Wedding Dress

[Allen’s POV]

I am laying under the bed tilted, facing the door. Seven months has passed since she leave, I did not see her ever since. She is living in an apartment near her work. I know that aside from her work she is also busy for her upcoming wedding, which I don’t know when. Minutes passed but I am still looking at the door, maybe I am still hoping that she will come.

I was surprised when suddenly a paper was slipped underneath it, that’s why I immediately stood to see it. I heard footsteps of heals leaving so I look at the window to see it. I saw Jessica wearing a beautiful wedding dress. The gown is simple and also her hair. But to me she is the most beautiful bride.

I am looking at her from above, I saw sadness in her eyes. Then she open the door of the car that will bring her to the church where she will get married. I look at the paper that I holding, it turns out that it was a wedding invitation. The location, the date, and the time of the wedding was written.

What is this for? What does she mean when she brought this to me? Does she want me to stop you? Am I still the one you love? I want to stop you! But how? The wedding invitation is crumpled by hands, gradually tears fall in my eyes.

Never should’ve let you go

Never found myself at home

Ever since that day you walked right out the door

You were like beating heart that I can’t control

Even though we grown apart

My heart can’t seem to let you go

Thinking about the old times, when you kept me late at night

We use to mess around, laugh and play, fuss and fight

I guess it’s too late,I’m dancing alone

This chapters done, story goes on…

[Jessica’s POV]

From the hotel where I was fixed, I am riding a white car to the church where I will get married when I thought to stop at my home first.

“Mister could you stop at the house first.” I asked the driver

The car stop at the house, I went in. Nobody is in the house because everyone is at the church already. I went upstairs, I want to go to my room but I hesitated.Holding the invitation card I finally slipped underneath the door. Tears are streaming down my cheeks, I wiped it and quickly left. When I am outside I look towards the window of my room, Wondering if Allen was there looking at me but he didn’t. Then I rode the car.

Baby, I can’t believe that you are not with me

Cause you should be my lady

All I want is to set your heart free

I hear the sounds of the bell, the car stopped in front of the church. Someone opened it  for me and help me with my long gown.

My face was covered with a veil and I am holding a bouquet of white flowers. Walking slowly towards the altar.

[Allen’s POV]

Maybe at this time she is already getting married. The sheets of the beds are already crumpled because I was hitting it. This is more painful when I almost cant go to her prom, this is more painful because there is nothing I can do. I angrily hit the wall. Even though I know I can’t get out of this room, I am still hoping.

“Sh*t! Please this will be the last time! Grant me” I pleaded to the woman who cursed me.

But nothing happened, tears constantly flowing from my eyes.

But if you believe that you belong with him

Promise me, you won’t let anyone hurt you

Remember, I will always be here for you

Even if it kills me to see you..

[Jessica’s POV]

I walked towards Chris, he is looking at me. He seems to cry of joy, it more painful to me, I want to leave, run and escape to Allen. But I don’t want to hurt Chris.

My self is not entirely agree to marry him, hoping that Allen will show and prevent me into marrying. In the middle, I stopped and looked back at the door of the church, hoping that he would be there.

In that wedding dress, dress..

Oh see you in that wedding dress, dress

See you in that wedding dress, dress

Oh see you in that wedding dress, dress oh no!

“Do you Jessica, take Chris to be your lawfully wedded, husband, promising to love and cherish, joy and sorrow, sickness and health, through good times and bad, until death do you part?” the priest ask Jessica.

Snappin’ out this misery

Depression this ain’t me

But I always turn around 180 degrees

You got control of me and I, I can’t explain

Somebody call 911 emergency

Before I go insane

Since you move on

You toll a piece of me give it back

So much pain in my chest

Blacking-out, heart attack

I guess it’s too late, I’m dancing this dance alone

It’s too late!

[Allen’s POV]

That night, I did everything to get out of the room, but nothing happened, I pleaded to the girl but she didn’t appear.

Maybe this time, she already married, I am late, too late.

My chest is aching in rage at myself, because I could not stop her from marrying. Is it the reason why she brought the invitation? She want me to stop her?

But I cannot, maybe it really meant for her to get married.

[Jessica’s POV]

We are on the wedding reception, I am already married to Chris. Allen did not come.

“Jessica, are you okay?” Chris asked me.

“Ya I’m okay,” I said wiping my tears.

“Why are you crying?”

“Tears of joy, I guess?” I lied.

Baby, I can’t believe that you are my big me

Cause you should be my lady

All I want is to set you free

But if you believe that you belong with him

Promise me, you won’t let anyone hurt you

Remember, I will always be here for you

Even if it kills me to see you..

In that wedding dress, dress..

Oh see you in that wedding dress, dress

See you in that wedding dress, dress

Oh see you in that wedding dress, dress oh no!
