The gentle kisses, the love, the feelings that could never be. We were unaware of the marriage our parents were having, and it was just the two of us.
"We are gathered here today"
Your soft chocolate eyes had watched me since we met, I was so new, so foreign. The small town hadn't seen a new family in so long.
"To create the sacred bond"
I have to admit, I never expected my first time to be so... perfect.
And when it was over, we laid in the grass by your truck, just looking up at the stars.
"A bond only broken, by death"
The next morning was when chaos broke out, we came home and hid out in the barn until everyone woke up, talking about anything and yet nothing at the same time.
Your Dad came out, asking if he could talk to us, a bright smile on his face. He told us then, and I nearly puked. We both smiled, and congratulations were given.
When he left, we agreed to tell no one about what we had done, and from there everything got awkward.
"Between Mrs. Catheryn McAdry and Mr. Brian Shepard"
The preacher's words shattered the dreams, and looking over at you, I feel tears coming to my eyes.
The "I dos" were exchanged, people celebrated, everything was perfect, and the reception came quickly. We watched them dance, together, so unaware of what had happened.
My heart broke more with every kiss, every beat of the music. And then I ran, ran from there to the place we had shared, dropping to my knees, and cried. Cried for what felt like forever. My makeup smeared, and my heart broken, I went back to the house, and hiding in the barn, you found me and held me close, whispering that we would always have that night, regardless of everything else.
