It was the night before Tony's wedding and we decided to have some fun. Except the problem with fun comes consequences.
Adrian, Luke and I took him to a strip club. For me it was fine considering I have no interest in women. We all had fun while watching the girls dance and drinking.
Luke was our DD for the night. As the night went on and my pining for Cole happened, the drinks went down too easily. After that, I'm not sure what happened. Everything became hazy. I just had a feeling tonight would change my life forever.
I don't know exactly what happened at the strip club but Morris apparently disappeared. Tony and I were hammered with Luke taking us home.
Where the hell did Morris go?
Once we got back to Morris's place, Luke made sure we were situated then left. We were on the couch when we heard moaning coming from Morris's bedroom.
"Well, at least now he can get out of that funk, he's been in," I said to Tony.
"I wonder who the lucky guy is," Tony asked
I shrugged before passing out. Morris is getting lucky and sleep sounded good.
The next morning, I woke up feeling like hell. This is going to be fun. I got up and Tony handed me a cup of coffee. I took it and grabbed some aspirin.
"Do you remember last night at all," Tony asked me.
"Nope," I said taking a sip.
"Well, we better wake Morris," he said.
"I got it," I said as I got up from my seat. I went to Morris's room, opened the door and dropped my cup as my eyes widened.
He looked at me.
"Please tell me you're not naked," I said to him.
"Dude, what the hell happened last night," he asked me as Tony made his way to the door.
"Morris, why are you naked," Tony asked him.
"How the hell should I know," he said incredulously.
"Wait, we heard moaning last night," I said to them then it hit us. Morris got lucky last night. Better him than us.
I decided to go take a shower as Tony looked at him and Morris placed a pillow over his face.
I can't believe I had sex with a random stranger last night. I can't believe I can't remember. God what has my life become and now I get to see Cole. Ugh.
We got ready and made our way to the church. Let's just get this over so I can see what a miserable failure I've become.
We took our spot at the from along with Luke. Then the bridal party came out and there he was. Damn. My heart dropped.
He looked polish but he still had the tats that I loved so much. At that moment I was as much as in love with him as I was that day in the coffee shop.
Damn, Wade looked amazing. He didn't have that boyish look to him anymore. He had matured in features and had a beard which was fucking hot.
As we walked up to the alter, I couldn't take my eyes off of him. I didn't think my feelings would still remain but they did and I was even more in love with him if not more since that day in the coffee shop.
My heart still only beat for him.
Everyone made their way to the front and I stood there waiting as the music started. We played Somewhere Over The Rainbow. It was fitting.
Then I saw her as my breath caught in my throat. She was beautiful. She looked her arm around Colton's arm as he escorted her to me.
I stood there and I could not stop smiling. Once they reached the front, he placed her hand into mine. I interlocked our fingers as we turned to the minister.
As the minister performed our ceremony, all I could think was I was lucky. I needed something for my college application. I never imagined it would lead me to my wife. I am so glad that happened.
As the minister pronounced us husband and wife, I pulled her to me and kissed her. People clapped and I pressed my forehead against hers, "I love you Mrs. Grasso."
"I love you more Mr. Grasso," she smiled. I smiled. We came so far and here we are.
I slid my hand into hers and we left the alter as people cheered and clapped. This day could not be more perfect. Now onto the wedding reception then the honeymoon.
We all went to the reception hall. Once we were settled, the best man and maid of honor gave their speeches. I sat there and I looked at Wade who was smiling. Damn I missed his smile.
Then came the food. Of course, we made sure there was chicken nuggets. Then the cake followed by the dance.
I was happy for Rain and Antonio. They deserve to be happy. Eventually everyone danced. I stood there and looked at Wade who was sitting at the table. Screw it.
I walked over and tapped him on the shoulder. He looked up at me, "dance with me," I said holding out my hand. He hesitated then took it. I led him onto the dance floor.
As we danced, I looked at him, "you look good."
"So do you," he told me. "Cole....."
"I'm still in love with you," I blurted out.
He stopped and stared at me.
"I knew it," Rain yelled. We looked at her. "Carry on."
I shook my head and chuckled as did Wade. I turned back to him, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to break your heart. Because my heart has been broken." He cut me off by crashing his lips into mine. Damn, I missed his lips.
He pulled back, "you were sayin?"
"It's not important," I smiled as we kissed again. This felt right. I missed Wade so damn much. I had never been with anyone since him. My heart ached only for him.
After the wedding, I took him home. When we got to his building, I walked him to his door. He opened it and turned to me. I leaned in and gave him a kiss. I pulled back and looked at him. He looked at me.
"Fuck it," I said as I pulled him to me as I crashed my lips into his. We ended up in his apartment, closing the door behind us. Never again was I ever going to forgo my happiness. Not now, not ever.
Yeah, we had a lot of lost time to make up for.
Yep, I have my ear plugs in. Letting the screaming commence.
Next chapter you're going to see what transpired the night before the wedding.
Get ready because four chapters remain.
