I can't believe the day has finally come. Here I am ready to get married to my beloved fiance. We've been together since high school. I know, cliché, right? We've been friends first, me, Davis and Katy were inseparable. Back then, he has already been friends with Katy. I got mixed with them right after I met them.
"You're so beautiful Tory, I can't believe you're getting married today. So tell me how does it feel to become Mrs. Davis Thompson?" Judy, my other bridesmaid, ask me as she interrupted my thoughts.
I'm so happy she's here to help me prepare myself. I don't understand why Katy isn't here yet. She was the one who was supposed to do so. It's the first time she's late since I know her.
"I'm so happy, I can't believe it," I answer her as I look at the clock above me. Oh boy, in less than an hour, I will become Mrs. Davis Thompson. I can't believe it. I'm so nervous right now. Breathe, breathe, breathe.
Then the door opens. Finally, she's here. "Katy, you're late and your not ready, but what's going on?" I ask her surprisingly.
"Yeah, I get right into that. I just have to do something first. I'll be back in a jiffy."
What, be back in a jiffy and what was that look she was giving me? I look at Judy and she has the same question on her face as I do.
The door opens again and I think it's Katy but I'm wrong, it's my mother. "Here you go, honey, the glass of water you've asked me. I put a straw so you won't mess up your makeup."
"Thank you, mother. I needed that." I drink all the water, sipping on the straw.
"I just saw Katy go to see Davis, wasn't she supposed to be here helping you get ready?"
"That's weird, I'll go and see what's going on. In less than an hour, I'm getting married."
"Wait, if the groom sees the bride before the wedding, is bad luck." My mother reminded me.
True, I didn't think of that. "It's me and Davis, I'm sure we will be fine," I say as I step out of the room.
On my way over there I don't see anyone, they must be all seated while waiting for our wedding to begin. I can't believe I'm getting married today. Okay, focus on what matters for now and that is to find them and see what's going on.
Before I knock, I notice that the door isn't closed properly and before me I see Davis and Katy talking. I was about to ask them what's going on and why it can't wait after the wedding.
The unthinkable is happening before my eyes. They start kissing like it's something normal for them to do and they didn't even notice me looking at them.
"Da-Davis, how could you?" I start to cry. "Katy, you're my best friend, how could you," I said panicking. Pathetic, right?
Davis starts to advances towards me, I don't give him the chance to touch me as I step away from him. Katy doesn't say a single word to me as I look at her.
"I'm pregnant and Davis is the father and before you ask how long we started this, it's been two years already, okay? Now you know everything and he can finally leave you so we can be together." She just realizes what she said to me as I see her expression on her face changing and that's regret.
I can't breathe, I can't breathe, I flee the room while having a panic attack. I still manage to hear Davis and Katy try to catch up with me.
"There you are!" I see my father walks in front of me. "Tory, Tory?" He says my name with worry when he sees me panicking.
He doesn't waste his time as he grabs my face between his hands. "Breath, darling, breathe. Look at me, look only at me, and breathe. That's it, nice and easy, breathe."
When my panic attack is over, I jump into my father's arms and start to cry again. "Easy darling, what's going on, why are you so sad? It's your wedding day." When he says the last part, I cry harder than before.
"Davis, do you know what's wrong with my daughter?"
"The wedding is off, that's what going on." I finally manage to say, before Davis can say a single word.
"Tory." Davis try.
"Don't speak to me, you broke my heart, you both did," I say to Davis without looking at him. "Daddy, can you please go and announce to the guests that it won't be a wedding today? I, I can't deal with this right now. I'll explain later to you and mom."
"What did you do to my daughter?" I manage to stop my father before he goes to him and demands some answers. Then, he understands when he sees Katy go to Davis instead of me and the way she looks at him with love and concern in her eyes.
"Guys, what are you doing here? The wedding is about to starts." My mother comes to us as Judy follows close by.
"Rose, there will be no wedding today. I'll explain everything to you when we're back home." As he says this, he isn't looking at my mother but at the two people that he's disappointed with and then I see his expression changes.
He smiles, he smiles in a moment like this. I think surprisingly.
"Change of plans, we are going to go now. Let Davis and Katy explains the situation to the guests. You owe at least that to my daughter."
"Is it okay for me to go back home with you guys?" I don't have the strength yet to go to the apartment that I share with him. Judy, can you please grab the things that I left here and brings them back to my parent's house?" I ask her. Please say yes, say yes. Please, please.
"Of course, don't worry about it." I'm revealed to hear her say that.
"Tory?" Now, it's Katy who's trying to talks to me.
A couple of things are happening in my head right now. The most accurate is that I want to punch her face and I'm not a violent person and besides, I would never do that to a pregnant lady. Her a lady, yeah right! Was she a lady when she slept with him all this time. Two years, two years, and I didn't see it coming. Like I said earlier, I'm pathetic.
" Don't say my name like we're friends, we aren't friends anymore. A real friend would have never done what you did. You slept with Davis for two years and then got pregnant." I say to her as I look at her belly, where their baby is growing.
I can't hate the baby, he or she did nothing to me. He's innocent in this story, just like me. "I hope you have a healthy baby." I don't say more and leave them with that.
