She made a promise to him before she left him that she was gonna hold unto him, never leave him, she was gonna love him. Now he was standing at the altar with another beautiful lady yet a stranger about to call out the vows because 'she' had broken her promise, she left him... He noticed still that the woman he held hands with was shivering in fear.

Silently, he cursed .

"Dang it!!"

Under the veil and in a sparklingly white wedding dress adorned with diamonds was a girl of 21 , she was forced to break up with Nicholas a guy she believed she loved, to marry the billionaire's son. Yes, there came a moment where she was madly in love with him still, he was way off her class, i mean he was too charming to lay eyes on her, it was at that moment she spilled her unrevealing tears and began asking herself.

"Where's Clara?. For goodness sake why did she stand this guy up?. Oh God this is a mess help me!."

" do you take Daniel Isaiah Thompson to be your lovely wedded husband, in sickness, in health, in poverty , in wealth and till death." She gulped. She exhaled and inhaled staring at the floor. She looked and scanned the crowd for her mom who was staring at her with pleading eyes. She shut hers and the tears that gathered spilled.

"Yes...... i do."

"And do you, Daniel Thompson, take Clarissa David to be your lovely wedded wife, in sickness, in health, in poverty, in wealth, till death.?"

"I do."

"I thereby, pronounce you both husband and wife....you may now kiss the bride." The priest happily said joining his hands together.
