Pachelbel’s Canon in D major is playing softly on the background. All are wearing beautiful designer clothes, with their heels clicking as they move around the majestic halls of Manila Cathedral to chat with friends and family whom they haven't seen for a long time.

The pews in the church corridors are adorned with baby’s breath and the aisles are covered with red velvet carpets for today, the world will witness a union between the heirs of Manila's most elite families.

Some say that it was a sly move coming from Hidalgo and Lopez clans since a union between their heirs means a merger that is worth billions will push through and it will create a tougher competition in the hotel business in Southeast Asia.

However, it was not business that made the match possible. Selene and Nathanael are truly in love and nothing shall keep them apart, not even the controversies and rivalry surrounding their kins.

At least that's what they thought.

Nathanael kept on pacing back and forth for he cannot help but feel nervous as he waits for his beautiful bride to walk down the aisles.

"This is it." He thought as he looked at his wristwatch. In twenty minutes he will say his vows to Selene and they will spend the rest of their lives together.

But things didn't go as they planned when the groom's best man came running, causing all of the guests to turn their gazes at him.

"Selene is gone."

Panic ensued from the once perfect venue as reporters swarmed every corner of Manila Cathedral with the blinding flashes coming from their cameras.
