“I now pronounce you husband and wife. Now, Nino, you may kiss the bride.”
Everyone cheers as the happy couple share their first kiss
as a married couple. It’s barely even a kiss with how much Nino is smiling, but
that makes it even cuter. Some of us weren’t sure if he would ever manage to
drag Alya to the altar and just like everyone else, I’m clapping and smiling,
happy that he finally did it. But unlike the others, I have another reason to
be smiling. As I watch them walk back down the aisle, my mind travels back to
the day it all began.
It’s the first day of school and five year old me is a
nervous wreck. With my mother’s hand in my right and clutching a brand new
sketchbook in my left, I walk with my head held as high I can handle into the
room of fourteen other children. I try not to cry as my mother lets go of my
hand and tells me to be brave. I’ve never been brave, she knows that. She says
I’ll make lots of friends. That’s another thing I’ve never been good at.
