“This is amazing.” Jean spoke up, out of the blues. Shandell agreed with her best friend. “Tell me about it.” She took a sip of her champagne as she looked around the hall. The sight before her was almost angelic. The celestial theme was a good idea. “Have you told him?” Jean asked. Shandell rolled her eyes, already knowing what she was talking about. “Really Jean?” You’re doing this here?”
“Shandell, you can’t hide secretes of your past. Secretes break relationships.” Shandell looked around before dragging her to the corner. “Shut up.” She warned through clenched teeth. Jean dragged her hand back. “You know I’m right.” She whispered back. Shandell rolled her eyes. It was times like this that made her wonder why she was still friends with her. “You think it’s easy to walk up to Justin and just………tell him?”
“Tell me what?” Justin asked, suddenly making an appearance. “Shandell shot Jean a hard glare. “That you’re the most amazing person in the world.” She said as she slowly faced him with a wide smile on her face. She sighed internally, pleased what she said made sense. She walked into his embrace and landed a long passionate peck on his lips. Now, they faced Jean. Justin with an honest smile and Shandell with a forced one all at Jean.
“Again, I’m so happy for you both.” Jean admitted. “Thanks. I feel like the luckiest man on earth.” Jean nodded. “Justin can you get me another one?” She wagged the empty flute before him. “I finished this one.” He took it and excused himself. Once they were alone she faced her friend. “I won’t allow you ruin anything for me, especially on my wedding day I won’t tell him and neither will you.” She walked two feet in front of Jean before continuing. “Got it?” Jean looked like she was contemplating the idea for a minute. She shrugged. “Whatever.” Was her response.
A smile spread across Shandell’s face. She reached out for Jean’s and gave it a gentle squeeze. “Good. Now continue being my pretty bridesmaid and help me turn up.” Jean smiled at her friend’s silliness. She didn’t quite agree with her friend’s decision but she was right. It was her wedding and she deserved to enjoy it to the fullest.
On Justin’s way back to his wife, he met his best friend and best man, George, who tried to stop him for conversation. “I’ll be right………… He tried excusing himself but George was not having it. “Are you serious?” He asked, not even making an effort to show the shock in his voice. “It hasn’t even been twenty-four hours and you’re acting all tied down and gone into good puppy mode.” He mocked. Justin rolled his eyes. He wasn’t even going to argue with him. He allowed him take one of the flute from his hand.
“Now this,” George pointed at the drink in his hand. “Is just plain and boring.” He briefly cocked his head to the side, signaling for Justin to follow him. They made it to the corner of the hall, behind a round table. George searched in his coat pocket, secretly took out a mini alcohol flask and showed to Justin. He couldn’t help but smile as he watched his friend empty the content of the flask in both their glasses. George handed one to him. “And now,” he raised his flute up for a toast. “To the beginning of your days as a pet to the woman you chose.” He joked. “Fuck you.” Justin replied, mirroring George’s actions. They sipped their drinks and sighed in pleasure. The extra alcohol was most definitely a spectacular idea.
“Did you guys talk?” George asked his friend. Justin took another sip of his drink before he spoke. “I thought against it.” “What?” George wiped his face with his palms before continuing. “I thought we already discussed this?”
“And I thought I already told you no. She doesn’t need to know anything other than what I already told her.” George rolled his eyes. He expected those exact words from him. “It’s not fair to her. Trust me even if what you tell her hurts her, it won’t be as painful as she finding out from somewhere else. She……” “George. George.” Justin cut him off. “Not here. I don’t want to tell her and let’s keep it at that. The only people that know of this is you and I. If neither of us tell her she’ll never know right?” George looked away for a second, then back at him. “Sure.” Justin nodded, happy at least that was out of the way, again.
“Hey!” Shandell chirped in. She moved to her husband and attached her arm to his. “I’m sorry but I need to borrow him for a second.” She dragged her husband behind her. They stopped in the middle of the hall. “Please tell me who invited Lauren.” She cocked her head to the direction of Lauren. Justin looked behind her at the woman in question. He laughed. “She came as Derrick’s date.” Shandell’s scowl deepened. She wasn’t a huge fan of the lady in question and that was more than fine with her. It was a mutual feeling. “She’s not that bad.” Shandell’s eyes widened at her husband’s words. “Not that bad? She’s complaining about everything. Oh the chicken is too spicy. Oh this champagne does not taste expensive enough.” She mocked, imitating Lauren’s behavior.
Justin burst out in a fit of laughter. He made a good choice in picking a wife. With her around there would never be a dull moment. He turned her to him. “Ignore her. She’s just jealous of you.” Shandell raised an eyebrow. She wanted to play along. “Really?” she wrapped her arms around his neck. “Well what exactly should she be jealous of.” Justin shrugged and wrapped his hands around his wife’s waist. “Maybe it’s because you’re married to the most handsome man in the world.” She laughed at his choice of words. “Really?” He nodded in response to her question. She pulled him closer to her so the lips were almost touching. “Maybe.” She closed the thin space between their lips.
“Hmmhmm.” The clearing of someone’s throat cut their little make out section short. With a final peck, they faced the culprit and soon as they did Shandell released Justin’s hand in sudden shock. With worry in his eyes, Justin asked. “Are you okay?” She forced a smile and nodded. “Of course. I was just…shocked to see Sean here.” She took back his hand and faced the man before them. It was now Justin’s turn to raise a brow. “You know each other?” He asked her. Shandell’s heart rate increased. Her head snapped his direction but before she could respond Sean spoke. “Yes.” Once again, her attention was on him with wide, almost pleading eyes. “She was the event planner at my cousin’s birthday party.” He continued with a smirk plastered on his face.
“Really?” Justin asked no one in particular. “Yeah.” Shandell licked her suddenly dried lips. “Long, long ago.” She added.
Sean had that annoying smile on his face again. He knew she was frightened and shocked by his presence. “Congratulations to you both.”
“Thanks.” Justin replied while Shandell just maintained her forced smile.
“You look amazing.” Sean complimented Shandell. She swallowed hard and looked at her husband then back at him. “Sure _ I mean thanks.” She replied nervously. His smile broadened as her realized how uncomfortable he was making her. Shandell had to think fast before their little took another turn. She knew what he was playing at and honestly she didn’t want to wait till it reached another level.
Luckily for her, George came over and said some business colleagues wanted to take pictures with Justin. The unfortunate part of that was when he left, she was alone with him. She tried leaving but he blocked her path. She looked around her, praying no one was paying attention to them. “You thought you could hide from me?” There was this mockery in his voice.
“Leave me alone.” Shandell tried walking past him but once again he blocked a path. He heard her inhale sharply. “I have eyes everywhere beauty. Watch your back.” He threatened and walked off, leaving her heart still thumbing, ready to jump out.
They made their way through their family and friends, both having the biggest smiles on their faces which only heightened as the tulips where thrown at them. “Aaaaaagh!” Marleen, Shandell’s mother screeched as she pulled her into a tight hug. “I’m so proud of you.” She sobbed. They looked into each other’s eyes. “Thanks mama.” She released her mother and moved to her friend whiles Justin walked to their car. “I packed everything you’ll need.” Jean said, shrugging her a bit. Shandell almost rolled her eyes at her friend’s revelation. She knew Jean had a crazy mind and was a bit scared of what she had packed.
Justin honked the horn at his wife for her to hurry. It was a long drive to their location and he really needed them to get there before it was too late. Shandell got ready to run to the car.
“Call me when you get there!” Jean hollered as Shandell run towards the awaiting car. She shared a smile with Justin when she made it in the car. He took her hand and gave it a tight reassuring smile as he sparked the car. She waved their audience as he drove off.
Things felt right for Shandell at the moment. She had waited a long time for this and finally, she was Mrs. Grayson. It felt even better when she said it out loud. Her head turned to Justin when she felt him gently squeeze her hand. His eyes glittered in excitement and love when they met hers. She returned his smile and looked back out the window. She hadn’t felt such happiness in her life and honestly she like it. She allowed the lights of the city and soft music playing in the car send her to sleep, allowing her to dream of how she wanted her marriage life to be.
Justin smiled as he briefly looked at his sleeping wife. She had her head on the window. This was what he wanted, with the woman he loved. He wasn’t going to let anything or anyone come between them. She had done a lot to help him and he wasn’t willing to let such help and affection go.
About forty minutes later, they made it to their destination. He got out of the car, to her side and carried her out. He handed the keys to the valet that waited for him and continued to carry his sleeping beauty into the ship _ ’Amore. ’It was part of the surprise he had for their honeymoon. He was going to take her on a cruise which was headed to Hawaii. They’ll spend about a week there then they’ll move to his private island. She had to love it.
He was welcomed by soft, low music. He allowed an awaiting help lead him to their suite, completely ignoring everybody. Finally, they arrived. He went straight to their master bedroom, where he laid his wife. He felt a bit bummed that she was sleeping. He had waited all two years of their dating period to have her and now he had to wait? Now he wasn’t one to go by the old sayings and wait till after marriage before having his women _ or anyone he desired, but it was different with Shandell. She wasn’t exactly a virgin herself after giving her virginity to her high school sweetheart back in high school but she said it was a mistake and wanted to give herself only to her husband the next time and he respected her decision. He loved her too much not to.
The tired man walked to the door upon hearing a knock and opened it. It was the help that directed him to them their suite together with two others. They had their luggage. Justin opened the door a bit more to allow them in. He waited at the same sport as they took it into their room and came back.
They knew who he was and they knew it. They expected a huge tip from one of the youngest billionaires in the world and once again, he knew it. He took out his wallet and took out a couple of dollars for them to share. He unbuttoned his shirt as he reentered they room where his wife lay. He decided to search for something more comfortable for her to sleep in for. Imagine his shock when he opened one of her bags and pulled out a pretty revealing lingerie. Actually that was what the bag was filled with. That and a couple of ‘toys.’ He smirked to himself as the thought of his angle being naughty for him filled his mind. He shook the tempting images away. He took out a less revealing one and changed her into it. He took a cold shower and joined in bed.
Although the night didn’t end like he planned it was okay. He had his wife in his arms. He pulled her closer so her back was on his front. He inhaled her neck and smiled as a moan escaped from her. He felt his member twitch a bit. Tonight he gave fatigue the victory over his pleasure but tomorrow was his. Tomorrow she was his.
