“Tek organised this?” I sneaked a peak out of the temporary gazebo we’d put up while mum and Zoe fixed my dress.
“He picked the venue and the decor, the guy’s got good taste! I mean a beach, with the arch at the end of a pier? These wedding photos will be gorgeous!” Dad poked his head around the corner of the door and raised an eyebrow at my outfit,
“Bit revealing don’t you think?”
“Mortimer leave the poor girl alone! Its her wedding day, you’re not selling her away to a brothel so stop acting like you are!”
“Scarlett, all I’m saying is the dress is a bit low cut, doesn’t leave much to the imagination does it?”
“Bearing in mind they will be getting married in 20 minutes and producing children I don’t think she needs to leave much to the imagination! Tek’s lovely, you just need to see that not every guy is out to hurt Jasmyn.”
“Too darn nice.”
“Okay honey, well you just go wait outside while we finish Jasmyn’s hair.” Dad grumbled but eventually stood outside where we could hear him muttering about Tek.
Zoe burst into the room grinning wildly, her hair sticking up at odd angles,
“He’s under the arch, and looking quite literally delicious.” Mum swatted at Zoe,
“Well go find your own one, that ones taken!” She then attempted to smooth Zoe’s hair but it became obvious that Zoe’s hair was not going to co-operate this time. We walked outside and dad took my arm, slowly walking me towards the pier, dear god I had to walk all that way too?
“Not too late to pull out, fake falling over and breaking your leg!”
“Dad.. the only one who is going to be breaking their leg is you! Now shhh!”
“Don’t think much of the boy’s seating taste. What kind of peasants stand to watch a wedding?”
“Its a tradition in Roxane’s family, he wanted to honor them.”
Eventually after what seemed like the world’s longest walk, my hands were placed in Tek’s and our wedding began,
The second “You may now kiss the bride” were spoken, Tek pulled me into his arms and kissed me as if my father wasn’t standing right beside him, in fact I doubt he cared.
“Can’t see why he doesn’t change his name to Tempest, I did.” Dad whispered to mum as I cut the cake,
“Mortimer, he added Tempest on and she added Logan to her name. It doesn’t change the fact they are married. Now stop being so goddamn grumpy and smile!”
“That bloody dress will be the death of me. Far too revealing.”
“Mortimer, I swear if you don’t shut up I’m going to push you off this pier.” I sneaked a glance at Tek to make sure they hadn’t offended him and he looked like he was about to burst out laughing at my parent’s ‘disagreement’.
“Ready to do the fireworks?”
“You bought fireworks??” Tek looked at his feet,
“Why not? Pretty awesome way to announce marriage!”
