I doubt anyone will read this but its worth a try!!!!
My sister Patricia was getting up on her special day. She was getting married to a very good guy who loved her with all his might. She looked at me and her face scrunched and started to sob. She hugged me.
"Oh sister how much I will miss you!!! Even though you're such a brat!!" she said.
"Thanks Patricia." I said but the tears got to me and I hugged her tight. We did share a room and our whole childhood, although we constantly fought, we were best friends and now she was leaving!
Her dress was beautiful. White with a simple design embroidered at the waist.
The hair designer came in and I had my own hair done before her.
"You and your camera Blair!" she said smiling as I took a picture of her. I actually wanted to travel the world taking pictures of everything. A professional photographer but my parents weren't so enthusiastic as I was because it wasn't something "successful". But I didn't want to be a lawyer like my parents ad sister. It was...not my thing.
"Blair???" my sister said. I snapped back to reality. "Can you help me put my dress one?"
I nodded hanging my camera strap on my neck. When we finished putting on her dress and make-up she looked like a princess. I kept taking pictures and my sister never got annoyed. .
"What are you going to wear.?" she asked and I frowned. Three months ago I planned to go with Derek my ex-boyfriend to buy a dress but it was chaos. We got into a fight. The fight was stupidly about marriage. I remember him saying
"Imagine us? When we're in front of the altar waiting to say I Do to each other." he had grabbed me by the waist.
"If you ever ask me?" I put on a pout face.
"I will." he kneeled and took out a ring from his pocket.
"What the f-" I starred at him.
"Blair?" he said. "Will you....."
"No!" I nearly screamed. He looked confused.
"Blair! Don't you love me?" he asked angrily.
"I....do" but I hesitated too much. My voice was shaky.
"Then what? Why not marry me?" he asked getting up.
"Derek, we're young and we haven't gotten out of school and we ....don't know if we are going to last.
"But Blair we will finish school and age is what least matters. And...we will last if you want." he said looking into my eyes pleading. "Unless ..."
"Why can't we just....be a couple?" I asked..
"Is it someone else?" he asked angrily.
"Don't accuse me like that! I spend half my time with you the rest of the time I go to work and I go to school!" I said.
"Oh so you can accuse me for that but I can't?" he said. " You know what it's over. I'm done wasting my time with you." ........
He had screamed to me in public and I ran away throwing the money he had given me for the dress on the ground.
"Oh that's right." Patricia remembered me crying in the night. "No worries I bought you a dress." the dress was a lovely red and it was too beautiful for me.
I smiled and went into the bathroom happily dressing for my sister's big day.
I wasn't going to spoil a night a partying for Derek.
I heard the magic words coming out of my sister's words. I captured them as they had payed me to be their photographer.
"You may now kiss the bride." the father said. I captured then sweetly kissing and I smiled.
"Oh Blair I will hate to see you go of to a young man one day too." my mom said.
"Mom I'm just eighteen and what happened with Derek shows me a great lesson." I say.
"What darling?" she asked wiping the tears from her eyes.
"I should get married at fifty." I joked.
"Not fifty! But...don't get married to young it will cause ....not problems but worries at an age you should be living your life." she said.
"I will." I assured her. My sister was twenty-five, to young for my opinion.
"Oh how I wish you would but.... You won't." she said with such assurance.
I took more photographs and I had my father take one with my sister her husband and I.
We headed to the reception where the catering people had set up the delicious food Patricia and Martin picked. The music was blaring already and I took my camera out clicking away. As the night went away it was time for Patricia and Martin to have their first dance as newlyweds.
A slow song they wrapped their arms together. I took pictures and I actually teared up a bit. They finished and wage party continued. I headed to the buffet table and my eyed caught a plate of untouched mini shrimp. You see shrimp was my favorite seafood. Their was a sauce beside it and haven't eaten in all day besides cookies and coffee I gobbled away.
