Rachele as much as I'd love to I haven't. So what the hell is going on.
I look up at Harry trying not to cry.
"Please Harry, please tell me its not true....tell me its a joke."
Harry is inturruped by my sister Candice who walks in all giddy in a cute bride's maids dress. She's all peppy and cheery, which brings me back to reality. I'm about to get married to Chris. The love of my life, the father of my baby; but could he really have hurt Harry like Charry claims? I close my eyes and shake my head slowly trying to make sense of it all.
"Kennah its show time get off your lazy but and do a spin for me I want to see you in your beautiful gown."
I force a smile onto my face standing up and twirling slowly for my sister. She claps her hands jumping up and down and giggling. I mess with my curls looking around, gosh its hot in here.
Finally Alice and Violet poke their heads through the door grinning at me.
"It's time to go fairy princess."
They giggle along with Candice. I smile heading out into the hall, my sister following right behind me, Violet and Alice picking up the rear. Harry sits behind in my room sitting on my bed. He looks along my walls seeing random pictures from our childhoods.

He grazes over the ones of his sister, and I in ballet. Smiles at the painting my mother had painted of me and the girls in ballet. He gazes over random family ones and his heart almost stops when he sees the ones of me and him when we were little. We were promised to each other.
A lump rises in his throat as he lightly touches the pictures of us together. His eyes start to fill with tears when my father inturrupts him.
"C'mon man, our little girl is about to get married. I know your bummed that it's not to you, but wouldn't you rather be a part of her life rather than her not want you in it at all? She's pregnant with his kid son, she's never going to let him go."
Harry nods and forces a smile on his face.
"I'm very happy for her, i want her happy too...dad."
My father nods smiling. He puts his arm around Harry's shoulder as he leads him out of me room.
"You know i'd rather have the children mate within the family, but she's pregnant, and i don't know if she'll be too happy with us if she finds out your my son, and Violet is my daughter. She would feel lied to, betrayed even, and heck Violet would be just as pissed. Their hole lives they thought they were just friends."
Harry nods while he walks with my father.
"I promise father i wont say a word."
Father meets me at the ceremony and Harry sits beside Peter and the other boys. My father hooks his arm through mine and whispers to me.
"You look very gorgeous my little baby, your enchanting, just as beautiful as your sister and mother."
I grin at my father's kind words, my face getting red from embarassment.
"Daddy, not in public." I giggle as he leads me down the aisle to the music.
I look up as all the bridesmiads line up along the wall, their beautiful smiling faces looking directly at me. This makes me start to cry, all the people i love in one room sharing the best day of my life. My eyes start to water as Chris approaches me and my father. My knees almost give in and I almost stumble but he catches my arm pulling me back up.

"It'll be okay baby, i'm by your side, and never leaving again." He whispers to me.
That's it, i start really crying as I step up to the podium. The man speaks, and finally it's time for Chris and I to give our vows.
I nervously turn to him, and lightly clear my throat before speaking.
"I promise to give you the best of myself and to ask of you no more than you can give.
I promise to accept you the way you are.
I fell in love with you for the qualities, abilities, and outlook on life that you have, and won't try to reshape you in a different image.
I promise to respect you as a person with your own interests, desires, and needs, and to realize that those are sometimes different, but no less important than my own.
I promise to keep myself open to you, to let you see through the window of my personal world into my innermost fears and feelings, secrets and dreams.
I promise to grow along with you, to be willing to face change as we both change in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting.
And finally, I promise to love you in good times and in bad, with all I have to give and all I feel inside in the only way I know how ... completely and forever. "
I say off the top of my head. Chris smiles tears falling from his eyes as I finish my vows. He smiles confidently preparing his vow speech in his head. Finally he begins.
"Today, I want you to know how lucky I feel for having found the one perfect person for me, the one who suits me so comfortably and who gives me joy and boundless hope and anticipation for the future.
Every day we’re together, you do nothing but make me happy. The day we met was the day I became truly alive again, and today — our wedding day — I declare my love and devotion for you before the entire world.
I make a vow to stand by your side through the best and worst of times, and to give you the best of what I have from now until the end of our days."
I nod while he's speaking, my tears flooding from my eyes. When he finishes he takes my hands and looks me in the eyes grinning like a fool.
"You may kiss the bride."
Chris lifts me up into his arms and kisses me gently yet passionatly. This was the best day of my life, no exceptions. I'm in love.
