“When are you getting married?”
“I don’t know.”
“Then why are you planning your honeymoon right now?”
I looked up at Alice and away from the brochures, giving her a flat look. I couldn't just look at places I wanted to go? I was just planning ahead... It was a good thing to plan ahead, wasn't it? I didn't want to wait two weeks before the wedding and just randomly pick one.
I wanted everything to be absolutely perfect.
No matter what.
I didn’t even know why I was looking through brochures for a place for our honeymoon, since we didn’t even have a day that we were going to get married yet. I just liked being prepared, I guess.
“Well, River said that I would get to pick where we get to go,” I told her, flipping over so that I was now lying on my back instead of my stomach. I held the brochures in the air, still flipping through them. “I’m not sure where I wasn’t to go, though…”
“You get to pick where you guys get to go, but then he’s paying? You’re one lucky bitch, Delilah,” Alice told me, sounding amused.
I looked up to see that she was smirking, which didn’t really surprise me very much, and I only shook my head. “I don’t have any money, but River does. Even if I tried to pay for it, he wouldn’t let me.”
“Where do you want to go, anyway?” Alice now asked, actually sounding very interested. I knew that she wanted to help me, even though she tried her best to seem like she didn't, and I wasn't about to stop her.
“I’m not sure yet,” I answered truthfully, still flipping through the brochures. “My number one place right now is Paris, but I don’t want to go anywhere really expensive. But even though River can speak French, he can speak about every other freaking language, too. Well, not really, but you get what I mean…”
“I get what you mean.”
“Paris is definitely my number one choice,” I repeated, nodding as I did so. “I know a little French, since River used to tutor me and everything, but River can speak it fluently. He’d know what to do and say, and he would know what places to take me to and what restaurants to eat at…”
“Yeah, like you guys would even leave the hotel room.”
“What?” she asked, smiling innocently at me. But innocent was definitely the last thing that she was, no matter what she said otherwise. “I’m just telling you the truth. Paris is the city of romance, is it not? Maybe you guys would go outside once in a while, but I highly doubt it. If River had his way, you’d be handcuffed to the bed and--”
I clasped my hands over my ears, not wanting to hear anymore of what she had to say. “Okay, I’d like to stop hearing about my supposed sex life please.”
Alice smirked at me, crossing her arms over her chest as she leaned against my desk. I could tell she was amused, but I didn’t really blame her. I would have been amused if I was in her place, too. I was going to have to tease her about Rex one of these days…
That would be the day. There was no way I would have the guts to actually do that, which sucked. Alice and Marnie had no problem talking about sex with each other, and I knew that River, Seth, and Rex didn't have a problem because they were guys. I felt so out of the loop and stupid...
One day I would tease her about Rex. I would do it even if it killed me.
And it might just do so.
