Michael slowly stood up, taking several deep breathes before finally walking up to the front of the ceremony. Everyone stared, wondering what the former boyfriend would say. When Michael got to the stand, his eyes immediately looked for the boys and your parents, as they were the only ones to keep him calm. Ashton gave him assuring smile, then Michael started his speech.
"I'm not going to stand up here and lie to you, saying Y/N was perfect and happy all the time, because she was no where fucking close. I've known her for about 4 years now, dating for 2, and I've seen her so depressed because of half the people in this room, pretending to be her friend." Michael saw many people gasp, not expecting that to come out of his mouth. "I don't know how many times she would come home and tell me that she just wanted to end it, but she would always listen to me and not do it, because I knew she would regret it."
He looked around, catching eyes with your parents, your mom sobbing into your fathers shoulder, him whispering soothing things into her ear. "The last few weeks were the best, she was getting better, or so I thought so. We went out a lot more, stayed up talking instead of her falling asleep at 9. But inside, she was waiting for sadness to kill her. But I guess she got impatient and did it herself." Michael was choking up, trying to hide the cries from her parents. "God dammit Y/N. Why did you have to be so selfish? Why didn't you just stay one more night so I could've proposed to you? Now you'll never get the family we always talked about having, about the 7 kids that we were going to have." Michael was sobbing by then. Luke finally went up and helped him to his seat.
But when he looked around the crowd, to see everyone bawling, he saw you in the back corner, staring at him with loving eyes and mouthing that it was okay to move on, but when he blinked, you were gone.
