At The O’Brien’s house. MIDNIGHT
Martha, came and knocked on Ruth’s room door, “May, I come in?”
Ruth unlocked the door.
“Sorry to interrupt you guys. But the party is about to start.” Martha said.
“Party?” Ruth asked.
“Yeah, a midnight party with all our closed relatives. You both just change into some kind of part wear and be there in ten minutes. Bye,” Saying this Martha left in a hurry.
“You looked gorgeous today in the wedding gown,” Leandro said with a smile.
“Is it? So, what would you say if I wear any other dress rather than the gown?” Ruth asked.
“The same, dear,” Leandro said.
Just then Someone knocked on the door.
“Coming,” Said Ruth, opening the door.
It was Susanne, “Sorry, I know I might have disturbed you both.”
“What is it, Suse?” Ruth asked.
Susanne handed over a package, “I came to bring you guys, the dress for the midnight party.”
“Is the party started yet?” Leandro asked.
“Not, without you two,” Susanne smiled at Leandro. “Guys please make it fast. Okay, I swear we won’t disturb you from tomorrow onwards unnecessarily.”
“Okay,” Ruth said.
Ruth was wearing a pink trumpet gown for the midnight party, while Leandro was in a suit.
On seeing the Bride and Groom coming, Martha said, “Please make way for the newlywed.”
Everyone stood and clapped for the couple.
They both came and took their seats.
“I welcome all the dearest cousins and our family members of the Bride and Groom to the midnight party.” Said Mariya, Leandro’s first cousin. “Now we call upon the Bride and the Groom to call and introduce their family members to everyone. Ladies first.” She said
Ruth stood from her chair, “First of all, I would like to call my parents.”
“Don’t they have a name?” Asked Susanne.
“Yeah, they do. Jackson and Elizabeth.”
Jackson and Elizabeth approached Ruth.
“Then, I would like to call my big brother, Lorenzo,”
Lorenzo came and hugged Ruth, “Happy Married life, Ruth.”
“It was already over in the morning, and it is midnight, now,” Ruth told Lorenzo jokingly.
“Then, I would love to call upon the Joanna - Martha combination, and Drake - Susanne combination,” Ruth said.
Everyone laughed on hearing the combinations.
The four approached her.
Joanna hugged Ruth “Combination?” She asked in a half angry and half-joking manner while hugging her.
“Yep,” Ruth replied with a smile.
Joanna said nothing but beamed.
“And, last but not least, I call my cute little Henzel.”
Henzel came and stood near Lorenzo.
“Now, I call upon Leandro.” Said Mariya.
Leandro said, “First of all, I call upon my blood. My little sister, Bridgette.”
Bridgette came and stood near Leandro.
“Then my dearest parents, James Austin and Helen Austin.” They both approached Leandro, as he called them.
