He was going to put the ring. I pressed into my father for support. I couldn't take this but who was I to complain, He wouldn't stop even if he wanted to. I could see the distress in his eyes. None of us wanted this but fate was bound to puppet us. Just as he was about to complete the vow, I saw my cousin pull her finger. You could say my heart almost jumped out of my throat. It was so unexpected. The ring dropped to the ground and made this hollow ringing sound. The one question was why was Lucy rejecting marriage?
"" Marriage isn't a ring worn or the paper signed. It is not something endured but savored. It is the union of two hearts beating as one, each that would sacrifice for the other's happiness and wellbeing. Marriage is meant to be perfect and not a compromise. I can't marry you King Eric because you've found someone already and I wouldn't want to be the wedge..."
They both turned in my direction the second Lucy said those words. I started into Eric's eyes; They shimmered like stars. My heartbeat would not stop hitting against my rib cage so hard. I held my breath the moment he picked up the ring and walked down the altar.
What was happening?
My eyes dutifully followed him as he got closer and closer until he finally stopped. Did he change his mind about the marriage? My mind was really in shambles.
