- I distributed my mom's wedding invitation card to Alexa and Mark at school. They opened and checked it. Mark smiled and looked at me.
- "I am going to be there, count me in." He beamed, looking at me. I smiled back at him. Alexia cleared her throat. I turned to face her.
- "And you? Are you gonna be there or?" I asked, hoping she would come. She won't want to say no to me. After all, she was my best friend. This was the least I could do for my mom, to show my full support for her wedding. Even though it hurts a lot to see her saying her vows with another man on the altar while my father was still bedridden.
