CHAPTER 5- WEDDING
November 15, 2003 (More than one month later)
The Island of Santorini, Greece
“You look so beautiful, Cassia.” Cassia’s best friend, Anna, told her.
Cassia smiled at her friend and squeezed her hand. It was truly a good thing that her friend was here for her nerves were eating her alive. Here she was on her room, in all her wedding finery, just waiting for the moment to come.
“Come on, do a twirl for me, my friend. I want this to stay in my memory forever.” Anna pleaded.
“Sure. By the way, thanks for being here! I don’t know what I’ll do without you.” Cassia said. And with those words, her eyes started to fill with tears.
“Oops! No! Don’t cry. You’ll ruin your perfect make-up. And it’s nothing! You paid for all of my expenses! And I won’t let the opportunity to travel pass me by. I’ll never earn the fare here in meagre job back at home. And I’m really enjoying it here so far! So stop going all sentimental on me, alright?” Anna chastised.
Cassia laughed and wiped away her tears with a tissue before it could fall and ruin her make-up. Then, she slowly stood up and did a twirl for her best friend who has been with her since her parents died. They were once fostered together and stayed friends ever since.
Cassia wore a cream-colored wedding gown which was designed by one of the top designers in the world. And she fell in love with it the moment she first set eyes upon it. The beading in and the design in the bodice was very intricate. Also, diamonds were embedded in the bodice and Cassia did not even want to think about how much the bodice alone cost. The skirt of the gown fit her hips snugly and then flared out into a skirt with a very long train.
She twirled for her friend and they both laughed when she managed not to fall. Anna’s breath caught and this time it was she who had tears in her eyes. “You really look so beautiful. I never thought I’d see you like this.” Anna said as she wiped away the tears that threatened to fall.
“Thank you, Anna.” Cassia smiled as she hugged her friend tightly.
“Wait! We might wrinkle your gown!” Anna laughed.
“This is an expensive gown. I don’t think it would get wrinkled that easily.” Cassia teased.
“True.” He friend agreed.
Cassia sat on the chaise once more and willed the time to pass away so that her wedding and her life with Nikos could already start.
“So... Tell me about this Nikos guy that you are marrying. What’s he like? Every time I see him he’s polite and all. And not to mention extremely hot! But... I don’t know Cass... He seems cold to me. There’s something about him I can’t quite fathom.” Anna said thoughtfully.
♫♫♫ Oh I really should have known
By the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes
Your casual goodbyes
By the chill in your embrace
The expression on your face
That told me...
Maybe you might have?
Some advice to give...
On how to be insensitive ♫♫♫
The song played on the radio and a smile came to Cassia’s lips.
“What’s that smile for?”
“You know that’s the song that played when we first met. And it’s that song that we first danced to... It’s a really memorable song for us...”
“Ooookay.” Anna replied with a sceptical glare.
Cassia tilted her head to the side and thought about her friend’s observation of her fiancé. During the past month after her engagement, she went to all her social obligations with Nikos. They also went together to the places and events for the preparations for their wedding.
Nikos was always on time. He was never late, he acted like a perfect gentleman. There was also this one time when they were about to cross the street and Cassia wasn’t looking. She almost got run over by a speeding car but Nikos was able to pull her to safety. And after that, Nikos has shouted at the driver until his voice was hoarse.
