Chapter 10 [Part 1]
My alarm clock went off and I woke up. Today’s the day I’m going to marry Li, I can’t wait to see him, the last time I saw him was after our engagement party. We both agreed that I should stay here and not see each other until we were going to get married. The past few days we just talked on the phone. Li has called me about ten times every day. I picked up my phone and switched it on. It started ringing, I knew it was Li before looking at the caller ID.
“Morning beautiful,” Li greeted. Li’s voice is unbelievably sexy, I could listen to it all day.
“Morning,” I replied.
“How are you feeling?” Li asked.
“Good,“ I lied.
“I know you’re lying, tell me the truth,” Li said firmly.
“Ok I’m a bit nervous,” I admitted.
“Why? There’s no reason to be nervous, everything will be fine, you’ll see. We will be married soon, my sexy mate will be in my arms and will be mine, all mine,” Li muttered the last part dreamily.
“Really? You think everything will be ok?” I asked and didn’t comment on Li’s last words.
“I don’t think, I know it will be ok,” Li said confidently.
“So you’re not nervous at all?”
“No I’m too excited, I’ve waited so long for this,” Li told me.
Just then Jenny came in my room and told me it was time to get ready.
“Li I have to go,”
“Ok I’ll see you at the alter,” Li said.
“Bye beautiful,” Li replied. I ended the call and took a shower. I changed into my underwear and put on a robe. I went downstairs and made breakfast which was sugared waffles and whipped cream. I know it’s not a healthy breakfast but I am nervous and sugar always calms my nerves a little.
I went back upstairs and Jenny helped me with my hair and makeup. I straightened my hair and Jenny gave me some random curls. I did my normal make up routine and put on my dress. The dress had cost a fortune but I paid for it with Lincoln’s credit card. It was pretty long and elegant with a purple ribbon around the waist. Purple is my favourite colour. It was a perfect fit and showed my arms and shoulders, it had thin shoulder straps it was amazing. I put on some purple heeled shoes to match.
“We should start to make our way to the church,” I said then followed Jenny to her car.
30 minutes later, we reached the church. I was told everyone was waiting. I had asked Jenny to give me away because I didn’t know anyone else.
We walked towards the double doors where the ceremony would be held, the bridesmaids who were Danny’s cousins and some of Li’s friends were already there in a line. We Stood behind them and then someone came out, it was Li’s best man and friend, Danny.
“You’re here, I’ll let everyone know,” Danny said and disappeared. He was back a minute later and gestured us to come in. One by one the bridesmaids walked in. Then Jenny held out her arm to me, I took hold of it and we walked in together.
All the guests were standing. I looked to the front and there he was, Li. He saw me instantly and didn’t take his eyes off me. When I reached him, he smiled at me, I smiled back.
Then the priest spoke.
“We are gathered here today to witness the marriage of Lincoln James and Sage Ann Smith,” The ceremony is going to be quick and simple because I wouldn’t be comfortable in a long one.
“Do you Lincoln James take Sage Ann Smith to be your wife?” the priest asked Li.
“I do,” Li said with confidence.
“And do you Sage Ann Smith take Lincoln James to be your husband?” the priest asked me.
“I do,” I replied.
“Now let the exchange of rings take place,”
Danny opened a box and held it out to Li who took out the two rings he had given me and placed them on my finger. Then Danny came to me and I took out Li’s ring and slid it on his finger.
“I know present you as husband and wife,” the priest announced before looking at Li “You may kiss your bride,”
I looked at Li, we looked deeply into each other’s eyes for a second and then Li leaned down and kissed my right cheek leaving tingles, I blushed and so did Lincoln. I’m glad he didn’t kiss my lips, it would have been embarrassing with so many people watching. Then everyone started cheering and came up to us to congratulate us.
Li took my hand and led me out of the church where the guests followed. Pictures were taken of us together. I hate having my picture taken. Li realised this and announced we were leaving. The guests wished us luck. before Li led me to his car.
When we reached his car, Li did something I wasn’t expecting. He wrapped his arms around me and pulled me into a hug. It felt great, I felt tingles and I hugged him back. We stayed that way but then Li picked me up and swung me around a couple of times and I had to hold on tight to him.
“Li,” I warned.
“I’m sorry, I’m just so happy. We’re finally married and I haven’t seen you for 2 days, I’ve missed you so much. I can touch you now to feel sparks whenever I want and as many times I want,” Li said and hugged me again to feel more sparks.
“You feel the sparks too?” I asked.
“Yes,” Li replied.
“Why?” I asked curiously.
“We’re mates. we’ll always feel them,” was Li’s short explanation.
Li gave me a nod and smiled, I smiled back which made him hold me tighter.
“Li can we go home now?” I asked as people were staring.
“Don’t you like public displays of affection?”
“No,” I admitted.
“Why? Are you ashamed to be seen with me?” Li asked in a hurt voice.
“No, it’s just people are watching us,”
“So I don’t want people watching us,”
“Ok let’s go home,” Li sighed.
Li carried me to the front passenger door of his car, opened it and put me in the seat. Then he put the seat belt on me and shut the door. He got in the driver’s seat and drove us home.
When we arrived, Li turned to me and took off my seat belt before saying “Stay there,”
“Why?” I asked in confusion.
I stayed where I was, Li got out the car and came to me. He picked me up into his arms and carried me into the house to the couch and sat down with me in his lap. We stared at each other, I put my arms around him and put my head on his chest. Li didn’t seem to like that.
“Don’t hide your face,” Li told me.
“I’m not,” I looked up at Li. He looked into my eyes with so much love that it made me blush. He smiled and then touched my cheek, our faces were only inches apart. He leaned in and his nose touched mine. He closed his eyes, tilted his head to the side then put his lips on mine.
After what seemed like ages, I pulled away. That kiss was amazing! Sparks were flying everywhere just like fireworks.
“What’s wrong?” Li asked nervously.
“Nothing I just want to get out of this dress,” I replied. It’s a nice dress but I can’t wear it all day.
“Great idea, I’ll help you,” Li said before going to the zip on the back of my dress and pulled it down. At the same time, he trailed his fingers down my bare back giving me tingles. He went to the straps of my dress to pull them down but I stopped him.
“No Li,” I tried to get out of his arms, Li wouldn’t let go of me.
“Let me go Li,”
Li didn’t let go, instead he took me upstairs and lay me on the bed. He got on top of me and started kissing me down my neck. It felt good but I wasn’t ready yet.
“Li stop,” I pushed Li away and got off the bed. He sighed, walked out of the room and shut the door.
I took off the dress and my heels to be left in only my underwear. Then something happened, I felt dizzy. The room started spinning and I heard cracking noises, it was my bones. I felt pain all over my body. I screamed then looked at myself and suddenly the room seemed to be getting smaller and smaller. Wait a minute it’s me, I’m shrinking.
Suddenly, I hit the floor. I got up but was too low on the ground and seemed to be crouching for some reason so I sat and the room looked much bigger than it used to and what’s all this white stuff all over my body? My underwear seems to have also disappeared. Oh no I’m naked. What the hell is going on? What just happened?
