowing day. “Goodnight my princess” and the butterfliesreturned with my reply “Goodnight,my prince.” I lay on the mat, as the bridesmaid Janet and my friendwere fast asleep next to me in the cold white sheets. Memories beganto run in my restlessmind.
Thechimes ring again from my phone.As I start to wake up, my eyes are flickering around until thatfeeling hits me to realize that it is September 4. The day is finallyhere. Waiting for this memorable day is every girl’s dream. It isevery girl’s dream that when they grow up, they want to be in thatwhite gown with that handsome man, whom they will cohabitate with,for all the days of their lives. “Aww my God!!! Itis mywedding day”, I keep repeating it to myself.

Being so lost in his eyes makes me forget the place we areuntil Jane asks John if he would take me forever, and his soft voicesays, “I do.”It makes my mind jump, and my heart races with joy. She then asks methe same question. I bite my lip and says, “Aww yes, I do.”
