Here is the final chapter :D I hope you guys enjoy it :D
As I stand next to the priest and my best man I can’t help but smile. I have been in love with Gwen for two years now but haven’t told her so because I thought she was dating John from marketing. Who’d of known that he was actually her cousin, I was shocked and thrilled to find out that they haven’t been dating for the past two years.
When I first met her I couldn’t see past her frumpy clothes. During our annual Christmas party I expected Gwen to show up in her usual frumpy clothes but that night she showed up in a red dress that went to the floor with a slit that went up her thigh. She still had her librarian glasses on but she out shone all the women at the party. What made me fall in love with her that night was when James from accounting got a bit tipsy and spilled his drink down one of the secretaries white dress. Gwen pulled her into the bathroom and gave the secretary her dress while Gwen changed into her usual grey shirt and black skirt that she kept stashed in her desk. It was that compassion that caught my attention.
Jonathan my best man looks at me and smiles. “This whole situation has gotten so crazy, first Roxy fakes an engagement to you to make me jealous but I already knew about it and now you fake a wedding to the woman you actually love. What a crazy week.”
I could do no more than smile because the wedding march began to play. My attention is fixed on the doors as they slowly open to reveal the most beautiful woman I have every laid my eyes on. Everyone in attendance gasp as they saw the woman who had eyes only for me as I did her. I vaguely heard Jonathan whistle but I was not paying attention because I could not take my eyes off of Gwen.
Its as if she is glowing in her white gown hugged her slender body.
I notice that she isn’t wearing her glasses and her eyes look so big. She looks into my eyes and gives me a smile that stops my heart. For a second I could not even breathe.
She is breathtaking.
I can’t remember the rest of the ceremony because all I can think about is her. I barely remember saying, “I do.” And her reply as well. Everything became a blur as we were sent away in a limo to the airport for our honeymoon.
“Matthieu? Matthieu are you there? MATTHIEU!” I am jerked back to reality as Gwen yells my name.
“Yes Mrs. Livingston?” I answer half joking and half wishing it were true.
“Very funny.” She said sarcastically as she gets out of the limo, “We really don’t have to go on this honeymoon considering we arn't really married. Plus it’s just a waste of money and I have work to do at the office.”
Gwen disappears to the back of the limo to grab the luggage, I quickly get out and help with the luggage.
“I don’t think it’s a waste of money, in fact even though this whole weekend hasn’t been real. I hope that when we get back to New York we can start becoming real.” I say tentatively.
I start to walk into the airport when I realized that Gwen wasn’t at my side. I turn around to see her frozen in shock.
“What do you mean? Are you asking me out?” She asks as she blushes.
“Yes. To tell you the truth I have been in love with you for quite some time.” I say sheepishly.
As I look at her, her face starts to get redder and tears start to fall.
I panic and say, “I’m sorry I didn’t mean to make you cry, please don’t cry. Please, it breaks my heart to see you sad.”
“No. Im not sad.” She says through tears and sobs. “Since we are being truthful then I have to tell you that I have been in love with you for quite some time as well.”
I stand in shock as she tells me this. I can’t believe that almost all of my dreams are coming true.
Before either of us can say anything my phone rings.
“Hello?” I answer.
“Matthieu this is Alex, we have a problem.”
“What do you mean? What’s wrong?” I ask worriedly.
“I left the marriage license on my desk and my assistant grabbed it along with the other marriage licenses and filed them.”
Realization dawns on me and in truth I am happy that now all of my dreams have come true but now I need to know what Gwen thinks of this.
“Thanks Alex, talk to you soon.” I say as I hang up.
I look at Gwen and say, “Well it looks like we have no choice, and we have to go on this honeymoon.”
“What do you mean we have to?” Gwen asks puzzled.
“Let’s just say that Alex accidently married us for real.”
“What?!” She says shocked.
“I know this is supposed to be fake but I really would love staying married to you; that is only if you want this. I will not force this marriage on you; if you do not want to marry me yet then we can get an annulment and possibly try again later.” I suggest.
I watch as she debates the outcome and slowly a smile brightens her face. “We can get a divorce at anytime correct?”
Slowly understanding I smile and say, “Yes.”
“Then why not stay like this for a while longer?” she asks smiling up at me.
“Sounds perfect, now let’s board this plane to the Caribbean.” I say wraping one arm around her as we walk toward our plane. “I’m glad you proposed first.”
