Thank you for reading
As my father walked me down the aisle I looked back on my childhood through till now. This moment, when I become Mrs. Turner. Nothing in the world mattered more to me than Skyler and Preston. My heart pounded in my chest looking at Preston in his uniform. How bitter sweet of a moment it was knowing soon he would be leaving me once again. Trying hard not to cry I continued to look only at Preston.
The minister then asked my dad, “Who has prepared the woman for marriage?” My father answered with a small frog in his throat. “Her mother and I.” In that moment my father gave my hand to Preston. He looked at him and said, “She is a rose, a flower with many layers. Each layer makes her more beautiful. Please, cherish my rose and keep her safe.” My dad stepped back. Preston got down on one knee soon stating, “I will” and kissed my hand.
Skyler wrote a poem in school and she felt it fit to read now.
In Her Eyes
The depth of a father’s love shows in his daughter’s eyes.
What’s known is what’s shown from sunset to sunrise.
A foundation built on more than just what is spoken.
It’s commitments kept and promised that go unbroken.
An emotion so immense that nothing in this world can erase.
The permanent impression of love is tattooed upon her face.
A relation so peculiar that only the two can understand,
Yet so immaculate it’s obvious that, by God, it was planned.
Preston I love you.
(Michelle W. Emerson)
I said my vows…
I vow to be as wonderful to you as you have been for me. I will cherish you, love you, and stand by your side through anything and everything we are put through. Sometimes, I wondered if love is worth fighting for. Then you came back into my life and I was ready for war. Preston, you swore to protect our country. I stand here in front of family and swear to protect your heart.
My dearest Wisdom, I never knew how capable of loveing someone I was till I met you. You have had my heart for as long as I can remember. I vow to love you, and be there for you and Skyler always. The best part of being me is knowing I have you. I will never not love you.
Our minister spoke “Here is an example of how powerful love is. They were brought in and out of one another’s lives several times and now they will be once again taken from each other. This is what love is, this is what we are here celebrating, and this is Mr. And Mrs. Preston Turner. Preston PLEASE kiss your bride!”
The ceremony was about 15 minutes. Nothing fancy and nothing that will be in the running for wedding of the year. But it was ours, our time to shine and our time to feel as if the world was perfect with no interruptions. We decided to invite people to the house and have a casual barbecue to hang out and open gifts. We rented a karaoke machine and photobooth to help celebrate.
-BACK TO 3rd PERSON-
“I will be late getting back to your house. I have to stop and get your father from the air port. He was suppose to be here but his flight got delayed but don’t worry he will be here.” Dawn said checking the time to see when she had to leave. Preston added, “That’s great, I’m glad that Skyler and Wisdom will get to meet him.”
Everyone chatted for a little while and most decided they would stop at home to change and then head to Wisdom’s house.
Just then there was an explosion. Violet covered her head quickly and closed her eyes. “METEOR!” She yells as loudly as she could.
She quickly got on the phone, “Ambulance we need medical assistance now… PLEASE HURRY!” She hung up the phone and started to put out the fire as many people where doing. The screams from everyone was almost to much for Dawn to handle… “PRESTON… SKYLER…. WISDOM?” She looked around yelling their names.
With this having such a tragic ending I ask that we keep all comments here so that people who have not read it can have the shock that you did. This was NOT planned, my game decided what I had planned wasn’t good enough. So PLEASE no comment spoilers on my facebook pages, groups, or anywhere else other than here and in private messages.
